Fabulous. Please more tutorials by Mr Childs! Would love his take on Alchemy (logic synth)

A very good synth but sometimes a bit of a mystery. That's why I needed this tutorial. It gave me enough information to start using this great sounding synth. Very good tutorial.

I watched this course out of sheer curiosity, it definitely covers enough to get you more than working fluently, great job.

Another clear and concise, well formatted course from this instructor. I enjoy that each video was relatively short, because they were all packed with a good bit of info, and it helped me to digest things by having a spare 5 or 10 seconds in between techniques and ideas. Thank you for another great course sir!

Clear, detailed and humor. Great series. There could have been a brief video explaining LFOs, waves etc. for beginners although I'm familiar with it, but not an expert.

Good instruction and easy to follow. My only suggestion is that he also showed how to make a big growling wobble bass found in dubstep or aggresive electronic music as what I would expect this synth to be great for.

Great tutorial. I was able to thoroughly understand all about this instrument. I will start using this instrument more thanks to this tutorial.

Great details on this wild ass synth. Hope to remember all the creative angles I can use this thing for. I may have to return again because there is so much control.

You will learn things from this, don't get me wrong. However, it's a walk through a set of patches that are very much planned out ahead of time; he clearly has a set of numbers for each knob's setting in front of him, and while he sometimes covers why something is set a certain way, it's not a guarantee. Basically, they are clear videos, but walking you through a finished project is more the way of this tutorial than actually building anything from scratch.

great stuff! he keeps it interesting and there is no waste of time or useless information. everything seems organized in a way to touch on every parameter mod and i love how he explains in detail why he changes certain parameters to get a certain sound
