Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT COURSE! Eli has a knack for delivering information in a rapid-fire, no-nonsense fashion that has me rewinding constantly - but only because he drops so many little tips, tricks, and gems so quickly that I have to absorb them. He is always professional, courteous, and very competent. I'm a trainer myself, and I know quality teaching when I see it. This is the best it gets folks.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Very good! I am a Music creator for short films (genre Scifi) wth 10+ years of experience. I used to make music mostly with original instruments because DAWs were overwhelming for me. This course helped me to understand Logic pro X. Otherwise I bought Logic 2 years before but failed to use it properly!

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from 10.4 and 10.4.1 are different visually Not the videos fault, but 4.1 visually is different and things have changed, so as a new user it is a little harder to follow. Unless there is a "layout" that the instructor is using that he configured. If so, it would be easier to follow if the visual layout was the same.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Good Transition from GarageBand Eli presents just the beginning introduction to Logic Pro X. I felt comfortable that I could make the transition from GarageBand since he touch on most of the features that are also available in Logic Pro X. I look forward to investigating more advanced videos with Eli.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Eli breaks it down! True expert instruction from Mr. K! Definitely a great "jump start' to get up and running with Logic Pro. This is better than the manual which can be a very dry read. This set of videos along with all of the other great videos Eli has on Groove3 makes learning Logic easy and fun. Learning Logic Pro with Eli has made him a friend of mine, no doubt. ;)

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great to start with It is what it is called! You get a quick start in Logic Pro X - my bandmate always asked me to explain what I do but I'm not good in explaining / teaching, so I presented "Logic Pro X Jump Start" to him and he really got into it

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised; quick review of Logic Pro X Not really for users who are familiar with Logic Pro X and have expertise on Pro 9, but a good primer for someone who is not familiar with Logic DAW. Watched it to make sure I had not missed anything, but will go straight to the Advanced videos
