Recording drums for a new album

I was asked to put drums down on 4 tracks for a new album by an artist, who I can't name just yet.

So far they have been happy with the recordings, with just 1 more track to finish.

I have been recording the sessions, so hopefully soon, I will edit a mini documentary which I will put on Youtube.

I used my Liberty drums, with mesh heads, and Roland triggers, plugged into a Roland TD30 brain. 

Each drum/cymbal has its own channel is then fed into my Scarlett 18i20 which in turn goes into my Apple Mac

I am currently trialling a new software, PreSonus, Studio 1

So far I have been very impressed with the Studio 1 software and found it a lot easier than ProTools, but with the same results.

As for the recordings, they have come out much better than I hoped. Soon I will set the kit up with real cymbals and Code drum heads and see what sound I get with the real sound of drums.

Also, if anyone needs drums on your tracks, I"m your guy!
