GUARANTEED SAFE CHECKOUT
Great video that has helped me a lot
The tutorial on my DR880 was very thorough and helpful and saved me a lot of time. And David was even helpful after the sale in answering a question I had. I’ll be back 👍
Perfect training :-)
I'm pretty new when it comes to digital mixers and when tackling a powerhouse such as StudioLive Series III 64S, a visual aid is crucial to get your head around it. This toturial makes the initial learning curve a whole lot easier.
I particulary appreciated that the tutorial included DAW-mode, as I use this mixer exclusively in a studio environment.
I can highly recommend it, especially if you are new to digital mixer and/or the Studiolive Series III.
I really like and enjoy using this device. Easy to use and good quality all round.
The manual didn’t cover what this training course did. It gave perfect guidance and went through the capabilities and processes of this console. Easy to follow instructions. Makes using this board a dream. I recommend this course for anyone who will be using this console.
David is very informative and explains his lessons in a clear way. He is a wonder teacher and is very kind with his customers. Overall the program was outstanding. Would recommend.
As an old, analog guy, your training was absolutely invaluable in allowing me to understand, and competently operate the X32. I'm looking forward to reviewing it, and and taking full advantage of of both the training AND the console.
Our group, Blátt Gras, just purchased a Presonus studiolive series iii 32s mixing desk. I have been looking for a “walk through” course for this board, and i found it here.
Thank you very much! I will definitely buy another course.
I head the Media Ministry at my church. We just bought the Allen & Heath SQ7 and I needed a way to get my team up to speed on it before we went live. Came across ProAudioEXP and David via a Google search. I read reviews and took a $30 gamble which really paid off. David is an excellent teacher and his video persona is very encouraging. Keep It Simple is the best way for first-timers to learn quickly and the SQ7 course hit the mark. My whole team went from nervous to confident in 7 well-timed sessions. We will be back for the Master Classes and other courses in the very near future. Finding this course was a real blessing.
Highly recommend this course for M32 users. You’ll learn more from this course than reading from the manuals.
I am an old monitor mixer, when monitor mixes used to be done on stage. About 20 years ago I retired from the sound industry through ill health, which still plagues me today unfortunately.
Just over 18 months ago I was asked by a new friend if I would like to go and hear his band play. I thought, well it is a night out, so off I went. As soon as I heard them play I knew that they had IT!
If you have had anything to do with music, then you will know what I mean. I asked my friend if I could go and listen to them rehearse and maybe give them some tips if needed, to which he said yes. I cannot give the name of the band as the ink has yet to be put to paper.
That brings me to now. As I didn't train to be a front of house engineer, I was a bit unsure, when asked by the band if I would engineer their front of house mix, but I agreed knowing that I had just enough knowledge of FOH mixes, so that I would not show the band or myself up.
That brings me to Pro Audio EXP. The band have just purchased a Behringer X32 digital mixing desk for future endeavours and I was lost to be honest. I knew a little about digital desks, but the Behringer is something entirely different.
The cheap in price, but definitely not in quality courses on offer from Pro Audio EXP is exactly what is needed if I want to get the most out of the desk and in making the band sound their best.
The course is broken down into easily managed videos, in which everything from the basics to the intricate are explained in a no nonsense way without too much in the way of information that is not relevant. If you are a newbie to digital desks, especially the X32, then this course will give you all the information you need to sound like a master engineer.
If you are like myself and have a good knowledge of sound mixing, but you require the bits of information that you lack, then get this course as fast as you can.
Since purchasing the Behringer X32 course, I have just today bought the Masterclass in Mixing course to help me even more achieve the results which I want. I am also looking at purchasing the Ultimate Live Sound School, which really goes to those in deep places very few sound engineers will ever go.
Don't put off buying one or more of these courses, because I guarantee you, you will regret that decision.
I hope you enjoy, as much as I am, the wonderful selection of courses and that they help you achieve your goals in whatever area of sound you are in.
I've had the 1st edition of the Ultimate Home Recording School for several years now. I was excited to see that the 2nd edition was released. You can learn the technology and how to follow a manual to push the buttons and click the right places in your software from anywhere, but these DVD's are AWESOME for knowing why you make those choices. No matter how much I record or how much gear/software I buy, I still go back to these DVD's pretty regularly to make sure I never lose those key principles. David's teaching style is very easy to follow and he knows how to illustrate the different topics very well. You get the sense that actually cares about wanting to improve your recordings. I own several of the master classes as well. Well worth the money.
This mixer is amazing, but unfortunately, the manual tells you what it can do, but doesn't do much to show you how to do it. After watching this tutorial by David Wills, I have a much firmer grasp on how to use the unlimited potential of this awesome mixer! I have purchased all of the Masterclasses, and quite a few of the keyboard and studio tutorials, and I've always been impressed by how much I've learned. Also, because you own the tutorial, you can go back and learn even more the second time you watch it. Thank you David for another in a long line of very helpful tutorials!!!!
Thanks, perfect training
