GUARANTEED SAFE CHECKOUT
Hello Mr. David. I purchased ULSS for my Audio and Video tech at our Church in Phoenix AZ. I personally have a very technical background and after reading the reviews decided to give it a try. I assigned one of my video technicians to take the course. He completed all the videos in just over three hours. I informed him that I would be giving him an informal verbal assessment to determine his level knowledge and comprehension after completing the course. Mind you his original depth of knowledge was very close to zero from an audio/sound perspective. To my surprise he was able to answer all my questions and his level of confidence even improved as he conveyed his responses.
From a knowledge level, I believe this was an excellent purchase and all of my video and audio personnel will now have to complete this course. All new volunteers will have to complete this course before they will be allowed to touch any of the equipment in these areas. Job well done Mr. David for making this information and training understandable and applicable. Don Sheldon, Covenant City Church, Phoenix AZ.
This tutorial is dead on and timely for us! Our only request is for more! Would love to have one for Studio One Pro!!!
Detailed and well explained. Very good course.
I have been looking for one of these now-discontinued machines for a while now but always baulked at the price and the risk/uncertainty when ordering it from overseas. This specimen was sold as a "used" item, about which I had a few reservations but decided to trust the local supplier. After a couple of issues with the courier service, I opened the package to find an essentially "as new" unit with all the original packaging (including unopened manual and CD). I've had it for a few weeks now and it's far exceeded my expectations. You guys will be at the top of my list to check out when I'm next in the market for some specialised gear. Thanks!
I'm glad I got the tutorial, cause I learned a lot of things I didn't know. Worth the money. Easy transaction, and great quality!
This was the first video I purchased and learned of Dave Wills. It was a really well done overview of pretty much every part of the Fantom-S product and included great video examples of using those functions. I later heard he was developing other training videos and now own nearly every one. If you have a Fantom-S, get this - the price is more than paid for in your ability to use the product well.
I highly recommend this especially if you are clueless or have no experience using this product. You will not be disappointed. Thanks to the very knowledgeable David for the very thorough tutorial, simple to follow and understand.
Excellent, very well reserched, explained and professionally presented. thank you for your personal service.
Ultimate Home Recording School
Another great tutorial DVD from David. He was just as concise, succinct, and friendly in his presentation on this DVD as he was years ago on his Zoom H4n. Thank you David. I'd recommend either DVD. Ed R.
A comprehensive course by a teacher who knows what he's talking about! I'm a self-taught audio tech, and it was great to learn some new information from a master! Great course David! Keep producing more training.
Very professional and clear presentation
This course is fantastic if you want to solidify your knowledge and understanding of all the stages that are needed to produce music at home. Very detailed and everything is to the point with excellent examples.
Davids tutorial for the Tascam DP-03SD is a great way to get a personal introduction that builds on the owners manual to familiarise you with the controls and an overview of the recording process.
Learning from David Wills is akin to having your best friend - who is at the same time a highly knowledgeable audio engineer - lead you through a highly technical subject in a fun and relaxed way, helping you improve your skills in a short amount of time. Highly recommended!!
Ultimate Home Recording School
Fantastic presentation.Nice clear easy to understand tutorial.I found the manual didn’t explain access to some features very well.Nearly threw in the towel on home recording. Thanks for saving the day.
Great to have someone clearly explain professional mixing procedures in today's digital world. Anyone coming from the analog environment will clearly see the marriage between the two and the importance of both technologies.
I purchased Behringer X32 video tutorial because recently I switched my analog Behringer Audio mixer to Behringer X32 producer…
The overall contents has very wonderful tutorials. But I wish it could have more guide to show the initial setup for the new person with a digital mixers….
Excellent! Really helpful for a begginer like me! It was very difficult to find tutorials about the Fantom XA, this video tutorial really worths the money!!!!
I`ve had the 2488 for around 9 years. After moving house I had to convert my garage to find room to fit my studio equipment. So my trusty 2488 was in a box for around 14 months and as a consequence I forgot how to use all the snazzy facilities in this amazing portastudio.
The DVD presented by Mr. David Wills is simply irreplacable. It introduces one to all the techniques and methods of using the 2488 but also includes some basic sound recording lessons such as microphone placement for the newcomer to home recording.
I reviewed the DVD after this long break from recording and found it to be well organised and intuitive. David introduces us to little tips and tricks that are well nye impossible to find using the manual alone which is really heavy work!
I would give this DVD 10 out of 10 in all respects and one a 2488 owner should have at their disposal at all times.
This is a very helpful tutorial well worth the money I would recommend this to anyone who needs help understanding this board it takes you thru the whole board.Highly recommended
This is one of the best tutorials on the market today. I would recommend it to anyone.
I really loved this training course on getting the most in vocal recording. I've been writing, recording, and producing my own songs for about 3 years, and have struggled to get the best vocal sound. I've watched a myriad of YouTube videos which offered some help, but I was extremely impressed with how David Wills recorded a lead vocal as well as 3-part harmonies during the class. They sounded incredible! (I also loved the song.) Thanks, David, for another outstanding course! -Doug Kelley
This is a very good tutorial series that gets right to the point of each feature. I highly recommend it for anyone who is learning how to use the Tascam DP24 or DP32.
I love the pace and knowledge that David has. He breaks down and demonstrates the powerful features of the Presonus ecosystem in easy to understand segments. I appreciate his presentation being laid back, yet packed with awesome information.
I found out a lot from that video things that are not in the manual. I will be glad when I can get out to rehearsals with the band to use it. Then record the band. I did own a 24.4.2 studiolive but this series iii is much better. Thank you david for your DVDs I have quite a few of them keep them coming thanks Warren
This video was the perfect tutorial for me. Each an every aspect covered in the video was clearly explained and demonstrated. Awesome!!!
I really enjoyed the training David Wills provided on my new StudioLive 32s mixer. It is obvious that he knows the subject very well. In fact, I purchased two more classes on recording by David and will purchase more. He does an excellent job as a teacher. Thanks!
Crystal clear explanations !!!
It is a lot easier to understand things when you actually see it :-)
This is not my first Pro-Audio-DVD, but it shure won't be my last.
Truly recommendable !
Greetings from Belgium (Europe) :-)
Thank you David :-)
the Toutorial for StudioLive is informative and very well illustrated. Perfect for learning with this large mixer. My English is not that good. But with the videos you can follow every step well.
You cannot go wrong with any program through Pro AudioEXP. David Wills professionally, thoroughly and exhaustively presents whatever product he demonstrating. I now have this review of the DP-24/32 along with David's instructional video manual on the Boss DR-880 in my account here. David's demonstrational teaching is the best anywhere on the internet.

I never thought I would meet such a perfect lesson! Congratulations David
