Too fast - makes little sense

The speaker goes way too fast. He's just messing around with one note. There's no explanation of how things are loaded up. I'm a musician, not a sound technician, so the subtle differences in sound went way over my head. Maybe this aspect of the course is not for me, but other courses have explained things I thought I wasn't interested in very clearly, so sadly, I think it's the speaker.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thanks for leaving a review.
It looks like you were only able to watch the first couple of videos. As the tutorial progresses, different synths are used to create waveforms so you can see the various techniques used. And at the end he uses the sounds made to compose a demo song and you can see the entire process from beginning to end.
I believe when you finish the tutorial everything will make a lot more sense and you can start creating sounds of your own!

I started playing around with music at a young age with garage sale keyboards or whatever else I could get my hands on. My older brothers were very much into bands and guitars, and so I was always around some of the culture. I played alto sax throughout school in the concert, marching, and jazz bands. Browsing through our home computer in middle school, I started playing with music trackers and sequencers that my brothers had installed. From there I found FL Studio, which the demo version we had at that time was still called FruityLoops. It proved to be an excellent passtime for a kid like myself where I could mess around and make some silly little tunes. Through high school and college, I became very well versed in the world of computer audio and all the things that can be done with synthesizers and digital recording. With the growing understanding came a growing excitement for the endless possibilities that I could achieve in music, sound design, and recording. So I kept learning and searching further, where I kept finding that there was always more to learn! 
 
I was, and continue to be, captivated by every step of music production, be it creative or technical in nature. I’ve been fortunate to work under many kinds of production circumstances, whether in a professional studio space such as Mudcat Studios in Utah or getting a professional sound out of various home studios that I’ve used for recording instruments and live bands. I’ve also been able to work on my fair share of electronic music, either solo or with other producers in person or online for collaborations. And now with Groove3, I take great pride in sharing the knowledge and experience that I’ve been so thrilled to accumulate through my diverse journey through music and production. As that journey continues and I continue to grow myself, I am truly thankful that I am lucky enough to help those around me to improve and follow their own passions for music!
