Mack Longpré on SoundBetter

I'm a seasoned session/touring drummer with multi-platinum Island Records artist Banners, Juno Award winner Tara Kannangara, indie-pop darling Zinnia, art-metal sensation Future Machines, Andrew Barker, Nature Boy, Devah Quartet, Ninja Funk Orchestra, and Living Fossil, among many others, and I have decades of experience on stage and in the studio.

My stylistic portfolio includes pop, rock, folk/roots, jazz, r&b, funk, electronic, metal, etc. and my studio offers a range of drum kits with a sizeable mic locker. I can easily accommodate the perfect sound for your track, be it powerful, radio-ready pop sounds, swampy, open roots vibes, or delicate, brush and percussion ambience. You can trust me to deliver a high-quality drum track with minimal turn-around time.

I am a strong believer in artistic collaboration, and I'm equally comfortable building a groove from scratch, or replicating a specific part that you've already written. Regardless of your workflow, I promise to deliver exactly what you want for your track with the highest degree of audio quality and musical integrity. Once your song is finished, I can deliver raw or processed stems, or a stereo drum mix based on your needs. No matter what, my mission is to always give you whatever you need to elevate your music.

In addition to creating and recording drum parts, I can offer drum programming, as well as editing/mixing pre-recorded or programmed drums.

Whether you want clean, hard-hitting drums for your pop record, super-weirdo, warm and crunchy tones for your art project, or anything in between, I'd love to work with you to help bring your musical vision to life. So click the contact button above and let's start a conversation about your music!

    I love working with Mack. Not only does he deliver professional-grade drum tracks, he's also just great to work with, and elevates the creative product. He inevitably ends up cooking up a drum part that sounds way better than what I had imagined to begin with. The best!

    I recently hired Mack to play on some songs for an upcoming album. It was a pleasure to work with him as we shuffled ideas back and forth refining the parts that worked best for each piece. Beyond his fine drumming, the tracks themselves sounded terrific, and Mack’s thorough knowledge of the instruments in his collection, his mics, recording techniques and mixing skills set him apart. What he delivered to us was simply excellent, and I can heartily recommend Mack for your next project.

    Mack is the best. After 20+ tracks working together he has never failed to deliver exceptional sounding drum tracks for me. Mack is intuitive, easy to work with, and quick to understand what you are looking for. He's also quick to deliver!

    Not only is Mack an exceptionally talented and versatile drummer but he is also accountable and easy to work with. I have worked with Mack in a number of contexts: jazz, pop, rock, indie and folk and in all cases he enhances the artist's vision though thoughtful performances and meticulous sounds.

    I highly recommend Mack for any session that needs drums or percussion. Mack is the rare drummer that can bring high energy and grit to a rock gig or the soft touch needed for a jazz session. In addition to his abilities as a drummer, I can vouch for the effort and dedication he has put into the craft of recording, engineering and mixing his drum parts. This combination of talent, gear and experience is rare and makes Mack a great choice for any session. Plus Mack is a great guy that brings a positive, thoughtful vibe to any session I've worked with him. Hire Mack!

  6. Review by Neil Whitford

    Mackenzie is an immaculate professional who has worked with me on dozens of recordings. He brings excellent musicality and a really great attitude and vibe to the tracks. I highly recommend hiring him for your project!
