What’s new for 2013? Drum tracks, Gear, a Book and more….

18 Jan

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year with copious amounts of food and drink! 2013 has started with a bang and I’ve got loads of things in the pipeline, but first let’s have a quick look back at how 2012 was for me and OnlineSessionDrums.

It begun with the small matter of buying our first house, followed by the sizeable yet enjoyable task of building my drum studio, which if you’ve read this blog in the past you’ll know all about (if not check out the studio build blog entries complete with pics). Having my kit set-up and miked 24/7 in my own house has been amazing. It’s meant I can record a lot more drum tracks and do it without having to leave home and lug all my gear around. The last few months of 2012 saw me record more drum tracks than ever before, so things have really taken off.

If 2012 was good, I intend for 2013 to be even better! In the next couple of days my new Audix i5 mic will arrive so I’ll be able to offer 8 separate tracks as standard (Snare top, Snare bottom, Bass, 2 toms, 2 overheads, hi-hat). By the end of this month I’ll also have my new imac so life’ll get much easier. The bigger screen will be great for mixing etc and I’m also intending to get Logic. Some of the stuff I recorded at the end of last year is being released in the next couple of months, I’ll keep you informed.

Aside from the online sessions I’ve also started doing a few drum lesson videos which I intend to do a lot more of this year.

Plus, I’m writing a drum related book (sshh, apart from my family and friends, I’ve been keeping this under wraps!). More to be revealed in a couple of months……

2013 is proving busy already!

Ta for reading, I’m off to impatiently wait for some snow to fall in the fashion only an English person can!
