Lior Ron has made a career out of composing and recording music for films, TV commercials, video games, and other media. Because he’s often working with deadlines (and sometimes very tight deadlines), he has become an enthusiastic user of DrumTracks.com to help him create a professional product on demand.
“Many times I have to meet deadlines and work around budgets that I’m given as a producer/composer,” he says. “They don’t just want to get music, they want
sounds. They want a finished product that sounds good.”

The stress can really pile up when time is tight; and time is tight very frequently, as he is routinely given only 24 hours to finish a project. “It’s not enough time to book a studio with a technician, set up a drum session with a live drummer and be back to export everything and do my mixing at my studio before I send it off,” he explains. But DrumTracks.com allows Ron to get a quick start on his recordings. “I can usually have my edited and exported drum track within three hours of getting a tight deadline with DrumTracks.com. That’s a huge plus, not having to deal with going out and getting drummers into the studio. It just makes the process much easier.”
Ron’s career in music didn’t start in the recording studio. He started playing trumpet when he was six years old as an after school activity, and eventually went to tour the world with classical orchestras. He followed that up with freelance trumpet gigs on high-profile TV shows and as a session player. But his real aspirations were to become a composer and a producer, so he spent three years practicing and developing his skills in the recording studio, getting familiar with the software and hardware. Once he felt comfortable with what he felt was his sound, he was confident enough to start taking work as a producer.
“When I felt like I was ready, I took a big leap, packed everything up and moved to Los Angeles,” he says. “It’s a tough industry, but if you believe in what you do and you have patience, you’re gonna make it. I’m still moving up and getting better and better gigs.” Ron now spends all of his time composing music, producing other artists and remixing projects. DrumTracks.com is a regular part of his work.
“Having the tracks on the website categorized by BPM is amazing,” he says. “Many times I’ll get the BPM from the client, so I just go online and punch it in and I can immediately check out two, three, four, sometimes more tracks.” Ron often takes the drum beats and cuts them up according to the form of his project, sometimes even mixing and matching multiple drum tracks for the same song. “That’s very useful. I find that DrumTracks.com definitely gives you a very, very convenient and super-professional solution for a task that would otherwise be probably three times more difficult and would take up three times more time if you were to do it old school. Plus it’s much more affordable.”
