Worth watching to get practical and creative uses from an experienced pro.
Kenny is one of the best teachers! He goes deep and shows the potential of protools as a creative production tool. His examples are real world productions that are current. He also goes in depth explaining how to organically create certain effects that many will just "slap on a plug in". We felt we learned very much from class. Kenny makes learning fun and easy which is how it should be:)
