Mike Hogg (Drums)

Live and programmed drums

Mike Hogg (Drums) on SoundBetter

I've toured across my home country and played on songs you can hear on the radio. My goal is to collaborate with musicians around the world, creating acoustic and/or programmed drums to bring out the best in the song.

My name is Mike - I've been playing drums for 20 years. After a years of playing live, I have turned my focus to remote session work. I play drums for the love of music, and that's what I bring to my session work. My focus is collaboration and playing for the song. This can be done through video calls and version iteration.

The services I offer include:

Package A - Acoustic drums tracked and edited in a high-end recording studio (most expensive, depends on studio chosen)
Package B - Acoustic drums tracked and edited in my home studio
Package C - Programmed drums (least expensive)

In the sample mp3, you will hear recent recordings from all three of these options.
0:00 to 1:58 - Tracked in studio with engineer, mixed and mastered
2:00 to 3:37 - Tracked in my home studio, mixed and mastered elsewhere
3:38 to 4:34 - Tracked in my home studio, mixed and mastered by the band which hired me

With all three of these options, we can collaborate as much or as little as you like. This can look like iterating drum parts back and forth until we find the right groove, or, I can track the song as I see fit and send a final product. The final product for all three packages will be wav files for each track, and any samples I added.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I would be happy to chat about your project and see if we are a good fit.
