UVI Falcon 2 Explained
Always Useful & Valuable
Have been using Falcon for quite awhile and I always learn and enjoy Eli Krantzberg's videos on this subject, amongst others . Even reviewing the video over time is of value as Falcon is very deep. If you love sound design or just mucking about, you'll love this amazing synth and Eli's videos on the subject.

HALion 6 Know-How: Getting Started
A very helpful Quickstart
This is a quick primer on the basics of setting up and using Halion 6 for a new user of the software. It explains the functions of all Halion window panels, how to arrange them and how to set up user screen sets. It also gives a basic overview of building a sound and how the internal routing works.

McDSP 6050 Explained
Great, but not yet complete
For what it covers, this is a great course. It's a good overview of the strip itself. For the modules it covers, it really helps you understand each one.

However - be warned, it does NOT cover anything except the new saturation and gate modules included with 6050. It's unclear if you're supposed to watch another course in addition to this one, or wait for them to continue adding content to this course. Regardless, it's not a complete overview of 6050 - not by any stretch. Most modules are NOT covered in depth.

Love the presenter, very easy to understand what he's saying; it's easy to "get" it.

If you’re new to Logic, like me, this is a great overview for how to put together a song. I think the assumption is that you have some familiarity with DAWs in general though.

Harrison Mixbus 6 Explained
Excellent Course to Gain Familiarity with Harrison Mixbus 6
As a recent purchaser of Harrison Mixbus 6, my first purchase of this DAW, I began searching for a good education course. Initially I was unable to find a true course on this DAW and then during a recent search in the Groove3 library I found this new addition by Gary Hiebner. I was familiar with other courses by Gary and new immediately this would be a great course, and it is just that! All new owners/users of Mixbus 6 needs to view this course. Highly recommended!

Harrison Mixbus 6 Explained
Excellent video series!!
I am so stoked by this video series, I'm only halfway through it and I know far more about the "Harrison Mixbus 6 32C", than I was ever to figure out on my own. I purchased this series because I knew that trying to figure it out on my own would be daunting, but this video series is the very best hand-holding I have ever experienced and I know that by the end of the series, I will be an experienced expert with this software title, fantastic offering, especially for someone moving into using a brand new system and this Harrison system is powerful on steroids!!

Producing Melodic Techno: Ableton Live Beginner’s Guide
Short and Sweet
As the description says, this is good for beginners. Although I’m not a beginner, I was interested to see if I could learn some new techniques for melodic techno. After watching, I would say this is one of the better courses for learning how to get started quickly. No fillers just good content. I strongly recommend if you are just getting started. If you are not a beginner, you could definitely skip the course. Regarding the genre specific techniques, I personally don’t believe this is melodic techno... more Mainroom EDM and the stab techniques are good for that. As far as the rolling bass lines, I’d recommend watching Julien Earle, he has several techniques for getting the sound which sound much more techno to me.

Loved how she properly taught through examples singing scales and licks. I also found her instruction on proper breath support very informative as I often forget about using my entire body as an instrument and some times only focus on singing from my throat.

Very well thought out and constructed tutorial on the synthwave form. There's none of the usual "crafting the perfect kick drum" or the perfect synth lead nonsense, just total focus on creating an example synthwave track.

Learn Country Style Piano
Bob Hoban Rules!
This was not only informative for piano players, but for any one who wants to understand Country Music, it explains things in a way that clarifies some of the history of country music. I will say that some of the chords ar enot explained in a way that a beginner would understand immediately. If there was notation attached to this it would be a very valuable resource.

Harrison Mixbus 6 Explained
Excellent and very useful tutorial as always.
I love Harrison Mixbus for mixing and I always enjoy Gary's tutorials. Just one comment. Something weird seems to be going on when Gary is demonstrating the EQ section of the 32C. The bands are in fact in order from low to high, with the low band ranging from 40 Hz to 600 Hz and the low-mid from 200 Hz to 3.1kHz. And they can be boosted or attenuated by 15 db. Otherwise great work, thank you very much.

Omnisphere 2 Explained
Best tutorial out there by far!!
Searched around alot for omnipshere 2.5 courses and every one from the start for one reason or another would start off ok then do something that would leave me scrathing my head with no explanation or just do a course on 2.0 without any of the updates.

As someone who only started learning music production 6 months ago i need everything broken down step by step and this course hits that mark, even when EK had clicked something he didnt mean to he would mention this (which is one of the things i got annoyed at with a lot of courses elsewhere) when im sat here watching every cursor move.

Every little thing on omnisphere is explained with examples and straight to the point with no waffling on.

Really enjoyed doing this course, which ive learnt over the 6 months can be a rarity.

Blues Piano
Careful, step-by-step working through creating a full blues piece
What I really like about this book is that it works through ideas in a stepwise fashion that lets you work on one aspect of blues piano at a time, gradually increasing the difficulty level of balancing out rhythms and melodic fragments in the two hands. It works best if you have a computer monitor right next to your keyboard so that you can plan along with the recorded samples. Playing with the recorded audio is helpful to me for sticking to the tempo, relaxing into the groove. I only wish you could add books to your list of favorites or your history - I have to search to find this book each time I want to work on another section.

Arturia OB-Xa V Explained
Short and sweet!
Nice overview of the Ob-Xa’s basic and more advanced capabilities, following a concise Synths 101 type of introductory videos. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

I’m not going so far as marking the training down for this, but if I had one suggestion for improvement, it would be for phrases like “and stuff like this”/“and all these kind of things” to be replaced by actual terms for specific elements in the instrument.

I get that the sky is the limit in terms of sound design with an instrument like this one, and that there’s an element of just going with the flow for someone as experienced as the author when creating a sound. However, in the context of a training video, I would have found the videos *extra* helpful with maybe just a bit more structure and clarity as far as navigating between the different parts of the synth with a particular purpose in mind.

Lovely overview of the new and improved features in Neutron 3, as well as how versatile it is as a mixing tool.

Easier than full blown Music Theory
As someone who has always had a hard time grasping music theory and doesn't have the time to be constantly at music, I've gotten more out of this course than I have in trying to learn music theory in the past.
