Need Professionally Recorded Drum Tracks?

There are many “on-line” session drummers to choose from but not all have the same experience or offer the same quality results as Chris does (resume below). Chris will create and record drum parts for your Song, Jingle, or Score at CDR Studios here in NYC and then ftp them back to you as quickly as needed. CDR Studios is a state of the art drum tracking studio designed by Chris Harmaty & Chris DeRosa and custom built by Harmaty's company Audio Structures (the folks that built Alicia Keys studio “Jungle City" and "Sorcerer Sound" among others).

To get started all that is needed is an mp3 reference of your song along with any specific details, ideas, or examples you may have for me to reference to create your custom drum track. Chris will ad a click to your reference mp3 and record 3 complete drum versions for you including a stereo mix down of each pass for you to reference (you will get the option of a redo). Chris can also record a percussion track if desired and all the recorded files (stems) will be compatible with any software program you currently use or prefer.

An example of 3 versions Chris can record:
1st The version you describe
2nd The version from Chris’s perspective
3rd A totally different take on the track (something you may not have thought of).

All tracks are recorded to a click so you can combine or edit the 3 versions as you like. Chris can also include single hits and separate drum fills to use as needed. All instruments and recording gear used are of the highest quality available to give you the best drum track and sounds possible.

To see/hear Chris’s work go to:

Chris has worked with such Producers as Stuart Epps (Led Zeppelin, Elton John), J. Chris Griffin (Madonna, Kanye West, John Legend, Missy Elliott, Janet Jackson), Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) Giancarlo Vulcano (30 Rock), "General" George Fullan (The Rolling Stones, Cyndi Lauper, Twisted Sister, Dream Theater, Cheap Trick), Jose "Cheo" Pardo (Los Amigos Invisibles), Roger Fife (Tricky), Steve Eigner (Nelly), Daniel Rey (White Zombie, The Ramones), Kramer (Urge Overkill, Ween, Butthole Surfers, Daniel Johnston) among many others.

Whether it's a 3 minute pop tune, a 30 second jingle, or an entire album side with complicated time changes Chris can do the job for you. Being very easy to work with and Chris can offer your music a "sound and style" to take it to the next level. Chris offers reasonable single and multiple song tracking rates (available upon request) so please email chris (at) chrisderosa (dot) com for more info.

Ps, Chris is also available for any other specific drumming needs you may have such as writing sessions, live shows, tours, rehearsals, and video shoots.
