This is a wonderful course. Learned a lot about how drum racks can be used and edit beats appropriately.
Really well done. Learned so much and am excited to get stuck in!
Great course. Covers mainly the basics but there are elements you might not have come across. DJ Kiva has a great way of presenting the info and is passionate (but in a subtle way) about what he does. This makes it more enjoyable to watch and learn.
Like the structure of the course and instructor's workflow. Looking forward to more courses from him.
Great info and instruction. Definitely worth the watch.
