  • A lot of great info here! Awesome getting to see Beau's workflow and hear his thoughts on the methods he uses. Would love to see him do a class on micing guitars, bass and show his methods in more detail/time. He gets some of the best raw tones in the game. Feel like this was more of a great overview and would like more time for details seeing as he is a very knowledgeable dude. Thanks Beau for the great class and for sharing this info with us.
  • Love Beaus production so I thought I would like this, but this was pretty disappointing. A few good tricks but overall it was almost trying to cater for too large an audience with most the information on the more rudimental side of things, of which there is already so much information out there on these kind of things, for free.
  • The guy who wrote the last review was pretty unfair. I thought the video had great info. Beau has always been really cool about answering questions and communicating with his fans since back when the Saosin forums started. No one forced that reviewer to pay for anything (it was streaming for free), and no one forced him to watch it. Lastly, calling Beau a "has been" is pretty uncalled for, especially coming from a never was. Thanks for the a great class Beau!
