Nectar 4 Explained
Excellent Mate !
Brilliant and helpful tutorial again by Eli. I watched and applied it to the tracks I'm working on while watching the tutorial.

D16 Silverline Distortions Explained
Good Stuff!
Glad you put this together. I'm a big fan of Decimort and Devastator 2. I use them all the time when processing drum breaks but have felt like I was just scratching the surface just fiddling with presets and the dry/wet know.

Calibrating Your Studio Monitors Explained
Simply the best out there, bar none
Finally, the best audio calibration I could ever get. My speakers and room sing and I am super thankful. Warning: this is not a master class you can skip ahead or watch while doing something else... you have to set time apart and turn that phone off. I thought I knew REW and RePhase (all free software btw) but I was so wrong. The level of clarity pays off. I am semi-pro, not totally a beginner, but I thought I had it, before I watched this. Great stuff, I would love a follow-up for subwoofer tuning!

Producing & Engineering Low End/Sub-Bass
Ambitious well-made course - Why your bass does not sound that you want.
Getting a bass that sounds distinct and sharp can be tricky if you lack the understanding of how different frequencies affect each other.
This course covers all aspects why a bass does not sound as desired and how you solve them all.

Absolutely great course. FF is such an easy UI to learn from. Laurence uses it really well
I'm a decent mixer but not great. Each course I do teach's me something new (of course) but this course really made me understand the process flow with mixing. FF has such a great UI that it's easy to see what is being taught. Laurence is giving a great work flow and why.

Thorough, well-made video and many practical tips.
Good for beginners who have a bedroom studio, but also I think that many experienced studio technicians can benefit and refresh how sound waves behave in reality.
Everyone can probably find important grains of knowledge, so I well worth checking all sections, (at least a quick look.

I have watched many of his videos but again his preference for using very short loops for demonstrating (as he said) is annoying. Focusing on the annoyance takes away from the awesome point he's trying to make.

Neutron 4 Explained
Very Helpful. I found the examples useful.
I just hope he considers using longer looped sections of the track he's using for demonstrating. It can be very difficult to listen to a 3 sec loop for and hour and a half. I have had to skip some of his videos as a result of that.

Reason 9 Know-How: Workflow Enhancements
Very informative, even if older v9!
I thought this FREE course was very informative, inspiring, and well communicated (aka easy to understand with examples).
Still valid today even though older v9 used. So much to learn on modern DAW's like Reason, I think little morsels like this are very helpful.
Thanks Dave and G3! Looking fwd to more useful FREE stuff and keeping Dave on the radar as good instructor!

Secrets of Creative Compression
Excellent stuff!
I really enjoyed the ideas Tom showcases in this series. An added bonus is that each video is around seven minutes long - a nice length, I feel - and one which is pretty much perfect for fully illustrating the ideas being shown.

This series is a great way to deepen your understanding of all things compression.

bx_crispytuner Explained
Excellent
A very enjoyable overview of the bx_crispytuner. No stone is left unturned and yet the series only clocks in at around an hour. Nice.

This is a plug-in for which my initial reaction was 'meh', but when Eli moved on from the Simple and Advanced tabs into an overview of the Graphical one, that's where the possibilities really started to become apparent. This plug-in could be a lot of fun to use and is very user-friendly.

Cheers, Eli!

Logic Pro: Drum Synthesis Explained
Completely amazing course
'Amazing course' probably would get the point across, but 'completely amazing course' seems a better fit. I've just completed this course again after two years and it is just fantastic. Ultrabeat is amazing and Larry makes it come to life. One of my favorite ever courses, probably - and I've done a lot of them!

The only thing I don't quite get is why DMD is introduced as THE way of getting access to the Step Sequencer and channel-strip processing for individual drum sounds. Can't you do both of these things without leaving Ultrabeat? You can use a multi-output option and still use the Step Sequencer within Ultrabeat. Or am I missing something? Probably, I am. Still, for anyone not familiar with Drum Machine Designer, this video shows you how to go about using the two instruments in conjunction.

Still can't believe this course doesn't have any reviews other than from people who share my name. Perhaps Ultrabeat simply isn't being used anymore, which is a shame, because it sounds great. Probably it's an interface thing. Not everyone is into UFO-style designs.

