I have Cubase 8.5 but never having used it before I found the videos for my iteration generally assume you already know certain things, which generally I didn't. It was therefore useful to go back to the "beginning", as it were (as far as videos on Groove3 are concerned) and learn some basic stuff which is still in Cubase. The video's give a good overview. The one, slight, criticism I have is that the presenter has a habit of continually using the word "Bam", which after a while I found grated a bit, but its a minor gripe really. That's the only reason I didn't give it a 5 ! Each to their own vernacular I guess.
