Intro To Music Publishing: A Creative and Business Perspective For Musicians
Informative, Quirky, Dated 2018, Ending Presents Questions With No Answers
The questions at the end of each segment, where answers are not provided, are mostly why only I've given 2 stars. If it doesn't provide certification, then I can't reasonably be expected to do homework.

Solid information foundation presented by personalities that are eccentric, which gives an "At the Movies" meets "Wanye's World" vibe; information is also a bit dated as it's mentioned that it was made in 2018.

Also focuses, for the greater part, on United States laws and treaties.

Band-in-a-Box: Getting Started
Well presented and comprehensive BIAB introduction
I am only about 1/3 of the way through this video course, but so far I am learning a lot. BIAB is presented well here, and is clear and easy to follow. The only slight issue I have is the keyboard shortcuts are for a Mac (I am on Windows) and in most cases I can't get it to work by changing from Ctrl to cmd or Alt. No matter, the course is still very good. Highly recommended if you are new to BIAB.

Logic Pro: Songwriting Workflow Tips
Wow!! Fantastic
First I would like to say that Groove3 is my favorite tutorial place. Second I want to mention that Eli Krantzberg is my absolute favorite tutor. Third I want to say that this is the best single Logic that I have ever listened to. I learned more useful stuff in this video than I ever have before. I thought I was an advanced Logic user, but I bow to the Master. Thank you, Eli.
It is worth the price of the All-Access Pass just for this video. There was not a wasted chapter in this. I will watch this one several times.
Outstanding.

Creating Epic Cinematic Compositions
Excellent!!
Gary does a great job of explaining the techniques and the why(s) of cinematic compositions. I would suggest downloading the project file and following along with the video by adding your own vsts in your own DAW. I learned a lot about my own VST instruments and how they work in a cinematic composition.

Great job in explaining the details of the Mimic Sampler.

Mono-Compatible Width Explained
A brilliant companion piece to Dynamic Loudness Explained
Lots of insights here for producing and mixing music, all the more so if completed together with Dynamic Loudness Explained. Larry's DAW of choice is Logic but the DAW is largely irrelevant for both courses as the teaching points are all for general application.

Reason Explained
A lot of great tips!
I have been using Reason12 for about 5 months now and this video series has taught me so much, highly recommend watching regardless of the level of experience in Reason.

Dynamic Loudness Explained
Really interesting global perspectives on mixing here
I found there to be lots of insights here on gaining headroom for a louder track without compromising the sound of your track - shaving transients musically, having your Limiter react to peaks while still bringing up the RMS yet keeping it at a safe distance from the Limiter's ceiling, considering mono compatibility in the bass frequencies particularly (with a helpful warning for those of us who like using Retro Synth!). I've done loads of Larry's courses, and this was like a consolidated review of all of them because the general principles given in this course are the same ones he implements in all his mixing and mastering courses. This course brings it all together in one concentrated package.

The Ultimate Practice Guide for Vocalists
Not what I expected but good
I really enjoyed watching this. The training is for someone who already has a foundation in vocal training, which I don't, but I still enjoyed it. The instructor was fun to follow along with. I will re-watch this for sure trying to unpack the short condense nuggets provided. I wish they would make a course for beginners that is more in depth instead of touching on a few principles.

KISS: Guitar Play-Along
Upside Down???
Why on Earth is this shot upside down? I was going to buy it for the fun of it being a huge KISS fan but no clue why the perspective is that of the player's view.

All-Access Pass
Yearly Subscription is an Excellent Value
Groove3 has an abundance of material from excellent authors. Being able to access this material without limitation for 1 year is an excellent value. My only issue is slow loading of course material. Overall, keep up the good work.

Music Theory Explained
From Introductory To Expert Too Quickly
A great brief on general music theory.

I have been dabbling in music for around 20+ years., and picked up some music theory along the way. I understood about 75% of this tutorial, and I feel it quickly jumps from beginner to expert.

This is definatly something I'll have to watch and study a few times.

I was hoping to learn more about ornaments, however, they are only briefly touched on here and there.

Dynamic Loudness Explained
Really good!
As always a pleasure to follow one of Larry's courses and what a gem this is. I never knew how the pro guys made their tracks so loud without completely destroying them, but now I feel I'm a lot closer to get my pop tracks up to par. I make a lot folk, jazz and instrumental music without the need for loud mixes and masters, but still feel I can use the concepts discussed for clarity and space in those tracks as well. This is quite an advanced course with a lot of difficult subjects and a few times the pace is a little high, so easy to use I don't find it hence the 3 stars, but it's well explained for most stretches, so not that hard to follow and with a rewatch in future more details will stick. Some of the plugins used are rather expensive, but besides a clipper which I don't have, I'm sure I can use some I already own or at least find cheaper alternatives. All in all a really good and helpful course. Thanks Larry.

