Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great Video-Helped Me Out A lot. This video was really helpful. I had this vst for a while and I wasn't using it because I didn't know how. It was explained in a way that I could understand with a lot of examples that I could easily follow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Good overview A good overview of Analog Strings. I like the fast pace that Eli does in all of his videos. No need to tell us what he's going to talk about, he just gets right into talking about it. The flux section was the most interesting for me.

Rated 0.5 out of 5 by from Rushed review making the instrument sound bad. I've come to regret Eli being the presenter in these videos when I used to think of him as my favorite. Rush rush rush, don't blink or you'll miss three entire points of consideration. From the brief trailer of this product I was lead to believe it sounds amazing. From this video I find that I don't like how it sounds at all. I was very interested to see what the acoustic symphonic string presets sounded like. We really get zero presentation of how any preset sounds like outside the rush to show feature and parameter adjustment. If ever there was a video presentation on Groove3 that pushed me away from considering buying a product it is this one right here. It sounds like crap and here's some various ways to mess with it's awful sound.
