After, initially, having a problem getting my purchased and downloaded version of this tutorial to play in N.E.D. on my MacBook Pro, a quick note to MPV Support had the issue sorted out very quickly. Now I can say that, if you own, or are thinking of getting, an Arturia Drumbrute, this course has all the info you'll need to get you up to speed in no time. I enjoy Multiplier's enthusiastic teaching style.
