Solid Product Overview

I would say this is more of a product tour than a tutorial. However, there were quite a few good tips and tricks mentioned and the fact I use Studio One it was also beneficial.

A rare miss for Groove 3

I'm not sure who this tutorial is aimed at. It feels like one of those quick 10-minute product overviews stretched to over an hour. The synopsis promises that you will "[d]iscover how it can be used creatively for your next production and make it more alive and intense!". There is absolutely none of that here, and none of the practical, best-practice usefulness I've come to expect from Groove 3. Anyone with any level of experience will quickly grow impatient, as the speaker fumbles through the different areas of the interface, dialing in nonsense values, banging the keys aimlessly and glossing over anything that might be interesting. There's nothing here for anyone who's used virtual instruments before, and the whole thing feels improvised and uncertain. For beginners - who I assume this is aimed at - there's no attempt made to show how the product can or should be used in practice. The presenter layers together three big, boomy unrelated patches, and leaves all the MIDI receives to omni. Yes, you can layer your patches like this, but it leaves you with absolutely no control over your arrangement. Why not show even one example of it being used in a useful way? If anything, a beginner taking this at face value will be learning some poor methods. A disappointing, rare miss for Groove 3, made worse by my love for the product being shown.

Luke Oswald Professional Drummer and Instructor

1. When did you start dabbling in music?
I've always had an interest in drumming from a young age and started playing in 6th grade when a family friend stored their drum set at my parents house for a summer. I started playing in church the next fall and have been playing ever since. No one had to tell me to practice, it was just something I loved to do. I just enjoyed everything that had to do with drumming.

2. What training have you had?
I studied piano at a young age, then played trumpet from elementary through middle school. I started drumming on my own at the age of 12, then switched to drumming as my main instrument in high school and went on to study in college along with Music Business. I've been teaching drums since college, both private instruction and drum clinics.

3. When did you get into recording?
When I was in middle school/high school, I was very interested in music technology. It was much different then, but I remember recording/sequencing song arrangements with music software and filming videos and editing in camera all the time. In and after college, I started learning about audio production when I was recording drums for the bands I was in.  In the late 2000's I stumbled upon drum sample technology, and that changed everything for me. I started really digging into the study of audio production, recording, mixing and mastering. I started studying video production around the same time as I knew I wanted to eventually film high quality drum videos while using this sample technology.

4. People you have worked with/for?
During my time in Nashville, I studied drums with Derico Watson (Victor Wooten), Jeff Bowders (Paul Gilbert), Will Denton (Steven Curtis Chapman, LeAnn Rimes), Marcus Finnie (Kirk Whalum, India Arie) and Raymond Massey (Pearl Drums). I've recorded drums on multiple albums produced by Sadson Music Group and have played on albums with artists such as George Clinton and Samantha Ware.

5. Why are you so good at training people?
To me, teaching is as inspiring as performing. When you teach, you're forced to understand the topic at a much deeper level.  I love the process of learning and improving, and to me teaching is just an extension of that process. I learn something new every time I teach anything, whether it be a drum lesson or a software tutorial. I also believe as artists we have a responsibility to pass on the knowledge that we've accumulated. You must take action and apply what you've learned to your own life, but that only goes so far.  If you can take what you've learned and share it with someone else, you're giving them the opportunity to take that knowledge, nurture it and allow it to influence their own lives. Eventually, they can pass that knowledge on to someone else, and the process keeps going. You never know the impact you can have on someone simply by sharing with them what you've learned.
