Aidan Lowe on SoundBetter

I'm an Australian drummer living in Berlin, tracking drums at my own purpose-built private studio, Lumen Studio Berlin. I approach client's music from a producer's perspective - creating unique drum sounds specially tailored to your music through tuning, equipment selection, micing setups, and post processing / effects.

Lumen Studio Berlin was purpose-built to allow producers and artists to have live drums recorded on tracks, without the expense and time associated with traditional studio hire, setup and equipment transport.

I'm able to offer flexibility and a fast workflow/turnaround, creating more opportunities to have a living breathing musician on songs instead of programmed or looped samples.

I create completely unique, original sounds and parts tailored to each track after discussions with the artist/producer, working with acoustic drums / percussion / programming.

I contribute my own ideas for production / multi tracking / effects / postprocessing as the song requires, and send separate raw and processed stems to my clients to use as they please.

I'm tracking in a tight, acoustically treated space with high end Neve and API-style preamps, outboard EQ and Compression, industry-standard mics from Neumann, Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Vanguard, EV, Shure, Cascade, high end conversion from Cranborne Audio.

I have over 20 years experience as a full-time professional musician in Australia and Europe.

    Aidan provided the drums for a cover track I am recording.
    He is a very talented, skilled, open minded and hard working musician and his drums really brought the track to life. Very smooth delivery and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended! Thanks again Aidan

  3. Review by Paul Santner

    I've happily worked with Aidan on a number of projects. He's always looking to contribute to the beauty of the whole picture, by making careful and tasteful choices. When it comes to both his playing and the recording/producing process. And above all he is a sweetheart and it's super nice to work with him.
