Misha Mansoor of Periphery Is Back to Show You More Drum Programing Chicanery

Let’s say, hypothetically, that you checked out Misha Mansoor’s last Drum Programming tutorial but you found it too basic. You’re no god of the e-drums (although, pro-tip, if someone asks you if you’re an e-drum god you say “yes”), but you’re no slouch either. You’re ready to kick it up a notch.


Well fret not. I mean, why would you fret unless you’re on a guitar? What you need are some advanced techniques for your advanced lifestyle. So check out part 2 of the series. And if you still need more knowledge just call the man directly at 1-800-Misha-4-U and he’ll hook you up with a one-on-one lesson. I promise.

Chris Alfano has written about music and toured in bands since print magazines and mp3.com were popular. Once in high-school he hacked a friend's QBasic stick figure fighting game to add a chiptune metal soundtrack. Random attractive people still give him high-fives about that.

  • AKA “how to sound like a computer with no passion in order to appeal to a mass audience that can’t handle real, raw metal with drumming straight from the heart to the kit”…fuck everything this guy is about, way to make hundreds of bands all sound the same, you suck and so does your band. Periphery – one of many shitty, trigger happy MD pop metal bands that will never be asked to play the greatest metal festival in existence, Maryland Deathfest. You lose at metal.

    • Not a big fan of Periphery, but you’re a goon man. This guy gets paid to make music and perform live. He has one of the best drummers in the game in his band. He has thousands of fans. You’re just another negative keyboard bully who probably had a bad day.

      TL;DR: Chill.

      • That guy isn’t even a drummer, he’s a really bad guitarist that has made his career out of cheesy, generic riffs that appeal to a 15 minute generation. He is really part of a movement that destroys everything good about Metal.

        • I was referring to Halpern. Who is a drummer. A good one.

    • Ease up, Cuntie. Your tampon string is showing.

    • Wasn’t even a good troll, felt like you passionless and attempting to appeal to too large of an audience. Next time come straight from the heart, or you’ll never be asked to write for the greatest troll site in existence, Metalsucks.
