FabFilter Timeless 3 Explained
Dissatisfied
I have always found Groove3 videos to be helpful. NOT THIS ONE! The video quality and presenter were good. The problem was the example used. This is video about delay. Don’t use an example that makes it VERY difficult to determine which is the source and which is the delay. The example vocal sounds like it’s already drenched in delay and reverb. You need an example that starts out TOTALLY DRY so that you can hear the effect Timeless has as it’s applied. Worse, the same useless example was used through the entire course making the entire course useless.

Mastering in Studio One: Beginner’s Guide

Vital Explained
Vital knowledge for what is now a vital synth in my arsenal!
Honestly I got this synth the day it came out and was super confused by it at first. Roll on months ahead and I see people are making sweet ass sounds, so I decide to give it another whirl. Well after learning pigments, serum and massive X I must say this one is definitely on par with the big boys.

Overall great tutorial from a great teacher as always!

Love you larry! Keep the quality content a rolling! Your videos are VITAL to my learning. HAHAHA sorry, that was a bad joke

A great music and recording resource
I have been a member of Groove3 for many years and it never ceases to be that tutor at my arm. Whilst simple tips can be picked up from websites, YouTube for free, Groove3 gives that bigger picture support.
The instrument tutorials are super too. Many are dated from the days of VHS but the content is still golden.
All in all, it is an excellent resource and one that I have recommended many times to others.

Scaler Explained

great set of videos for getting started with this varied program. takes a lot of getting the bes out of it, but the author covers most of the bases. Ive yet to complete the last few videos as I'm trying everything out as I go through them. great so far.

Songwriting with Band-in-a-Box
Nice Addition To The Groove3 Band-in-a-Box Video Tutorial Collection
This tutorial series is based on the 2020 BiaB for Mac program. There are some differences as how each feature is accessed .
Songwriting with Band-in-a-Box, or BiaB for short, is a welcome addition to Groove3 and Eli Krantzberg's series of BiaB tutorials.
This tutorial series demonstrates several BiaB features that user may have overlooked.
Eli explains his method of using the Melodist, Melodist Maker (which is separate and distinct from the Melodist), one of two available Audio Chord Wizards and other BiaB features to create interesting song intros, song arrangements, guitar and piano parts, solos and harmonies.
The overall goal of the tutorial appears to suggest ways the small studio producer can use BiaB to improve their productions by integrating BiaB features into their production workflow.
Learning to use some of the tools and practices in this tutorial series can elevate any audio production.

Songwriting with Band-in-a-Box
Great overview of some creative uses of Band in a Box
As a new comer to Band in a Box, I thought this series was pretty nice in laying out how to use some of b.i.a.b functionality to assist your creative process. It covered both starting with a melody and coming up with chords for it, or having chords and using b.i.a.b to help flesh out a melody to work with, along with other topics.

It´s a good way to understand about racks in Ableton. Actually, racks is how Ableton Live is defined.

MASCHINE 2 Explained
i loved this
easy to keep up with and i learned a lot of new stuff

Scaler Explained
It's thorough but often hard to sit through ...
Ultimately I was informed and felt that my time wasn't wasted but it was just short of excruciating at some points. The instructor's mouse is often jumping all about making it hard to follow along. The revisiting of material already covered, like the playback matrix, drags things out. The instructor seemed ill prepared, such as not using well thought out examples, but he does make up for it somewhat with his intimate knowledge of the product.

Logic Pro X MIDI Plug-Ins Explained
Very helpful, overall
This is another great series by Eli, on the whole. After completing it, you should feel quite confident about most of the MIDI plug-ins. If you then go on to complete courses by Larry Holcombe, who uses MIDI FX to great effect (especially a course such as Creating Generative Music or Production and Theory Hacks), you should feel very confident about how to use many of them.

