Eyal Levi (Audiohammer Studios) announces free “Advanced Drum Production” creativeLIVE course


Eyal Levi, critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, producer and engineer at the famous Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Fla., will hold a free, three-day creativeLIVE course “Advanced Drum Production” from January 16 – January 18, 2014. In this online class, free to watch live, Levi will demonstrate the real-world production techniques he uses every day at Audiohammer Studios – on albums for bands like The Black Dahlia Murder, August Burns Red, Chelsea Grin, and Whitechapel. The event will cover everything from micing drums, to using Toontrack Superior Drummer to editing and mixing. There will also be special guest appearances and more.

As a part of the Audiohammer family, Levi has worked with such acts as Job for a Cowboy, August Burns Red, Six Feet Under, Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Deicide, Death Angel, I Killed The Prom Queen, The Contortionist, Motionless In White, Arsis, Demon Hunter, Firewind, Charred Walls of the Damned and, most recently, The Black Dahlia Murder, Battlecross, DevilDriver and Reflections. Levi’s latest project, Reflections’ Exi(s)t, released earlier this week.


Aside from his work behind the glass, Levi has toured the world and released three studio albums with Dååth, while also releasing an instrumental guitar album with Emil Werstler on Magna Carta called Avalanche of Worms.


Born in Atlanta, Ga. into a musical family, Levi was already playing violin and piano by the age of three, and composed his first symphonic work when he was just 17. In 1999 he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass., before leaving to return to Atlanta in 2001 where he founded his own recording studio.


In 2010, Levi moved to Orlando, Fla. where he joined forces with Jason Suecof (Trivium, Chimaira) and Mark Lewis (Deicide, DevilDriver) at Audiohammer Studios. There he helped to both expand and enrich their facilities by adding a magnificent drum room, two new control rooms and sleeping quarters for the bands.
