MODO Bass Explained
Short but Sweet
Eli always does a great job, I would have liked a little more detail but overall the videos explained the software pretty well.

Harrison Mixbus 5 Explained
Helpful for someone completely new.
I found the video to be extremely helpful. I am new to the Mixbus applicaton and also music recording/mixing. The production quality was good, and having the application introduced throught the steps of a project was both educational with regards to the program itself, but also (for a newbie like myself) some of the thought processes of someone familiar with the mixing process.

Logic Pro X Drummer Explained
Very helpful! Easy to use. Thorough.
I used Logic to put out an album in 2011, but I have been away from music for the past few years because I was busy with other projects (I got absorbed with genealogy). Now it's time to get back to music. But, LogicProX has so many new (and useful) features that I didn't know where to begin to catch up with the new interface and new features. Groove3 fits that bill perfectly. Thanks, Groove3! You have made it easy for me to get back on track (no pun intended!).

EZdrummer 2 Advanced
Good overview of the features
This is exactly what it says. It is a tutorial (detailed demo) of all the EZD 2 features. If you are looking for a good introduction and the capabilties of the software it is good. If you are expecting a course with exercises that will get you writing drum tracks look elsewhere.

Synthesizer Terminology Explained
Very good but simple and easy to understand tutorial!
Very good but simple and easy to understand tutorial on the basics of Sythesizer Terminology, and exactly what I needed to help me understand Synthesizers before I delve into more involved and complex tutorials and synths. Thanks for the clear explanations and examples. Coming from outside of the synth world, this was a very helpful introduction to what can be an overwhelming subject. Great job!

Studio One Know-How: Voiceovers
Simple and clear
Marcus is always clear and thorough. This is an excellent starting point for narrators who try to do their own editing in Studio One.
Audio book narration is becoming a booming industry and this should be a must watch video for those home narrators who do not hire out post production.

Top Down Mixing Explained
What a time saver !
Wow this is probably worth my 1 year groove subscription by itself.
Really well done, you get a sense of sitting with the production of the track seeing all the little tips, and some tricks.

I can see this saving me hours or months of wasted time .

Love the Guys voice, lovely pace, cut where you don't really need to see things so your not sat around looking at growing grass.

Excellent, I think I could say this is a perfect Groove production. Wow

Well planned course.

Studio One 4 Explained
Marcus does a great job explaining the basic feature of Studio One 4.0
This Video series has helped me to locate where features and functions are located in Studio One Pro 4.0 and how to use them . After using Cakewalk's Sonar DAW for about 15 years this tutorial has been great and is helping me save lots of time instead of looking the information up in a manual. Nice job Marcus!

Mastering in the Box Explained
Truly about the best I’ve looked at on Mastering
I really enjoyed the examples not only showing how and what needed addressing but also why. Then a solution not only how and why but also options for what could be done. A truly excellent explanation albeit having been done some time ago. Loved it.

Mixing with Neutron 3
Excellent. In depth.
Plenty of real world mixing examples to help demonstrate what is for most people a very subtle art. New features explained well, without all the iZotope company hype. Includes some really good workflow strategies that aren't necessarily part of Neutron but work even better with Neutron's in built inter plugin communication. I learned a lot from this course, and will be watching it again.

First Song with Studio One
Genial ! Merci ! Thank you for this complete example
I looked at a lot of tutorials that present the content in a theoretical way (how does a plugin work, how to manage a particular parameter,...).

But training that takes a concrete example is rare. This is normal because the work to be produced is more important than the "simple" technical demos.

Even if you don't like the style, the work process that is presented is clear and concise. It allows you to quickly understand the order and sequence you can work with.

I think I would come back to these videos several times.

Thank you. Thank you so much !

u-he Diva Explained
Good info being handed out
I learned things i didn't know about the synth

Presonus ATOM Explained
Good
If you spend enough time, you'll learn everything this course has to offer on ****.

However, this course is well structured, there are no downtime, so it will be much more efficient than YT.

Biggest weakness: the author doesn't know how to film the ATOM itself, which is greatly overexposed, making it almost impossible to see the colors of the pads.

Session Strings Pro 2 Explained
Very informative!
A very clear and comprehensive tutorial. I've had this instrument for a year and now I realise I haven't even used half of its potential. Thanks, Eli!

Studio One Automation Explained
Expands understanding of Studio One
Viewed right after Studio One 4 Explained. Automation is a crucial factor in DTM operation. From this course, as I now have a thorough understanding of it, I am sure that my ideas will be reflected more effectively in my music creation. Everything was explained on Studio One 3.5.2 and Mac OS, and although I am a Studio One 4.5, Windows10 user, all information was valid.

MASSIVE X Tips & Tricks
Good tips
As he says in the intro video, you do need to know a bit about basic synthesis. That said, for anyone who has used the original Massive or any synth, you'll find lots of tips to get you started with the very impressive Massive X synth.

Satified with Groove3. For people whose nativelanguage is not english, the instructor should speak oxford language with reduced speed. Better was to offer the tutorials in different languages. I have alrerady recommended that earlier.

Sibelius 2019 Explained
Very comprehensive
Although fast paced such that you may need to rewind and hear things again, it is a very comprehensive look at Sibelius. I consider myself an advanced Sibelius user but this video showed me a few tricks I didn't know. One minor complaint is the way he entered dynamics. When typing p, m or f, it should be done so while pressing the ctrl (or cmd on mac) key in order to get a proper font.

Mixing in Reel Time
All-Encompassing Mixing Course
This course by Kenny Gioia is truly top-notch. I never knew there was so much to be learned about mixing. Even though my genre is different than the Pop song he mixed in the course, there are plenty of techniques I can use in my own music.

Don't hesitate to check this course out. You'll need years to learn the craft; luckily, Kenny will be right by your side to guide you along your way.

Output Portal Explained
Helpful start to a tricky effect
Eli Krantzberg always does a great job with all of his tutorials, including this one. I think Portal is unusually challenging because it's so different from the effects we normally use. It seems like Portal can produce really unique and musical effects but getting there takes more effort than say, a regular delay or distortion effect.
One comment on Groove3 videos in general. The "Explained" videos are a great starting point but ideally they'll be paired with a follow-up series. How about starting an "Applied" series to go along with your "Explained" videos? So "Explained" introduces the basic idea of each product, then "Applied" shows you how the product might be used in various situations? You basically already do this with some products but I'd like to see a lot more follow-up video series paired with "Explained" videos.

Bitwig Studio Explained
Adequate, but could be revised/updated
As far as it goes, this was quite useful ...
... but an early version of Bitwig ...
... with some bugs perhaps ...
... but the tutor could have been a lot more knowledgeable about, and familiar with, the DAW ...
... and could have been a lot more prepared, with more carefully thought-out examples and demo's ...
... and less fumbling through repetitive bits ...
... all-in-all this had the flavour of a "First Look" or "Initial Impressions", rather than a more considered "Tutorial".
With the quality and authority of a number of your other guides from which I have learned a lot , this was a disappointing watch.
I would be very interested in a Bitwig 3 ("Update"?) Explained, produced with a bit more thought, preparation and care to stand alongside your better productions
