It is amazing how exited the author is about Logic's notation cababilities considering how terrible it is compaired to professional notation programs. There is no way a serious music copyist would use Logic. This said, combining Logic's Midi editing features with a professional notation pogram is a great idea, for those that like to play in their parts in real time. The course does not at all cover midi step input, how to re-pitch notes to creat harmony, and other important things. There is also no mention of the terrible desition Apple made when abandoning the global chord symbol track, which added chord symbols automatically by analysing the score. I definitely like Peter's presentation style. Very entertaining.

The course is not bad. If you are new to the score editor you will learn a lot... It's great for beginners. But if you are looking for the advanced stuff it isn't for you.

As is Peter for Logic help, this is the MOST useful (and enjoyable) video series I may have ever watched. As someone who works with sheet music each day and is very comfortable with notation programs, I wanted to learn more about what LOGIC PRO X has in that area. Lo and behold it is a lot, and while I cannot forecast myself switching from my primary notation software for engraving purposes, I now know TONS of tricks that actually help me 'produce' music in LPX. Highest recommendations!

This is such a fantastic course/tutorial. Is so wisely constructed and addresses the the score editor in a concise, clear and practical manner. Most impressive is that he essentially offers the proof of what great work the score editor is capable of. I have more tutorials than I care to mention where the (well meaning) teacher provides the technical knowledge only to not really produce any actual music! He is clearly much more than a computer wiz and great teacher.. at the end of the day he reveals himself to be an outstanding musician and composer who uses the score editor to produce beautiful- pro level scores and gets results that look to my eye as good as or better than any engraving application (which the score editor is not) I music admit that I was intimidated by the score editor- I am very comfortable with notation and love working in Logic but felt I would need to work in a separate application for score notation. Thanks to Maestro Schwarz - I am finding I can do everything and more in Logic X- highly recommended!

This course is packed with great information on the Score Editor. The main aim for me wathcing this course was to learn about tabbing the guitar. However, not everything was addressed in this area. Especially the flexibilty in moving the same note around the fretboard appears problematic. Would also be beneficial to have a pdf of the key commands used. Overall, I have learnt and incredible amount and my confidence in using the Score Editor in Logic Pro X has skyrocketed.

Outstanding. I love this tutorial. And it is clear by the pieces of music used in the examples that Peter is a talented composer. Once again, thank you.

Peter Schwartz does a phenomenal job covering all there is to know on the score editor in the Logic Pro X Software Program.

I am very glad I watched this extensive tutorial, while making notes meanwhile for the parts that seem relevant to the way I intend working with the score editor, including several key commands. Actually, I have never used the score editor (or notation software) before and, while working in the piano roll, I kind of said goodbye to 'formal' musical notation, but not anymore from now on: I look forward to working with it, among other things for having a proper way to have chord symbols and vocal lines and lyrics neatly all together on a printed out sheet. I also see lot of benefits of midi editing within the score editor. A long, intensive course, but very well explained and good to understand. Absolutely worth watching, also when you don't plan using all of the features of the score editor.
