Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Best tutorial I've watched in a decade. When you combine Laurence's direct-to-the-point style, his deep experience with trance/techno/house/edm alongside the most exciting synth I've ever used - and I've been doing electronic composition since the days of Opcode Midi-only Vision, you get a simply awesome tutorial. It was so effective and invigorating, that if Laurence taught at a University - I'd probably sign up for the four year degree just cause. So good, I'm actually annoyed it's over - and he covered everything so what does this even mean? Maybe we're all hungry for an Advanced Avenger Techniques now? Anyway, I'll start praying to a volcano that Laurence continues this and does the rest of the Vengeance Producer Suite product line. For now though - if you are a new Avenger user, this tutorial is simply a must watch.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from very helpfull I would like to have a new serie of training going a little deeper intho the things. I am looking for example how to step seq to module the patterns. It seems that with the arpegiatior is limited to 4 patterns ABCD but we should be able to use the step sequence as a modulator of this patterns. Then I should be able to play AAAB, ABDDABBC or patter I like. It was I have been explained by a vengeance tech guy. But I am not able to redo what he suggested me. Please help me with more trainings

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from great synth, very good review I own Vengeance Avenger and think it's a great soft synth. I'm ~20% through this video tutorial and think its a very clear and useful tutorial. Avenger is so powerful, it helps to have a walk through. Deducting 1 star because there are already other good (free) extensive tutorials for this synth. That said, make no mistake, this is a very worth while tutorial for Avenger owners or the Avenger curious, and a nice job by the video author & guide.
