Live Drum Tracks

Zack Albetta on SoundBetter

Real drums and a human drummer breathe life into music. I want to give your music that dynamic, in-the-moment, human touch. The drums create a sonic space for a song to live in. Let's make it a REAL space.

I have 20 years experience as a pro drummer which has taken me through three cities (Kansas City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta), and deep into multiple genres including jazz, soul, top 40, pop/rock, funk, blues, CCM, and more.

I run a simple, old-school mic setup: kick, snare, two overheads, and room/bottom snare/hihat, as needed. I love recording this way. I want to get the sounds right in the room first, then capture it all as one voice rather than manipulating everything individually in the box. My room is outfitted with custom treatment designed and built by platinum-selling engineer and master room tuner Tony Terrebone. There are plenty of gear arsenals larger than mine, and I'm ok with that. What I have is high quality and highly versatile. I'll mess with the tone of a drum before switching it out, and I'll change the placement of a mic before adding another one. After all, the gear doesn't make the music, you and I do.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
