STRAYLIGHT Explained
STRAYLIGHT Explained

Very well delivered

An excellent introduction to the 'light' series of instruments in the NI range. It's good to watch this in conjunction with the Ashlight series, as the interface is identical but the instructors draw your attention to different things.

If I were only going to watch one series, however, it would be this one - it's more engagingly delivered and showcases the power of the plug-in much more obviously.

Sound Design with Ableton Live Roar Distortion
Sound Design with Ableton Live Roar Distortion

Amazing stuff !

Before watching this video I strongly recommend to watch a distortion tutorial on groove 3 just to undertand how things work . Sometimes I struggle trying to emulate some extremely subtle details heard on platinum records . Well after watching this tutorial the path has become extremely more clear . I had no idea distortion could be used like this , in a subtle but extremely musical and useful way . Obviously this tutorial is pointed toward ableton's roar plugins but by watching this with a wide open mind you can really exploit the most out of it . Really well done Mr. Cochran !!!

Joe Pass - Solo Jazz Guitar (Hot Licks)
Joe Pass - Solo Jazz Guitar (Hot Licks)

A classic is back for another generation

I see Joe Pass everywhere on YouTube. Rick Beato and a number of others are analyzing his style and you see people offering transcriptions of Joes's performances nearly as often as video lessons. I was into Joe when I was a guitar student in in the early '80s. Even attended on seminar with him. His style is so rich, but it is also very practical and this training you hear straight from the master how to simply and recombine elements and ideas to broaden your own vocabulary.

Cubase 13 Mixing Explained
Cubase 13 Mixing Explained

Extremely Helpful

This is an extremely helpful course for someone like myself switching from another DAW to Cubase. The basic work flow and track routing was my personal biggest barrier to entry when learning Cubase.
This particular course is absolutely fantastic at keeping things simple, concise, and easy to follow. Whilst also being comprehensive enough to give you the confidence to be up and running with your own session very quickly. Cannot recommend it enough for anyone in a similar situation to myself - mixing for years already on various other DAWs, but finding Cubase's way of doing things unintuitive at first. This gives just the right amount of information to get you going without being overwhelming. A hard balance to strike. It's obvious there are other ways to approach everything in this course, but if like me, you just want to get up and running? You can't go wrong with this!!
Thanks!

Very helpful

A very helpful overview of the new features in 10.8. It didn't sound like much preparation had gone into getting genuinely usable results with Beat Breaker, but that doesn't really matter too much, I guess, in an overview series. Definitely recommended viewing for anyone yet to update to 10.8 - lots of cool new features in the update. If you've jumped from 10.7.9 or lower straight to 11, you still need to watch this series; otherwise, you might be missing out on some gems of plug-ins.

Since beginning the 30-day free trial I have watched around eight hours of video. Programs I have owned for a year or more are now even more central to my creative process. I despise having to go to YouTube for educational purposes. The likelihood of learning anything is always very low in such cases.

Logic Pro 11 Update Explained
Logic Pro 11 Update Explained

Fantastic Tutorial

Eli, always a pleasure to learn from you, loved the video on the 'Hybrid Workflow' genius. The new internal MIDI is brilliant, but I do have a question regarding this.

Are there some settings under the hood that need to be tweaked? I gave it whirl with Omnsiphere and Kontakt triggering a piano. I've put a simple chord progression on the Omni/ Kontakt track, selected the instrument input on my piano track. I can get the chord sequence to play, but, for example, it doesn't carry the arpeggiator movement on to the piano track. The only way I can get that to work is if I put a MIDI effect on the Omni/ Kontakt track.

Do you have any thoughts on this?
Regards

Multiplier is a real teacher , in the purest meaning of the word. Someone which puts his experience at your own service ! I said experience instead of knowledge for a reason : knowledge is objective , experience is subjective . The way he explains reflect his full experience so he doesn't waste your time saying something you can learn anywhere else . And the most important thing he doesn't take anything for granted . He explains how things work , you just don't see a bunch of knobs and fader movements here . By watching this video you don't become the coolest serum's sound designer in the world , but you gain all the knowledge needed for the purpose . The it's up to you exploit it or not . That's exactly what I'm looking for and what I like in a tutorial !

