Gear and drums

Sin City Drum Studios uses the latest in technology to capture great drum tones for your recording needs.  Everything is recorded to disc via Focusrite Scarlet Preamps (18/20 and Octopre Models) and converters (sample rates can vary) onto MacBook Pro and Logic Pro X.  Files have little processing (some EQ is applied, but that is about it...unless other processing like compression is requested...) to ensure easy mixing.  The drum tones are checked using Yamaha HS8 Reference Speakers and Sony  MDR 7506 Headphones to maintain  good captured drum sounds...
