I ahve been using the board for over a year now. This course filled in many of the blanks i had. Fantastic!! Thank you.
Tascam DP-24/DP-32 Tutorial
I can’t say enough how great this course is! It is well thought out, and very to the point without a lot of wasted words taking up time. And I’ll add, David’s enthusiasm and easy going style really makes a difference. 5 stars all the way!
as i am new to purchase studio one pro this tutorial was very helpful its a shame it isnt on dvd that would be even better. i do have several dvds that David has produced like masterclass in eq, gates compressors, presonus studio live 3, live sound and recording. David is a great teacher of what he does i highly recommend any of Davids tutorials.
David’s instructional video on the Presonus Studio One Pro 5.0 should without a doubt be the industry standard and first stop for anyone making the leap into this high end DAW...if Dave’s name is attached to it you automatically know the best instructor is in front of you.....thanks David another winning class
Its much easier to learn when someone steps you through the process. This video guide is great at thoroughly demonstrating the key processes that you need to know. Some of these tips you may not have known were available to you, but now that you know these handy time-saving tips. It just makes life easier, and who doesn't like that!
Your tutorial is the exact thing I needed to jump start my "hands-on" training with an A&H SQ7 console. I'm an "old analog guy" too, with over 20 years in live sound reinforcement (small local bands and church applications), and after an 8-year hiatus am getting back into volunteering my time with a new church. The SQ7 is a bit intimidating at first glance, but your tutorial has shown me tips and best practices to use that I know will have me regaining my confidence in a short time. Definitely worth the cost, and I recommend it to anyone needing first-time instruction or a refresher course on this equipment. Thanks for making this available.
David has produced the most clear and concise instruction courses there could be on these unique music engineering devices. His presentation style is thoughtful as he quickly gets to the point and answers the question of how to get a task done within the mixer or DAW. In these tutorials, you will have a friendly expert showing you how to do the tasks necessary for success! Dean Fleming
I learned how to handle my church's SQ-5 from YouTube videos, but there was a lot missing, and I spent a lot of time watching videos that repeated the same concepts. Now in this one DVD I have all that I need both for me, and to help teach others how to use the board. This will assure my obsolescence down the road, which is the whole idea, to raise up others that can free you to lead in other areas!
I switched to Presonus Studio One in 2019 when buying the StudioLive 32 series III mixer. I went that way because of the integrated workflow all the way from recording through mixing and mastering, to finished product, where the DAW and the mixer speak together in a way that I have been looking for a long time. In this process I discovered David Wills' video tutorials, which I regard being of a very high quality with big learning value. I started with the course on the mixer and it kicked me up and running much quicker than the pdf manual ever could have. And the tutorial grows in value as I can go back for more knowledge as I experience more. As a result I have purchased pretty much all of the catalaog in ProAudioExp on generic audio production knowledge (compressors, eq,mixing,etc.). A quick way to repeat and build upon my old knowledge! And now I will do the same with Studio One. Highly recommendable tutorials with a professional, nice teacher. Thanks for this, David!
Presonus Studio One is an amazing DAW for anyone who enjoys Recording, Mixing and Mastering in today's digital world. In his new Presonus Studio One Course David Wills never ceases to amaze us with his in-depth teaching combined with his musical expertise. He shows tons of tips on how to make the work flow understandable and easy. This course is a must for any Presonus User that is serious about their work. Hats off to you David for the many hours of work you've put into this course for us.
Well David hit another homerun with this one as far as I am concerned. I'm a standalone DP32sd and BR-800 kind of guy, but I was still able to get a lot out of the class. Although it is mostly geared for those who are using DAW's the stand alone crowd can still benefit from this video series. Actually I do use Audacity to edit some of my tracks and even though David was using Reason and Pro Tools I could still find workarounds to apply what he was teaching.. Thanks David..
Concise straightforward and easy to understand overview of all the basic functions of this classic piece of gear.
I've had some experience on the Tascam 2488 in the past and wanted to refresh my memory on its features. This tutorial did the trick and I also learned some things I didn't know previously. Well done!
I’m a laymen at the sound board at our church but we don’t have a sound expert. The training videos for the PreSonus StudioLive really helped me understand how to use the board much better. I am able to use many more functions on the board now than I could before.
