Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very Helpful Migrating from Sonar given the state of Cakewalk. These videos have been extremely helpful. I was nervous as I have been using Cakewalk since the early midi days but Studio One has a ton of capability. Thanks to Groove3 for the videos and helping me transition to a new DAW!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from It's an amazing piece of tutorials I was really stopped at my productions basically because learning a new program like Studio One its time consuming and well, i didn't put really enough time learning it, so even when the workflow its incredible, i didn't really got the speed that's supposed to have using it. Now that i got this tutorials i can really learn Studio One from 0 and climb until i got the level of expertise neccesary to get a satisfiying experience. Thank you for your time doing this

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Clearly explained options Overall this is a great product. My only real disappointment was with the screen zoom feature. When I click full screen the actual video stays the same size, only the border of browser is removed. I'm viewing on a 27" screen and some of the images should be zoomed in a bit to be able to clearly see what is being explained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Incredibly helpful Just a note to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!! I got this series and it has changed my world. Very concise and direct and does not assume any previous knowledge. When I looked things up in the manual, it would say "just do this" without saying how. The step by step detailed instructions in these videos has made working with the program so much easier and faster. I just wish I had found these a couple years ago when I started. The only down side is it is sometimes hard to see where his cursor is or read his screen. Would be great to up the size of the screen shots.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Easy to understand I am a computer phobe and the tutorials have allowed me to enjoy vs. fear this process!! Clarity of video could be a bit larger and clearer. Nor sure if that's me or you all.
