The three introduction classes kick off the bundle to give you an overview of how the software works, while the Warping & Automation and Essential Features guides show you how to execute more advanced tricks. Finally, the two-part Music Theory & Songwriting lectures help you hone your musical masterpiece with technical and structural guidance to help your work really pop.
