Logic Pro X 10.4 Update Explained® is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great! Smart tempo!! Smart Tempo can do so much and yet it is very complex. This video goes over the information quickly and concisely and I can learn a lot quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Got questions? This video has the answers!! Many questions that I've had about this particular update were addressed in this tutorial by Eli. For me it's a relief, because I had held off updating my macbook until late last year [as my laptop was an older model]. And, unfortunately, that meant not keeping up w the updates with everyone else. However, after viewing this video my grasp of this update has increased tremendously! Definitely worth the watch! And as always with Eli, there are cool tips and tricks that make you do a double take & rewind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Eli the Master Tutor! Eli Krantzburg can do no wrong in my estimation. I have done many tutorials with him and have always come away more knowledgeable and instructed. He knows the ins and outs of every enhancement with practical example since he is also a musician. This tutorial is really excellent.

Date published: 2018-08-08
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Helpful, but ... Eli, awesome and really helpful tutorials. The only thing that bothers me though is talking ("on.... off") when comparing sounds with let's say chromaverb enabled or disabled. I find there's no need to say on/off when pressing enabling or disabling a plugin. Plus, it would be nice if you'd let us listen to the different sounds at least for a few seconds (without talking, so one can focus on the sound instead of your voice) ;) Other than that, really helpful. I learned a lot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent Overview extremely efficient and concisely presented
Date published: 2018-02-22
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Essential!! If I have any kind of negative comment it would be that this upgrade from Logic is so vast that this course would be better if it were 10 hours rather than between 3 and 4 hours. That said, Eli, as always, does a superb job and is easy to understand, thorough and well versed on his subject. He is probably my favorite instructor for Groove3 and that is among some really great tutors. I am only giving it 5 stars and if it were more extended I would give it 7 or 8 stars out of five.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Good stuff. Helped me more than any other online tutorial on Logic Pro X. Eli's delivery is top notch. Clearly he knows his stuff. Generally easy to follow. I'm pretty much a beginner so some of the details are difficult for me to absorb. I'm sure more seasoned pros will have a better understanding of the vernacular used throughout. But I'm getting there and I honestly believe these tutorials have helped me further than others I've watched.
