Mixing Synths Explained
Extremely Helpful
I was always wondering, why are there so loss "Synth Mixing" courses available. Synths are the main element of electronic music. Great course with understandable explaination of the effects and mixing thechniques. A must for Synth lovers.

100 Rock Lessons
Great lick, very good musical examples.
Excellent material, well structured. Not for the beginner guitarist though.

All-Access Pass
Very useful
I've been able to find videos for just about every plugin I own. Very helpful to have real tutorials and insight from pros, instead of perusing youtube. All the videos are concise and broken up in sections.
A+!

Ableton Live 11: Making a Song
Concise and productive intro to new Live 11 features
A nice project for a Saturday... not too long, and with an emphasis on some of Ableton's new devices and features in Live 11.0 (don't try on Live 11.1b4 since the Tree Tone device is broken).

Generally the video is excellent and well-edited. Even more "zoom in" for the settings would be appreciated though (in some parts it was great).

MASSIVE Explained
Exellent!!!
This toutorial was exellent. Very helpful. Good Job

Studio One 5 Explained
Extremely helpful learning!
I love this! Very helpful teaching the ins and outs of Studio One - once you get into Studio One 5 and learn its magic, you will not come out until your song is mastered. I am rather new with Studio One, these videos smoothly explained a lot more. Thank you.

Jimmy Bruno - Inside Outside Jazz Guitar
A Rare Gem has finally landed
This is really a rare gem. I studied under Jimmy Bruno many years ago and for some unknown reason he would refer to his No Nonsense Jazz Guitar DVD but he hardly ever referred to Inside Outside Jazz Guitar. Finally I have had the pleasure to view this course and I highly recommend it. Forget all the theory and use your ears. Some note and are INSIDE and others are OUTSIDE and JAZZ demands that you use both.

Mixing with FabFilter Plug-Ins

Thanks Larry, now i knew what the step process in terms of mixing. This very helpful for every beginner out there.

Mixing Heavy Rock / Metal
Fantastic expertise and mixing philosophy!
Fantastic expertise and I really like the philosophy of relatively quick mixing and not getting lost in the weeds. Thanks Kenny! I'd like to hear more of your philosophy on how to ride the faders...ie....are you watching the waveforms or mostly listening? Fascinating. Thanks again!

Well put together
I thoroughly enjoyed this mixing course and definitely feel that I benefitted from the material. It is put together in a logical sequence and even if you don't have exactly the same plugins you can still apply the principles and end up with a great sounding mix. I would definitely recommend this course.

UVI Falcon 2 Explained
Step by step
I was having trouble with Falcon when I first got it. I was dragging, pulling and screaming and getting nothing done. I downloaded UVI Falcon 2 Explained and I was already making my own patches by 5 videos. I can also recommend Strike and Transfuser Videos. They are a fast track to successful programming and a faster way to get your own sounds.

iZotope Music Production Suite: Remixing a Stereo Mix
Excellent overview of how to use a few of iZotope modules
I like the approach and the focus on a few key points in a limited time. I would have seen in that subject the use of Tonal Balance to show the analysis of initial mix, evolution and final comparizon between "before" and "after"

Ableton Live 10 Explained
Excellent!
Lots of good information on using the DAW and getting the most out of every feature - very helpful!

iZotope Stutter Edit 2 Explained
Altogether worth watching, it will get you through the basics of Stutter Edit 2.
Overall I learned mostly everything I was hoping to.

Unfortunately, I had a bit of trouble understanding Gary's accent which is no fault of his own, I just couldn't for the life of me understand a few things he was saying, which made it hard to get the full concept of a few topics.

I would definitely say it's a good tutorial, but could have had a little more detail on some specifics as well.

So far, this was my least favorite of the 7 iZotope tutorials I've watched on Groove 3.

I would love to see Eli or Laurence take a shot at doing a Follow Up Stutter Edit 2 Video, like I've seen them do in the past on some different tutorials. I found them to have an easier teaching style to follow and understand. I would love to see what they could add using their own examples.

I do appreciate Gary's effort, he definitely understands how to use Stutter Edit, but his teaching methods could use a more streamlined flow, there was a good amount of jumping back and forth that left me confused. My hand written notes ended up all over the place.

MixBox Explained
Tremendous teacher and tutorial!
Eli never disappoints...I've been using Mixbox for several months and it is a favorite, mind blowing value for the money. AND Eli makes this plug in look brand new to me, so many great illustrations of what this plug in is capable of...Thanks Eli and Groove3. Might I add a suggestion - I would like the narration a bit lower relative to the music files, as I like to hear the subtleties of the audio engineering, and cranked up some. The narration is a bit loud in a few of the vids at Groove3. Hope this suggestion is helpful...Thanks again for amazing tutorials.

Compressors Explained
Wow, finally compression demystified!
Most helpful study of compression, how to use it and how to hear it, I have ever studied. Great histories and priceless to watch this expert tweak the knobs. I discovered I was being a bit too subtle and missing out on some compression magic. Finally, the conceptrs of attack and release really understood and felt. Super practical. Great tips for using compressors that do not take so much tweaking also. Tremendous teaching! Wish I would have seen this decades ago....Thanks a ton for sharing this expertise and wisdom!

