GUARANTEED SAFE CHECKOUT
David has done it again with this comprehensive, step by step instructional video. I have found it hard to get a quality guide on a not so recent Tascam DP 32 recorder, but Pro Audio has maintained this easily explained guide for musicians still entranced by hands on recorders as opposed to computer DAW's. Thanks again David,
cheers Nev Smith
Excellent tuition explained perfectly.
I have brought a couple of the tutorials now. The most important thing for me is relevance and ease. The videos are well spread out and covers everything you need in an easy user platform.
The confidence I gain from watching these tutorials is second to none. Love the videos. Do your self a favour....
Amazing help understand where I should place my threshold and how to utilize the result of the knobs
Being a music teacher myself, I know how important it is to make my music lessons clear, informative and enjoyable. David delivers all of theses and more. The masterclasses are friendly and at a good tempo so everything is understood. Very impressive.
After having already bought a number of David’s training courses, beginning with a couple in equipment, I was impressed with the presentations and what I was able to learn so quickly. I’m self taught on almost everything and have always had a thirst for technical knowledge. Music is really rewarding and fun ... but it’s also technicle. David cuts through that stuff like a butter knife!! I als own Master Classes on EQ, Live Sound, and Compression. Good Stuff!!!
I thought I had purchased the DVD Version of the product. When I inquired where my DVD was I was told I had actually purchased the online version. He offered to basically swap them out for me. Quick response too.
I loved the course , Amazing job thank you so much
Great jobs for putting this course together.
We bought the M32R digital console. This was our first time with a digital mixer and we were quite unabel to cope with all the functions of the m32r.
But with the help of this toturial we made it.
It was also easy to understand for us although we aren't experts in mixing and in english (because we are from Germany).
The shipping of the DVD didn't took a long time. And thank you that you also gave us the online account.
We really recommend the m32r tutorial!
It's quite possible that we buy another tutorial to understand things even netter.
This course is succint in presenting the fundamentals of audio mixing. You will learn about the physics of sound (vibrations in a medium in this case air) without the heavy math. You’ll learn about frequencies in units of Hertz (Hz), the measurement of loudness in decibels (Db) , and how to operate any sound mixer understanding basic fundamentals of the signal chain, how to add effects like reverb, how to group instruments together into sub-groups, and topics about power amplifiers, cabling, and troubleshooting problems such as ground loops and noise. A fine training for beginners, or those who need a refresh. A great tool to have in your sound library.
I have now acquired and watched all of ProAudio's Master Class courses, along with a class on the Tascam DP-24 and Ultimate Home Recording School courses. All are extremely informative, enjoyable, and easy to understand. In short, I have learned a lot in the art of audio recording via David Wills' excellent guidance. I am now making the transition from TASCAM Portastudio to full DAW and consequently have ordered a copy of David's course on Reason 9 which I feel will greatly speed my learning of the Reason 11 software.
I am a huge fan of the ProAudio courses and highly recommend these course to others.
I just want to say that the video tutorial of the DP 24 from Tascam was a lifesaver for me.
Trying to understand the manual that came with it left me more confused been watching videos on YouTube.
When I found out that the DP 24 add a video to go with it I jumped on the opportunity to order this and prove to be a lifesaver.
Can't say thank you enough for this DVD tutorial on the Tascam DP 24 I highly recommend this video as it touches on much more then just the operation of this machine.
The Masterclass’s are great, helpful and provide useful information.
David does it again. What a great learning experience done with an easy going style. This is the 5th or so class that I have purchased and each one has helped me grow as a fledgling engineer. Great job, Mate!
This was a great compliment to my audio engineering education! Thx David!
I have gotten several courses over the years and this one is another outstanding one! Love how David teaches different parts on different workstation programs (Reason, Pro tools, Logic) Nobody else does that! So you can get comfortable with seeing it done in different ways. And learning from one of the masters of recording. A lot I did not know about mixing, now I get it! Thanks David
Tascam DP-03 Tutorial
This course has been put together with a lot of care and attention to detail. It’s clear and easy to follow with well thought out diagrams. David delivers a very enjoyable and informative course.
this course is the best for mixing and live sound
I thought I had a pretty good understanding of compression but after taking this class, I couldn't wait to go back to my mixes and apply what I learned, with amazing results! As always, David has a way of explaining complex subjects in simple terms that anyone can understand.
I totally found the lessons in this DVD very useful. Given the complexity of the integrated circuitry and human interface, David explains the basics succinctly and touches on some of the more extended features of the mixer. I had been working with the M32 for a few months and found clarity about topics like Subgroups, Matrices and Cues, Scenes and Snippets. This is an investment that more than pays for itself. Highly recommended.
Great teacher, always excellent courses
An excellent guide to all things EQ. Clearly presented and well thought out, covering both the theory of EQ and its practical uses. Easy to recommend.
David is the best brilliant teacher
The tutorial on the Presonus StudioLive 32III mixer is a big help with finding the missing pieces of info from all the web surfing attempts to understanding it. Great to be able to refer back to as well. Saves a ton of time searching out answers. Well done David!
Excellently explained, in-depth tutorial, covering all aspects of the mixer.
I’m not one for reading manuals so this tutorial saved me time and headache.
I have had the Presonus Studiolive 111 mixer for a few months and was trying to work my way through things after watching YouTube videos, but watching the ProAudioEXP DVD I got a great deal more hands on operation information than all the YouTube videos put together and a consistent and thought through presentation well recorded for sound and vision, great stuff indeed.
Great course on the fundamentals of live sound.
The Presonus Studio Live Series III are a great mixer with lot of features and easy to use when you have got into the flow.
This tutorial give you a good overview on how to, and for more experience users, still some useful tips. Not always in details, but if things need further research, there are answers around on the web. The possibility’s on the mixer are covered on an easy to follow tutorial in this course.
And the best thing, the tutorial can be watched again if needed, as it are hosted on your account at ProAudioEXP, and can be watched from anything with an internet connection.
Wish my previous collection of DVD’s was available the same way.
This is a great course to get started quickly on the DP 24. David teaches in a way that makes sense to someone who wants to get down to business right away. He has a logical approach to teaching, and I was able to track right along with him. Excellent course!
David is the best...highly recommend all his videos.
I've learned so much from these videos. it's rare to have someone teach actual skills needed to excel in audio engineering..these videos are that one extra step that youtube and others cant provide for free. so where do you go? you go to the pros. all the info you need is here. the next thing you need to do is put it to practice and that's what makes it good reference material and commands frequent views to nail down a concept or abstract menu navigation.
