Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from MUST WATCH FOR THE ABSOLUTE BEGINNER! Great videos that are taught very well. I just hate that the version of FL used in the video is outdated, but the functions discussed still work in the current version... Well, at least I hope. Will find out soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Much better second time round First saw these videos a couple of years ago, blitzed through them, learned loads then promptly forgot 75% of it. Now I've revisited these videos and just in this first "Getting Started" section, I was amazed at how many basic skills I'd lost. I'm taking much more detailed notes this time :) Thanks again GROOVE3

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Great Intro Although pretty basic, this tutorial gave me actually what I needed to get started with FL. I have never used it before (I use Maschine and Studio One) so it helped me to get started. Again very basic, but enough to get going.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Quick Intro to Fl Studio I've tried using Fl Studio with no reading recently, and because it is such a different DAW than many others, I kept getting stuck and not understanding the workflow...... This Quick Intro tutorial not only answered a few big stumbling blocks I ran into, but also gave easy to understand examples for basic song creation. This is NOT a full spectrum learning course, it is a quick and easy, get ya going type course, and for that, it does it well......... IE, I was able to create and modify a basic groove song fairly easy after watching this!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Most Comprehensive Tutorial I've Seen I have had FL Studio for over a year now and really didn't know very much about it. This Video really gave me a good overall understanding of how to use it. I love Eli's easy going flow and presentation he is one of my favorite tutors here on Groove 3.