Thanks, Larry. Such a great course! In fact, you could even say that it's completely amazing.

Mixing for Depth & Space Explained
Useful insights from Tom once again
Another useful series from Tom. He could perhaps use the word 'super' a little less, as it can feel like he's trying to sell the techniques a bit too hard. I'm also not sure whether I fully believe him when he says, 'I think I'm hearing a resonance at 300Hz' and then the resonance is indeed at 300Hz. OK, perhaps his ears are that well trained - but that's very specific...Or maybe I'm just jealous.

Anyway, thank you for another insightful set of videos!

Producing Tech House
Very well explained
Another excellent set of tutorials

Thorn Explained
Worse than a video manual, because sound selection was torture
This course was no better than reading the manual and playing around with Thorn yourself. The sounds selected to demo each feature were often horrible and barely even showcased the feature in question. It's like there was zero planning on the part of the instructor other than to point and click and talk. The ambient patch at the end was pretty good and there were some good pointers there, but the bass patch was horrendous; I have no idea why the instructor thought that was a good example of using Thorn to make a bass sound.

In the end, I didn't learn much of anything that I couldn't have learned just by playing around with it, and had to endure constantly scratchy, horrible sounds that Thorn can tend to make if you're not smoothing/filtering etc. This is fine at some points so people see the process, but watching a whole course of it was just torture. Horrible sound selection for demoing.

Phase Plant Explained
Great Tutorial Series
Groove 3 is definitely one of the best investments I've ever made, and this series is fantastic. A Phase Plant tutorial series was one of the few things I needed and didn't get from Groove 3... Until now.

This is probably not the best synth tutorial too watch first in your music production training, I would recommend the Serum and Sylenth tutorials here on Groove 3 for that purpose, but if you do have some experience with synthesizers this is the perfect way to get acquainted with and start using this amazing synthesizer.

Presonus ATOM Explained
Excellent Course
The Presonus ATOM has a lot of capabilities, many I did not know existed or did not know how to use them. This course did a fantastic job of walking me through all of the settings and what they do. I learn best by watching and experimenting, and this course is set up perfectly for me and does a nice job with showing the effects in Studio One while at the same time showing you the ATOM and what is being set. There are other training sites, but so far I found the lessons on Groove3 to
1) Have the best instructional videos
2) Have the best prices
3) Have courses on topics not found anywhere else

I like the options to either purchase and own forever, or to subscribe and view every single video during your subscription. I am a buyer, so I purchased it.

I waited a bit before leaving my review, so that I could give my honest opinion. I have purchased some other lessons as well, but have not gotten to them yet. But I will say, as far as Presonus ATOM Explained, this is an excellent course. So if you want to learn the ATOM, this IS the course.

Easy way into the ukulele
I enjoyed this a lot. Jim is very likable.

As a beginning ukulele player, I would have preferred more songs and fewer interviews with ukulele players. That feels more niche and of interest to someone who's been playing a while. Otherwise though, the course provides a very good non-intimidating way to get familiar with the instrument.

Mastering with Ozone 10 Explained
Underwhelmed
Mastering with Ozone 10 Explained by Larry Holcombe, the course covers various mastering aspects. While the tutorial has its merits, I didn't like it's approach. There was no indication that we were going to use individual modules in the description.

The course provides a good foundation by introducing learners to individual standalone modules within Ozone 10. Understanding each module's functionality is crucial, and the course succeeds in delivering this knowledge. However, it would have been even more valuable if the emphasis had been on integrating these modules into the Mothership to give a cohesive mastering workflow, focusing on how they synergistically contribute to creating a polished final master. This was harder to see because of the DAW used.

One notable aspect that could be enhanced is the application of changes during the course. The adjustments made by Larry are often quite subtle, making it challenging for learners to discern their full impact audibly. While mastering is an art of nuances, showcasing more pronounced changes could have enabled learners to grasp the practical differences that specific techniques bring about more effectively.

VALVES Explained
Exceptional course on this amazing, unique instrument.
One of my favorite courses by Eli. Extremely insightful, concise overview of this remarkable instrument.

