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!

Very helpful!

Hi Groove3, Being a STUDIO ONE 3 PRODUCER user, I really needed to buy and keep some of your video's, old or new (updated) of Studio One. They are well presented, with a introduction to each one, the video quality is top notch :-) They also really helped me learning the process of mixing music and they also have good tips etc. etc. I'm glad to be part of Groove3 community and looking forward to learn some more with your wide variety of tutorials. Thanks, Michel.

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

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.

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.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started on trumpet at age 10, but got more passionate when I picked up bass and guitar in high school. During college, I had a band where I shared lead vocals and electric guitar duties. After that I was in a variety of bands usually on bass or behind the mixing board.

2. What training have you had?

I studied electrical engineering in college but mostly learned recording and music on my own. Recently, I completed the Master of Songwriting and Guitar program through Berklee Music.

3. When did you get into recording?

I have always been fascinated with tape recording since fifth grade. I started by recording demos by bouncing back and forth between two cassette decks. Later I moved on to portastudios, ADATS, pro studios, then to a DAW based project studio.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I work with songwriters world-wide as the founder and creator of LilacWriter.com - an online collaboration site for songwriters. In my career, I have done FOH, producing, songwriting, mixing, mastering, and voice over. Used to work regionally, but now requests can come from anywhere in the world.

I've written two books on audio production: "Studio One for Engineers & Producers" and "The Power in Cakewalk SONAR" both published by Hal Leonard Books.

Whenever possible, I work closely with the developers of the products I teach doing testing, bug reporting, and feature requests. I think this gives me a much deeper understanding of the products. I really enjoy seeing the products I work with improve.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have always been interested in making technology easier to use and understand. I think showing examples is essential when introducing a topic. I feel recording should be a fun and creative experience and I hope that comes across in my videos.
