Superior Drummer 3.1 Update Explained
Just as clear as the main SD3 course
Very helpful stuff and a great follow-up to the main course!

One thing I'd note is that I can't help but feel like this could've just been added to the existing Superior Drummer 3 Explained course.

Not a big deal at all if you're on a yearly plan (like I am at the time of writing this) but people who purchase this as a lifetime buy might think differently.

Les Paul
Different, but great!
This was more like a TV interview than a guitar lesson. However, Les is such an amazing person that it actually makes for a better video. There is some great concert footage, (He would've been in his late 80s, early 90s!), some guitar and music theory, as well as some amazing stories about all his inventions.... too cool.

Before this course i was like oh push 2 is cool for the drum rack and making some melodies here and there. Taking this course opened up my imagination to completely another level. Great course, easy to understand, and goes into detail extremely good. Loved it!

Serum Tips & Tricks
Excellent course, not just for Serum but on patch design more generally
Practical, direct training on Serum sound design. Shows how well crafted Serum is as a synthesiser by using those features, and Multiplier gives a great practitioner's perspective on how to get the best from it. Many thanks!

Creating Realistic MIDI Strings
A few helpful tips.
A few tips in there that can be used in future compositions, but this felt more like a product demo for NI's Symphony Series. "Creating Realistic MIDI Strings" Step 1 : fork out £400+ for this library, and use all the simple features it offers. I wanted to know how to do these features without the "win" button!

Vacuum Pro Explained
Weaves together all the features so concisely
Pace and detail of this course was perfect for me. Really appreciated the clear connections made between the various features. The sample music used to illustrate each feature was well chosen and added to my understanding.

Perfect Presonus Studio One
I enjoyed that this took me through things fast and got me going! I usually like to look, listen and pause the video as I work, and try things on my laptop as I go.

Logic Pro X Drummer Explained
Terrific Training!
As usual, Eli does an amazing job of sharing a torrent of information that is pertinent, useful, and clear. He has an amazing "no BS" way of training and always gets right to the point. Best video trainer I've ever encountered.

Thanks Eli! (I'm a trainer myself!)

Guitar Licks with Greg Koch
Just great fun!!!
Greg's always killer.... But, what makes this video fun, it is that you can watch it as a guitar lesson, as a music history lesson , or just for fun. The lessons are so short that they are fun to watch.

REAKTOR Know-How: The Basics
Ideal Starter for Understanding Reaktor 6
Reaktor 6 is powerful, but daunting. This was an ideal primer course to show the various components before digging deeper into the internals.

iZotope Ozone 9 Explained
Very Helpful!
I had recently bought Ozone like a few weeks ago and I'm completely noob to the mastering process. Taking this course really helped me understand what I could do with the Ozone as well as some nice mastering tricks. The content is extremely detailed as the plugin has a lot of stuff. The only negative experience I had was I would wish some parts would be explained and shown in more time. As some things were hard to grasp. But still I can come back and rewatch while doing the actual work I guess. So my review is still a 5 star. Thank you for this great course!

iZotope VocalSynth 2 Explained

Compression has been one of the hardest things for me to understand until I watched this video. Now it's quite clear to me what it does in very different scenarios. I love how visual this content was as well as audible. Thank you!

Studio One 4.5 Update Revealed
Rushed and nothing more than a trailer
This 'tutorials' are nothing more than trailers of S1 4.5. The instructor will not teach you how to achieve things, he is simply telling you what is new. For that we have tons of guys on youtube doing it for free.

Synthwave Production Explained
An excellent production for synth players, especially those from the 80s
This was an excellent overview of the synthwave genre. Especially helpful for us original 1980s players who are not sure where their rather cheesy sounds and styles they know and love from the 80s fit with contemporary genres.

It may be still a niche genre but it is still absolutely recognisable as a derivative of the original.

The instructor has a solid understanding of how the sounds are constructed and also why they were done they way they were - the continual forward drive was a result of having very limited programming and polyphony as well as a stylistic choice in a lot of cases.

I miss working with synthetic sounds (mostly doing video scoring now) so this is a nice way to be able to go back and play with some of the "New Romantic" and "New Wave" stuff which is now so old :-)

It is awesome to see Groove3 covering a wider spectrum of genres with synthwave, ambient and chill starting to make more of an appearance.

This is perfect if you want a professional and in depth understanding of EQ. I produce in Ableton & Pro Tools and have a good understanding but this series increased my knowledge ten fold. Highly recommend.

