I spent 90 minutes watching a video that is less than 40 minutes long, and every minute spent was worth it beyond compare. I started watching it in my lounge, but quickly moved to my studio to really hear what is being explained properly. I learnt a shit load. Thanks Fab

Really nice and practical tutorial about reverbs. Definitely a topic for go deeper "I wish more on that, also with delays" but FAT did it straight to the point and very fun to go thorugh. Also very happy I've got 10/10 in the quiz reverb.
Amazing and very informative this How to listen episode.

"You can hear a fly fart from the other side of the room". Laughing loud :) Seriously though, it was just the gravy on a super-important point for someone like me to hear. Great!
