Excellent tutorial course for first time users
I have never used a DAW before so I needed a tutorial which would take me through the Studio One system step by step showing me how to use everything. This tutorial is absolutely perfect as it assumes zero knowledge and explains how to set up the system and then how to record, edit, mix etc. in a very clear way. I am using version 3 of Studio One, and I originally looked at the v 3 Explained course but found it was not so much of a step by step user guide - it looks fine once you understand the basics of home recording. The v 2 Explained course is fine for understanding the basics of v3 as the fundamental principles are the same. I would recomment the v2 Explained course as a perfect start point for novice users.

The Awesomeness of Studio One 2 and Groove 3
Studio One is going to soon be known as the industry standard if it isn't already and Groove 3 is at this time, in my opinion, the go-to site for all educational material concerning the home recordingrevolution. Since my purchase of of Studio One 2 Explained my understanding of the software and it's abilities is 10-fold what it was. Looking forward to the Advance version.

Tutorials Don't Get Any Better Than This!
This tutorial was beyond excellent. It should be the model for all tutorials on Groove 3. Bill Edstrom is passionate about what he does and it shows. He explained everything in a logical easy to understand manner. Even the most novice would be able to understand this. I had great difficulty understanding the Studio One 3 explained tutorial (which was of almost no value to me), but this one was so well done that it saved me. Thank you so much Bill Edstrom. Please keep your tutorials coming!