Orchestral Mixing Explained
easy explanation for a difficult topic
There are a couple of very interesting tools
Hobbyist, Musician, Logic Pro, Reaper

Orchestral Library Toolbox
No words can describe this tutorial - Simply Outstanding !!
If you need an all-in-one tutorial that explains how to deal with sample libraries and virtual instruments in real depth, this tutorial is definitely for you. Beginner or expert, it doesn't really matter, this tutorial is going to take you by hand from scratch without any prior VST knowledge. With over 11 hours of extensive information, you're going to learn every single detail. Although I am not finished with this mammoth course yet, I am so satisfied with my half journey.

Bravo to both instructors !!!!

Studio One: Beginner's Guide
Fantastic for a newcomer to the world of DAWs
This is a really good course. My previous recording experience (years ago) had been with a hard disk recorder, not a DAW, so I was aware of some of the kinds of things I needed to do, but I was completely unfamiliar with the language and interface used for a DAW. I'd been watching other videos on Studio One and found them consistently frustrating, with more questions raised than answered. But somehow with this course Eli managed to present exactly the kind of information I needed, doing so both effectively and succinctly.

Flex Time Explained
Great course!
It's very clear, to the point, and based on very practical applications.

I'm being a little picky and taking off half a star as, while overall I think the content is still very much relevant to current versions of Logic Pro X, the fact that this course is done on Logic 9 does make it feel a bit dated.

Logic Pro X Jump Start
EXCELLENT COURSE!
Eli has a knack for delivering information in a rapid-fire, no-nonsense fashion that has me rewinding constantly - but only because he drops so many little tips, tricks, and gems so quickly that I have to absorb them. He is always professional, courteous, and very competent. I'm a trainer myself, and I know quality teaching when I see it. This is the best it gets folks.

Useful as always
I am a big fan of Kenny Gioia's tutorials and this was also very interesting and useful.

I also liked the song a lot and did a remix of it, adding some additional layers (acoustic guitar, keyboards etc.). Is it permitted to post the remixed version on my own Youtube-channel (with full credits, of course)?

The Bruce Swedien Recording Method
A Great Window Into the Mind of A Genius
This book and its accompanying videos really help you to wrap your mind around the genius of Bruce Swedien. Bruce spares neither detail nor his opinion when talking about his process. His passion for music and the process of recording it is second to none and incredibly contagious.

Despite the credits, awards, and collaborations under his belt, Mr. Swedien speaks with a humility and sincerity that is very refreshing. Bruce's words will inspire you to become a great engineer while also giving you the information on how to make it a reality. Get your notebook ready as he provides you with critical information about gear (especially microphones), his personal engineering journey, and pearls of wisdom that he has acquired over his lasting career.

All in all, this book gives great insight into Bruce Swedien: the Engineer and Bruce Swieden: the Man. I believe you'll see that they are one in the same and are equally important in creating the legendary figure that is so revered in the world of music.

While I would certainly be honored to meet Bruce, this book and video series is truly the next best thing.

Ableton Live 10 Explained
VERY HELPFUL!
I'm having fun so far. I'm an extensive Logic Pro X user, so I'm not new to production, but learning a new DAW simply expands your horizon, and even though I've used Live 9 a bit, Live 10 comes with features that are either improved versions of Live 9 features, or are features that are a combined form of 2 or more features from previous versions, not to mention the workflow change that is inevitable when a new version comes out. So far, Ableton Live is amazing and this course was just what I needed! Can't wait to finish the course and start producing!

Creative Sound Design with Native Instruments Effects Series
Excellent advice from an experienced producer that goes far beyond the simple use of FX plugins
Questions that will be answered by this course:

- Do I really need another chorus, phaser, distortion, or frequency manipulator?
- How do I build a song from scratch?
- How does an experienced producer and sound designer use these effects in modern music production?
- I have some good musical ideas but how do I put them all together in a basic arrangement?
- What are some basic mixing techniques that I can apply to my instrument parts?

I LOVED THIS COURSE

As a user of Native Instruments Komplete 12, the number of included plugins is impressive but the thought of learning how to use each of them is quite daunting. As a producer and sound designer, my first thought about the new NI’s effect plugins was, “why do I need these?” The sound design possibilities of these plugins facilitates a level of creativity that reaches beyond the traditional uses of these types of plugins.

Fabio shows how to apply NI’s effects to your drum samples to bring up the quality of your beats. He also shows how to apply them to instruments in a way that can lends itself to producing sample loops and extra melodic tracks you may not have considered in your original compositions.

Overall, what I loved about this course was the creation of a song from start to finish. Sprinkled throughout the course are dozens of real-world tips that facilitate smarter workflows, workarounds to common problems, creative advice, and good practices. I found a huge amount of value from this course. Thanks Fabio!
