    So... I need a drum editor to finish an album. Long story short: it's taken 4 months and 4 editors to come up with 2 completely edited songs. It's ridiculous and I'm beyond frustrated. First guy got busy with other projects; 2nd guy did sloppy work and I didn't use him again; 3rd guy was just okay but took over a month on a single song; and 4th guy started a song and never got back to me. So I have 2 out of 8 songs completed over the course of 4 months. This is such a simple project, but I can't get anyone to stick through it. Here's what I need:

    I have 6 songs that need drums quantized and edited to be tighter. The drums were rushed during production and there's a bit of sloppiness here and there. Mostly, though, it just needs snapped to the grid for tightness and some fills/blastbeats/doublekicks corrected, while also maintaining phase coherence across mics (absolutely vital, as the band is going for a more natural, acoustic drum sound rather than sample-driven sounds).

    Stylistically, the songs are melodic death metal. There are some tempo and time signature changes throughout each song, but nothing too crazy. A few blast beats and double kick sections here and there, but it's pretty conservative.

    I need these edited quickly, cleanly and properly by Jan 15th. That's about 3 weeks to edit 6 songs. Each song has around 20 drum trucks (see list below).

    If you're interested and serious, please PM your price quote for all 6 songs. Sorry, but no more per-song editors. My back's against a wall with a deadline and I need someone who will actually complete the project this time, so I will pay 50% after 3 songs are finished and the other 50% when the final 3 are finished. This way I get someone professional who sticks with the project until completion, and I also get to weed out the guys who just do a song and move on. It sucks, but like I said, I'm on a deadline now and just need results.

    Oops, sorry, the 5 was a typo. I just corrected it. It's 6 songs that need edited.
