Outstanding quality of education.
Every time I come back to Groove 3 I can astounded at both the level of knowledge and the thorough training and explanations in these units. Although I have been using Logic Pro for many years, every time I watch another video I am reminded of how little I know and how much these guys do! Highly recommended. Eli and Doug, thank you!

Totally Essential Training
If you're new to LPX, or you haven't worked much with the audio file editor, this is absolutely essential viewing. These videos cover all the information necessary to get you started with navigating audio files, working with transients, creating one-shots and loops, making backups, adjusting time and tempo, etc. The distinction between the audio file editor and the track editor isn't made completely clear -- and by distinction, I mean the tasks and workflows appropriate to each editor. But as far as audio file editing goes, this series has you covered, and if you're not already an expert then do yourself a favor and watch these videos. Just do it. No, don't put it off, just do it.
