Logic Score Editor

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.

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.
