Logic Pro X gurus Eli Krantzberg and Doug Zangar team together to bring you a dual perspective on one task, creating music scores for film cues in Logic Pro X! Both Eli and Doug work with the same film content, and create their own music scores independently. You'll also see how they each approach and execute their visions separately, giving great insight into the process.

Eli begins the series and welcomes you, giving you a layout of the series and what to expect. Over the course of the series you'll see how both Eli and Doug each approach the same 2 film cues, but in very different ways, achieving the same goal, creating a professional music score for the film.

Since the same 2 film cues are used, there is so much to learn by watching these pros go at it differently, allowing you to make comparisons and pick and choose what techniques and workflows work best for you. You'll see things like initial setup, film review and notes, creating markers, setting tempo, choosing instruments and musical themes, developing the musical structure, building instrumentation, adding effects, mixing, adding automation, and much, much more.

See the individual tutorial descriptions below for more info. If you use Logic Pro X, and are interested in composing for film, this series is not to be missed... Watch

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing a bit of guitar and piano in the mid-60’s as a small child. Nothing really stuck until my first electric guitar and ensuing garage band in high school. By my last year of high school I was studying jazz guitar and the music bug had bitten.

2. What training have you had?

I went on to get a BFA in music (magna cum laude) from Cornish College of the Arts, emphasizing jazz guitar. Faculty at that time included Gary Peacock, Art Lande and Marius Nordal. I also completed the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, where I studied with Hummie Mann. Additionally, I have become a certified trainer for Apple’s Logic Pro software on versions 6, 7, and 8.

3. When did you get into recording?

My first home recording gear was purchased in the mid ‘80s. It consisted of a Tascam Porta One and a Roland 505 drum machine. By the late 80’s the Atari 1040 ST and Logic’s predecessor, Notator 2.0 were purchased. Digital audio didn’t arrive at the home studio until the early ‘90’s, with Digidesign’s Session 8.

4. People you have worked with/for?

My professional career has included working with Pavarotti, Vic Damone and Diahann Carroll. I have written music for commercials on television and radio and scored independent films. Studio work includes performing on as well as arranging and producing many CD projects. I have also helped many Seattle area musicians work with Logic.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I draw from my formal education, 4 years of running the Seattle Logic User Group, over 20 years of teaching music at the community college level and 30 years real-world experience working in the music business to give you a lot of insights and tips and tricks on how to use Logic to help create and refine your work.
