Had some good insights
Bought this to get an introduction to Miroslav 2. I was especially interessted in how to humanize and edit instrument scores since I had no prior experience in that field and the manual of Miroslav 2 is a bit of a mess for a beginner with the instrument. Would have wished for some more details but as an introduction this course works OK.
