Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Nice as always It's clear, straight to the point and concise. On a personal note, i'd like to see more "Film Scoring" oriented videos, with features like "Import Video", "Export to Sibelius" from Pro Tools to Sibelius and so on. My congratulations to you all!!! Stay safe and take care. Best, Sam.
