Recordings and mixes from La Foret with Paul Jupe for Audio Sparx US

La Foret Studio based in South West France

Drum Session's, Recording, Mixing and Editing

Proudly Powered by Magix


Primarily set up as my drum recording studio La Foret Studio is a professional facility based in the beautiful countryside of South West France.

I have recorded on, mixed and produced tracks for artists all around the world including the US, UK, Greece. Estonia, Brazil, Sweden, Israel and Australia as well as working on film music for Audio Sparx in the US with Grammy nominated producer Rick Hale and guitarist/songwriter Paul Jupe.

1 - Online Drum recording for your ptoject - up to 32 tracks of drums simultaneously. Once recorded and approved the tracks will be sent to you via FTP as Wave files to, line up and mix on your own DAW Workstation.

The drum files will be sent fully edited, dry with no plugins or effects but will have a minimal pass EQ so they are ready to use as soon as they arrive. Then it's up to you what you add and how you tweak them.

Recording @ - 16, 24 and 32 bit (float) 44.1KHz and 48KHz

My set up will allow you to choose from a wide array of drum sounds, snares, kick drums and cymbal applications that will suite most styles of popular music and composition.

2 - Editing, mixing and production - I'm always happy to talk to an artist about their project and ideas. There are so many people out there offering services but its what we can bring to the table before talking about money that counts.

Recording Rooms and Drums

  • Room 1 - 18ft x 13 ft - Main Control Room

  • Room 2 - 36ft x 20ft - Live room, tiled floor with movable control paneling. Room can be sized down as needed

As a client you would just need to send me an mp3 timed to a click and BPM (the beats per minute) of that track.

I also value your input and ideas so we can set up meetings on Skype to talk about the track, your ideas and sounds before we start work. This makes the project more personal and will get the best out of the sessions.

Drums including -
Kicks - 20 and 22 with multiple mics set up, Sub Kick etc.
Toms - 8, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 16
Snares - 14x6, 14x5, 13x3, 10x5 (various shells and brands)
Various head configurations, coated clear etc
Cymbals - All Sabian with various rides, Hi Hats and effects
Microphones - CAD, AKG, EV etc - Close, Room, Overheads, Sub Kick and many configurations to suit your needs.

I can also bring into a session anything else you would require from a drum set but this may cost a little extra so please think about it. Samples of snare and kick can also be supplied if required or simply use your own

Drum Track Rates - starting at 150 euros per track with two free changes during recording, for example snare drum choice.

Please contact me for complete rates, payment and time scale. I know its important to get your project ready to go as soon as possible so the more information you give the better.
