EZbass Explained
I Liked It
I saw a comment by someone that wanted a refund because it was too basic. Well, it was just the right pace for me. I have about a dozen tutorials from Groove3 by Eli Krantzberg, and he always amazes me at his understanding of music software apps. It's impossible for a presenter to answer every single question every buyer may have. That is my only disappointment in his videos. I need slow and simple when first learning a program. Some move too fast for me, but the beauty is we can re-view videos. I think I have a good basis to start working with this program now.

soothe2 Explained
Excellent overview
I actually complained about Thomas plugging Soothe2 in his Mix Bus Processing course. However, it turns out that Soothe2 really is a bit of a magical plug-in, and there isn't anything out there that can quite do the same range of things that this one does.

I'd recommend doing Oeksound's own tutorials first (available inside the plug-in) because they are very easy to follow and provide an excellent overview of the plug-in. Doing Thomas' course then becomes about consolidating what you learned there.

I think the Black Friday deal on this expensive plug-in just ended, so perhaps hold off until the next sale for those who are keen on adding it their arsenal. It goes from $199 down to a more reasonable (?) $139. Unless of course you happen to be loaded, in which case you won't care, either way.

Cheers, Thomas!

I’ve had and used EXD3 for ages, but I learnt so much more and will get much more value from the product going forward. As usual, Eli provides crystal clear explanations. Highly recommended

Music Production Theory & Arrangement Hacks
Very Helphful
Hello, "Music Production Theory & Arrangement Hacks" is a good introduction for those who sometimes lack the method to start music production. The work with "Captain plug-ins" is very well explained. This purchase was useful to me, I learned things that I did not know.

Using an Oscilloscope for Music Production Explained
As ever, great stuff from Larry Holcombe
I really enjoyed this.

Although I can't really see myself using an oscilloscope, Larry is paid to be an educator, and for educational purposes, having these visual illustrations is really helpful and unusually insightful. There are even a few 'a-ha' moments, such as the counter-intuitive idea that an Attack of 0ms can actually lead to an enhancement of transient information if using certain compressor types. The oscilloscope proves this - so you won't be doubting whether the educator is mistaken - and it's just really interesting stuff to know.

This course is snappy and to the point, so I got through it quite fast . This might be because I've watched so many of Larry's other courses, however, and many of these points have been covered elsewhere. In any case, I will definitely be giving this one a re-watch to better absorb some of the points.

Pro Tools Explained
In-depth Reintroduction to Pro Tools
I've been away from Pro Tools for a number of years but recently purchased the new MBOX Studio and decided I wanted to have a refresher course to get the most out of it. As I've done over the years with deeper software titles, I turned to Groove3 and was not disappointed.

While I enjoy most of the trainers on this site, I particularly like Eli Krantzberg who really dives deep and touches almost all of the features so you can improve your workflow and skills. I always come away from Eli's tutorials with a much better understanding of the software.

I was also pleasantly surprised at the additional "updated" videos added to the course showing off some of the new features added since the original training was launched. The use of Melodyne was a nice add.

I would like to request that Eli and Groove3 do a in-depth training series on the new MBOX Studio. I think it would help a lot of people as these units make there way out into the world.

Vienna Smart Orchestra Explained
Good Introduction
This 12-part tutorial does a good job of introducing the basic "How To's" if you are new to the Synchron Player. It's more an exploration of the interaction of the sampled instruments with the player, than an intimate look at the actual orchestral sounds, which is exactly why I purchased the tutorial. It includes plenty of ideas for using the player creatively and should be of great help if you are getting started with the Synchron universe of orchestral sounds.

FabFilter Tips & Tricks
Great way to better understand the FabFilter plug-ins
I enjoyed this course. It allowed me to review my understanding of many of the FabFilter plug-ins in a new context. It's a shame that Pro G, Pro DS, Pro R and Timeless 3 don't get a mention. Perhaps Groove3 could consider doing a part 2 for this course - or perhaps a course dedicated tosound creation using the Creative Suite and Twin 2? I think there are many FabFilter users out there who would love to see a course like that.

Anyway, enough of the tangent. Thanks, Larry for another engaging course.

Arturia V Collection: Tips & Tricks
Enjoyed this!
Great series of videos showing ways to set up and use Arturia's V Collection of synths. I was able to follow along using each plugin in this series (only Emulator II caused me problems when trying to assign specific keys on my keyboard but this was due to either the plugin itself or Studio One crashing each time - this was not the fault of Tom's brilliant tutorial however). I learned a lot from the content, thanks!