Valves is a totally unique NI instrument... I've got 14 Komplete UCE and tons of other VI's I've never encountered anything like this.

This is one of those Groove 3 courses that facilitates a much easier approach to learning this instrument, compared with the manual, which is a bit hard to comprehend, initially, due to the complexities of the options 'under the hood (bonnet?)'.

Great job, Eli!

Mastering with Ozone 10 Explained
Fantastic overall, but perhaps more variety in approach could be showcased
While I really enjoyed this and got lots out of it, the mastering process Larry follows for all three tracks is almost identical. I think there'd be more to learn if he weren't following the same process - particularly given that these are different genres of music - as it starts to become a little too formulaic. Also, a small part of the country track is put on loop for literally about 10 minutes. Surely, a few more sections could have been used, as this becomes unnecessarily distracting.

Don't get me wrong, though. I did still really enjoy doing this course and found the structure and content to be excellent. It starts with a more general first half about mastering and some key concepts to consider, before a very practical second half in which the concepts are illustrated using real-world examples. And there was a bonus feature in that we finally get to see inside the 'Larry's Faves' folder, which has been intriguing me, at least, for ages :-)

TRK-01 Explained
Excellent overview of this plug-in
Really easy to follow and will leave you confident about getting to grips with this plug-in.

Larry also provides more general insights into how to create effective kick drums and what you need to consider when synthesizing one, before showing how TRK-01 caters for these factors.

If I have one gripe, it's that, when illustrating the Bass FX and the Bass Pattern Editor, Larry is using a completely inappropriate bass sound - it's barely audible. Not sure why he couldn't just quickly tweak it so that we can hear the bass very clearly so that any movements to the dials makes a difference to the sound.

Overall though, very enjoyable and educative (is that a word?) series.

Mixing with Ozone 10 Explained
Interesting take on Ozone
As ever from Larry, an enjoyable and insightful series on mixing. This will give you another angle from which to approach using Ozone. Perhaps the best piece of advice is, ‘ fix whatever’s annoying you most’. Larry also seems to have learned from previous series not to play a loop of audio for too long lest the viewer spontaneously combust - or he still sometimes does so but now warns you in advance. Mr Holcombe is a massive asset to Geoove3.

Producing House with Native Instruments
Very helpful but with needless omissions
This is another excellent series showcasing how to use NI when producing and mixing music. The reason I don’t give this one five stars, however, is that Tom chooses to use his own drum samples, as he did in the sister series on Producing Indie Pop music with NI. I don’t understand why he does this given that the point of the series is to showcase NI instruments. He could have used Battery, Drum Lab, Polyplex or any other NI Drum VST. This seems like a missed opportunity to further explore the instruments.

Mixing with FabFilter Plug-Ins
100% Platinum — WAY more than FF filters, all about MIXING!!!
Where to start with how brilliant this course is.

1. The first think I’m doing is rewatching it and taking good notes. This is one of the best MIXING tutorials out there.

2. I’ll be looking up and watching EVERY other video tutorial this presenter presents, no matter what the title says. I know there will be gold in them tutorials!

3. I will be checking out the FabFilter specific tutorials to get the finer nuances and “this is what you’d know if you bothered to read the manual” information.

4. Thanking the deities that be that Groove3 produces quality product like this. So so so much more efficient to learn with G3 than try to track down the good stuff on YT (which necessitates weeding out the terrible, choking, I-want-your-eyeballs-and-your-money ‘tutorials.’)

If you’re looking for a great mixing course, look no further.

If your mixes don’t improve DRAMATICALLY as you proceed through the course… rewind, start again and PAY ATTENTION!

Can’t thank y’all enough!

Native Instruments Sound Design Tips & Tricks
Useful tips and tricks
A nice range of ideas displayed here, some really basic, others more technical. Tom strikes a very good balance in this regard.

One thing I’m not so keen on, however, is how frequently Ableton is used instead of NI. When resampling, for example, why not use Kontakt’s sampler? Many of your viewers won’t have Ableton, but if they’re watching a series on NI, you can be confident they will have Kontakt. Otherwise, this is yet another insightful series from Tom.
