boring

simple things have too details, diffcult (and specific) things are quickly passed, examples are not interesting

Response from Customer Service:

Hello,
Our Explained tutorials are entry level and go over the basics from the ground up. All lessons and examples are kept simple to get the new user up to speed. I am happy to add a request for an advanced title to go deeper into the software.
I also see you have a low rating for ease of use and quality. Contact support if you find the quality of the audio or video low as it may be a browser issue and I can help you optimize your set up.

Useful and comprehensive, easy to follow.

I'm coming from Ableton Live (I have the Europa VST too) and picking up Reason and this course is perfect for me for both DAWs. I like Thomas's voice and his calm and thorough delivery. Some videos I've watched twice, several more than that, there's a lot of good stuff here. I have his Reason Grain tutorial, which is just as good..... please make more Reason videos.

Thomas Cochran electronic musician and multi instrumentalist from Austin Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles. He focuses on creating electronic music that features both ambient and classical influences.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing music at a young age, starting with classical guitar. This started my love for music and eventually expanded into learning other instruments as well. To date, I have had over ten years of classical experience and training as well as additional instrumental experience.

2. What training have you had?

I grew up studying classical guitar and composition and eventually started applying my classical knowledge to learning other instruments as well, ranging from violin, cello, keys, and drums.

3. When did you get intro recording?

I got into recording out of necessity when me and some friends started a band back in high school and couldn't afford studio time. Through this, I learned about music production and recording and haven't looked back since.

4. Why are you so good at training people?

I love learning about the technical aspects of music production, this helps me understand the how music production works under the hood. I have also worked for several years creating music production tutorials online.
