FLESH Explained® is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 5 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent course! Now I'm ready to read the interesting parts of the manual, try things out, review parts of the course, try things out, rinse, repeat... Docked a star from 'ease of access' since the drop-down banner obscures top part of video for 6 or 7 seconds every time the mouse moves over video. When bouncing back and forth between video control and trying things out in Reaktor, this enforced drop-down delay slows down the learning process... hiding relevant info unnecessarily with each start and stop.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful, more! Example of what might be added: how it integrates with Komplete Kontrol and KK keyboards from NI, especially how the mapping is implemented.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Fleshy Fun! This video is a MUST see if you want to have a clue about how to use FLESH by Tim Exile. I LOVE this SW, but until I watched this video I hadn't even touched what it can do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Good video For the beginner or active user of Flesh, this is a good overview of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Concise yet informative This set of videos provides a crisp introduction to all the pages, sub-pages, and controls in Flesh. That is a necessary foundation for fully exploring the instrument. Really knowing what it will do will still take time and experimentation, especially since the controls work to modify each selected sound. Because we can import our own sounds as well as use those that came with the product, the possibilities are essentially endless.
