Not really helpfull

I think I'll have to read the manuals as this tutorial is not going really deep. But it can be a good first impression of the plugins for people who don't like reading.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
You are correct that this is an entry level tutorial that will show you the basics of the plug-ins and get you going. You can certainly use this to understand what you are working with.
I see you left low ratings for Ease of use of the tutorial and Access to the videos. Part of your issue may be a browser that simply needs to be optimized for better playback. If you would like to email support@groove3.com we can help you optimize your browser and make playback of the videos (and other sites) better.

Concise and Very Useful

I like this gent. He's very clear and covers a lot of stuff pretty quickly and painlessly. Only thing I can think of to suggest is I would have liked a bit more content: more complete coverage of the features - some were omitted entirely - more overview of the products at the beginning and a bit more demonstration of the s/w doing it's thing. Still, very well done.

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.