Exceptional look by EK at equally-exceptional Logic update

Eli, I always love your videos and this is no exception. It further cements some consistent themes.

The quality is high, the language is easy to grasp, and even if the concepts may not be entirely digestible at first, e.g. one of my only complaints being that, having no musical training, I found the deeper music concepts a bit vague and confusing, eventually things make sense either in the same course or upon repeat viewings, and/or you decide if it's worth learning more about or not.

All that said, ultimately there is little you see or hear that isn't the crux of what the subject matter is about. And it's all easily understood for the most part.

Thank you for all you have done and please continue to create such high-quality content.

Bandlab Cakewalk: Getting Started
Bandlab Cakewalk: Getting Started

Necessary for Newbies

Exactly what I needed to use Cakewalk successfully. I had stumbled around to make a MIDI recording from my Yamaha but without understanding. Cakewalk documentation is close to brain dead, amounting to little more than recitiation of button and menu names without context. Online tutorials mostly do the same. The Groove series shows how and why you would use the bewildering array of features to accomplish small goals. It's just enough detail to get you working productively, not comprehensive or overwhelming. After the Groove tutorials I am now capable of understanding the many YouTubes and other resources online. CONs: The Aussie accent of the presenter can be a challenge for Americans. Captioning would be very useful. The presenter uses too many pronouns and indexicals (click "here" & "there," do "this"& "that." We need nouns. The video moves too fast for pronouns). You'll also have to pause enlarge your screen image by 5x from time to time to see the microscopic controls being used. Other than that, the tutorial is near-perfection for learning the basics.

Very good tutorial on Ableton Live 12

I feel like I know everything I need to know about Ableton for my purposes now, although people who are just starting out should definitely watch at least twice, and also watch as many other tutorials as they can, here on Groove 3. By now, I'm quite comfortable with the various software, synthesizers etc, but it takes time.

It would be quite helpful if all the instructors on Groove 3 actually zoomed in wherever they are doing something, because it does get tedious to keep scanning the screen for the mouse pointer. That's my only complaint.

Wonderful instruction, Eli is always perfectly well prepared, as are all the instructors here on Groove 3, I can understand that if this is your first tutorial series and you have never seen an envelope or any other aspect of music software before in your life, it can get a bit overwhelming, but other than that, it was neither too long, nore too short. Just perfect. I do have a few questions leftover, but hey, the Native Instruments user manuals are spectacular.

I found this tutorial really well thought . I already knew perhaps 95% of this stuff but it took me years to build an arsenal of tricks to make music productions interesting . I wish I would have seen this tutorials when I was a novice at producing music . Just use three hours of your time watching this tutorial and then at least other three hours by trying the procedures you learn here to master everything . This is like a modern producer's swiss army knife of tricks . It covers pratically everything you'll ever need to keep your music interesting and give character to your sounds .

This tutorial is outstanding !!! You learn probably everything you can do with a vocal track . Many times we listen how amazingly vocals sound on platinum records .

Just try everything you watch here in your music production and smile . But be aware of one thing : everything you see here works on perfectly recorded vocals and perfectly sung vocals .

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!!

A must watch!

Learning PT Control on your own is hard and confusing. I thought at first that this app was unlogical, overdesigned and a pretty much useless add-on to PT showing your metering and transport. Couldn’t be farther from the truth. Definitely watch this course. Come back from time to time, make notes and you’ll discover workflow ideas that improve your efficiency for sure. I even think this course should be included with the app. It’s the manual we never had.

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.

Well-prepared and delivered with confidence

It's clear to see that Gary knows his subject, but I was more impressed with how well he prepared his videos. There is no stumbling about for a sound or mis-steps in his delivery. A thoroughly professional job, well done.

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.

Why are you buying 3rd party versions of these great instruments.

Eli Krantzberg has long been my favorite instructor in all of Groove3. I have been a full time subscriber for several years and continue to get value from this site. It might be just the way I learned music, but I sometimes wonder why I have spent money on things that Logic Pro has already given me. I guess I needed Eli to tell me what I had skipped. Thanks Eli and thanks Groove3.

I'm switching from another DAW and on some level I was "afraid" of Cubase due to its complexity and all that. However, Gary made it all look fun and easy to follow. I can't wait to dive in and continue composing but now in Cubase 13. Thank you!
