Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Helpful start to a tricky effect Eli Krantzberg always does a great job with all of his tutorials, including this one. I think Portal is unusually challenging because it's so different from the effects we normally use. It seems like Portal can produce really unique and musical effects but getting there takes more effort than say, a regular delay or distortion effect. One comment on Groove3 videos in general. The "Explained" videos are a great starting point but ideally they'll be paired with a follow-up series. How about starting an "Applied" series to go along with your "Explained" videos? So "Explained" introduces the basic idea of each product, then "Applied" shows you how the product might be used in various situations? You basically already do this with some products but I'd like to see a lot more follow-up video series paired with "Explained" videos.