Neutron 4 Explained
Clear and Punchy!
Great videos - clearly communicated and efficient and quick but with all the detail. Learnt loads. Concerned my computer will crash if i put an instance of N4 on every track for the tonal balance controlling, but i guess the idea is you export all tracks with the automation and effects etc and then bring the stems in to a clean project?

Thanks.... great stuff.

Top Down Mixing Explained
Great stuff!
It's great to see a mixing course that actually encourages and advocates ignoring the microscopic detail. It gets tedious fast EQ-ing and compressing every element in a mix, so this top-down approach is a refreshing and welcome new perspective on mixing - for me, at least. The only thing is, the track used to exemplify this approach feels a bit like a cheat. The 'raw' audio isn't really raw. It's all clearly been through some high-quality compression and EQ, so are we really seeing pure top-down mixing, or is it more like the bottom-up mixing has already been done in preparation for the tutorial, with the stems bounced down, and then the top-down mixing is in fact a final polish? Either way, the principle is worth being aware of and I really liked the video series. A good length, engagingly delivered, and thought-provoking.

Producing House with Native Instruments
Another Masterclass!
This is probably about the 5th of Tom's tutorials I've gone through from beginning to end. Using his regular clear, lucid style, he takes you through a house production from start to finish. You learn production techniques, but also theory and composition, as well as how to use particular plugins more thoroughly.

The NI tool he uses for vox is Glaze, which sadly is not part of Komplete 13U. I wanted to follow along exactly so I bought it (luckily I had a coupon and saved 1/2!). I think this will be a worthwhile addition to my toolbox so am not unhappy about that, but don't get confused if you don't see it in Kontakt.

Overall an amazing experience, I eagerly await his next course offering!

All-Access Pass
I ashamed I don't utilize this more often
I received my first year of Groove3 All Access Pass for free as part of an iZoptope product promotion, and I loved what it had to offer. But, I am very ashamed of myself ???????? for not even using it for nearly 80% of the subscription period. Months went by and I never logged in. When I realized what I was missing, I signed up for another year (with an early bird discount). I love the video series, books, and tutorials. I haven't discovered yet if the Groove3 Pass has any mobile options. I am always blown away by the sheer volume of titles. It makes me look like a weenie compared to others here, with respect to audio and music knowledge. At times I feel like I need some schooling to understand what they're saying. I am going to endeavor to take deliberate advantage of my All Access Pass and really learn how to use all the audio software and plugins I spent my money on. Thanks. ????????

Pro Tools Explained
Eli at his best but I missed his "God Bless!"
Eli never disappoints and he's a master at anticipating what students require. He has helped me so much here in Groove 3. This course is A+ standard and typical of his sincerity as a teacher. (It's a pity Groove 3 provide no dates on the videos and I often have to use the reviews to see how old a series is which isn't ideal or fair in my opinion - some of which are simply so out of date, and therefore an audit is required by the editors - however all of Eli's are current and relevant).

I've been putting off using PT for years purely because I felt intimidated by using "The Industry Standard" and I believed it would be too difficult. However Eil took me through it bit by bit. In other courses, I would play through each video but here I found myself having to stop during the video to try replicate what he was demonstrating. PT is not for the faint hearted but this course really takes you through from the start to get you up and running as he promised. Eli also used music which was relevant and supported his teaching. He even brought in a live guitarist for the course which says a lot about Eli's professionalism and dedication. (Some other Groove3 authors are using music that is simply paltry and totally unsuitable for demonstration purposes - perhaps for copyright reasons but that's still no excuse - however this problem does not apply here with Eli - I believe the editors should listen to the supporting music before they sign off on the series and see if it's helpful or even related).

I only have one recommendation on this which is the Automation section where I felt it could have done with an extra video (at least) as it was the only one that went over my head and I will need to explore further. I know this isn't an in-depth look but Automation is often the reason folk switch to PT. Also this course could not be understood by total beginners but PT is not really a beginner's DAW and Eli had no option in my opinion but to deliver the course on the understanding that the student understood at least DAW terminology and basic processes. Would have loved a tutorial on using Video but that's just me.

This course is worth the money. Had I gotten the Automation better grasped I'd have given him 5 stars but 4.5 from me (as Mr McLoughlin will tell you) is very good. Finally I missed Eli's familiar "God Bless" at the end! Eli Krantzberg is a gift to music, period.

Getting Your Song Ready to Mix
Basic
A decent brief of information as described in the title.

Delivered as a monotonous new caster type intonation; which is trained to not sound subjective.

Also a bit of a slow pace in voicing at first, sort of like Ben Stein, then ends a bit faster and finally with some character in closing that the whole tutorial will have benefited from in the first place.

