Hard to Review: Nuggets and Pebbles ...
I have seen other tutorials by this presenter and I am personally uneasy with his "I am the guru, you have to adore me"-attitude that he is showing in this (old) video as well. Your mileage may vary and maybe you are a fan, so I apologize for any doubts I may have.
The series begins with the presenter telling his audience that the tool he is going to use it absolutely not up to the job. Odd? Well, it seems that he believes in "industry standards are to be used, even if they are bad, fail you and make your work harder than necessary". I have dumped quite a lot of "industry standard" software tools because of their bad programming, lack of stability/performance, bad Q.A. and have never looked back. There are alternatives - starting a tutorial by telling you that the tool is known to fail is ... weird.
The presenter builds up the production the "standard way", starting with a sketch, creating a drum track, bass, guitars, vocals. This is fine and easy to follow along if you have got some basic understanding of how your tools work.
However, the presenter seems constantly unfocused. I consider it a didactic misconception to just open a ready-made project and explain "what you've done". People can learn more if you build something from scratch (which he claims he's doing, but in fact, he is only redoing some of the steps he did before, he is not EXPLORING the project but blindly repeating. That's where he's losing focus!). He is making minor, unimportant mistakes that probably irritate the beginner without ever going back and correcting himself. He repeats marketing claims by software vendors without thinking about what he's repeating (example: his beloved 10 microseconds on 44.1kHz sampling is HALF a sample. Telling the audience that this is "the fastest attack you can get" is just missing the point, since these 10 microseconds just have no meaning on the frequency he is sampling at - he's often confusing digital workflows with analogue workflows, where I am absolutely certain he knows EXACTLY what he is talking about, but chooses to ignore it because he doesn't take his audience seriously).
He ends more than every second sentence by "right?" or "OK?", starts with "I want you to do this ...", as if he's speaking to school kids, which I find highly disturbing.
Yes, I am bragging about the tutor, not the content - that is because TEACHING is an art, just like producing is. If the teaching style gets in the way of getting the content across, something's wrong.
The content IS GOOD. I can recommend watching this - and other videos by the same tutor - for the knowledge (despite the lack of focus), if you can get around his know-it-all-attitude.
That is why I find it hard to review this course. I am getting old. My skin is getting thinner when it comes to being treated like I am stupid.
(I am giving lower ratings on the viewing quality because the videos only show a very small part of an actual screen - partially due to the age of the videos, obviously.)

Good content with a spattering of errors
The general content and stuff that is presented is good. He has plenty of good tips and techniques that are applicable to many styles. He tends to make mistakes quite often like mistaking a tom hit for a snare hit, missing some cross fades, 3dB at 4Hz to a high pass filtered high hat? Generally good but some of the technical things he says just don't make sense.
