  1. 5/5

    I would not have made it to first base without the tutorial. Sometimes you will feel he is not explaining the whole process- but he is actually covering topics in the order of the manual. Do what he does; NOT what you want to do! And it will all come together.

    Songwriters can often have a challenge recording vocals and the instrument at separate times. I wish he had shown a bit more real life (me) kind of stuff. When you record guitar and vocals at the same time- panning, for example, is an issue. Tip: It’s not as simple as left and right; because some guitar is on the vocal and some vocal may be on the guitar- you might need to pan both to the left-ish side to find the middle with your hearing! Let the Force be your guide. . .

    I started from scratch, technologically cursed and am having some success. I see the light at the end of the tunnel thanks to this tutorial.

  2. 5/5

    I got this video after purchasing a DP-02 from Guitar Center and not knowing how to use it. I was skeptical about the DVD and especially didn’t want to pay $30 for something that would take up my time and not get me very far. Let me just say it was well worth it. The chapters on mixing and mastering, and how to use with a computer are great. The guy who does it all is very knowledgeable and has a cool Australian accent. You also learn other tactics to recording which are not directly connected to the DP-02. It is somewhat fast paced to fit a lot in, but is fine for going over until you get the hang of everything (using buttons in sequence, auto punch, etc). This video did exactly what I needed and I’ve been using this recorder and making music with it for over a year now, and almost never had to look anywhere else for instruction. Highly recommend!!
