This is a fantastic piece of work by Austin. Wow.

Unsurprisingly, I also agree with his initial words on Virgil in general. Well worth a watch:

He's so good miming along to that Benard Purdie playback he could probably do it for real now.

HAHA. I remember quite a few lunches with Mr. Purdie. We used to be booth neighbors in Frankfurt for many years, and while he's an absolute egocentric nutcase, he's also a fantastic drummer, who is - genuinely - responsible for some of my favorite drum parts, ever.

Was just checking this out in another thread:


Very cool! I was wondering, in situations like this one (where it looks like he is recording himself), does Virgil do his own drum mix? Maybe sends a stereo file to the mix engineer, or does he send out raw files?

Either way, sounds great!

He does his own drum mix these days.
Only for bigger album productions, he hires a master and mixer. I love the drum mix in this video too btw!
