    Honestly your way of explaining things is very confusing.What you don’t seem to realize is that especially for a beginner (who your videos are directed at according to your website) nothing is “of course” so for instance it’s totally not clear right from the beginning if the folders that can be seen in your user library are ones that *you* created or if they’ve been placed there by default.Also please realize because of resolution, bandwidth etc for some users most of the folder names are hardly readable so nothing really is selfexplanatory.Not hating, just saying.

      Thanks for the feedback. The Ableton Live Insider Tips video series is aimed at users of Ableton Live. Of course, beginners can benefit too, but some concepts might be new and confusing for them.
