Matt Graff & The Koop Studio on SoundBetter

I'm a Session Drummer and Audio Engineer that's played on hundreds of songs. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production and Engineering and have since been playing and recording drums, as well as engineering/producing records out of my studio, The Koop, just outside NYC.

I'm here to offer my services as both a session drummer and engineer:

Drums: I play a lot. I play about 100 gigs a year with a diverse list of artists. Everything from Pop-rock to Funk to Metal to Reggae to Jazz...you name it. Being both a drummer and engineer, I do a lot of session drum work for clients. My studio is geared toward capturing amazing drum sounds and I've developed both the playing and engineering skills to provide tight, expressive, expertly recorded drums to countless recordings.

Engineering: Whether it's recording, editing, mixing or mastering, my goal is to help my clients realize their musical vision. I use the tools at my disposal to help squeeze every last drop of nuance, character, depth and raw emotion out of each production. It's not about turning knobs and pressing buttons, it's about being invested.

How it works: I can route my DAW thru a ZOOM call so you can watch me and hear me play in high fidelity, no need for revisions! Remote mixing can also be done this way.

I can send you processed or raw audio, stereo mixes or multitrack files. I can even send you multiple takes for you to choose from or piece together. However you want to work is good for me!

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
