Ideal tutorial to get you started

Tutorial is decent. Stripped back and easy to follow along. It's amazing how simple things are when you see the videos.
I personally used Ableton even though Allan used Logic for this one and i haven't had any issues understanding or transferring the same principles.

Great acid tutorial

Yet again another amazing in depth tutorial by Allan, he really explains in a easy to understand way on the basics and the technical side of creating pro sounding acids I used this to make acid lines in my uplifting trance track and it was easy to get to fit in perfectly, the presets that come with this are worth the purchase alone! Highly recommend
