Chris Castellitto on SoundBetter

Welcome, my name is Chris Castellitto and I'm the founder and owner of RECORD DRUMS ONLINE, based in London, UK. I've been providing remote recordings for the past 6 years to singers, producers, composers and music creators all over the world. The best part of all this? All clients will receive well crafted drum recordings in less than 48hrs.

Everything I record is done in my studio in West London. To be able to record drums on your songs all you need to do is to follow these few simple steps:

-Send me a rough mix of your song
-I will listen to it and send you a quote (prices vary depending on difficulty, length and specific requests by the client)
-Once you're happy with the quote just send me the same track without any MIDI drums and I will record over it. Then if you can, please let me know also the BPM of the song and at what sample rate you'd like me to record (44.1kHz, 48kHz, or other)
-Within maximum 48hrs I'll record and I'll email you back an MP3 of the first take of your song with the live drums.
-Once you send me the feedback I will record a second time making all the changes that you asked for.
-Usually 99% of the clients are happy after the second take, but in case there's need for more changes I offer one more take.

    Cristiano was great! Any drum changes or suggestions I had were recorded exactly how I imagined, and very quickly too. The recordings themselves were professional and I would definitely recommend Cristiano on your next project.

    Talented drummer and a room sound that required very little mixing.

    Working with Cristiano was incredibly easy. I sent him my track and he sent back a completed drum track on the exact day that he said he would. I asked for 1 revision and that was done immediately and is exactly what I wanted.

    I would highly recommend working with Cristiano. He is a true professional and a drummer with chops & good taste.

    It was cool working with Cristiano. He is very reactive and his music is great. I had received 4 perfect recorded drum tracks. He hoisted up my work to the best. I hope I will have the chance to work with him again and I would recommend Cristiano to anybody looking for great drums.

    Working with Cristiano was a pleasure. He is a skilled drummer, good with tempo and overall arrangement. Totally satisfied with his deliverables. He was too easy to communicate with and worked on my inputs seriously. I would consider him for my future assignments as well. Totally recommended.

    Cris has been my first choice drummer for over 10 years. Not only is he a fantastic drummer, but he is passionate, conscientious, organised and a pleasure to work with. And he always goes the extra mile. Whether I'm going in to the studio or want online drums, Cris is my go to guy

    Cristiano played the drums on my recently released debut single "Summer Leaves" - he did an amazing job, adjusted well to any comments that the producer had, and the end result was a drum track that really compliments and elevates the song! Would definitely love to work with Cristiano again in the future. Recommended!

    After working with Cristiano for one track I decided to work with him for a full EP. He has a great sense of rhythm even in odd time signatures which makes the songs breath and flow nicely. I especially loved his hi-hat skills. In terms of communication Cristiano is very responsive and understanding. He's my number one choice from now on!
