Rated 1.0 out of 5 by from Not too pleased The training in and of itself is ok. The problem is 90% of what is shared can be found on YouTube for free on toontrack YouTube page. They even have a playlist setup for this very topic. Sorry but I can’t justify the return on my investment for this particular training. I was hoping the training would go beyond a surface overview of the software. Again, it is already cover for free by toontrack. This one left me feeling robbed :)
