Susan I have never been better in my entire life and this is I mean I don't know I just woke up today and was the best day of my life some how thin I knew you were going to say that well, welcome glad to have you back and excited to have andrew in the house today absolutely. So I've known andrew for maybe five years or something now for five years ah he plays bass in one of my favorite bands winds of plague also runs a studio and in southern california called sound temple and uh you know so he's kind of seen things from both sides of the both sides of the control room you know, as a guy in a band playing shows all over the world recording with cem great producers and recording othe...

r people's music his own music. So I think that you know he brings perspective to the table that the really can it covers on the basis and he's ah smart guy with a lot to say so I'm very happy to have him on board here sweet well if you're just joining us if you have never been to critical eye before um this is our audio channel and we are the school of rock here at creative I've and we have talked about how important in previous workshops in the audio channel we talked about how important based production is to the overall mix and how you really can't find this kind of information anywhere else in of course yeah I mean you know you look up you know you I'm guessing that probably a fair amount of people watching this are guitarists uh and or even if you're not you know you don't know what I'm talking about you look up on youtube you know, guitar tone tutorials never talk about base but you know if you've if you've ever struggled to replicate the sound on a record that you like or you know followed you know one of those guitar tone tutorials and wonder why it doesn't sound as good as the records he like ah likely answer for that is base you know this is it's kind of it's it's at least fifty percent of what you think of as guitar tone but nobody ever really tells you that and you know you look up based home tutorials on youtube sure a couple of them but it is one of those things that like it's kind of sad that people don't care about it as much as they should because it's really important and really it's it's hard to find good information on you can find a zillion tutorials and, you know, foreign posts and stuff on guitar tone kind of hard to find good ones on base, so I am confident that this will literally be the best place in the world to learn how to record awesome base. Well, I'm glad to hear that well for everyone, I just want to let you know this is our pre show, so we are just chit chatting and checking, making sure everything is running smoothly have a lot of audio, uh, things going on today, so we want to make sure audio is all tuned up and ready to go, so we do have about five more minutes before we get this party started, so why don't we introduce you to our in studio audience?
