Well done Bryan, this is a solid tutorial. I'm a good way through it and your content, course flow, and teaching delivery are consistently on-point, and there several instances throughout where you provide extra bits of insight, very cool o' you to do so.
Oh, and since I see this question/issue pop up in many a Sonic Academy tutorial comment section, let me share that Ableton is not my 'native DAW language'. I started my in-the-box production with Cubase but have been a dedicated Pro Tools user for the last 9 years. Ableton and Pro Tools have a number of 'optimal' workflow differences--just go check out the slogfest about this over at Gearslutz. Or not.
Yet, I am having NO trouble at all following along with the coursework here. None.
I joined Sonic Academy 7 months ago and also got Ableton at that time, and have been using SA's How To Make series to learn Ableton from scratch. Let me tell you that that was a real good idea...
