GUARANTEED SAFE CHECKOUT
A great course, packed full of thorough but accessible information. Just what I was looking for. Thanks for making this fantastic resource.
I found this tutorial to be really benificial, it went into sufficient and logical detail on all aspects of the series iii studiolive desks, plus it went into other sound engineering theory that was insightful and I learnt a few things. The way David explains things is good, it’s not dull and boring like some tutorials can be. Highly recommend
I have the job of operating my bands new Behringer X32 Compact Mixer. After looking at as many YouTube videos as I could find, I finally found the ProAudioEXP X32 Video Tutorial. I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who uses the X32 Mixing Desk.
Great video guys 👍! A very basic and easy to follow step by step approach to learning all of the many features and recording power this unit has to offer.
Well done, thanks !
A fantastic tutorial explained simply but in great detail in a very understandable way. If you have either of these recorders this is a "Must Buy"
You'll be up and running in no time and understanding how it works and the many things it can do
Zoom R24 is loaded with a multitude of useful features. You will appreciate this tutorial where David clearly explores the intricacies of the R24's many features with ease and hands on clarity. Highly recommended! An excellent investment. *****
Great tutorial. David does a great job with how he explains the function and flow of the console. During an example of mixing, David's voice is almost drowned out. Other than that I found the tutorial a definite 5 star quality. His experience really shows well. Well worth the money.
Confirmed I was doing some things right al along, but all extended my knowledge.
I absolutely love this course- I've watched each video multiple times and I would have been so lost without these. Absolutely indispensable. If you're considering a Series III mixer, I would not even THINK of making such a large investment without also investing in this course.
Ultimate Home Recording School
It really helped me understanding the X32. And I am seriously pleased with the item Mixing 101.
Behringer X32 Video Tutorial
Informative and well paced. Though it would be nice if it had a time code for some sections
Great videos! Very informative and well presented! Great way to learn how to record at home.
David does a remarkable job explaining in everyday language all of important concepts and functions of the H4n. His tutorials enabled me to grasp all that I needed to begin using this great tool. I recommend his course to anyone, regardless of musical skill level. Zoom should hire him ! Ed R, Cincinnati, OH.
professional and organized
The Korg XD recorders (D16XD & D32XD) literally contain a full studio of gear in one machine. This tutorial helps unpack all the amazing features and complexities as well as giving some basic understanding of mixing, eq's, levels, etc. -- gets you to quality recording quicker. I wish I had this when I first bought my D16XD several years ago.
Great visual reference, especially if you're just getting started. Thanks, David!
I have until now been a Yamaha workstation user but decided I needed to go forth on a new venture so bought a pristine 2009 G8 with ARX 1 & 2 installed. This is an extremely difficult instrument to master if you’ve never used Roland hardware before and things would never become any easier without help. So, I paid for the Pro Audo EXP tutorial. So far so good although I haven’t progressed further than using the sequencer really. The thing I like best about it is it’s sofistication, editing and above all the built in DAW.
I recently bought a Presonus Studiolive 32 series III console and despite of the many videos I have found on Youtube it wasn't been easy for me understanding how to use all the resources of this powerfull console. All my problems were solved when I accidentelly found a teaser of this course. In a few hours David tauch me almost everything I need to know! Everytime I watch these videos I learn more not just about my Studiolive 32, but about audio and mixing. Now I'm thinking of buying another courses!
Great tutorial. Very well put together and very informative. Would highly recommend for anyone new to the behringer X32-Mixer and new to the digital world as I was.
So much information and useful advice for the price of a couple of piano lessons.
The course had everything I needed and more.
This is my forth course from Pro Audio Exp. One of the many things that keeps me coming back is that, by the end of each course, all my questions are answered.
With the use of concrete examples and real life analogies David is able to communicate vocal recording concepts with ease.
His use of the Reason DAW is great too as it emulates a hardware mixer and rack layout. I found this very helpful to graphically see routing etc.
This is a complete package, from human vocal physiology, care and maintenance through all the sound recording techniques and pro tips you’d expect form Pro Audio Exp.
Many thanks David
Concise, to the point. Great help in working my way around the controls. It should be noted that it’s best for the user to familiarize oneself on how to navigate the controls a bit by “playing around” with the controls surface. You can’t do any thing wrong by doing so. In this way while your using the tutorial you’ll understand a few points that are given as already understood. This tutorial is a great tool to mastering the Fantom G.
The videos were easy to follow. They flowed logically. They were everything they were advertised to be. In my opinion they were worth the investment.
Being a complete beginner I was intimidated by the complexity of the board, the video helped me begin to understand the layout and the logical steps to overcoming my confusion and gaining the confidence to move forward on the learning curve that is a natural part of learning anything new.
David, i could learn a lot from your tutorial for M32 course. thank you!
I would like to get some more information to get the effects sends to bus. I have difficulty in sending effects to bus( stage monitor). please advise.
I have viewed several videos at proaudioexp.com and find the tutorials extremely informative. The learning pace is easy and the information easy to assimilate.
Great tutorial on line learn a lot ty
Great tutorial on the boss gt6. It help me a lot more about that foot pedal. there isn't much out there now . This is what i was looking for ty again
Ultimate Live Sound School has great information, for beginners and professionals. Thanks for this great course.
Awesome!! Transform our media team!
Me and the team at my church have been watching the courses together. The instructor makes it really simple and fun to learn!
Really informative and easy to follow production that walks you through the entire process from the beginning, all the way thru mastering and getting your music out there. I think I'm going to try a couple master classes just because David makes it so easy to learn. Try this out - you won't be disappointed.
David is very thorough in his descriptions and the camera and audio are perfect. No shaky YouTube videos here! The examples are real life and one can definitely tell that David knows his stuff. Excellent video series - we are making this mandatory training at our church for all sound staff!
Excellent!!! opened up my knowledge to a another level I am more comfortable using my series iii now, Highly recommended!!
