Beware: sight-reading tab needed!

Unless you know how to sight-read the tab, the video with the play along without the guitar is very hard to follow…
you can fix it if you have cd or mp3 in another device to follow the part you need to learn.
Instead, the part with the guitar is without tab…it makes no sense

Real sound design course !!!

If you search the internet looking for a synth sound design tutorial you'll probably find millions of videos . Where groove 3 really stands out ? Because this videos are true !!! 99% of the time alleged sound designers put hidden plugins on their master channel without telling you and it appears that their sound are always astonishing and if you try to replicate them by following any step , your sound never sounds like their sound . Never . In this tutorial if you follow each step you get the exact same sound of the menthor !!! So you can really check if you're doing well or not . Absolutely watch this tutorial with confidence !!!

Not what I expected

According to the title after watching this tutorials I should know everything about how to mix synths.... But this tutorials lack of precision and extremely important details . More than half of the procedures explained can cause phase issues to the sound . Not a word about that . The procedures itself are pretty basic for example : too many highs ? put a low pass filter . Even my dog knows about that . I expected some insider secret , pro tip etc etc
Even the sounds used for demonstration purposes, are sounds out of the world in regard of a real music production . I don't know maybe I had too many expectations , or maybe not . But if I Had to recommend someone this video I would be in serious difficulty . Look elsewhere is my recommendation !

Orchestral Library Toolbox

Good overall, but difficult to follow in places.

This was a good course overall, but difficult to follow in places. Several times the narrator is referring to a particular progression on the score, but the hands in the video are playing different notes or chords.

Chapter 2.3.4 was particularly difficult to follow. It was very difficult in many places to see what the hands were playing and many times they were not playing what is written on the score. Also, exercise 15 was omitted from this chapter for some reason?


I did learn a lot from the course, but it could have been better if more time was spent explaining a bit more about the music itself and making the examples clearer and easier to understand.

I still have problems with groove3 and Safari. My place in the course was not always remembered and I have to change the settings like volume and auto play every time I come back to the course after leaving off for the day.

Top Down Mixing Explained
Top Down Mixing Explained

Now I get Top-Down!

I've tried to use Top-Down before but it failed to gel with me. However I've been having real problems with bottom-up that I never (in 3 years) finish a mix quickly, or to my liking. ADHD... By the end it's a muddy mess. Eli's explanation made sense and the Top-Down process makes things sound good immediately which stops me over-tweaking from the bottom. Key insights were subtle adds and adding the early reverb in the flow. Also to take more time to polish in track production before importing to mix. Bring it in with a solid sound and dynamics and work from there. Frankly this course could be a game changer for me. thanks!!

Somewhat useful

I was able to understand how to navigate around the Plug In but not to really get an in-depth understanding of how to use it. I felt at several points the course needed to provide more explanation as to what was actually happening to the audio. The walk-through of the various options available from the plug-in's drop down menus didn't always illuminate me sufficiently as I want to not necessarily use the list of presets / gestures provided, but make my own . Like another reviewer I turned to Plugin Boutique and was able to find a Stutter Edit 2 course there with a lot more depth to it.

The Ultimate Gypsy Jazz/Swing Guitar Lesson - Vol. 2

Paul carries on the Django Reinhardt gypsy tradition.

Paul carries on the Django Reinhardt gypsy tradition, by showing us how to play this wonderful music, and make sense of the strange guitar voicing sounds that we hear and struggle to understand.

This video outlines the rhythmic foundations, and how the lead melody line choices actually correlate with the interesting chord sequences.

There are many useful hand articulations shown, and melodic lines that would fit across several genres.

The section where Paul’s bandmate, Evan Price, speaks to the difficulty of learning this music on guitar (being a studied violinist), is an encouraging highlight.

Open your ears, and get this music under your belt. You will grow as a musician.

Highly recommend video series by Paul Mehling.

I have been watching all the Cubase Tutorials on here for years, Gary has always done a great job but it's been years since there was a full refresh, just little updates along the way and this is the refresh I was waiting for.

It's perfect for somebody just getting into Cubase, not too complicated or intimidating, just concise and basic inner workings of the program.

I do reccomend watching the 12 update video and 11 update video to see some of the other cool features, supervision, raiser and squasher, fx modulator, spectralayers as an ara plugin. There is so much more that cubase can do. And they are done by Gary as well.

But this video serves as a great starting point, and I'm recommending it to all my friends who wanna learn how to use the program quickly.

Excellent stuff

I'm a huge fan of Larry Holcombe's video series. I did his Mixing with Ozone 10 Explained, which is a VERY different course from this. That one is more of a traditional mixing course, taking a single track all the way through to the pre-mastering stage. This one is more like a Tips and Tricks series on using Ozone 11 within the mixing context. I'm glad he decided on taking a different approach because it may otherwise have felt a little repetitive. An interesting range of music snippets is used too. I enjoyed the regular change in styles.

