Section 1: Section 1: Opening Bitwig for the First Time
This intro to Bitwig was fantastic. Great pace and progression, clear and well-planned instruction from start to finish. I've had very little experience with DAWs and I followed this all the way through without getting lost. Nicely done!

This is a really good explanation of all the features that Bitwig has to offer and gives you all the information to start working with Bitwig. Since I got interested in Bitwig after using Ableton for years, this was exactly the type of guidance I was looking for and I can recommend it to everyone, for both beginner and experienced producers.

Good introduction to Bitwig. Points covered are explained in a manner that's easy to understand. Unfortunately, it doesn't cover how you can arrange external vocals or instruments through Bitwig, which is my main interest.

Coming from Ableton and having already played around with Bitwig quite a bit before getting around to completing this course I thought I had a good grasp of the tools and interface of Bitwig. This course has helped me uncover super useful parts of the Bitwig interface and workflow that I might have gone years without discovering. Great pacing and very thorough explanation of the main aspects of the DAW with fun, relatable example songs to play along with. Looking to move onto some of the more advanced courses that Thavius offers.

This course made it possible for me to use the Bitwig DAW that came with a keyboard I purchased. I had watched a lot of videos but they mostly assumed I already knew how to use a DAW, and/or were so fast and densely detailed that they were literally useless.
In this course all of the basics are covered in a meaningful order. Generality and detail are balanced perfectly for the novice - each category is covered well enough to use and in enough detail to show a variety of practical applications without being bogged down by irrelevant (to the beginner) detail. The pace is measured and easy to follow. Important facts are highlit and repeated enough to help them stick.
Thavius Beck is clearly knowledgeable with a natural and contagious enthusiasm. He has a great voice that is easy to understand and enjoyable to listen to. I highly reccomend this course.

Very good course by a great teacher! What it says on the tin really :) It's quite dense in information so to practice everything on my own it took me a couple of days to complete.

Finished the course while building my own songs and I've been thoroughly impressed. Great Work!
