Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great Tutorial!! The entire 3 volume series of the Logic Pro X score editor is extremely helpful! I'm a composer and music teacher, and I already prefer Logic as my main DAW, but this tutorial eliminates the need to go to a different program to create scores, transcriptions, and lead sheets. Logic is a very competent DAW for the all-around musician. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
