okay

Presenter's manner of presentation was too distracting, as he conveyed the feeling that the subject manner was trite and too simple for him to be serious with the material. (Presenter should review videos by Kenny Gioia, as an example of invaluable tutorials)

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thank you for your review!
I'm very sorry you didn't like the authors presentation of the material but I feel as you go through the videos further you will find the content to be very valuable when getting up and running on this software. He goes through most of the basics and will have you using Bitwig Studio in no time!

I Feel Better Now!

I like the way Tim takes you through every nut and bolt of Bitwig Studio. Really helped me quickly get on board with it. Before this tutorial I was just staring at Bitwig and going, "how in the world am I gonna figure this thing out with these millions of little icons all over the place?" Well now I got it clearly and quickly thanks to this tutorial. I feel so much better now. I love Groove 3. Thanks!

Excellent primer for an excellent DAW

This set of tutorials is a great starting point for this newly developed DAW. The instructions are clear and cover all the main aspects to get you going. Some features have been added to the current version (1.3.8 at the time of this review), so I expect more great videos to come!!!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

As a very young kid my parents signed me up for piano lessons. My mom said if I quit that I would regret it later on in life, but I thought piano lessons were boring! Electronic music was a natural progression for me from those early days, it let me combine my love of technology and all things nerdy with a love of loud and strange noises.

2. What training have you had?

I've had years and years of training from a good friend of mine named "The Internet", and before him my other good pal "Trial and Error". 

3. When did you get into recording?

The wonder of synthesis and certain electronic music is that you never really have to record anything if you don't want to! Although I do remember way back in the day recording found sounds on an old garage sale cassette recorder I bought, and using those samples in old school Trackers on the Apple II.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with, and for, a whole bunch of fantastic people so far. Some of the more popular ones include Empire of the Sun, Dirty South, Ash, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Kennedy, Hong Kong Blondes, Loverush UK, Molly Bancroft, Made by Monkeys, Tiff Lacey, Marcie, Offer Nissim and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Madonna chose a track I made for a compilation she released, although she never called or took me for lunch! That really doesn't count as 'working with' does it!?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I'm good at training people because I remember what it was like to be the newbie, and I try and go over things that I would have found interesting and cool, back when I was starting out. I take the time to learn the techniques inside and out, and then break that down quickly for people.
