“Since We’ve Been Together” – Soul Song Drums

“Since We’ve Been Together” is a pack of soul song drums consisting of 12 arrangement sections running to 3 minutes, 48 seconds in total audio time. It is played at 102bpm and is recorded on 13 channels (plus extra percussion tracks).

The Arrangement

The original influence for this pack of soul song drums has quite a strange arrangement of sections. It feels like a while before you arrive at a chorus. However there are all the components here that are needed to work to your own song or arrangement.

Or picking a verse/chorus combination and looping them could work well for writing something new.

A (Tiny) Bit of History

Willie Mitchell, a record producer (and vice-president of Hi Records) worked from Royal Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. During the 70’s “Papa Willie” guided many artists (most notably Al Green) through the label’s most successful period.

His approach to drum recording is one much discussed in drummer/engineer circles. Some talk about the punchy kick, the muffled toms, or the mic placement that takes in the whole kit as a single instrument. But then there’s the snare sound. Oh THAT snare sound…
