MOLEKULAR Explained
Nice intro
The tutorial is about the Molekular functions and it does it well. The focus is not so much about how to creatively use the tool, but knowing what the buttons do it will get you started

BreakTweaker Explained
Very thorough explanations
This was an excellent presentation that thoroughly covered this instrument. No joking around or fuss. Just the facts with clear and concise explanations. I learned a lot about Breaktweaker and synthesis in general. Thank you!

Session Guitarist ELECTRICS Explained
Great in-vivo walkthrough
Instead of focusing on a plug-in surface click tour from north to south????, Eli lets us watch his sunburst workflow with the help of small pop song snippets in Logic Pro - extremely helpful for me as a beginner. Thank you so much, Eli.

FLESH Explained
good introduction
Just playing around with Flesh is a bit weird. Now I really understood the concept and I can start creating sounds and beats with my own samples and see/hear what happens ;-)

Harrison Mixbus Explained
Helped me Translate my Pro Tools knowledge over to MixBus 7 !
My background is Pro Tools, so when I bought Mixbus 32C (I already had Mixbus 6 but didn't spend much time learning it) I decided to watch these videos again. Well, after watching all the videos twice (and paying more attention to everything taught) I think I finally have a much better understanding of how to use it. Thanks Groove3 & your excellent teacher!

Ableton Live: Things You Need to Know
favorite tutorial
thanks

UVI Workstation Jump Start
Outdated version, yet a good portion to learn
On thing I have to criticize in general on Groove3: often, you do not find any notes on the version of the described software or when the tutorial was published. Thus you suddenly find yourself watching a somewhat outdated training - like this one on UVI Workstation 2.0.5, while version 3.1.3 is the current one. And there are some major differences between those!
However, Russ Hughes has a good style in explaining the software and pointing out the most important parts. By doing so, you can learn a lot of aspects that are still there, even several versions/years later. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend to record and publish some additional chapters on whats new.

MIDI Explained
Nicely done overview
The course started very technical with explaining MIDI on byte level - what I (as software developer) found very promising. :-) To be honest: it could have been more of this. Then it took a turn to more practical uses of MIDI with DAWs and software/hardware instruments and this covered most of the common use cases.
Although I knew most MIDI related contents before, I still could learn something additional. All in all a concise, useful training with higher value for those who do not yet know MIDI so far, I guess.

Logic Pro X: Creating Generative Music
Interesting - but sounds not very good ...
The results of a pro who was presenting the opportunities of Logic were poor. it sounded like a tryout. With the drums it is helpful, maybe with the arp - but the chords and the randomizer it got weird and sounded not professional.

Arturia Pigments Explained
Motivation through exploration
Tyler Coffin is a very pleasant instructor. He guides his audience through all the areas at just the right pace and explains all the functions of Pigments. In the process, he tries something here, screws a little there, and is pleased with the (often surprising) result. One gets the impression that Tyler is not the greatest sound design expert on earth. And I can't stress enough how likeable I find that - because it makes him just like me! In general, he focuses completely on the instrument and not on his artist skills. This makes him pleasantly stand out from those super virtuous, narcissistic jazz synth pianists on YouTube.

Mixing with Toontrack EZmix 2
Quick and concise rewarding tutorial
This tutorial runs one through the steps in a rapid and thorough demonstration that had, for me in my opinion of motivating me by a fact that the rapid review sped my slow and distracted searches that often led me to exploring things I didn't need to at that particular time. It gave me a quicker way to perceive and approach my work.

Mix School 101
Very comprehensive and clear.
So far this is ONE mix lesson everybody should watch. THE SHAPE OF THE MIX completely puts all the other mix theories together in one spot. Other programs show you how to focus on each instrument. THIS tutorial actually shows you how the 'Imaginary room is set and where you can place each sound for best performance. It sounds simple, but this man said it out loud and put all my other mixing courses int a 'Master understanding" of the mastered mix. Thanks. It relieved a lot of stress from all the knobs and sliders, (AND THE REVERB).

