"I sent my tracks to GoranGrooves one evening, and had tracks to review the following morning. I was amazed at the quick turnaround time. To my surprise, Goran was incredibly accessible. Each question I sent via email received a response within 2 minutes. The recording quality...Top Notch. The price...fabulous. I can't wait to get my next tune sent to Goran Grooves. This is the EASIEST and HIGHEST QUALITY drum part I have ever had on my recordings. Thank you VERY much, GoranGrooves!"


Mat Getsy



"Totally amazed at the professionalism and the speed of completion. Sound quality was stellar. Our project was not laid out with an online drummer in mind but Goran pulled it together and turned our first project song into a keeper. Goran is our new 'go to' drummer. Just wished I wouldn't have procrastinated so Thanks."


Mike Davidson


"Goran turned out to be the best decision I ever made for my CD.

Not only is he an exceptional drummer, he is a great engineer, studio musician and a really great person to work with. Very easy going and professional at the same time. If you want quality drums at an affordable price for your recording, you have to go with GoranGrooves. You will not regret it! Thank you Goran. I look forward to making more great music with you."


Tini Grey



"My project was facing the prospect of artificial drums (not a good thing for a slightly folky pop song…) when i stumbled upon Goran's site. Two days later i had real, human drums tracks in my Pro Tools session, recorded half way around the world away. Goran's feel and performance is second to none, but he also makes excellent use of the internet to get this done easily and quickly. Highly recommended, especially if you are on the move."


Martin MacDonald

Guaranteed to produce outstanding results and significantly save you time during the mixing stage of your project. Goran is not only a pro drummer, but an accomplished audio engineer. He will bring the best our of the raw drum recording for fully produced drum sound.


You will be provided with individually processed drum tracks in 32-bit or 24-bit, which you can just drop into your project for amazing-sounding results right away. You will still have the flexibility of adjusting individual components of the kit.

Individual drum samples of the session


Producers' delight: More control during production with individual drum sounds.


Individual drum samples – Going one step further to allow for more flexibility during the production process, having individual sounds of the kit. This is useful for replacing an occasional sound in the drum recording.

    Before you order

    What you need to provide

    What you need to provide:


    1. A stereo audio track of your music without drums (mp3, WAV or AIFF- it can include percussion)
    2. Drum chart/ lead sheet or similar outlining the form of the song and the length of sections - optional, but recommended{yootooltip title=[Info2] width=[250] mode=[cursor]} Regardless or how simple a song may be, every song has a form that a recording musician needs to follow. If you want to have more control over what gets recorded, a chart or a guide sheet is a way to go. You can specify anything you would like to hear the drummer play.{/yootooltip} Example 1 Example 2 Example 3
    3. Any additional instructions you would like the drummer to follow during the recording session{yootooltip title=[ Note] width=[250] mode=[cursor]} Whatever specific parts you would like the drummer to perform, you must indicate prior to recording. Deciding on different drum parts and sounds after the recording has been done and requesting a new recording be made will constitute a brand new session and will be charged accordingly. To avoid this, your own drum chart/guide sheet is highly recommended and/or Interactive Virtual Online Session.{/yootooltip}
