Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from A Must Have For Composers that use Logic X as their DAW I reluctantly purchased this . I was skeptical but Doug Zangar is an amazing teacher. This is a great fusion of the concepts work flows and must know how about the score editor. Vol 1. starts with the elementary and builds up through the volumes to a professional level. I am a sibelius user but resent how clumsy and behind the curve Pro Tools is with this aspect of connectivity of DAW to Engraving I decided to use Logic as my secondary DAW. Enjoy

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Logic Score Editor Logic is not my main sequencer, but I had to learn its Score Editor to teach a speficic university module. These videos and the subsequent volumes 2 and 3 have proven invaluable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent teaching and in-depth information I just bought the download version, but im watching online.. im already at the 3rd video and I can say that it's the best investment I've made. I saw 3/4 of the Score Editor tutorial from MacProVideo and the depth of the content in this 30$ download is wayyy higher. It will not leave you thirsty for missing info, and I've already solved an issue I had and I just started watching. Very detailed and thats how a tutorial should be. Thank you for your professionalism.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Indepth tutorial I don't do much in score editing, so this took me awhile to get through. This is one of those tutorials that has so much good information, I'll have to go back to over and over again. It's so very comprehensive. Doug covers practically every detail and there's much to learn from this that I couldn't digest in one viewing. Definitely a BIG BANG for your buck. Just a great tutorial. Thank you.
