Hi Gould, welcome to the forum. Hope you stick around rather than posting a video & running ;)

I like your style. A few minor timing issues towards the latter portion of the video, but a great tune. Thought your drum sound overall was very flat & muffled, especially the snare. I think opening that sound up a bit & dropping the drums down in the mix will help the song.

Hope you don't mind the comments - you did ask :)

Sure I don't mind, thanks for the comment. I agree the snare was over muffled, I will make it better next time :)

Yea, the snare doesn't sound too good, but your cymbals sound great. Nice vid.

Nice drumming. I thought the snare sounded fine. I've got mine tuned a little higher, but I thought your snare sound fit the music just fine. Good job.

Very nice playing. You do have the control. very good job.


I wouldnt worry much about the snare sound, in the real recording situation I would leave it to the drum technician and the recording engineer, I know they usually do much better job.

"Our drum sound much better in records because we have good mixing engineers and drum technicians- Charley Watts."

Great performance.

Can you briefly explain your cam setup (is it just 4 HD webcams)?

I agree with the comments that request that you open up the sound a bit more, especially on the snare, but overall it's wonderful.