Play Piano Today! All-In-One Beginner's Pack
Great First Steps!
I am new beginner to piano, and learning. I watched a handful of video tutorial previews for many others offered here and elsewhere before purchasing. This one not only gave the best preview (here and at HL site), but it simplified the process and seemed to make it so clear! I appreciate that, and even though its obviously from older days, I like her voice, energy, and teaching style, so its timeless.

Mixing with Plugin Alliance Plugins Explained
Sorry, but it feels like I wasted my money
The track is so "lite" and airy that all the changes made to it are so subtle as to be imperceptible to anyone but the person already familiar with every slight nuance of the track.
Lost me at the point where musicmath delay calculator and elysia alpha comp were being used to allow transients through by working out the timing mathematically. That level of microscopic minutiae just doesn't come across well on a training video. Dogs might hear it, but I didn't.
The track on the whole just felt so "lite" that tweaks made to elements while the mix was playing, were just too subtle

My ears are in good shape, and I'm listening with Slate Audio VSX headphones

The guy doing the tutorial is competent enough, and does explain well, but for me, it was fundamentally, a poor track to use as a demonstration due to it sounding so "vanilla"

Max for Live: Sound Design with BEAP
One for the toolbox.
Great set of videos to grasp using Max for Live with the BEAP modules to do something useful (or for fun). Quick course and easy to follow – real discovery for me this one.

MASSIVE Sounds Vol 1
Great stuff from, I assume, Larry Holcombe?
I've done many video series with Larry and I actually thought the author for this one had been mislabeled at first. Was Larry a teenager when he filmed it? His voice was not recognizable at first. Also, I was slightly afraid for him because there were quite a few police sirens in the background, and I was worried that he might be taken away; thankfully, he wasn't and I was able to get very helpful to-the-point review on how to use Massive.

This synth was recently added to Focusrite's free-software bundle, so there may be a few people like me doing these Massive series a little late in the day. It's not really as good as Massive X, is it? If you're new to both, it feels like there's no hesitation about which synth should be first choice. Massive is great, but it does sound its age when compared with its younger brother.

As ever, cheers Larry Holcombe for another great video series.

MASSIVE X: Sound Design Vol 1
Great Introduction to M-X Sound Design
Well presented, providing a lot of great inspiration for sound design. I hadn't used Massive X prior to taking this course (only the original Massive) and found it was pretty easy to follow along to. Clear directions, and very good, inspirational examples across several genres

All-Access Pass
intend to keep....
I was only going to use Groove 3 to get me started on Studio One but I found so much more that is useful I will keep the all-access pass for this year and maybe more. I play sax, guitar, keyboard and am starting to learn recording with a DAW and video editing. Keep up the good work...

Logic Pro 10.7 & 10.7.5 Updates Explained
Great as always, but where's the new articulation panel?
The new clip gain is huge and well explained, as is the nested summing folders. I love the explanation of the live step recording, I haven't used that in years, but now I might give it a go.

I mention the articulation panel because I was thinking of going to Cubase simply to get their articulation track, but now they've given us this new functionality to try out. Looks like you can assign all switches to a midi channel. So Cubase is on hold for a minute

Mix Bus Processing Explained
An interesting series at a sensible length
This is another good course from Thomas Cochran. It provides you with some nice ideas for adding an extra something to your entire mix before sending it off for mastering.

However, as with another series by Tom that I completed recently, it has an entire video which relies entirely on one plug-in: the magic ring of power that cannot be substituted with anything else. In this case, it's Soothe2; in the other instance, it was Trackspacer. This is irritating. It feels like a deliberate plug and is quite frustrating.

Top Ten EDM Do's
Great stuff from Adam Pollard once again
Got through this really fast just because it's really entertaining. Lots of excellent ideas and wisdom nuggets to be had.

EMPIRE BREAKS Explained
In-Depth but Easy to Follow!
I had owned Empire Breaks for months but never really got deep into it. I loved the individual samples and patterns, but I knew there was more. This course shows the full potential of the product. The instructor goes under the hood and really shows you how to customize the kits and make the sounds your own. His teaching style is in-depth but easy to follow. A+ Course!

Mixing with Plugin Alliance Plugins Explained

Delay Explained
Kenny is just great
Loved this just as much as the Phase Explained series. This will be great for students new to delay but also for anyone wanting a review.

