Completely agree with the above, I've never read the manual - it's that easy.Not to be rude but if "learning the basics" means getting to this point:

...and then clicking on a block, for example the amp block, to reveal its controls like this below:

...and it took you six months to work that out, that's not really Fractal's fault.
Personally I think the Axe Edit interface is about as intuitive and simple as it could be while still providing all the options it does. On the grid, right-click for block selection menu, then once your blocks are there, draw a simple line for your signal path. To adjust something, click on a block to reveal its controls. The "main" controls are always prominently displayed first, and then if you want to go digging through the other tabs (which are also intelligently organized), you can.
And really, the front panel interface isn't much different.
Much easier than some of the nuances with the Helix - for example two lines, one per DSP? I really don't need to be having to think of what DSP is running what, that's what load balancing in the OS is for!
And again, not wanting to be rude 'why do I need a Leon Todd video to find out how to change the line frequency'? So you bought a pro-level piece of equipment, didn't read the manual, didn't think 'I'll go to the set-up page and see what the options are' etc.? Sorry I find that hard to believe
