Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Yet again! Some people just have a gift for teaching. Eli is one of them. At this point, I can hardly even count the number of video series he has released that I have watched. Eli's approach is expository. With precise language and clear examples, he demonstrates the main functions and features of a piece of software or hardware. His method is such that he is not slanting his presentation toward a specific genre or style. He leaves the music-making to us. That is especially true with Logic. Eli is Mr. Logic. I've been through this series twice already. I learned more in Round Two and probably will view individual modules again. If you want to discover the power of Logic and unlock its many wonders and secrets this series is for you!

Date published: 2020-08-20
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent tutorials Eli Krantzberg really makes some of the best tutorials I've seen. His explainations are always very well structured, introducing complex features one step at a time in a very clear way, even for such deep apps like Logic. One criticism I have for Groove3 however is that they should really upgrade the resolution of the videos to 1080. They seem mostly at 720, which makes them blurry for software filled with tiny User Interface details such as LogicX
Date published: 2020-07-17
Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Not for my genre. It was not what I was looking for. I play live and don't go much for the loops and stuff so this was not very helpful to me due to the subjects and as an update by logic. However the video was well-done and explained as usual by Eli.
Date published: 2020-07-13
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Exceptional review of the new Logic Pro X 10.5 update Eli has done it again with his excellent carefully thought out explanations of Logic Pro X new features, especially from a producer, creator, songwriter perspective. Ease of use is excellent, been a continuous Groove3 customer for several years. Groove 3 training videos are a must have for producers from back-in-the-day (early 80's forward) trying to stay abreast of the new technology creative tools.

Date published: 2020-05-24
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from A surprisingly deep dive! This is a really solid walkthrough of everything new. Unlike tutorials from other developers Eli dives A LOT deeper than I expected. He really does cover all the bases, and shows you the many many options available in each new feature. The section on both new samplers alone was worth the price of admission, not to mention the wealth of information about Live Loops, the Step Sequencer, etc..

Date published: 2020-05-17
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great, as usual from Eli! I'm just so excited about the 10.5 upgrade and Eli makes it even more exciting by showing you the new stuff (as opposed to the fixes). BTW- for what it is worth, I cannot download LPX10.5 yet for some reason. I have all the pre-reqs (Catalina 10.15 on an iMac). Eli's videos are just great to dig into the details and I can't wait to try the new features! Thanks Eli!
Date published: 2020-05-17
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Eli does it again! Logic is my favorite program and Eli is my favorite instructor - so when this dropped I was already excited; but then to see it's 5.5 hours of content! On a .5 release! Eli is the best instructor I have ever watched - he explains things in a thorough and detailed, yet easy-to-understand way. I always look forward to watching his courses. I think it's safe to say that the money I spend every year on the All Access Pass is pretty much on account of his courses.
Date published: 2020-05-15
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Essential viewing for Logic power-users This course would be worth the asking price if it was just focused on the sequencer. Hugely in-depth and comprehensive (Don't waste your time with YouTubers). Eli has knocked it out the park - again.
Date published: 2020-05-15
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Really useful. Thanks, really useful videos. Cover all the great new features in length. And logic is an awesome product now.
Date published: 2020-05-15
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from You cant get this anywhere else. The same day 10.5 is released Groove3 has 5 hours of great content to study. You can't get this on YouTube!
Date published: 2020-05-13
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Eli is the best. At this point, I watch the videos more because I enjoy Eli's style of teaching vs. the content. So many hours of content just for one (albeit) massive logic update. Thanks Eli!
