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.
