Many Things Not Covered
I'm surprised there is not one lesson devoted to fills and how to put together a song? Whereas there are many lessons that are redundant and move along too slow. Once a topic like using the reverb is discussed the presenter doesn't have to slowly go over things like "this is how you turn it up...this is how you turn it down...all the while showing how to turn a slider or knob up and down. It's pretty ridiculous. And not enough time was devoted on how to record audio clips and then how to clear the recorder to record another beat. I'm not sure if it's a bug in my software, but there are many times where I cannot clear a clip from the clip board. Overall these are good tutorials, there just needs to be some effort towards how to put songs together using different parts....maybe I missed something, but I have not been able to find that lesson if it does exist?