SCARBEE FUNK GUITARIST Explained
Stellar tutorial by an excellent presenter.
I have been waiting for this Groove3 tutorial for years. This exceeded my expectations. The documentation that comes with the plugin isn't very helpful, so these set of videos are a lifesaver.
Larry gives an in-depth look and explains every feature with examples that will speed up your workflow.
I was impressed that he focused on guitar sequences from scratch. By the time you finish watching this tutorial, you will think twice about using rhythm guitar loops. You'll be too busy using this plugin.
Excellent work, Larry. Thanks Groove3.

Band-in-a-Box: Getting Started
THE VERY BEST BB TRAINING!!!
I've been flirting with learning/using BB for a composing companion forever. I've owned maybe 5 versions over the years, yet I've never really gotten a whole lot out of it because I couldn't seem to learn it. It's a shame because it offers so much, right?

PG Music, the developer, has lots of videos but I never had step-by-step instruction for how to set it up and actually USE it until now!

The trainer covers a lot of territory quickly in a very straightforward manner. Get ready to take notes and rewind a lot. It's worth the time and investment.

THIS IS THE BEST BAND IN A BOX TRAINING YOU'LL FIND!

You will, most likely, learn all sorts of other things this software offers, too. It's pretty amazing. They've been developing it for over 30 years and upgrade it significantly each year! Respect . . .

The instructor knows his stuff but talks too fast for me with a boatload of content. I'd also appreciate more actual examples of what he's talking about. That's why I took off 1/2 a star.

That said, this is the best game in town if you want to know your stuff in BB. Enjoy!

All-Access Pass
Fantastic resource for learning music techniques
I am really happy to take the annual membership of the all access pass. I must mention, its worth every penny and i would highly recommend anybody who is interested to learn about music technology and theory to get this. Not only does it a contain a vast spectrum of music related courses; they are really structured in a very easy to use format! If you are into music, and want to know the things this pass is is sure to help you a lot, even in beginner level. Compared to other sites, i believe Groove 3 has the largest collection of tutorials which includes topics as diverse as theory, sound recording techniques, vsts and plugins. I am really very very happy to be a member! Thank you Groove3 !

Ableton Live: Beginner's Guide to Beat Making
The title is a good but think it should be changed to Ableton Live: Beginner's Guide to Producing /Creating Your First Track.
This course is a thorough introduction on how to use Ableton and create a track with the software. The instructor covers all the basic components you need to know to get started and complete a full, finished track. You'll learn important concepts/vocabulary for music production and audio engineering and will walk away with a strong foundation and understanding of what's needed to move forward into more advanced courses. As an educator myself (music/language instruction), I appreciate his approach. I'm looking forward to viewing more of his courses and learning from him. This course is well worth the effort. Make sure to take notes btw ;)

This title states exactly what you'll learn in this video.
I purchased a slide guitar book some 12-14 years ago and it's been sitting here doing nothing. For years I wanted to open it and start learning but had so much to do. I finally took the slide out of the package this morning and decided to watch this video today. I have no regrets. Excellent instruction, as is the standard for Mr. Roth. I'm familiar with him from some of his other videos, as well as Happy Traum's. I'm looking forward to reviewing the techniques he teaches in this video. Definitely worth your time.

iZotope RX7 New Features Explained
IzattopeRX 7
I am very disappointed I have been a subscriber to Groove3 for many years. I like to be able to go in and get information on a product other than just new features. Sometimes I need a refresher on how to use say de-click or remove a bell or horn. Before when I used Groove all these videos were there now there not or I cannot find them.

This is the same with Universal Apollo x8 what is now on this site is very pedestrian. Even to the point of using the Apollo with Pro tools and how to use it and avoid flanging. The only thing the new Video talked about was using it with Logic. Please go back to the way you used to be.

I asked Groove 3 in a chat if they had more detailed videos like before and Tony from Groove 3 said we only have what is there.

At this point Groove 3 is not the help it used to be.

How to Apply Dynamics Processing (The Musician's Guide to Home Recording)
good teacher
The author starts with the basics in plain english. Because he is so clear, it was easy for this relative newcomer to understand the more complex scenarios that later he describes. Rare to find a source like this that does not assume you already know something, and also assumes that you will be able to understand complicated applications of the principles. Very practical and helpful
