Groovebox Studios Uses Kickstarter To Put The Music First. Groovebox Studios set up shop in Detroit's Russell Industrial Center 16 months ago with a simple premise: one band, one room, one take.
It's not a new concept, but it's one that's fallen out of favor in the remix era. One-take-only means musicians need to come to the studio polished, practiced and ready to play. The resulting recording gets no editing and no overdubs. Royce Haas, a back-to-basics rock-and-roller, records music with Groovebox under the stage name Scarecrow Jones. He's a fierce supporter of the project and likens the studio's approach to the early Sun Records sounds of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. "You read the background on that stuff: It was one room, one take, and listen to how great it is," he said. Sound Engineer Jeff "Fuzzy" Wenzel runs Groovebox with partner Shawn Neal, who handles video production. Wenzel said Groovebox modeled its project after Detroit's Motown Records and Seattle's SubPop records.
"Everything is very fractured," he said.
FAQ - Ron Wikso - Pro Drum Tracks & Multitrack Loops - Touring & Recording Drummer - Foreigner, Cher, Richie Sambora, David Lee Roth and more. Check here for answers to some commonly asked questions about the drum tracks I can provide for your project.
I will add to this FAQ as I get more and more questions asked of me. Of course, if you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me and I'll be happy to answer them. What's the best format for my song files? You can send your tracks using common file formats such as WAV, Broadcast WAV, AIFF and Sound Designer II. Any of those formats are fine for me to track to because I know Nuendo, the recording software that I use, can read them. How do I send you my song files? The easiest and most efficient way is for me to set up a Dropbox folder where you can just drag and drop your song files and I can then upload the completed drum files.
There are other ways too though. You simply need to make a stereo mix of your song, without drums, and save it as a .WAV file. What format do you send me the drum tracks in? I can work with files at 16 or 24 bit and 44.1 or 48 khz. How do I pay you?
Blasting Room Studios. Gear. Online Session Drummer - Andy Gentile. Your Daily Fill. Hey everyone!
I’ve started this site as an outlet for original recordings and compositions I’ve made over the years. More than often I’ve heard songs come on shuffle through my car stereo speakers, and I began to think that it’d be really nice to have them all online in one location for myself and other people to (hopefully) enjoy them whenever they wanted. ..but anyway.
I’d like to open the floor to anyone seeking a drummer or anyone seeking just a drum track for their demo or final recordings. Anyway, I’m always open to ideas, comments, questions, concerns, etc. If you have anything to say, check out the Contact section. Doo kah tu, andy. Real Drum Tracks for Your Project.
