Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Now I Know How to Use the Abbey Road Plugins I recently mixed a project using the Abbey Road Collection. I got through the plugins as best I could without a lot of reference to the manuals. This series helped me understand the origin and use of the devices along with many of the tweaks I could do with them. Well done videos with clear instructions. I appreciated that the instructor went through the changes slowly whereas some instructors rush too much.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Useful Tutorial A useful review for the Abbey Road Collection. It is clearly explained and well narrated. However, it would be nice to have had some additional audio samples, other than a single mediocre heavy metal number.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from ABBEY ROAD COLLECTION My only complaint is: When comparing the "Bypass" mode back to the "Processed" mode was way too quick...I would like to hear the change come about on basically the same audio passage ..engaging and disengaging too quickly was not enough time for my ear to adjust to the subtleties you were trying to point out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from REDD 17/REDD 37-51 I have only this plugin and also the AB Reverb plugin of the Abbey Road Collection - so I haven't had a need to cover the rest just yet. In regards to the REDD Series the layout explanation about the features of the plugin was extremely helpful and I would add - "is a major time saver as well". Would have like to have seen more audio examples of the plugin(s) in use though - other than that it was very informative.
