Well hey everybody! Welcome to CreativeLive here on the Music and Audio Channel. I'm your host Drew Konzelman and today's course is Studio Pass with Periphery. He wave Matt Halper in here and Nolly from the band Periphery. We're super, super excited to have these guys in the studio. We're shooting on location and we're going to be talking about a whole bunch of different stuff. I want to start off with my question. What is the big picture? What are we going to come away with, this course from?
I think really the big picture we're going to try and emphasize is the importance of source tones and just how with a certain set of skills you can walk into an unfamiliar situation and consistently get a really good result. Really you're going to focus on getting--
The drums, particularly.
Fantastic. And that's where we're starting, right? Is with drums. Alright, well take it away guys.
We hope you're doing well. Thank you Dr...
ew. It's good to see you again. It's good to be back here.
This is kind of cool. It's a much different situation than last time I was here with CreativeLive. It was in a different kind of studio. This is really on-location. We have full drumset behind us. We have a full set-up here, so it's pretty cool. So as Drew mentioned, we are going to be really focused on drums throughout this whole segment and the end result is going to be that we're going to track drums for the song "Alpha," which is off of our new albums Juggernaut Alpha, Juggernaut Omega. It comes off of the first one, Alpha. We're going to be tracking that song, playing the drums, getting really good tones, Nolly's going to focus on tuning. We're going to talk about the actual drum selection, the cymbals that we're using, kind of the approach, a lot of things. And throughout this process we're also really down to take questions as we go so if there's things that you want to ask that are pertinent to what we're discussing please feel free to send in a question and we will get to them as soon as we can.
I'd actually really like that, I think if it's a little bit interactive that's good. We want to cover stuff that you guys really want to know.
Yeah, for sure.
