Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Amazing For Beginners I just upgraded my laptop and got Logic-- and as a Songwriter who's getting into production, this was invaluable to me. I'm not gonna speak on behalf of more experienced producers, but this course is basically perfect for getting a feel for, and learning workflow tips, for people absolutely new to logic. Man was just amazing at explaining everything as clearly and concisely as possible, great at showing examples and encouraging the learner to do the same, etc.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from Moderately Helpful Eli K. has provided a large number of videos for Logic Pro including this one.. They are informative; however. they are less than helpful to someone who is new to Logic Pro. He moves very fast. He is very knowledgable but he does not appear to be attentive to the needs of the people who are using his videos. Also, he is very oriented towards people who are using Logic Pro for drumming and popular music with presets. This makes sense given the probable audience for his videos. For someone who is interested is using Logic Pro for recording their own music using microphones he is not very helpful. It would be good if Groove 3 provided some indication at the outset about whether the provider of Logic Pro videos is Eli or someone with another approach to using Logic Pro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Well done Quick guide to Logic X This is a well done Quick guide to Logic X. I'm impressed with how much was covered in concise vids. One of my pet peeves are vids that go on forever blabbing and not getting to the point. HE gets to the point, and goes over it at the end, makes course material available. Bravo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from My personal guru I have been using Logic Pro since version 9. I found some pretty good tutorials for Logic 9 on Lynda,com. But when I got into LPX I needed better. Eli and Groove 3 came through for me. I have listened to nearly every one of his tutorials and learned something every time. I didn't really think this would hold much for me since it is a starter, but I viewed it during lunch and wouldn't you know it! I got a couple of tips that will be fun to explore. Thanks again Eli. I feel like I have hired you to personally tutor me. Here is a tip for other students like me. Get the yearly all access pass if you enjoy learning. It is my Christmas present to myself every year and one of the best gifts ever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from No fluff! The presenter is very clear, and the pacing is great. Although I’m an advanced user, I picked up quite a few new items, or alternate ways of doing things. This short series is truly a jump start.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from A Good Refresher I've been using Logic Pro for quite a well. This series was a good refresher to learn a couple tips I'd probably forgotten about. I'll probably go back and watch some of the more advanced series on Logic Pro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Quick & Easy Great re-caps at the end of each video to remind you of the key points and a bit less time consuming than the full Logic Pro Explained videos. Another great offering from Groove3!
