Smart Controls offer more than I thought
I find this series very useful, because I want to map my midi controls to all kind of controls in Logic Pro X. I knew the basics of doing this, but after watching this series, I got a lot more idea's of how I can use these smart controls. It really showed me some things I did not know about before. A lot of practical examples are given which is great. So I really think it is worth your time watching this series. One minor point is that I did find it sometimes go a bit to fast without a proper introduction about what was going on. So sometimes I could not follow it precisely or only after a while. So that is why I did not give it 5 stars, but other than that, I think it is great and worth your time.