However, the series does have one or two frustrating videos. ‘Envelopes and LFOs together’, for example, is mostly just Eli playing with parameters for no obvious teaching reason. I had to go elsewhere to learn more about this plug in. It’s also a shame that Scripter isn’t mentioned despite having some great possibilities, as the course Creating Generative Music illustrates. I wonder if this plug in was added after this series was published?

Still, the course is very useful and engaging overall.

Logic Pro X Drummer Explained
Great course
Engaging and very easy to follow. If you know little or nothing about Drummer, by the end of this course you should feel confident enough to say you know a lot about it. The course also includes very helpful tips on how to get the most out of Drummer in a creative context.

My only criticism is that DMD has been updated since this course came out, so perhaps this part of the course could also be updated.

If you would like to increase your knowledge of Logic’s Drummer, I can’t imagine a better way to do so than following this course.

Cubase Chord Track Explained
Excellent Lessons!!
I watched this tutorial before but watching it again really enforced the usefulness of the chord track. Only suggestion is learning how to use the chord pads with the chord track. This way you can use the midi keys or keyboard to play the pads.

Logic Pro Jump Start
Amazing For Beginners
I just upgraded my laptop and got Logic-- and as a Songwriter who's getting into production, this was invaluable to me. I'm not gonna speak on behalf of more experienced producers, but this course is basically perfect for getting a feel for, and learning workflow tips, for people absolutely new to logic. Man was just amazing at explaining everything as clearly and concisely as possible, great at showing examples and encouraging the learner to do the same, etc.

KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series Explained
On target
The presentation seems thorough and to the point yet enough time is spent on each topic to soak it all in.

The video provided a good overview of NKS so the user manual should make more sense because I now have the "end in mind" ...

Superior Drummer 3: Recreating the Legends of Drums
THE place to learn Superior Drummer 3
Luke Oswald walks the viewer through creating the sounds of some of the legendary drummers in a sneaky way to teach you how to be proficient in getting the sounds you want from SD3. One suggestion would be to include in the course materials the midi that Luke uses for each of the drummers (in addition to the before and after WAVs)

KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 Power Start
Very Helpful
The videos were good and detail really enjoy to learn more about my kontrol MK2 keyboard good information.

Studio One 5 Updates Explained

As always Eli hits the spot, how well he knows DAW'S I have several videos by him and always learning from them. This is no exception and has moved me on with Studio One 5. The additional content is a big help to follow on step by step.

FabFilter Timeless 3 Explained
Didn't enjoy at all
First, a lot of the examples had the DAW metronome going louder than the example, which made it difficult to distinguish the supposed effect.

Second, I had the feeling that there had been little or no preparation for this video and we were getting to watch the trainer explore the plugin for the first time.

Third, so many of his examples were only useful for EDM (which Larry does very well indeed) but not useful for more traditional music. This pretty much help me decide I do not need to upgrade from my Timeless 2. There certainly is value in that. As always there is something to be gained from watching a Groove3 video.

Band-in-a-Box: Getting Started
Good effort but more structure required
I'm grateful for the tutorials. However they could be better structured given the complexity and range of the program. A better appreciation of the differences between BIAB and its RealBand alternative would have helped. The BIAB program is overdue for an interface upgrade and this getting started tutorial struggles to paper over this issue.

All-Access Pass
Groove3 is a great, terrific one-stop shop that has it all...
as i get more work in audio and need to learn more different new things, I keep coming back to Groove3 to get me ready. It doesn't matter the genre. It doesn't matter the DAW. Groove3 is a great, terrific one-stop shop that has it all... sometimes it's more "overview" and sometimes a more micro, focused approach is called for - there are very specialty tuts e.g. "midi editing in DAW xyz" etc. So good, that when my brother in law got holed up recovering from surgery, I got him a all-access pass as a gift.

All-Access Pass
Excited about learning new things
The all-access pass is outstanding I bought the 1-year subscription so because there is so much content so much so many videos and training the year access pass is well worth it. The website is just outstanding and user-friendly when you can filter the content to really drill down to Pacific's of what you want to learn.