Kenny has a way of explaining that is just so clear and easy to get. There were a few things that I 'thought' I knew, but after he explained them, I realized that I'd misunderstood somewhere along the way. He's a great tutor for clearing up confusion. We need him back on here; that NYC accent is fun to listen to.

This course is very simplistic and slow-paced, as it should be for its intended audience - the beginner. If you know nothing about the bass guitar and want to start from scratch, this course will suit you well.

Wow - fantastic and entertaining on what I thought would be a boring topic
Kenny does an amazing job here. This course really hooked me from the first video - fantastic use of visual aids to drive points home throughout the series. Loved it.

Compression Explained
A fabulous and surprisingly entertaining series on compression
It's obvious that a lot of love went into the creation of this series. Great visuals used, and carefully chosen analogies and illustrative examples dotted throughout.

Great for anyone who wants to brush up on compression. For a complete newbie, perhaps a little overwhelming in places, but the explanations of the key parameters of a compressor are gold regardless of your level of knowledge.

How to Harmonize on the Piano
Excellent study on harmony concepts
I worked through this book and got so much out of it. Built all the examples in a DAW and worked out the ideas in various ways. Truly useful stuff and will segue nicely into further studies from the author. Mark Harrison is a renowned educator in piano and theory training and I personally own his contemporary ear training and theory volumes as well as the Pop piano book. They are all amazing resources and fun to work with. This book is like a taster of many concepts nicely packaged into one place to give you a "high-level" functional overview. Of course, if you don't own the other titles, you will still get a lot out of this study, especially if you want to just harmonize literally any melody using a piano. Recommended.

KONTAKT 7 Explained
A good overview if a little dry in delivery in places
This series certainly does give you all the information you need, but it is a bit of a slog to get through in places.

STUDIO DRUMMER Explained
Great set of videos
My first time doing a course with Luke Oswald. Very easy to follow, no fluff.

Studio Drummer has just been added to Komplete Now, so I wanted to see what all the fuss is about. This course has you up to speed in just a few hours. It's a great drum sample-playback synth, but my god, how does anyone ever get anything done with the options available today. As a Logic user, I've got DKD, DMD, Ultrabeat and Drum Synth; and now, with NI, there's Battery 4, Studio Drummer, Empire Breaks, Beats...and on and on and on. Stop giving us things, NI! (Although, if you want to throw CHOIR into Komplete Now, fair enough).

Great educator. Great product.

CRUSH PACK Explained
Very helpful
Gary does a great job introducing the Crush Pack.

I guess quite a few people with Komplete Now subscriptions will be watching this now since the pack was recently added into the Komplete Now suite. Very easy to follow and gives some good ideas for practical use.

The NI manual is also really short for these plug-ins, so I'd recommend having that open too while watching as it's not going to take up too much extra brain power. Cheers, Gary!

Songwriting with RealGuitar
Not as in depth as I would have hoped
I liked the presenter and the quick way he goes through the videos. Too many tutorials have too much "waffle" from the presenter where this one didn't have that in my opinion which is a big positive.

On the down side the guitars didn't sound realistic and did sound like an automated Vst. I've seen some tutorials on YouTube which do sound like real guitars but unfortunately the ones in these tutorials don't which was really disappointing. The reason I bought this training module was to learn how to program realistic guitars using Real Guitar & Real Strat software. The guitars in this course fall way short of what I was expecting unfortunately.

Arturia Augmented STRINGS Explained
Attention: Not applicable to "Augmented Strings Intro" version
I've just purchased this tutorial and it seems pretty good. But very soon I discovered that it is highly based in teaching how to use some Advanced functionalities of the instrument which are not available in my version of the instrument. I wasn't aware that there are (at least) 2 versions of A.S.: Augmented Strings and Augmented Strings Intro. The second is a simpler version, and only too late did I realize that it was the one I had. But I didn't find explicit references to those 2 versions anywhere in Arturia's web page. Try finding "Augmented Strings" there, and you'll get access to video tutorials showing the "Intro" version without calling it that way. I think there are clear opportunities for improvement here: Arturia could make a much more public, visible and explicit distinction between the 2 versions, and this course could be offered with a warning note letting us know that it is not applicable to the "Intro" version. You may ask where did I discover that there was such thing as 2 versions and that mine was the "Intro" one...well, in starting to write a request for support to Arturia in their page, only there did I find the first mention to the 2 A.S. options, and also in my Arturia's installed products window app...But, as I said before, neither in the instrument interface itself nor in the product description in the webpage those 2 options are mentioned.

