Easy to follow and understand without this course i would still be going round in circles instead of advancing to the next level in music production. This clearly the best investment to learn how to use reason . Watching and trying to learn there is no where near joining ask video and learning properly instead of guessing.

As it turns out there wasnâ€™t much in this video that I didnâ€™t already know. Nonetheless, I did pick up a few new ideas and learn a couple of new tricks. That being said, I still give it four stars. If your skill level and knowledge is less than mine you will learn a lot from this video.
