Aaron Tosti on SoundBetter

You need modern drum sounds but you're tired of them not having FEEL. I've been doing that for almost my entire life. Lets collaborate ! I bring an exceptional feel to Rock, Pop, Indie, an singer-songwriter tracks....

I spend my days writing, recording, engineering, & mixing. I live in a Nashville studio with a live tracking room where I capture live instruments, real drums, and vocals. I create vintage drum samples. I aim to make every track I work on unique.

In the past I was a touring and recording indie-rock guy, now I make rhythm centered indie pop tracks.

In my earlier years, I've had the opportunity to record with producers such as Howard Benson, David Bendeth, and Aaron Sprinkle. I've toured and recorded for multiple artists over the years such as Golden Youth, Hawk Nelson, and Pax217. In addition, I've spent time as a drum technician for bands such as Underoath and Gym Class Heroes.

During my process, I like to get a vision of what the artist and/or producer wants. My goal is to capture the rhythm and character of that vision.

With 15+ years of experience, I've crossed over many genre's such as Rock, Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Country, Modern Folk, and Independent Post-Rock.

I bring all my experiences along side of every recording.

Let's create something amazing together. Contact me at the link at the top of my profile.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Aaron did a fantastic job once again. Got through 5 songs in just a few hours. He was open to feedback during the process and was willing to work with me to get the drums sounding exactly how I wanted. Punctual and professional, would recommend to anyone.

    Don’t give Aaron direction.
    Tell Aaron to do what ever Aaron thinks will be good and you will be happier with your song.

    Highly skilled, very fast and produces the result that you want. My track was a mess and he still found the perfect groove and sound for my song. It was a lot of fun working with Aaron and I hope we team up again!

    Aaron is an incredible drummer, recording engineer, and producer. His live drumming sounds amazing, and it feels really good. He knows when and where to play the right things on drums to make the song sound great. Great taste and grooves! Yes and Yes.

    In person he's warm and friendly and he has lots of creative music ideas. He also makes epic beats using samples in Ableton and Pro Tools and he plays keys and can create almost any sound you can imagine.

    Basically he's a badass drummer, producer, and songwriter who makes tracks that are fire!

    Aaron was so wonderful and fun to work with, and everything was completed in such a professional yet easygoing manner. I recorded an album with Aaron, and he was very receptive and attentive to what I wanted and how I wanted it to sound. He was always on top of it, having recordings for me to review and listen to in just hours. Aaron's first priority was my happiness with the project, yet he also offered his sound advice when I was looking for more options or didn't exactly know how to navigate it. He made me feel comfortable and uplifted throughout the process, and for that, I am so thankful.

    I've collaborated with Aaron a few times and it has always been a blast! His approach to drum tracking and production is so unique and refreshing. Very creative, efficient, and clearly communicates throughout the whole process. I highly recommend him and can't wait to work with him again in the future!

    Working with Aaron was such a great experience. I was working remotely and couldn’t physically be in the studio myself, It took a huge burden off of my shoulders to have Aaron, who I trust both creatively, from a part writing standpoint, and also as an audio engineer, who knows how to make drums sound great. Aaron worked fast and extremely professional. He did not treat me like a side gig, he prioritized my project, and made sure he did a great job, and just wanted his client to be happy. He is someone who really cares about what he does, and I highly, highly recommend working with him.

    I actually got to work with Aaron a couple months ago and he really cares about making the sound the absolute best, SO detail oriented, thorough, and will go the extra mile to make sure it’s what you expected. That was my experience! Best kind of person to do work like this

    Working with Aaron is a blast. He went above and beyond and put the time, care, and emotional energy the song needed. He is efficient and has one of the best attitudes in the game. An incredible session drummer and solid producer. Hire this guy.

    Aaron is a phenomenal drummer, person, and creator. I've worked with Aaron on the road as a Drum Tech for Underoath. He was always able to produce the exact sound out of Aaron Gillespie's kit that I was looking for each night while at Front Of House. Also, we had the pleasure of collaborating together on a personal recording project after one of our tours during some downtime in Nashville.

    More! If you put Aaron in a room with other pro-drummers and they all took turns playing the same song you'd get more with Aaron. His emotion speaks through his playing. Is he skilled? YES.
    Is he versatile? YES. He just adds that something "more" to the sound. We've hired him to track in our studio & remotely via his studio. Paul & Marnie (the Hollybells) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plH5vXq

    Only have great things to say about working with Aaron. We worked on a track together where I already had some drums laid out. Aaron tracked with precision while adding his own style and feel to the mix, and communicated with me throughout the process. You can't substitute a real drummer, and Aaron is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

    Not only is Aaron a fantastic drummer, He truly has an ear for what parts fit in each song. He pays great attention to detail when it comes to each mic being placed according to the room and the kit. He is truly great at what he does.

    Aaron defines what a great drummer is. Pocket, tone, and space! His drums always sound great when they come to me and the choice of space and groove are always perfect for the track! I highly recommend using Aaron for all your drumming needs! Don't waste time programming fake drums when you could get the real thing!
