David is one of my favourite instructors, love his voice and his kindness. And his knowledge is unbelievable – love it!!
I couldn’t find a compressive tutorial on the Midas M32 on YouTube. I’m glad I took a chance and paid for this class with David. I have gone on to pay for the Master class in Killer vocals and Ultimate home recording School. I have no regrets. I’m more confident now in the studio.
Finally after owning the Roland ME-70 which I bought back when I still had hair, I can finally use it with the robust understanding needed to incorporate it as part of my gig go bag. Thanks David, your videos are the best, they insure that the gear can be used to its full potential. Ron W.
Great course. Very detailed yet easily understood and applied.
I wish this series went into a bit more depth, but that may make it harder to watch. It's a great series for those that have just got their feet wet on this console and want to learn about all the features that are "under the hood." I like the pace and clarity of the teaching. Great value!
I needed some help with my portastudio and found David on ebay and purchased a Tutorial proaudioEXP. He explains very slowly and very professionally which makes it so easier to understand.
The videos in this series were very well done. It was well organized, and very well taught. I appreciated the detailed explanations of the Allen & Heath terminology. Though mixers do similar tasks, they often do things in a different order and use different terms and protocols. The instructor unlocked all those mysteries in a very clear and precise manner. I highly recommend this series.
Those that have a knack for plowing forward will appreciate this and David's other tutorials. Without spending a great deal of time in the detail that only confuse, the emphasis is on the basics, getting things up and running. Most of what is left out of his tutorials are tings one will answer oneself as the need and understanding arises. Why give an answer to a question we yet don't have? Great work and very responsive to questions. He actually returns emails and phone calls promptly.
I decided to pick this course as a way to pursue my passion, and it has not disappointed me. I feel very much equipped; the simplicity and yet the much depth will start your journey into becoming a great audio engineer; thanks David for creating this package!
David’s MasterClass courses are amazing. The flow, cadence, and content of the course start with the basics (What is EQ). With careful attention to building knowledge and skill, David layers the content so that you will have confidence in applying what you have learned in a live setting by the conclusion of the course.
But it is also important to know that you will be applying what you are learning as David is teaching when taking the course. He even included example files to use during your training. I highly recommend you add this Masterclass-EQ to your collection! - Jack Belford, Worship Production Coordinator, Light of Christ Church
I went from frustrated to having fun over the course of a few days in the course on my Studiolive mixer.
Great course, far easier than reading the manual and far better organised with a lot of extra tips and tricks into the bargain
I truly appreciate your clear and concise videos that get right to the point. All is good and I am learning a TON.
Just what I was looking for after trawling the web and not getting satisfaction from all the random tutorials on Youtube. Great to have someone walk through the process from newbee to intermediate user. Perfect for getting to know all the capability and features of the SQ Series of mixers.
I purchased the video series before buying the StudioLive, to help build my comfort level in making the purchase! I've watched the videos several times, in preparation for the mixer's arrival. I'm picking it up at Guitar Center today, feeling like I've got a head start on the learning curve due to the tutorials!
