Complete Package: .…–....Over 60 tutorial videos and 8 feedback videos: -”””” £270

Compass Package: .”%”…Over 60 tutorial videos and 4 feedback videos: .’. £210

Focus Package: ..…...–.””’..Over 30 tutorial videos and 4 feedback videos: ” ”’‘ £160

How long is each video? How long are the feedback videos?

I was wondering, how about offering it in bits, say £X per video, and £Y per feedback video. I mean, if I could send one of my tunes to an expert, for a reasonable sum, and get some detailed feedback including a few actual examples of improvements and how to achieve them, that would be pretty interesting.
Hi Funken,

That is a great suggestion and one we are considering putting together. The area you have cut and paste contains links to more information about those courses if you would like to find out more. The Complete Package has a running time of just over 11 hours, the Focus Package around half that.

The closest we currently off to your suggestion is the Focus, it allows students to pick the subjects they want to study and we compile a set of specific videos & projects for them with feedback videos and online chat sessions.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your interest.

Keith

Damn dorks and their high fives.

Ooops, too slow!
I decided to buy the review - it was like 99p and I can put it in the CV, or it can hang around on a hard drive unopened for a few years or whatever... but it was worth every penny

Pardon the self promotion but I have done a few Ableton tutorials and they are all free.

Gate sidechaining seems to be popular http://thedspproject.com/gate-sidechaining

and this week did one on how to get momentary controls on the launchpad and switch between the native behavior and Automap on the fly. http://thedspproject.com/novation-launc ... ration-pt1

If you like them there are more on the site, plus I do a new video every week.

Thanks

Really nice tutorial, Rupert!
You should send that launchpad-reset-bug when going out of midimap-mode to ableton ... maybe they can implement a 'lock'-feature so that you can keep the LP in automap-mode.

Thanks, I have asked the Novation guys to see if they can help first. But I know they are flat out with the new dicer thing. If it turns out its an ableton issue I will go to them to see what can be done.

Great tutorial, I like! Lots more please!

I wanna know how to get my sounds beefed up to a pro level. Can you show us how to do that? Im told my sounds are too weak, especially the drums.

Awesome glad you like them, and dont worry there is lots more to come! As I say I do a video every week, tho its not all tutorials I do gear reviews, interviews and whatever.

I have had a few questions about drums so I will be doing a video if not a few on that in the future. Although right now Ive got alot of kit I need to review as I have to give it back on a deadline (including the LP saddly), so I have to get them all out the way first.

Im still working hard to improve the show so feel free to keep the feedback and questions coming.

Cheers

Hi BoxDJ

any chance you could elaborate on what your problem was? We are actually really grateful for any feedback. i.e. which titles you bought and what you felt they lacked?

You can PM me if you would prefer. You would have no problem getting your money back either, just send them an email.

cheers

funken wrote:well, as an impartial, not very rich, relative newbie, the Groove 3 drum tutorial was excellent, worth £20.00. The only thing I would say is I would like a bit more on how to get beefier sounds. Obviously that would take a whole tutorial, maybe its covered in the others.
Hi Funken, when you say "beefier" sounds, can you please elaborate? I'm currently on an Operator title, and I'll be making some drums and bass sounds in there somewhere, I'm more than happy to dedicate something to you! ;-) Give me some specifics of what you are feeling you would like to know and i'll incorporate it somehow... like in the kick/bass videos or something

cheers
