Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Concise overview of major functions. If you hate plowing straight into a huge, overwhelming manual then this is a great introductory course on the features of the Code series of M-Audio midi keyboard controllers whether you have the 25, 49 or 61 key versions. Very helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from Doesn't cover everything! This is only part of a tutorial, he doesn't cover saving presets, he doesn't cover using the transpose in action, he doesn't cover how to trigger loops with the pads. Bunch of stuff he doesn't cover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from In-depth and to the point I was gifted a Code 61, and didn't realize the true potential of this MIDI controller until I watched this. The course truly helped me get into the details and make my productions a lot easier. Thanks!
