I've been listening to all your records since I was a kidYep, all me on the records since 1980, and thanks!
The sounds are at least 90% me, and the rest is up to the engineer if necessary. I'm basically on my own in terms of sounds, whether it's acoustic drums & cymbals, or samples (I also do all of the drum programming/sound-design as required.)
We get plenty of respect, particularly from fellow recording artists. They know full well how difficult it can be recreating parts and sounds to the extent that we do. I was very flattered when one of my heroes said he couldn't do what I do, and another major drumming star said that I'm "a great drummer"
huge amounts of respect for you and what you do
honored to be able to speak to you on this forum
do you have a favorite record or song you guys have recreated that you are particularly proud of?
