Alex Ramos on SoundBetter

Hi! I am Alex, a full-time studio drummer and educator, who´s passion is to play and record music. I´ve recorded hundreds of tracks for artists around the world throughout my career, and I´m always looking forward to meeting new musicians! I have my own recording studio, so feel free to contact me anytime so we can start discussing our project!

Thank you so much for checking out my Gig!
Why should you work with me, you ask?
I will write, perform and record drums for your song (or reproduce your ideas) and deliver professional quality drum multi-tracks. When you order my package, all of this is included:

-Up to 16 professional sounding channels
-FREE Unlimited revisions until final delivery
-FREE Premixed/Processed drum stems (eq, comp, gate, etc) ready for you to volume/fader mix at your taste!
-All RAW separate stems used in the recording, fully unprocessed and ready for professional mixing
-2 stereo mixed full drumkit stems (pre-mastered and at -8Db)

With this package you get Premium value for the price of a Standard/Basic package! Though I specialize mostly in Metal and Rock, I won´t shy away from any other genre: I can play anything from tasty fills and polyrhythmic grooves to blastbeats and fast double bass.
Really looking forward to hear about new projects and to collaborate with other fellow musicians, so leave me a message, let´s talk!
Cheers,
-Alex

Interview with Alex Ramos

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I worked on a multi-band project for a recording studio. I performed drums on a cover that we tracked in order to showcase the studio´s potential.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Always striving to improve the quality of my product

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Digital. Because besides being alot more price friendly, we´ve come a long way in digital tech.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: My pledge is always that I will use my full potential for each and everysong, regardless of any aspect. And that their satisfaction is my priority.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: That I get to be a part of some really amazing art. Music is what we use to describe feeling that cannot be put unto words.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: To be honest I don´t think there is a single question that I can pinpoint as being asked multiple times. Everyone is diferent - but interaction is always friendly and professional.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: That music is a hobbie, and not a job.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: Most common question has to be: "Can I add my own twists, turns and ideas when I track the song?"

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: The better and more detailed your guitar/fullband guide track sounds, the more you will inspire the musician you are hiring.

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Drumsticks, practice pad, doublepedal, metronome and a complete hi-hat stand.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: Over the past 12 years, I´ve recorded hundreds of songs and played a myriad of live shows. Self taught in the beginning, started private lessons with one of the best drummers in the country, and a passage through Berklee online where I completed a "Rock Music" specialization course with Rod Morgenstein, graded A+. Most of my professional time is spent between local sessions, online recording sessions, shows and teaching drums.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: I like to think I have a nice balanced blend of skills. Some speed, alot of dynamics and a good ear for music.

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: Devin Townsend. He is extremely creative and will not set boundaries to his art.

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: Start with the source. Spend more time in making things sound good in tracking, rather than wasting more time in post-prod.

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: Almost every genre of metal and rock, though I won´t shy away from playing modern Pop music

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Again, I must say my strength lies on writing drum parts and creating amazing songs with other musicians. I also take instructions very well, as I respect the artist´s final word about any aspect that relates to his music.

  33. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  34. A: My strength in drums is definitively songwritting. I can create details that really highlight important parts of the song but I also know when to bring the rhythm a notch down so that there is space for other instruments to come through and let the song breathe.

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: Typically there is a discussion with the other musicians about the song and their general expectation of the drum parts, just so we can align our mindsets. On the recording process I like to try ALOT of ideas to see what best fits each part. From there, an audible is delivered so that we can start revising.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I´m currently playing a Pearl Decade maple "22, "10, "12, "16, Mapex black panther limited edition snare or Tama SLP steel snare (according to the job), Czarcie Kopyto double pedals and a selection of Zildjian and Sabian cymbals. I´m running Shure, Audix and Lewitt mics on a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 through Reaper.

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: Sebastian Lanser, Matt Gartksa, Nolly

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: I write, perform and record drums.
