Eye opening, really helpful

This is my 3rd FL studio course I've taken on Groove3. All were very helpful and this goes into very useful techniques. I'm still running the FL Studio demo. I've been studying these FL Studio course as pre-sales research. My main DAWs are Digital Performer, Samplitude, and Studio One in that order. But I have others including Ableton Live, Sonar (very good audio engine BTW), and some others like Renoise and and Reason. The work flows in FL Studio are streamlined and the plug ins well integrated into these work flows. So you can do things in FL studio with very steps than the other DAWs. It would be difficult without this FL studio Tips & Tricks course to start discovering these streamlined techniques. I'm getting close to a buy decision on FL studio because I noticed I the FL Studio plug in in my other DAW's. If I insert this on a channel slot I have FL Studio instantly integrated into that channel - no messing around with Rewire.

An overview of the under the hood features of FL Studio.

I hope Groove 3 doesn't stop here. Patcher, the mixer, Sytrus, and Harmor need their own tutorials. This is great for a beginner who has never encountered some of the features in FL such as layering. It's also nice the video touched on the plugin database. Hopefully Groove 3 will expand on some of these in future videos.

I started playing around with music at a young age with garage sale keyboards or whatever else I could get my hands on. My older brothers were very much into bands and guitars, and so I was always around some of the culture. I played alto sax throughout school in the concert, marching, and jazz bands. Browsing through our home computer in middle school, I started playing with music trackers and sequencers that my brothers had installed. From there I found FL Studio, which the demo version we had at that time was still called FruityLoops. It proved to be an excellent passtime for a kid like myself where I could mess around and make some silly little tunes. Through high school and college, I became very well versed in the world of computer audio and all the things that can be done with synthesizers and digital recording. With the growing understanding came a growing excitement for the endless possibilities that I could achieve in music, sound design, and recording. So I kept learning and searching further, where I kept finding that there was always more to learn! 
 
I was, and continue to be, captivated by every step of music production, be it creative or technical in nature. I’ve been fortunate to work under many kinds of production circumstances, whether in a professional studio space such as Mudcat Studios in Utah or getting a professional sound out of various home studios that I’ve used for recording instruments and live bands. I’ve also been able to work on my fair share of electronic music, either solo or with other producers in person or online for collaborations. And now with Groove3, I take great pride in sharing the knowledge and experience that I’ve been so thrilled to accumulate through my diverse journey through music and production. As that journey continues and I continue to grow myself, I am truly thankful that I am lucky enough to help those around me to improve and follow their own passions for music!
