Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Interesting and Useful Always great to see how someone else does things. I can see similar stuff and also the the same thing achieved in different ways to how I do it.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from I found itI found how interesting at the approach the pros can turn a passable mix though into an open dynamic mix. Very well done. My only criticism of Groove 3 tutorial versus some competitors is Two-Fold 1. Quality of “Video Resolution”. Should be at least 1080P 2. No “Stems” to apply what the tutors are teaching to see if you are getting near the projection of the mix that the tutors want you the listener or student want achieve. This of course would only apply in Audio Engineering Tutorials. I feel if Groove 3 were to address these issues I would imagine that Groove 3 would see a rise in subscription and downloads

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mix Process I watched two of these videos and get a sense that these guys have an effective and systematic way to approaching all areas of mixing that should lead to professional results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Nice improvement of the song. The idea of making comparison on how Bob and Erik thought their way of mixing step by step is just great! I wish I had some courses like that when I was in school.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Honesty from Pros Really loved this - the presentation - the objectivity - the subtle touches and tips that demonstrated the tough process of mixing - with no "I'm a mixing genius" bloviation. Everything here is at a somewhat advanced level - so beginners might want to get to know their plugins a bit better before diving in - but on second thought, this might get you to read the manuals too (something these guys have clearly done). Thank you guys for a great video!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Unbelievably helpful I feel like all mixing tutorials should be like this! These guys are great at getting across the kind of things that people struggling with their mixes need to know. For example, just five minutes of Bob talking about master bus compression settings clarified so much in my head. Excellent tutorial format and a wealth of great information in these videos.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Well Done! Good tips and points of view on the approach for a good tight mix. Cheers

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from This was soooo helpful Bob and Erik explained things well. It was great to hear Bob break down the issues he heard in the mix and the quick A/B comparison was a game changer. I would love to see bob do this with some female R&B vocals!
Date published: 2017-11-27
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great for perspective It is so easy to backslide when mixing alone. Thes is a great reference for how bright is too bright, the difference between round and muddy. Things like that. These folks do this every day, and seem to have their ears well calibrated. Can't wait to go home and pull some of my mixes more into the pocket. Also, nice tune Goldberg!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from One of the best out there! First, these guys are proven professionals with credits a mile long. You get to sit and learn from the best of the best. The information is gold here. Not only are you seeing and hearing the choices made, they stop explain Why! That is the most important question. They go through their thought processes to help you understand the reason each step was implemented. This is rarely heard in tutorial land on the internet. The video is crisp and the audio is pristine. This is one of the most intelligent tutorial I've watched to date. I hope there are more to come. Thanks, Bob, Erik and the Groove3 team.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from very nice and surprising very nice and surprising. one of the most interesting mix through processing I have watched. I related a lot to the mistakes (amateur mix vs pro mix), and could learn a bunch. pretty funny reaction when u listen and notice "oh, I do that every time". pretty awesome value. Also very surprising to see how much limiting and compression went for the song. hope this product (mix review) gets at least two videos per month. lots of people will relate, I think.
