This course gave me a working knowledge of the many parameters of a DAW. I really have a base knowledge to continue my studies and not get frustrated with mental blocks in navigation of the software.
WOW, Awesome course Loudon! I'm learning lots of stuff I never knew, very much in depth and it takes me to the source of things I already knew but ignored where they generated from. Love it!

Overall I felt this to be an excellent course, covering many aspects of Music Technology, in sufficient detail for students to gain a basic all round understanding of the subject.

A well established & detailed class about music tech its very much opened my mind to the DAW and how it can apply for my own sound design. :^J

Great foundational course. Lectures and content well curated and presented. Coursework is lacking imagination somewhat

Very great course , will recommend it to everybody who wants to learn more about music production tech.

An excellent course. Just need to talk a little bit about mastering to be absolutely perfect. Congrats
A great and detailed explanation of the basics of sound and instruments required for music production.

Great stuff! But can go a bit more into depth about music production itself.

Presentations are annoying. Information is wonderful.

It is a great course, broad and practical at the same time. You might have some trouble getting the key concepts out form the instructor´s speech, but the overall course is great.

Thought it would be deeper and more interesting things or hints, however it's just a technical course, to understand the basis of stuff i use everyday :)

I believe that this was an extremely informative course, but the presenter could have spoken less than he did. I felt he was too verbose.
Mr. Stearns would be very helpful in a classroom; he speaks at length about these concepts, and he would definitely benefit from the in-person aspect of these lessons. However, his lessons often would include him talking at length about these concepts, but never really *saying* anything. I would find myself reading the transcript rather than the video, because there was no visual stimulation or practical examples for these lessons.
If anything, I believe a course like this would much benefit from more real-world examples. Maybe having more examples in a DAW, or plugging in a guitar and showing how each effect changes the instrument's tone rather than just showing a pre-recorded song and saying "This thing does this thing".
Despite all of the negativity I wrote on this review, however, this course really did help me pursue my passion for music. I did learn a lot about audio design, but it took me longer than I expected I did. If I ever came off as rude during this review, please forgive me. It was not my intention.
