One of the best courses I've taken on here, because it was so concise and a relatively short tutorial for how useful it is. Very clear and efficient, awesome instructor. The only thing I wanted to know was how to route the click to the drummer live in a performance setting with live drums and tracks.
Nice video series, short and to the point. DJ Kiva has a great on screen personality.
Very clear, straight to the point explanations, delivered at a perfect pace in an entertaining way. Good job! I really enjoyed it!