Logic Pro: Preparing to Mix Explained
So far so good
Logic newby and have worked my way through the first four videos. Really informative and good visual examples of what it should look like when a change is made successfully. Could move a little slower in where to click to find functions; pretty common in all types of documentation when the demonstrated knows the process exceptionally well. In all very useful, well done course. Likely to buy other courses done by the same instructor.

Managing Gain & Distortion
Could have been a little better
He explained everything way too fast, if the lectures were stretched to atleast half an hour, it would have been amazing.

Songwriting Theory Explained
Eli Never Disappoints
This is not an advanced theory course, but some practical ideas. Just what is needed if you happen to be a working songwriter. There are a lot of basics that most musicians know and don't need repeating, but a lot of simple solid ideas for helping with writer's block, which happens to everyone. I always learn something here. Worth the time.

Waves StudioRack Explained
Nice overview of the Studio Rack
The presentation opens a lot of ideas on how to utilize Studio Rack, although it is centered around Pro Tools and my Logic Daw U.I. does not display Studio Rack in the same way - so I will have to "Translate" the visual representations. (The only reason for one less star.)

SynthMaster Explained
I learned a lot ..
Discovered that the built in compressor can take audio input for sidechaining, very cool .. finally learned how to use the modulators properly and how to use SynthMaster for FX only. Love this synth but its always been a bit complex to use, this tutorial simplified a lot of things.

SampleTank 4 Explained
Incredibly Thorough Intro!
A very thorough look at ST4 and what can be done with this very powerful instrument!

If updating this course at any point:
- could use some more depth at how to build your own sample-libraries and further depths at customization - specifically, how can one develop your own multi-element instruments (certain drum kits have several elements - the one you imported in the last video has a single element - would be helpful to know if you could turn the different samples into different elements)

That said, still TONS of value to watch for here! Excellent!

iZotope VocalSynth 2 Explained
Overall it was a very worth while tutorial for Vocal Synth 2
I learned a lot, and really enjoyed Sami's drum use example.

I do wish there was a little more detail on a few things, but regardless it was very worth watching.

Thank you Sami.

Working with T-RackS 5
Good Overview - NOT a Mastering Tutorial
If you are looking for a video on the ins and outs of mastering, don't look at this. There are some very helpful tips, but it's not meant to be a mastering tutorial.

If you are after an overview on the features and helpful aspects of T-Racks, this is excellent!

Bitwig Studio 4 Explained

Soundtoys Plug-Ins: Getting Creative
Great stuff from Larry once again
Larry delivers another great course. The Soundtoys collection is fabulous and Larry shows succinctly how they can be used to great effect. Having now done a number of Larry's videos, I do chuckle when he asks you to close your eyes and REALLY focus when A/Bing: I must confess that I can't always hear the difference. One thing which I found frustrating, and this has nothing to do with Larry, is the fact that Groove3, unlike some other platforms, doesn't provide a channel for asking questions. In this series in particular, I noticed Larry regularly using quite a lot of Dry signal on a send and return aux, even on the final plug-in in the aux chain. It would be great to be able to ask why such decisions are made. Anyway, enough of the tangent. Thanks once again, Larry. You helped me get to grips with Logic itself and its suite of stock plug-ins, and now you're helping me as I venture out into the financial abyss of 3rd party ones.

SoundToys Effects Explained
Excellent stuff
This was my introduction to SoundToys and I'm so glad it was. Very simple and clear explanations. No waffle. Enjoyable and helpful illustrations. At under two hours, it also feels like just about the right length too. Thanks so much, Scott!

Soundtoys 5 Update Explained
Excellent again
A great introduction to Soundtoys updates. I watched it pretty much immediately after watching Scott's other excellent series introducing the Soundtoys plug-ins. When I saw the running time of around 45 minutes, it motivated me all the more. This feels like the 'bonus' track. If anything, I think this second series could have been a little longer as there is definitely more to be said. Still, a very helpful review of updates to the plug-in suite.

EDM Digital Mixing with Analog Results
Intermediate Stuff here (not at all for beginners)
The course was good but the only problem I found with the course was the material used for demonstration, I have been following this guy since a year or two, he knows the stuff. Things that were explained, were explained perfectly but it lacked in the content.
You cannot learn complete mixing only by watching this course.

Ableton Live 10: Tips & Tricks
It's fine if you're totally new to this and want random information on how Live works
Possibly worthwhile if you're new to Live and have a Groove3 sub. It's a randomly ordered list of very short videos, and like most of Multiplier's videos on here, more than half the "techniques" being demonstrated are just facts about the interface that you'd know if you'd skimmed the manual, poked around Live for a while, or even just had experience in other DAWs. If I'd come across them on social media, I'd call them decent tidbits on the Ableton way of working and thinking, which definitely has *some* value - but not something that should cost money to watch.

Very simple - but clearly informative. Pictures and sounds TOGETHER are the jam, so to speak. You've heard it all, you've seen the notation, you've probably watched the videos too. This gives you a PICTURE of what to strike and when (while you're listening). Songwriter not a drummer - want to be able to clarify what I hear in my head when collaborating with drummers (and other musicians).
