This piece was recommended to me, and a Vocalist / Guitarist, who wanted to do more with my music. It took me awhile as the thought of learning a daw unline others I have used, and essentially learning a new instrument. For me, I took a couple of master classes online to get the ball rolling. Amazing device.
