Smart Loops’ new Live Studio Drums service provides professional custom-recorded drum tracks created specifically for each customer. LSD projects are delivered to customers with multitrack files (kick track, snare track, toms tracks, overheads tracks, etc.), allowing clients to mix the song any way they choose.

After loading the Live Studio Drums session into their system, clients have complete control of their LSD tracks. They can slice them up to change the arrangement of their song as needed or extract drum parts for use in other songs.

Smart Loops has created a proprietary online system to assist customers in producing their Live Studio Drums sessions. LSD clients fill out an Internet-based setup sheet to indicate musical genre and technical info for the project. Then, customers can get directly involved in producing their session by specifying desired drum sounds, selecting drum sticks or brushes to be used, establishing performance guidelines for the drummer and choosing the audio processing for their tracks. The same online system also processes the customer’s order, handles payment and uploads reference tracks with which the drummer plays.

In addition, the company owns a professional studio that has been setup specifically for recording drums. Drum kits are setup and ready to record 24 hours a day, with the drumming talent on staff at all times.

Smart Loops is offering an introductory, limited-time, all-inclusive offer of Live Studio Drums at only $49 per song. More information, along with a selection of LSD demo songs, is available by visiting
