KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 Power Start
Insatisfaction
It’s the first time that i’m disapointed with a groove formation.
To much time passed on the screen with the mouse to learn how my keyboard works (???)
I do all the formation proposed, but it was frustrating.
Sorry for my bad english. I’m a french guy.

Hands down the BEST tutorial site!!!
After purchasing a number of plugins for my new studio setup, I was a bit overwhelmed with having to learn all of the new tools & features of everything. Groove 3 helped me navigate through the basics & into the more advanced complexities of different plugins & now my mixes are sounding better than ever!! Amazing site!!

BreakTweaker Explained
Beautifully Explained!
I'm always amazed by how calm and soothing Eli's voice is in addition to how detailed his courses are. Every plugin is broken down to, as Eli likes to put it, its 'nuts and bolts'. This BreakTweaker Explained tutorial is no different! It's like reading the entire manual under 3 hours! It's amazing!

KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 Power Start
Good except....
As a power start it is very good. S series is a MIDI Controller Keyboard. Needs more attention to using MIDI to affect parameters and mapping and explaining. Otherwise worth watching.

All-Access Pass
Absolutely a great deal for the price!
So far I have watched the Arturia Pigments series and it was very informative. I love the Favorites feature that can be used on Series as well as individual video. I was able to add all the videos I intend to watch so I can just go through my list without searching every time I want to start something new.

Love it!
I'm a new Groove3 user, and I've just finished binge watching ''NI Studio Drummer Explained''.

I've been using NI for years and I'm very familiar with their Abbey Road drums style interface. The videos unlocked a few features that don't seem to be in the products user manual. Also, the videos helped me re-explore some features that I may have brushed over.

I've recently purchased an iZotope bundle and I'm looking forward to viewing Groove3's ''explained'' tutorials.

Cheers!

Notion Explained
6 Stars!
If 5 stars is the highest rating, I give this program 6 stars. I've purchased many instruction videos on various subjects, and this is by far the best one I have ever come across. The instructor, Mr. Hess is not only knowledgeable, he is a great teacher. I wasted many frustrating hours surfing the web and trying to lean Notion for free. I was almost ready to give up on Notion altogether. However after these lessons from Mr. Hess, I now love Notion and I'm happy to leave Sebilius for good. Believe me, this video course is worth every penny. You should also know that his book is just as good as the video and I recommend to all that you buy both.

Working with T-RackS 5
Could be more helpful with more "why" instead of who, what, where and how.
I just bought T-Racks 5 after watching the first couple of your tutorials about it. It appears to be the best product I could find to Master my songs in Cubase 10.5. Luckily it was on sale for this Black Friday for a big discount after waiting to get it after about 6 weeks seeing it for the first time in your Class.
Immediately I watched all of the tutorials.
To be honest I have to say that I am not certain this was as helpful I hoped.(Note I have been recording In Cubase since Ver.7.0 came out 13-14 years, using the Cubase EQ, Compression etc. plugins. More recently I decided to try Mixing and Mastering my songs more professionally.)
I found the lessons helpful enough finding the buttons and some of the 38 plugins capabilities, graphs and such but not much more than that.
I ALMOST ALWAYS FIND that trainers whether training about Photoshop, Microsoft Windows, Web Design, Cubase ( they are the best I think), Toontrack products, even music lessons like guitar playing or piano etc. all do the same thing whether in video or in books.
Trainers show us the who can use it, what it will do, where to find what it does, but seldom "why" to use that function over another setting.
For example...The 2nd lesson about metering shows me where to look at the numbers, the graphs, the options, the buttons etc. but not why an acoustic guitar sound should be using a different setting for different reasons. There is an assumption that a person wanting (for example) to buy and learn about T-RackS 5 already know sa lot more about Compression, EQ, Limiters than they may not know and why they need that setting changed. The trainer is showing sound examples as he is quickly making changes and only saying "that is better" but not why. Also I know that everyone hears differently, wants a different sound etc. and that is subjective. Therefore a trainer should explain why he thinks "that is better" and should also be able to explain "why it is better" in his example. I think taking 1 or 2 plugins, like EQ (as simple as they are) to show "why" it would completely the change an acoustic guitar sound with out having to figure it out after hours of listening. Listening to complete songs with vocals, bass, drums, guitars, keyboards etc. doesn't help with these plugins alone.
Maybe you should do a series of T-RackS 5 plugins for individual Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Vocals and Bass tracks to help blending and mixing those tracks first before Mastering a final version.
After watching this course (I'm starting again)I had to review a PC Music Magazine I bought 12 years ago (when I couldn't afford a lot of expensive plugins), to understand what the key purposes and differences they were. Cubase lessons didn't help either in their tutorials or the manual.

Thanks for reading my thoughts.

Big Book of Backing Tracks
A Big Help!
It's just great to have a backing band, playing some really nice rhythm tracks for you to help hone your guitar playing. This is especially good in that you work at your own level, and not have to worry about "the rest of the band". So many options and different keys for you to try. I'll be using this on a regular basis. I highly recommend this book!

Best genre walkthrough I've watched yet!
This is the first walkthrough from groove3 i've watched on specific genre's, and i must say it's by far the best. Step by step for the different parts of a song and very well explained.

The whole "pile everything at once, mix it, and then arrange it" workflow is FANTASTIC. Makes it so much easier than trying to figure out parts as you go.

Looking forward to watching the other U-Produce video

EZdrummer 2 Advanced
Not too pleased
The training in and of itself is ok. The problem is 90% of what is shared can be found on YouTube for free on toontrack YouTube page. They even have a playlist setup for this very topic. Sorry but I can’t justify the return on my investment for this particular training. I was hoping the training would go beyond a surface overview of the software. Again, it is already cover for free by toontrack. This one left me feeling robbed :)

iZotope RX 8 Explained
Shallower than I would like.
This video offers a bite-sized, digestible look at the modules of RX 8, and would be useful for a novice to audio editing. As someone new to the program, the tips on workflow and shortcuts in particular were appreciated.

That being said, I was disappointed by the lack of actionable or technical information about how the modules work under the hood, or even"tips and tricks." Some of the spectral tools in RX 8 are incredibly powerful, but I feel like the presentation was a lot of "This is a black box that does a thing. Be gentle with your settings, and use multiple passes." This is good advice, but doesn't do much to explain what you're actually doing.

Perhaps a follow-up series or master class would be more what I'm looking for.

u-he Diva: Making a Track from Scratch
5 Stars to Groove 3......and here is why.
I've watched just the first video in this series and the beautiful thing is I can listen to the final version of the song right away. I love that I don't have to waste 2.5 hours and still not get the final version of the song.

Right off the bat, I can:
a. know if this is the education I want to invest my time in
b. If I like certain elements of the music, I can jump into the sections that address those elements that I want to learn and skip over the ones I am not interested at the moment.
c. I can focus on areas that I need my attention.

Good job Groove 3 in listening to our suggestions/feed back and I am hopeful every new video will have the same format.

This makes learning fun.

I am going to delve into this series a little more.

I am going to give this 5 stars because I know that education is always good but you have addressed my most pressing concern in the introduction video itself.

Creating Realistic MIDI Strings
Concepts Very Helpful
I liked all of the concepts that were shared. I had thought from the introduction that he would be showing how these could be done on a variety of string programs including budget friendly sets. Unfortunately, he continued to call attention to features of mostly the one NI set. It would have been helpful if he had shown how these same things could be accomplished in ways that did not include the specific features of the plugin. Otherwise, as mentioned, the concepts were helpful.
