Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent! This covered pretty much every nuance of the instrument, but in a clear and concise manner where I never felt like it dragged. Looking forward to watching more Output tutorials.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Clear, Concise and Inspires One To Use The Plugin Eli's video helped simplify what can be a bit of complex plugin. Yeah, you can sit and read a manual, or spend hours figuring it out, but I'd rather watch this and get on with using the plugin. I usually watch a section, play around with what I've learnt and then move onto the next video. Eli is excellent at getting across the nuts and bolts and leaving you to be creative.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from The long and winding road Lots of 'what', but very little 'how' or 'why'. The software comes with an instruction manual, the main value of video is contextualizing the learning. Eli you are patient and clear, but the 'lessons' here seem rote.
