Bill Edstrom is EXCELLENT!!!!
I would watch and listen to Bill explain how to use a dictionary. This is the first series I've had him as mentor and I will look for his other videos for sure! He covers so much about a incredibly powerful DAW. I am new to all of this but have loved music since my high school band in the early 70's. I've created a little home studio for fun and I have learned so much in this series about Studio One AND personal music production as a whole. Bill has organized this series as building block lessons, one thing leads to another and each lesson is WOW! That is so cool. I love his presentation method, his use of video mouse and showing how to do stuff. I was able to follow along and I will watch this video over and over to pick up things I didn't get the first time now that I've gone through it one time. Thank you so much Mr. Edstrom for sharing your passion and expertise!!!! Jim

Very useful. One Important Suggestion.
The black mouse pointer does not stand out sufficiently from the grey background. As a result, when the commentator points out features on a screen, and he moves around the screen rather rapidly, it is easy to lose track of the mouse location, which distracts from the vocal commentary and results in playing back a portion of the video several times to find the mouse pointer. Suggestion: make the mouse pointer a different vivid color.

Excellent tutorial course for first time users
I have never used a DAW before so I needed a tutorial which would take me through the Studio One system step by step showing me how to use everything. This tutorial is absolutely perfect as it assumes zero knowledge and explains how to set up the system and then how to record, edit, mix etc. in a very clear way. I am using version 3 of Studio One, and I originally looked at the v 3 Explained course but found it was not so much of a step by step user guide - it looks fine once you understand the basics of home recording. The v 2 Explained course is fine for understanding the basics of v3 as the fundamental principles are the same. I would recomment the v2 Explained course as a perfect start point for novice users.
