Easy going and we'll presented contains some diamonds

Although I'm extremely board of the beat repeat effect by now there is superb information here. The guide on macros, effects racks, mapping and how to make the most of your controller is really useful. Essential viewing for live performers. Presented in a nice relaxed manor unlike many tutorials that come off very formal and can be a chore to watch for extended periods. I easily watched all these from start to finish in one sitting. Looking forward to more from Josh!
