    I definitely don't want to spend $2000 on drums for an album that three people are going to buy. I'd pay 1-200 per song if the person really did a sick job and was like the Rainman of drum programming. But "good enough drums" I can do myself. It's not the mixing, really - it's the actual composition, and it's way easier for me down the road to mix/master it if it's just someone else using Superior/Slate/whatever.

    Ola's older Feared albums, iirc, are all programmed drums and they are all sorts of great because he writes great drums. And because he's some kind of music robot sent from the future to make us old guys feel bad about our recordings.

    I had you in mind when I posted this, because your shit always sounds fuckin' awesome. The drums on your friggin' bass tone test video are infinitely better than anything I come up with.

    Please finish your album so that I can buy it. Cunt.

    For some reason, I "enjoy" the arduous task of programming them myself. Take a spin through my Soundcloud page, everything but the "Laid To Rest" cover was programmed by me. If ya digs, we can work something out ($200 a track sounds pretty crazy to me and for 8 tunes, I'd be more interested in a pedal or two kickin' around you may not be using anymore).

    All I was saying was that your max $2k budget seems really high for drum programming. For recorded live session drums, $2k is on the low side, but very doable.

    I'm actually just stoked anyone still gives a shit after hearing that first tune, to be honest.
