Andrew Johansen on SoundBetter

Listen to my soundcloud tracks on the right side to hear sound bites of me recording drums in my studio.

My name is Andrew. I'm a New York Session & Touring Drummer.

Regardless of what part of the world they live in, I record High-Quality Professional Grade drum and percussion tracks for Producers and Songwriters remotely from my studio using the power of the Internet.

I record in a dry and dead room so that you can make the drums sound as small or as large as you want using your favorite reverb plugin. A variety of vintage and modern drums/cymbals are at hand so that I can best match the sonic needs that the track calls for.

I don’t use just one setup. With my knowledge of audio engineering, I think about every aspect of the sound I’m capturing. From the drums I choose to the way I tune them to where I place the microphones—no detail is overlooked.

When working with me, you will be able to hear me record the drums on your song in real time at full quality coming right out of my Pro Tools rig. We’ll be able to simultaneously talk in real time as well. It’s as if you’re in the room with me, except you don’t have to be. You can live in any part of the world. All you have to do is click on the link I send you.

Once the drums are approved by you, I also have the ability to either premix the drums for you, mix your entire song or send you the raw stems from all 10 of my microphones for someone else to mix. It’s your choice.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
