Fantastic! Really helped my understanding of Massive
Suburb series, in depth and clear also a lot of fun. Really helped my understanding of Massive, which I found daunting for so long.

Laurence is clear and concise in his explanations of Massive. He articulates the functionality of Massive so that it makes sense for anyone interested in the software. This video series is conveniently organized into small sections that describe each aspect of the software with examples of those features. This is not a course to learn about synthesis nor is it a course to teach you how to sound design with Massive. It simply taught me what all the features and parameters do and function as. And, this is exactly what I liked about this video series and is exactly what I was looking for so that I could move forward with Massive. If your a sound designer, synthesizer hobbyist, or beginner/pro musician, Massive and this video series can help you become more fluent with the software so as to be more productive. I recommend this as a must have for anyone with Massive and/or someone considering Massive.

Very thorough explanation of Massive
It really opened my eyes to the scope of this synth. My only criticism is that for me, he could set up better sounds rather than randomly setting up controls on the fly. I think that would show us more of the synth's sonic potential. It would take more time to create since he'd have to create the sounds beforehand so that he could recreate them on the video. Also for me, I'd prefer for him to slow down a bit as he shows the range of some of the controls rather than so quickly going from the one extreme on the knob to the other. But, over all, if you want to learn the features of Massive, this is for you.
