MYSTERIA Explained® is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 3 .
Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from Can't imagine any musical use for this Larry Holcombe pretty well convinced me to not spend any money on yet another noise source. He managed to spend more than an hour without making more than a minute of musical sound. There seemed to be a point in his explanation of clusters that perhaps he could have actually created a choir sound in harmony, but he never did. I have no use for yet another way to generate noise. Thanks Larry, you saved me money. However, that said, the quality of the video is, as Groove3 videos always are, excellent. I use Groove3 annual membership to help me know how to determine the direction my budget for software will go, thus saving me thousands of dollars in product I won't use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Operating the Plugin Explained Concise and well structured, explains the operation, rather than an overview of sounds and effects . That was exactly what I needed.
