Comments about Down 2 Earth Live Audio Basics DVD:
I had hoped this DVD would be good but unfortunately it was not. It wasted huge amounts of time trying to be funny but it wasn't funny and the humor did nothing to reinforce what was being taught. They breezed through Signal Chain Management (a vital concept) at breakneck speeds and then wasted time with a long lame song about the signal chain that is no help at all. I'm glad I wasn't trying to learn from this... just comparing it to my own live training seminar. I have a 12-year-old sound apprentace and even he thought it was lame.
