Wow Golden Nugets

Really you laid out so much in this tutorial. Literally tons of golden nuggets. What I liked about it is that you threw out some important points (without) going into detail this way I was able to make notes as you eloquently show us the procedure of making a song from beginning to end. (not making it complicated). I was able to outline it as you were moving along. Now I am able to look at the outline and study it in detail and stop to learn exactly what you pointed out through research and searching tutorials on that subject and part. This is the first FL Studio video tutorial I have ever really understood. You actually maid my membership worth every penny paid. Bottom line you kept it understandable and kept my attention. Amen Thank you Sir for your time and expertise..... Dave

Great hands-on video tutorial!

Tyler builds a nice song from scratch using only FL Studio stock plugins. He has an excellent pace and I am learning a lot from his workflow - the shortcuts he's using to keep the track organized and tidy is excellent. Great video, great teacher, thank you!

Awesome way to start compleating ideas.

The tutorial is really good and helpful. Although I only have 1 complain. And that is that after the chapter 5 and over he starts going too fast, and not explaining so much in detail as he does in the first chapters. Other than that I'm really happy with the workflow and content of the tutorial.
