Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great course! It's very clear, to the point, and based on very practical applications. I'm being a little picky and taking off half a star as, while overall I think the content is still very much relevant to current versions of Logic Pro X, the fact that this course is done on Logic 9 does make it feel a bit dated.
