Although the foundation of a Play It Again production is generally based on a custom live performance on a real drum kit, we occasionally use drum loops on projects, usually right along with the real drums.
Why would we do that? Even in country, the songs that lean more to the pop end of the country spectrum can employ drum loops. If our producer thinks a loop is appropriate, we will create one and mix it in.
Generally we track normally, rhythm tracks first, then add the loop later. It can be mixed in to taste.
Studio rate is $100/hour and includes engineer. But most of our clients pay a predetermined package price. Send your rough work in for a quote! firstname.lastname@example.org
