Video: Learn How TesseracT’s Daniel Tompkins Writes and Records His Vocals


You may remember that last year Gear Gods’ very own Trey Xavier composed an instrumental metal track using Toontrack’s Superior Drummer 3 and sent it over to Trivium’s Matt Heafy to write and record vocals over. We documented Matt’s writing process on video and it was an absolute smash hit (like we didn’t see that coming, come on) so you know we just had to do it again this year. This time around we enlisted TesseracT vocalist Daniel Tompkins, sending him an instrumental metal tune to do his proverbial thang on, and boy howdy did he ever! Check it out!

You can watch the resulting video below, in which Dan explains his vocal writing and recording process in depth. Drumception 2019 is almost over, but it’s still not too late to enter! Write a song using the provided Toontrack drum track here, and submit it to win some amazing prizes from Toontrack and Orange Amps!
