I just got my whole system last week at the same time the DVD arrived by mail. While it is VERY corny, it also helped me get started. Frankly it was better than manual, which is not made for dummies like me. Thanks DIGI.

It's funny because the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the thread topic was "corny", in reference to the DVD. Most home studio Pro Tools DVD's are corn to the max. I remember the 001 DVD - there was something very special and secret going on between those two guys... (totally joking).

The new features DVD was not at all cheeze. Neither was the HD DVD.

I wonder why us budget users are subjected to the corniness? Is this some market research strategy?!? HAHAHA

All in all though, there is some great, useful product info hidden deep (very deep) underneath the fromage.

Yeah, I found it a bit embarrasing. It seems like a demo video for a digidesign product would be really easly to do. There are so many celebrities and pros who use it. Couldn't they just interview some of those people and have them give out the useful tips?

As it is, it made me feel like I was using a gimiky product.

I guess I should just respect them for trying something differant.

I got it two weeks ago and though 'well, they've put in some effort, but Bill and Ted's Crazy 001 Adventure video was better'.

While they are corny, I think the point Digi try to make with the LE DVDs is their gear can be used to get a professional sound in completely non-professional situations. In the latest DVD the 'Salvation' song is tracked in 2 different living rooms plus the drummer's spare room...none of these are really studios as such. Things like DigiDelivery are integrated well into the story to get around the fact they've got 2 days and no money to get the bugger recorded and their DJ is in LA and their bassist/vocalist won't play during the day.

So in a way it's all very clever by putting everything into a very real context, the problem is that establishing storylines takes time and has very little to do with ProTools or its use. With the 001 video there was very little of what - hey, I'm gettin' some mates over and we're recordin' a song in my living room - checkit!' and then it's straight into the gear and software. Things like who does the A&R girl wanna get with kinda detracts from the point.

Personally I thought the HD DVD, with the likes of Steve Vai, Michael Bradford and that Herbie guy demonstrating their favourite bits works really well. Surely there are enough working musos with LE systems who could lend their 2 cents.

The DVD is PURE CHEDDAR. I had to keep checking my watch to make sure it wasn't 4:30am and I was watching a cheesy info-mercial while knee-deep in a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. I was waiting for that english chap with the bowtie to pop out and say "order now and get a free set of non-stick ass hair tweezers" or something of the like. C'mon DIGI, spend some of our money on celebrity spokespeople who can give us some real life industry insight, not some community college drama club ass clowns that don't know a plug-in from a butt-plug.

Default Re: So who has the new LE DVD?

i agree with all the comments so far
a) cheeze factor = astronomical & embarassing
b) technical value = low/moderate
c) why not a more educational video????

and while on that topic -- what's the likelihood of some of you real pros splicing together an educational video...here's a thought:

1) search through the DUC for some of the most FAQs
2) assign them to 5-10 of you "power players"
3) record a video segment "how-to"
4) burn to DVD with a selectable directory, e.g.:

CHAPTER 1 -- getting started:
how to turn the thing on
basic structure
etc.

CHAPTER 2 -- recording your first song:
recording audio
recording midi
bussing for dummies

CHAPTER 3 -- sweetness:
the wonderful world of plugins

CHAPTER 4 -- the hard part musicians usually don't get:
basic editing
mixing

CHAPTER 5 -- the harder part...:
mastering

CHAPTER 6 -- distribution:
burning to CD
mp3's for the web
digi's on-line distrubution & sharing portal
etc.

are there 1000 users here? would 1000 users be willing to pay $25.00 for a training dvd? if so, there'd be a pool of $25K for down & dirty recording, burning to dvd and distribution.

i dunno -- during the day, i'm director of learning at a local insurance company -- this is the kind of stuff i do when i'm not dreaming about being a great musician/engineer

what do you think?

I would pay for that. But they did have a tech part on the DVD and I saw how easy busing was. I never tried it before. With that who needs a high powered PPC? for plugs. Ok I still do. But I still recomend that everybody who plans to get LE, order the DVD.
