Alex Hoeffken on SoundBetter

Recording on demand with top sounding drums and innovative sounds tracked in a huge sounding room in the heart of Berlin, Germany.

I am a session drummer & sound designer, and I want to help you make an amazing record. I deliver high-quality drum tracks, percussion add ons, unique sounds and programming to bring your music to life.

I have been discovering unique drumsounds for a long time now, and I have been fortunate enough to call my passion my career. I love finding just the right sound and groove and capturing the best take for the song.

In my studio I search for the best sound for your song. I record drum tracks at my facility in Berlin, Germany. It's a big room, acoustically treated and features API and Neve style preamps and industry standard microphones.

Hit me up for details and let's start making music!