You should point that out in the title iof the tutorial so people can avoid it

Producing & Engineering High End / Top End
Entertainingly delivered even if the results are not always a sale for me
This is the first series I've done with Chris Herrera. He's an entertaining guy and I'd certainly be interested in seeing more from him. The series gets five stars from me simply for the fact that Logic's Delay Designer is used across two videos. I've watched A LOT of video tutorial series, both on Logic specifically and production more generally, and I don't believe I've ever seen anyone using Delay Designer in even one video, let alone two. However, given the title of the course, some of the techniques feel a little too tangential at times. In fact, the Delay Designer videos are in this category for me. I'd also say that some of the sounds that result from a few of the more experimental techniques were not pleasant enough - to my ears, at least - to persuade me, 'yes, that's a technique I'll be using'. But there you go. Different strokes for different folks. A series that's definitely worth checking out, in any case.

Producing & Engineering Low End/Sub-Bass
Very entertaining stuff from Adam Pollard once again
I love Adam's style. He repeats key information in a way that doesn't feel like he's repeating it - through changes in his intonation, or paraphrasing the same idea, or providing a different example to illustrate the same concept. Some people may think this is unnecessary - 'you already told me this!' - but I disagree. We simply don't learn something by hearing it only once. The one thing I really don't like about this course is how it at times feels like product placement for Serum. Indeed, one or two videos are exclusively focused on the use of Serum and sub-bass - I was waiting for the 'if you don't use Serum, you can do x instead' part - but no! The concept was demonstrated in Serum and then the video was over. Nonetheless, the course was so entertaining and well delivered that I can only give it full marks.

Best advice - get the all access pass and use it. Remind yourself you will not treat it like the dusty exercise bike in the corner - use it and grow.

The Mechanics of Mixing in Studio One
Very enjoyable & a reminder that S1 has some great stock plugins
It is easy to overlook the stock plugins when you have a well-stocked (frankly over-stocked) third-party supply. This was a good reminder of the great plugins that ship with S1, especially the console shaper which I often overlook.

I like the video introduction from Eli, makes it much more personable and welcoming :-)

Pedalmania
Nothing to see here folks, move along
This book provides a very high level overview of some pedals. pedalboards, and configuration. But, many of the associated explanations are pretty sparse of unclear (e.g. I already knew the difference between true bypass and buffered, but after reading the author's explanation of the difference, I wondered if he really understood the difference). Moreover, the author spends a lot of time showing you pictures of the fully configured personal pedalboards of others, but if you don't know what the pedals used sound like or you don't know the band, it's kind of a waste.

The best chapter would be chapter 6, where the author gives you a very limited overview of how a few pedals can be configured to get various sounds. However, rather than showing to configure, say, a basic distortion sound configuration, blues sound, surf sound, clean sound or whatever, the author jumps into verbiage about -- for example -- talk boxes, which is pretty useless if you are new to pedals.

So, if you're new to pedals and want to find out more about how to configure a few basic ones to get some tones that will serve as a starting point, skip this book. If you already have some pedal knowledge and use experience, you won't find much here so, again, skip this book.

Ozone 10 Explained
Very helpful!
Eli did a great job in explaining the various components of Ozone 10. I feel a little more confident working in the system.

Mixing with Neutron 4
Very helpful
Being pretty new to isotope this was very informative and I used the videos as I mixed only in izotope. The instructor was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to.

Ozone 10 Explained

Vocal Technique - Developing Your Voice for Performance
Great instructor
This singing instructor clearly knows what she is talking about and just comes across as authentically professional. It's nice to see her working with a student in real-time, too. I'm surprised this video series hasn't received any reviews. There are a few other vocal training series on Groove3 (but overall it's a surprisingly small pool) but they don't come close to this one in providing sensible, specific, non-waffly advice.

Songwriting with Vocal Acapellas
Interesting
I enjoyed watching this over several weeks. It was like sitting in on a session. It's a once off viewing and I got it in a sale.

Pro Tools Automation Explained
Lovely cornflakes with perhaps a little too much milk.
Eli never disappoints and this is no exception. For someone new to PT, this course is not for the fainthearted and I found myself having to look outside this offering to try get my head around what he was doing. This course would need perhaps another viewing unless you're "one of them" geniuses. Some of this is about advanced automation on various tracks at the same time which, for me, was like flying a plane at night. And to make it even more scary, there was no blessing at the end!

Great!
