Real deal! I've been enjoying a lot all the courses from this series. They are perfect if you are planing to record your band or venture alone. It's worth to pay it rather than watch the crap that is on YouTube.

Very helpful and informative. Would have been nice to have heard a few other microphones instead of the 'industry standard' ones used here. But a great starting point none the less.

Pretty informative. The tuning drums parts were probably the weakest of the entire course however it's not bad starting point.

Great tutorials. A lot of very good information condensed into a very short amount of time. And no annoying "fake-acting" like so many others out there :).

Good intro on recording drums. I really liked the discussion of prepping the drums for recording - tuning, etc. I wish there had been more discussion on recording with less expensive mic kits.
