Bring On The Drums

Getting great drum sounds is more than just "getting a great drum sound". It's about getting a sound that is right for the song. Context is EVERYTHING! Our specialty at Ultimate Studios, Inc is getting each and every artist the perfect sounding drums for their songs.

Drums are a complex instrument to record well and capturing great sounding drum tracks is a combination of recording techniques and performance.

Besides being an accomplished drummer himself, engineer Charlie Waymire is extremely adept at working with drummers to get the best possible performance. This is one of the many reasons that Ultimate Studios, Inc has become a home for drummers to record their drum tracks.


Charlie took on the daunting task of building his own drum friendly recording studio where he could create the drum sounds he had always envisioned.

With a fantastic sounding live room, and the venerable Trident 88 console at the helm, Ultimate Studios, Inc has quickly become the “go to” hub for drummers of all styles including Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Ray Luzier (Korn), Josh Freese (Perfect Circle), Benny Rogers II (Mariah Carey), J.R. Robinson (Michael Jackson), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper), Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Oscar Seaton (Lionel Ritchie), Steven Wolf (Alicia Keys), Ken Schalk (Sensory Deception), and many others.

The live room is a spacious 600sq ft and can be completely customized to each and every project, making the room extremely versatile.

I have been scouring the web for samples and user feedback on the new Trident 88. I read Barry Rudolfs early review of the desk. I am still curious to learn and hear more for users. I am guessing you have now had the console for almost a year and curious if you have had any troubles.

Hi Charlie,

Absolutely love your content and approach.
Was curious which DAW you are using.

Thank you,

– Daniel

Hey Daniel,

Logic Pro and ProTools but Logic is my main DAW.
