Learn exactly what MIDI plug-ins are and how they are different from audio plug-ins.
Explore the Note Repeater plug-in and see how it is used to generate repeating MIDI notes; either mimicking an audio delay unit, or selectively including or excluding specific ranges of notes.
Modulator Plug-In LFO Section8:02
See how LFOs, repeating cyclical patterns, are used to modulate target parameters in the Modulator plug-in.
Modulator Plug-In Envelope Section6:39
Explore how a four point envelope can be used to modulate destination parameters over time.
Envelopes & LFOs Together0:00
Explore some of the possibilities when combining these two modulation sources, and see how they interact together.
See how this plug-in is used to transform MIDI message values into random values. Intensity, range, and weighting controls are used to limit the results of the generated values.
Watch how this plug-in is used to have incoming notes conform to a specific, or user defined, root key signature and scale type.
Create Custom Patterns5:56
Watch as the Note Repeater, Randomizer, Transposer, and Modulator plug-ins are used in series, together with some automation, to build custom arpeggiated patterns designed to fit a unique chord progression.
Explore the various modes this plug-in offers. It is used to compress, expand, limit, fix, scale, add to, or subtract from, incoming note velocities.
See how this plug-in is used to reassign a specific MIDI event type and optionally scale, add to, or subtract from the converted values.
Explore the Single and Multi modes of this this plug-in, and how they are programmed and used to trigger chords by playing a single MIDI key.

Arpeggiator: Pattern Parameters6:34
Discover how custom patterns are created, modified, and saved, in either live or grid mode.
Arpeggiator: Advanced Parameters8:43
Explore the global playback controls that affect note length, velocity, and swing; and learn to split the keyboard and remote control the arpeggiator functions either from a dedicated note range or with other MIDI messages generated from your controller.

I can't come up with real negative points for this tutorial series so that means this is a good series. The explanations are clear. Furthermore, some practical examples are given which I find very important in a tutorial series. Especially in this type of series, which could otherwise be very dry. So I can recommend this product for anyone wanting to know how to work with these midi plug ins.
