ALMOST Excellent

I will say this series is WAAY more helpful, insightful and organized than anything I've gone through on YouTube, but I do feel that there is a lot more going on with this controller that just kind of gets glazed or skipped over in this series. There were a few features where he just kind of says, 'this is button does this, see?' but doesn't explain HOW or WHY it does it or when you might practically use it. Kind of the old, give a man a fish or teach a man to fish proverb. This series throws you a lot of fish, but in many ways fails to TEACH you how to fish. It's a bit short in length compared to many tutorials on Groove3 so perhaps with a little more time, it could have gone into more depth on each element of the controller, like WHY it's included and when you might actually use it to create, as opposed to just telling you WHAT it does. All in all, this is still the best explanation of the NV I've seen, but having spent some time with this controller myself previously, I know there is much more that can be said/shown in regards to what it can do. But for a 38 min series, it serves as a great intro to what you can do with this controller and I definitely learned some new and exciting things about it. Also a solid performance example at the end that ties it all together fairly well. Would love to see more from this, but all in all, 4 out of 5!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

The earliest I remember was at 12 years old. My older brother brought home an electric guitar and I was mesmerized to actually put my hands on one for the first time. From there its history. I basically spend all my teen years learning songs, playing in bands, figuring out how to sequence on workstations and eventually pursued an education in Music Technology.

2. What training have you had?

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Technology from Cal State San Bernardino in 2005, as well as numerous certifications from Avid Pro Tools and Media Composer while at Avid (2005-2012)

3. When did you get into recording?

When I was around 15, I was playing guitar in my older brother’s band the bass player, June, went back to Japan. June left his Yamaha SY-77 workstation in my care and I figured out how to multitrack and sequence as well as sound design and program all without a manual. What’s funny is that I had no idea what Quantization was, so I created these very long 96 bar sequences laying down one instrument at a time. Hey at least my timing improved ;-)

4. People you have worked with/for?

All through college I was recording and producing for various hip hop rappers and singers, as well as my own Reggaeton project called “Gran Impacto” back in 2003. But my career in mixing really took on a whole other dimension when I started making YouTube videos and had artists send me sessions from all over the world. Amongst the artists I’ve worked with include Gilligan Gadsby, Reggae Foundation, Skiptooth, Skeletones, Debonaires, Chica Ize, to name a few.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Honestly, I’ve been shy all my life. But taking the courage to increase my confidence one step at a time, I’m able to teach people what I’m passionate about. With Digidesign I was a Pro Tools Product Specialist, and Digi had a very high standard on delivering world-class presentations. I knew I had some big shoes to fill, but through my personal journey I was able to hone in on presenting and teaching, especially to an online audience. And even though I’d say I have 10 years under my belt, I’m always looking to reinvent my self and not be stagnant or complacent.