Jimi Hendrix Smash Hits: Guitar Play-Along
Did you forget the tabs?
Ok, the videos are high quality, the sound is excellent and the instructor is a monster player. What's the problem? I'm glad you ask, there's no tablature in the play along videos, only in the backing track with the guitar removed. That's a terrible flaw, not many people can follow the song just watching the instructor's hand, and those who can are most likely professional players. I don't know how they decided to work like this but it sucks big time for the learner.

iZotope RX Tips & Tricks
A Breif On Controls, Demonstrations and Practical Techniques And Logic, And A Experiment
I appreciated the practical examples and extended logic for some of my questionable order of operations flow.

The execution was a bit too serious and feels like a lecture, however, the material delivered make up for it.

Some things I found a bit distracting were often referring to RX as iZoptope and using "but" instead of "although" (tho) or "however".

No tutorial on Groove3 for RX seem to brief on "select similar"

A good and oftentimes intuitive series but the video game music removed what could have been a very professional course. In my opinion, tutors should be wary of using their own music for demonstration purposes as they don't always mix (pun intended).

iZotope Neutron 3 Explained
A Brief Of Controls
A brief of Neutron 3's controls, feels a bit redundant as Mixing with Neutron 3 kinda covered the same stuff.

When Larry mentions RMS in a compressor and it creating "aliasing", nothing more is mentioned other than it does. Is there a another Groove3 tutorial that covers this in detail?

Fabfilter Saturn 2 Explained
It has a lot of positives (being up to date was the main one).
I watched this to see if the plugin would be useful to me. However I found that Larry was playing it too much by ear for my likes and using too much of his own music that simply provided zero help in the application of the plugin. Quite the contrary. There were two times when I had to remove my cans to save my ears. Because he's done good other videos before I gave it a generous 3.5 stars but in the end I decided not to buy the plugin.

Not too much going on in Insight 2 to explore, however, this video covers the basics well.

Related to pink noise, I recently switched to brown noise; as I have been led to believe it's more perceptually flat.

Developing Your Tonal Ear Explained
Love Doug's Ear Training series
This course is certainly on the simple side but I still found it valuable as a review and also as a way of consolidating my understanding of using solfege as part of ear training. It was particularly helpful in that regard when the discussion turned to using solfege in the minor scale. Doug's ear training materials are fantastic.

Navigating Chord Progressions
Not bad
This is not bad, but nor is it great. The instructor certainly has a lovely manner about him, which helps, but it all feels a little too impressionistic. There's not enough pedagogical support provided, and that which is provided - in particular some of the visuals - are even a little confusing. As a learner, I felt that we rely too much on listening to him talk over the piano, and at times the piano-playing feels almost a little self-indulgent. I appreciated the review of what we had learned that some of the videos had at the end but, as said before, more scaffolding is needed for the learner.

Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition Explained
Kranzberg Rules
I have at least a dozen tutorials done by Eli Kranzberg for Groove 3. He is thorough and knows his stuff inside out. The problem is, he moves just a little too fast for me. But he has helped me get past some hurdles that I just couldn't find help with, especially in the case of Hollywood Orch Opus Ed. Every other tutorial I've seen has the program up and running from the outset. Eli even goes to assist with how to download. This may seem obvious to the rest of you, but it wasn't for me. It's too bad there couldn't be different versions of these videos. I should be advanced after all these years, but my use has been intermittent and now I'm old and can't remember a lot of what I had worked out before because I haven't used it. Anyway, Eli helped me see how to get into the Orchestrator and the possibilities. I'm overwhelmed, but feeling a lot better about it!

Ear Training Explained - Triads
Great course
I really enjoyed this course. I love that Doug provides different timbres to get your ears attuned to different contexts and there are enough drills to get the sounds in your head. It is quite repetitive, so it certainly isn't a course to do in just a few sittings - but with regular breaks, it's fun and effective. Where is Doug from? The way he pronounces 'root' is really idiosyncratic to my ears. And that word 'root' gets said a lot!

Ear Training Explained - Intervals
Great course
I like that Doug focuses on both ascending and descending intervals. Often, interval training focuses exclusively on recognizing intervals when ascending - yet in any real context it's of course not enough to feel confident only of these. As with the 'Triads' course, it gets repetitive, so regular breaks are needed to get the most out of it. It's good fun if you can fit in an hour a day or every other day. I feel that Groove3 needs more ear training offerings. I mean, intervals and triads are great and all but these courses are nearly ten years old and nothing more advanced has been added since then. Training on chord extensions, altered chords, more elaborate chord progressions, or perhaps even sight singing would be really useful too.

Lonnie Mack - Acoustic Blues Guitar

Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition Explained
A Must Have
I would not have purchased Hollywood Orchestra with OPUS and Arranger without this tutorial!
This class grapples with a very sophisticated new VI play engine called OPUS. It also has an AI Arranger that instantly turns a simple piano chord changes into professional sounding arrangement. Eli is able to masterfully "translate" the manual and point to creative and practical ways to employ this tool to my compositions: This tutorial is presented in a clear thinking way that makes you want to create music.
Eli delivers professionally with deep understanding of us his students.
