Austin Mo – The River (Drum Cover) by request

As requested in what I only assume is a marketing ploy by Steven Micheal Martin:

I listened through a few times, then tracked it a few times, promptly forgot everything, made no notes and just decided to wing it. Not too bad actually lol!

WARNING: Excessive use of arena rock epic fills!!!

I have to say, my kit sounds amazing, but I lost the ride in there, and this was my FIRST successful recording into GarageBand on my iPad as I figured out how to route the outputs into channels 1 and 2 of my Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK. Somehow the right overhead never recorded, so that’s likely why the ride cymbal is lost in the mix. All my levels were way off from my normal tracking into Logic, so I’ll have to figure out how to get everything louder coming in. Once I moved the recording back into Logic, things worked out, just took a bit of extra mixing.
