Good stuff. Certainly gave me a new perspective on how to use RX in ways that I had not imagined. Definitely added new possibilities for my sound creation. A lot of the examples in the course ended up being similar in genre/style, but the concepts were nonetheless to appreciated.

Admittedly a bit of a niche market course, but still a solid introduction to basics of field recording and found sound manipulation. Now that the recording part has been covered, I'm looking forward to a course focusing more in the actual processing and mangling aspects.
