Thanks Trevor - great information. I just bought the Jumpstart series (5 hrs+ of video) for a fraction over £27. The videos look pretty informative - all though it is all in ProTools it looks like 90% of the information is transferable. The screen resolution of the videos is very slightly low, but still very usable.
Now if only somebody could tell me where to get hold of the extra hours in the day that I am desperately looking for!!
