Pretty good, important parts rushed
This was a pretty good breakdown, but the meaty parts, the most important pieces seemed really rushed, while the basic stuff had a lot of time spent on it. I found that a bit strange. More practical example uses of this software, such as isolating and removing drums from a sampled record might have been way more useful.
Response from Customer Service:
Yes, this is a breakdown of the basic features and functions. I will add a request for more detailed/advanced examples to our customer request list.
Glad you like it!

A great forensic tool for selecting voices
I am a forensic audio analyst. I was considering buying this software.. Watching this tutorial has allowed me to understand why this software will be a useful tool for the specialized work I do. You can not enhance or clarify voices and sounds until you can select and separate the desired audio from the background noise. Spectral Layers is a powerful selection tool and the layers allow you to separate the desired audio content. This tutorial is very well made and explains the features of the software. Very good pace for learning. The narrators straight forward approach was clear and not distracting from the technical material. This tutorial was not a sales pitch.
