Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Some useful content This set of videos are taken from a webinar, so only limited scope for actual music creation. The main arrangement video had some useful tidbits which are transferable across DAW applications. I'd like to see more arrangement videos using Cubase 9, in different electronic music styles. So, come on Groove 3, lets get some artists on video and get them to share their knowledge!
