Hi David,the course on Studio one 5 pro is great! Presonus should include your video as part of the S! pro package. A small increase in cost could add to the enjoyment of S1 pro 10 fold! thanks for the great job. Ron.
Since 1978 I have been interested in audio with my first encounter with MIX magazine. Yeah I'm old!! I looked at over 100 YouTube videos and this one is the most comprehensive easy to understand (ha, after the 2nd viewing) Never taking any classes or formal training I learned by trial and error. Noise gates, compressors, limiters were beyond comprehension for me until now. I searched for an easy to learn digital mixer for my church with analog inputs that can be expanded later to network audio and Midas M32 Live was perfect. This video will be shared with my volunteers to get them up to speed. I encourage those who are considering audio education and avoid getting a mortgage to pay for it, invest in Pro Audio EXP!!
Allen and Heath SQ Series Video Tutorial (SQ5, SQ6, SQ7)
I was searching YouTube videos to learn my new mixer and came across David’s video. Purchased the package and didn’t look back.
Videos and explanations are brilliant, everything is really clear and well organised!
I have a few of David's instructional products and have recently purchased the Masterclass in EQ. They all live up to the hype. His expert knowledge is evident throughout and his presentation is easy to understand and entertaining. I highly recommend any of David's products to you.
Even after using Logic since version 5 on a Mac7100 snd a pc (remember maybe?), I found loads of nice new info nuggets in this tutorial. Very clear and precise no-nonsense explanations about basic functions in chapter 1 and 2, and from chapter 3 the more advanced and some times in plain sight hidden possibilities of Logic are revealed.
One small b-flat: it would be nice to add personal notated markers in the course timelines, but I presume Vimeo is (not yet?) up to snuff for that. at least I haven’t found a way yet?)
But for me the most importantly: David really knows what he’s talking about, and his tuto is great!
Forget the manual, it comes nowhere close to revealing the hidden depths of this magnificent beat box. I have been able to put together some convincing demos to illustrate to my drummer what is needed to make the tracks sparkle. David is engaging, as ever, and instils confidence as he ploughs through the myriad of special treats in store for the owner of a DR880. Top notch.
good service and quick shipping with a great price to boot.
understanding was made ez with these vids, it is the first place to look for training
great video of master class in mixing so easy to follow and good information. Thanks David your dvds are so helpful. thanks Warren
Our Church recently transitioned from an analogue mixing board to a Allen & Heath QU32. This was our very first digital mixer, and we had no idea how to operate it. We just knew that based on our research, this was the board we wanted. David's "Allen and Heath Qu Series Video Tutorial" was all we needed to get up and running with tremendous results from the very first mix. We tried numerous YouTube videos, but we needed much more content and a systematic program. Our Church in Kingston, Jamaica thanks Dave for this marvelous product. I literally do not know how we would have managed thee transition without Dave's course. You are extremely special to us, Dave.
This is a great overall course:and let's you know what you need to do to get a great home recording. warning once you are done you will want to order some of the master classes lol
Glad to see you are still making training videos. As you might remember, I own a number of your previous products, and I see you have produced a new one for Studio One. I find that thanks to you I am starting to understand how to use the product in my Studio. Cudos!
Sound Studio Owner and Musician
One of the most incredible things about Logic Pro is the sheer vastness of it. For me, it was pretty overwhelming as I tried to learn everything there was to know about the program. What I really needed was a “no nonsense” tutorial showing you all you need to know in a clear and easy to follow way. Once again, David has produced a fantastic series of videos.
