Excellent Tutorial!

This tutorial was awesome and to the point!!! So sad that stevemarchant appears to be illiterate. Perhaps he has a learning disability that makes it hard for him to understand information that is being presented. Whatever the reason for his shortsighted review, I really liked it, the narrator gave a clear and concise explanation of the workings of this cool plugin.

Annoying narrative

I wa really looking forward to learning about WaveLab but he the narrative of this video is extreeeeeeeeemly anoying in that the author has edited out all the natural pauses that occur when in normal speech. I really can not bear to listen to any more. I will look for courses by other major re natural sounding authors.

Great introduction to WaveLab

Really glad that I found this video series. Explains a lot about the interface. It is a bit slow and overly in depth on file managing at the beginning, but less so toward the end. Would have liked more of the slow in depth stuff at the end. Albeit, this video was invaluable to me to see WaveLab working.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

Having a father with a recording studio and having played guitar since being a 14 year old kid, I quickly got into recording. But, the purchase of a Tascam 244 Portastudio was a breakthrough in realizing what I wanted to do.

2. What training have you had?

I taught myself to play guitar and keyboards and found it a remarkably calming and mathematical experience learning the rules of intervals within a scale and how they can take you to any chord.

3. When did you get into recording?

The purchase of the cassette based Tascam 244 lasted a fair few years until I moved up to a Roland VS880 which then linked in to building a purpose built commercial multimedia studio around 15 years ago mainly running Steinberg and Adobe software.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Thankfully, nobody famous enough to have an ego. Instead 100's of happy Joe Public clients.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

My degree is in English and Teaching and I was a grammar school teacher for over 10 years before changing direction and working solely from my studio. recording music and filming for clients.