KONTAKT 7 Explained

A good flyover.

The course was a good flyover.

I think some of it might need updating because I don’t see the same things in my menus. The options in my options window are different to the ones shown in the course and some aren’t there at all.

Some stuff is skipped over too quickly, like number of voices etc. There’s a mention that you can change the number, which is quite obvious, but no examples or suggestions of why/when you might want to do that.

I didn’t get the section on sample purging. If you can just purge all samples and then press play to load only the ones that are needed, what’s the point of resetting markers and updating the sample pool?

The undo button was mentioned, but no examples of its use were given, nor was there any mention of where to find it once its enabled.

I gave 2.5 stars for ease of use because I have to continually adjust the playback and volume settings in Safari each time I come back to the course. That issue has been ongoing for a very long time now.

Mastering with Ozone 11 Explained
Mastering with Ozone 11 Explained

Excellent!

As ever, great stuff from Larry Holcombe. I'm annoyed at Izotope for releasing Ozone 11 soon after I'd invested in 10 and I'm a little puzzled about how some of the newer modules differ from each other - Clarity and Stabilizer seem pretty similar to me...

I've no idea if Larry reads the reviews, but what I found great about this series is how, compared with the Mastering with Ozone 10 series, he adopted a more nuanced approach for the genres. (In passing, I'd highly recommend that other series to people who watch this one because Larry goes into much more detail about mastering in general there, and it's very useful and interesting stuff).

The one thing which was a big shame in this series is the absence of the Larry Holcombe Summary, or LHS. He didn't do his normal LHS at the end of each video. It's really helpful to have him briefly summarize the process he's followed, particularly when the videos are nearly 20 minutes long; so that was definitely an absence that I noticed.

Oh, just in case you do read these reviews, Larry, the following is a true story. Earlier today, I was sitting in a restaurant called Baker and Spice in Hangzhou, China, and I heard your track 'Sunshine' being played through the speakers. Your music has truly gone global :-)

Helpful

Simple but very helpful alternate picking exercises. He doesn't mention it, but the exercises he gives covers string crossing with a downstroke on each string, and then 3 note patters which alternate with a downstroke on a string, then an upstroke on the next string. It's a useful video if you do the exercises and try to keep your r/h balanced and relaxed

Essential Fundamentals of Electric Guitar

Every electric guitar player needs to view and study this video!
Let's just see, if you can play these essential guitar licks live, with this much feel and intensity. It is humbling.
Electric guitarist, Dave Briggs, teaches the roots of all American influenced, British guitar music.
Our guitar heroes ( Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, etc.) grew up listening to this music, then took it to the next level. These are the absolute fundamentals of great electric guitar playing.
And the live sound of Dave's band, really gets so in the pocket sometimes, that you can tell they have played dance halls for years.
Learn these licks, and you’ll understand where your guitar heroes came from.
Highly recommended!!!

Great Jazz Transition Lesson!

This has been the lesson I was waiting for loaded with great cord substitutions, progressions, and lead ideas to help transition from blues to a more sophisticated jazz style. You're off and playing jazz in the first few minutes of the first lesson! Great Job!

Melodyne 5 Explained
Melodyne 5 Explained

A must watch for Melodyne newbies

Melodyne is an amazing product for editing vocals. Much easier and more extensive than doing it in Pro Tools BUT... Melodyne is not the most intuitive program out there. I found the app pretty frustrating when trying to figure it out on my own. Then I found this video and the world of Melodyne opened up completely. It still take some getting used to but now I know how to get what I want. Plus Eli is a great teacher! Next up: Tips and Tricks.

I own Melodyne Studio using Pro Tools 2019.6 on a 2012 Mac Pro so not ARA

I rated the Value at 3.5 only because i have collected 52 of G3's videos over the years and for as great as this one is, there are others that aren't quite as informative. Eli is bank though.

Arranging Rhythm Section Parts Explained
Arranging Rhythm Section Parts Explained

Great focus on musical devices

While most videos on this platform deal with technical issues such as how to operate a specific plugin, this video series shifts the focus to offer useful and easy to understand guidance on how to arrange your music from the outset, so there are less problem areas left when coming to the mixing stage.
The target group are probably what I would call intermediate producers - this moves at a pleasant speed and doesn't get too caught up in the details, but you need to have a certain experience already to catch it all as it goes by. For more advanced producers, there probably isn't too much new stuff in here, but this is not meant as a criticism - it just means that the series focuses on the essentials, which I think is a good thing for most viewers.

Great content. Not great apps.

I'm subscribing because the content is great. The apple tv app wouldn't let me sign in. The Roku app won't let me save some favorites and is lacking a lot of common features like "continue." The browser is the best place to access. As I said, the content is great. There's a good combination of new content and old.
