Nice!

Very helpful, easy on the ears, always a bonus and well explained. If you haven't watched them and prefer the manual I would say "just watch these tutorials" Even if you are quick at learning on the fly, these will help you understand the intricacies and some of the finer details that are not obvious. Thanks!

Fantastic in-depth look at RX 6

I'd spent some time with RX 6 (not to mention a couple older versions) before going through these videos, so I was fairly familiar with it, but I still learned quite a bit going through all of these. There were tips and explanations for every little option in each RX module, so I was very glad I went through each video regardless. Overall, this course is a great in-depth look at each part of the RX suite of modules.

Use as a Supplement to Mike Thornton's RX 5 Series

I wanted to like this, but it is not as thorough as Mike Thornton's RX 5 series. Thornton knows the product cold and it shows. This RX 6 series is best used, if you find it necessary, to cover updates from RX 5.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I grew up taking classical piano lessons, so music has always been a part of my life. It started out as a daily chore and eventually evolved into a passion. Now I am very lucky to call it my profession.

2. What training have you had?

After thirteen years of private piano lessons I decided to pursue a formal degree. Two years in and I realized it wasn't for me. From that point on a began teaching myself and taking various online courses that offered subjects that excited me. I've gotten to learn and sit under individuals who are way better than I am.

3. When did you get into recording?

Ableton Live and the ability to make music with a computer were the two biggest reasons I didn't continue pursue a formal degree. I was in a band, we cut a DIY "garage album" and that started the obsession. The once obscured world of synths, hardware and software was now overwhealming as I transitioned away from a piano only mindset.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I have the great privilege to be working with Ableton as one of their Ableton Certified Trainers. Being a part of that community has been really amazing and life changing. I have yet to work with anyone rich and famous... but I have a feeling one day some of these crazy talented people will be. I get to work with students and artists who are chasing their musical dreams. I like the purity and passion that comes with that.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well, I've always been told that I'm a good teacher but I hated talking to people I didn't know. It took a while to get over those introvert tendencies and fear of public speaking and now I can't get enough. Watching a student get that lightbulb breakthrough or seeing an ignition of passion after the transfer of knowledge creates such a sense of fulfillment for me. I can't not teach.

Considering how "large" RX6 is the author does a good job of describing it overall then delving into the features in each module with a reasonable amount of detail.

One gets the feeling RX6 is a bit like Photoshop in that a person could devote a huge amount of time getting more and more proficient at it and this course is a great launching point for that.
