- Voxengo Drum Service ($15 dollars until March 6th, 2010 - usually $70.00)
Some folks use electronic drums because that's the sound they want, others use them because they don't have a real drummer. If you fall in that last category then this is a deal for you. Voxengo is offering a deal until March 6th, where they will lay real live drum tracks to your recorded song for 15 dollars (usually $70 per song). You provide them with a mp3 or your song with your demo drums and one without, as well as a click track and they will supply you with a 96kHZ 24 bit recording of a real drum track. Go to their site to listen to demos and get specifics. Given the complexity of miking a drumset and the cost of studio time, gear and a real drummer this is a fantastic deal.
