PROFESSIONAL DRUM TRACKS
Sean offers an online drum tracking service, where you send your songs to Sean, and he sends back the drum tracks recorded in a commercial studio. Now your songs can benefit from the professional sound and human feel, groove, and energy that only a pro drummer in a pro studio can deliver.
DW Artist Sean Shannon has over 30 years of studio and world touring experience to make your projects sound pro. You can request a quote here, and send the songs to email@example.com.
“Man, you drummers that can groove that hard to a click are alien! From another planet!”
Sean’s drumming history includes international touring and recording acts like Molly Hatchet, Pat Travers, Brian Howe’s Bad company, Outbound Road, Rob Rock, Les Dudek, and many others.
“Other than Tommy Aldridge, Sean is my favorite drummer you have had in the Pat Travers Band……..Would love to see him back in the PTB…”
Sean uses DW Drums, pedals, and hardware and Zildjian cymbals, and typically records his kit through the Amek/Neve console and rack gear at his commercial studio location. The drum tracks can be sent as individual tracks, or can be pre-mixed for you.
If you are using a drum playback program like EZ Drummer or Superior Drummer, Sean can play/program the drums for your songs and send you a MIDI track. (This is great for metal and allows you to pick your kit sound and easily update parts). It is also possible for Sean to make MIDI tracks from the tracks he records with his DW kit to give you both the real kit and MIDI tracks.
Note: If you have a drum part you’d like to replace, or an idea drum track, send that for reference along with any notes about what you are trying to get out of the track. Sean can create a drum part that works for the song and fits your vision. Most musical styles can benefit from real drums and/or percussion.
