NEW AND OLD DRUMS!

So I’ve just purchased a new drum kit that is currently on order from Steve’s. It should be coming in the next few weeks. I’ve sold my Tama kit that I bought 2/3 years ago. It was a great live kit but I felt I could only really get one sound in the studio. After doing some research I found… Read more →

NEW WEBSITE IN PROGRESS

So I’ll be creating a new website to host all my original material that I’ve created on my own and with my other bands. I will create a section for all my music that is unfinished and in need of collaboration. It’ll be there for people to scan through and to see if something stands out for them to be… Read more →

UPDATE AND KEEP LOOKING AHEAD

So it has been a strange year. I’ve been keeping myself busy with updating my studio with new equipment, mics and drum pieces. I collaborated with a few musical friends and wrote a few songs which you can hear on my bandcamp page (danlegault.bandcamp.com). I’m currently working on a new musical project idea that isn’t band related. Hope to get… Read more →

ISOLATION – NOT STUDIO TALK

Well, the world has changed now hasn’t it. Since my last post a lot has happened with me and also with the world. COVID-19. Wow. As this virus was just starting I left for my annual trip to Club Med. This time we were heading back to Mexico (Ixtapa). When we left it, the virus didn’t really spread to North… Read more →

STUDIO UPGRADE

So I currently just upgraded my studio with some incredible new preamps. I purchased the Warm Audio WA-273 which is a dual preamp that resembles the Neve 1073. I also purchased the Warm Audio WA-73EQ which is the same preamp but with an EQ. And finally I added the Warm Audio Tone Beast TB12 which is just a phenomenal preamp.… Read more →

PUNTA CANA

So I arrived in Punta Cana. Such a great experience leaving the horrible winter we’ve had. Ice. Snow. Cold. Now it’s 29 degrees celcius and I’m loving it. We had our first 2 days off which was great because we got to settle in and be ready for the first show (which is tonight). We will be doing an hour… Read more →

5 DAYS AND COUNTING

So I’m getting ready to leave for Punta Cana in 5 days. I plan on using the site to post blogs and things that I’ll be doing when I’m there. I’m going to take the three weeks of spare time to work out my future plans for the upcoming year. Right now I’m trying a new app on my phone… Read more →

2019 – A NEW BEGINNING

So 2019 is starting off well. All new beginnings personally and musically. Funktion (my cover band) has now went through some musician changes and is starting a new in January with some new songs. It will be fresh with a name change as well. Big J. We will be hitting the pubs and the corporate gigs in the summer. Looking… Read more →

NEW STUDIO SETUP

So a few months back I decided to totally dismantle my studio and give it a complete redesign. It is now set up so much better and makes things so much easier to do any sort of tracking. I removed some furniture and gave more space to the musicians for tracking purposes. I can now see them while recording and… Read more →

ONLINE DRUM TRACKS

I’ve updated my site to include a page with information on how to get me to play on your songs. Demos, albums, EPs. A good song needs some real live drums. Check out the page for more information.   Also available for mixing. Have a project and tried out a studio and aren’t happy with your mixes? Send them to… Read more →
