You really do get what you pay for..

Wow. I feel like an idiot for wasting so much time on YouTube trying to watch a weird hodge podge of different people (poorly) explaining Studio One 5. I just recently started making music again a few months ago, basically I had to build a new setup from the ground up. So when I purchased my new desktop PC, I was jumping from Windows 8 to Windows 10. I won't bore you with the details, but basically FL Studio 20 was beginning to cause me way more headaches than it was worth. For whatever reason it just does not work well on my Windows 10 setup, I could no longer justify not switching to a new DAW. I tried out everything from Reaper, Bitwig, LMMS, Ableton Live LITE, Cakewalk.. None of them even came to close to Studio One. I decided that was the DAW I was going to move forward with and be done with it so I could finally get back making music again. ..But then I started running into issues where things weren't making sense and I had a list of little things that I just really didn't understand. I would go on YouTube to try and find answers. Usually this just made things way more confusing because the people making videos are usually not people worth taking advice from. It became blatantly obvious that I was wasting time again, so this time I went to Reddit looking for answers. Someone recommended Groove3. Thank god. Finally a solution. I have learned more about Studio One in 3 days than I had in the entire 2 weeks I was trying to figure it out on my own. Eli is an amazing teacher. He takes the time to explain everything he is doing without slowing the pace to a crawl. The order that he teaches everything in is perfect. When he introduces a new topic, he's using concepts from topics he recently covered and he builds on them further. Again - I can not tell you how much I wish I would have not wasted all that time getting bad advice on YouTube. Within the first minute or two, you'll see why Eli teaches this course. He thoroughly understands every aspect of it and he's able to share his knowledge in a very clear and concise way. He is plainspoken and eloquent. I was seriously on the verge of going back to FL, learning another DAW was a lot more difficult than I imagined it would be. Now I'm 100% sure I made the right choice switching to Studio One 5 from FL Studio 20. Thank you Eli!

Best Studio One learning tool in all of Groove3

Covers all the program in great depth with excellent clarity. Some segments move too fast for a beginner to absorb on first listening; best to listen through once and then repeat, pausing whenever necessary to take notes for future reference. Highly recommend for new or experienced Studio One users alike.

Very Helpful and Interesting

The main focus for me is the quick delivery, easily understood presentation. When I was not familiar with S1, Eli's style enabled me to easily go back and forth between video and actual program to solidify the lesson(s) ...that's what they are ...lessons ...in a palatable, real world fashion. I'm a busy, one man production studio ...these video sessions are just right for me

Narrator is sonically fatiguing

Obviously very insightful and chock full of info. But in the future it may befit you [Groove3] to choose a different author or narrator. Eli has a rather prominent lisp or something of the sort that is almost immediately fatiguing to the ear and overall just tough to listen to.

So happy that I watched this...

This tutorial was fantastic. I had used version 4 by teaching myself and decided to REALLY learn the features when I upgraded to 5. I learned about so many features that I never knew existed! And Eli does a great job of explaining everything and showing you how you would use it in a real world situation. Highly recommended if you never took the time to learn it before.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from You really do get what you pay for.. Wow. I feel like an idiot for wasting so much time on YouTube trying to watch a weird hodge podge of different people (poorly) explaining Studio One 5. I just recently started making music again a few months ago, basically I had to build a new setup from the ground up. So when I purchased my new desktop PC, I was jumping from Windows 8 to Windows 10. I won't bore you with the details, but basically FL Studio 20 was beginning to cause me way more headaches than it was worth. For whatever reason it just does not work well on my Windows 10 setup, I could no longer justify not switching to a new DAW. I tried out everything from Reaper, Bitwig, LMMS, Ableton Live LITE, Cakewalk.. None of them even came to close to Studio One. I decided that was the DAW I was going to move forward with and be done with it so I could finally get back making music again. ..But then I started running into issues where things weren't making sense and I had a list of little things that I just really didn't understand. I would go on YouTube to try and find answers. Usually this just made things way more confusing because the people making videos are usually not people worth taking advice from. It became blatantly obvious that I was wasting time again, so this time I went to Reddit looking for answers. Someone recommended Groove3. Thank god. Finally a solution. I have learned more about Studio One in 3 days than I had in the entire 2 weeks I was trying to figure it out on my own. Eli is an amazing teacher. He takes the time to explain everything he is doing without slowing the pace to a crawl. The order that he teaches everything in is perfect. When he introduces a new topic, he's using concepts from topics he recently covered and he builds on them further. Again - I can not tell you how much I wish I would have not wasted all that time getting bad advice on YouTube. Within the first minute or two, you'll see why Eli teaches this course. He thoroughly understands every aspect of it and he's able to share his knowledge in a very clear and concise way. He is plainspoken and eloquent. I was seriously on the verge of going back to FL, learning another DAW was a lot more difficult than I imagined it would be. Now I'm 100% sure I made the right choice switching to Studio One 5 from FL Studio 20. Thank you Eli!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Best Studio One learning tool in all of Groove3 Covers all the program in great depth with excellent clarity. Some segments move too fast for a beginner to absorb on first listening; best to listen through once and then repeat, pausing whenever necessary to take notes for future reference. Highly recommend for new or experienced Studio One users alike.
Date published: 2020-09-01
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very Helpful and Interesting The main focus for me is the quick delivery, easily understood presentation. When I was not familiar with S1, Eli's style enabled me to easily go back and forth between video and actual program to solidify the lesson(s) ...that's what they are ...lessons ...in a palatable, real world fashion. I'm a busy, one man production studio ...these video sessions are just right for me

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Narrator is sonically fatiguing Obviously very insightful and chock full of info. But in the future it may befit you [Groove3] to choose a different author or narrator. Eli has a rather prominent lisp or something of the sort that is almost immediately fatiguing to the ear and overall just tough to listen to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from So happy that I watched this... This tutorial was fantastic. I had used version 4 by teaching myself and decided to REALLY learn the features when I upgraded to 5. I learned about so many features that I never knew existed! And Eli does a great job of explaining everything and showing you how you would use it in a real world situation. Highly recommended if you never took the time to learn it before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from I'm taking off my hut! Very simple, easy and straight to the point explanations with examples, ideas, real-life situations etc. Excellent! Adding this to my favourites with a goal to jump back when I need to use some of the features which I'm not using equate often.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from All The only thing missing for me is subtitles. My first langage is French and at least subtitles in English would be very helpful. But, I love all the videos!
Date published: 2020-07-13
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Concise and informative! Eli is always very thorough and shows by example how to perform functions. I have lots of his Groove3 videos and they are all great and helpful. My only complaint in general is there is not enough explaining of preferences, and why or why not you would select one preference setting over another. But this is true with ALL my videos, even from other companies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great except for me - my English is not much Captions would help me, but I watch a lot on what's going on on the screen. It helps me a lot that something always happens and I understand what it's all about. I don't like very talkative videos where nothing happens on the screen.

Date published: 2020-07-10
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Clear, Concise, Comprehensive! What a superb set of videos!! So clear, yet so much detail. Eli has that rare ability to convey the fundamentals, yet also ensure that the benefit of his considerable experience with Studio One shows through. This is yet another five-star review from me for Groove 3 and is fully deserving. Fantastic!
