Invaluable! Great series.
As an owner, these videos have been hugely helpful. I had the keyboard for years and some functions need clearer explanation the manuals don't cover well. Highly recommended, especially if you own an SLMKII.

Following Novation's instructions on the 61 SL was very confusing. Consequently, I just used the keyboard to trigger midi in my daw. After doing this course, I'm sure I. Will be able to get the most from this instrument. Full marks for a clear explanation of how to make the most of this controller/keyboard!

I can now use my Novation SLII :-)
Each tutorial is short and to the point. Working through these video tutorials enabled me to use my Novation with Logic Pro X which is exactly what I was hoping for.
