Very Informative

This video training cut my session time tremendously. I now know how to set up folders for the sounds I use almost on every session. I now know the short cuts that will speed up my editing process. I would have eventually learned them but this course really spells thing out for you. I am now making my own manual with tips and tricks just in case I forget some of them. AWESOME course.

I love all of Chris's tutorials and this one did not disappoint. Honestly, I wish there were more tutorials like this one that goes into different workflow concepts that might have not been discussed before. Love Chris's 'out of the box' thinking and general approach. Keep 'em coming!

Good but nothing new

Enjoyed the tutorial, however, most of these ideas are discussed in other Logic tutorials, Logic Operator, etc. The tip of working sound design in separate projects is a good one. Also, the note-taking ideas were interesting. Overall some good encouragement to work more efficiently.

Eh

This is the first time I've watched a Groove3 video series and thought, "Eh." To be honest, I didn't finish it all, and I'm probably not the target audience for this series, which seems to be people very new to Logic Pro X and fairly new to macOS. I feel like these videos are about 10 minutes worth of content crammed into 1 1/2 hours of video that feels like 3 hours of viewing, not least because the presenter seems very much to want to impress you with his work and workflows. The first three videos are devoted to taking screenshots and using Pages to take notes while you watch online tutorials. Three videos for this, complete with multiple quick-view examples of his own notes. Riveting. He does run through how to take a screenshot on macOS, and if you're new to macOS, then hey: screenshots. He also talks about other things, like the importance of backing up and organizing files., channel-strip presets, plug-in organization, etc. There are straightforward tips here. They're not bad, but they're not shockingly insightful, and they all take too much time to cover. I stopped scanning through these at the key commands section, where the first video spends a full 60 seconds with a music-fueled rip-through of a demonstration of the presenter's speed with key commands. It's not clear what's happening -- it's just a lot of changes and adjustments on screen. Then begins a discussion of key commands using non-standard key sequences. The advice to customize them for yourself isn't bad, but weirdly, it's probably not right for this level of audience, either. Like, if you are just learning how to take a screenshot, then maybe starting to customize your workflow through personalized key commands, which partly depend upon your understanding of how you work with Logic, is a little premature? Maybe not. I don't know. Also, I don't care. Writing this review was more fun than watching the videos. Oh, and here's a tip for the presenter, who consistently refers to "a lot of guys" who are producing music. I'm not big on identity politics, but this is the twenty-first century, and both men and women are producing music. Not recommended.

Response from Customer Service:

Hello and thank you for leaving us a review. We appreciate you taking the time.
You are correct that this tutorial has the beginner in mind so if you feel that you are past the beginner stage, this may seem more like a review and rehashing of concepts you may already know. We do have other, more advance Logic tutorials that we hope you check out.
These videos build on each other so each one feeds the next. I feel if you ever get a chance to finish watching them you will get more out of it and possibly learn something new, even for an advanced user!

Huge time saver for workflow !!!

Very Helpful Tutorial for the Logic X user, that wants to save time. Chris keeps things short and to the point. I really liked the key commands suggestion- the only problem I found is that sometimes doing select all command +A and then zoom to fit (to ultimately zoom way out) I would get an error message saying "Commands not available because there are regions selected on a drum track". Not sure why- maybe its something in my session that is creating the hang up. Overall a bunch of quick little tips that can save a lot of time.
