* 01 : All I need is a demo of your songs (MP3 or CD).
This should consist of :
- 1 / a stereo drumless guide track ( All instruments if possible with Click at low volume and without Drums) / ( The minimum is just : Guitar & Click )
- 2 / a stereo track of the same song with a basic drum machine programmation (This is not necessary but good for me to understand your songwriting very quickly)

* 02 : After some listening sessions , I'll tell you honestly if I really like the songs and if my drumming is the most adapted to your project.
Then , I can start working for your songs with the best drumkit configuration for your project .
* 03 : We can choose different methods to record my drums :
a : Only Acoustic Drums
b : Acoustic Drums + Midi Recording ( by Triggers )
c : Electronic Drums ( Midi Recording by Pads ou Mesh heads ) + Real Cymbals = I called it : The " Hybrid " Method
The " Hybrid " Method ( Electronic Drums in MIDI + Real Cymbals with microphones ) can be the quickest method ( don't need 16 good mics , pre amps , drumheads tuning...I just focus on 5 good overheads ) ; you will be able to change the sounds of the kick , snare and toms as you want with your virtual instrument ( Steven Slate Drums, EzDrummer, Drumkit From Hell , BFD , Addictive drums...)and you will have very clean and pure cymbals sounds cause drum pads are very quiet.
