Need to track drums in LA, OC or San Diego

Post by Mattafact » Tue Nov 29, 2005 10:20 pm

I live in south OC so LA or SD are fine for the right place. Looking to spend no more than $250-300 a day for a great sounding room, good gear and an engineer that not only kicks ass but can tune drums and likes hard rock/punk. We'll be there for a day or two. I'll need the raw .wav and/or pro tools files.

www.myspace.com/my2dads is what we sound like.

Thanks guys.

Matt

Signature Sound in San Diego has a great sounding room and a wonderful mic selection. We have tracked drums there many times and have always been happy. Studio A has an API Legacy console. Blink 182, P.O.D. and Boxcar Racer have tracked here.

As far as an engineer, we have always used Mike Harris.

There are other great studios in San Diego, but this place seems to feel the best.

Good luck.

Hey Roy,
Thanks a lot. That place seems really nice. I shot them an email. If their rates are reasonable then I'm sold.

If Signature doesn't fit into your budget, give Kyle a call over at Ampersand. He has a good room and a great rate.

I sent an email to Signature Sound last week. The studio manager emailed me back asking for specifics, which I gave him, but I haven't heard back from him since.

That place looks awesome and I hope we can track there.

I need to contact Ampersand and see what they have to offer still.

I appreciate the help you've given me and I'll definately keep you posted.

Thanks again,
Matt
