Learn essential skills for scoring video and film in this comprehensive tutorial by Steve H, a man with over 20 years of experience in making music for moving pictures.
Hi, Steve H here. I'd like to tell you about this tutorial, Logic’s Music-for-Picture Toolbox!
Film/video scoring is a skill that many composers need to master if they want to be competitive in this crazy world of music!
Every day, all around the world, there are thousands of cable TV and internet channels producing tons of video content that ALL need music and sound. However, before you can dig in and start composing for picture there are concepts you’ve got to understand and tools you need to know how to use.
In this second tutorial of my Logic’s ToolBox series, I demystify the relationship of time, tempo, and frame rates. I thoroughly explain SMPTE and video synchronization. I show you how to beat map “Hit” points and make all your beats line up with the picture. I reveal the best ways to import the video’s audio into Logic’s arrange page without worrying about losing synchronization. Even better, I share many of my film scoring “secrets” and take you on a compositional journey showing how I dream up my musical scores and turn them into final TV-ready productions... and that’s just the beginning!
As a bonus, I’m Including a free QT movie complete with visual time code for you to sync and compose to and some of my Logic project files to explore!
You know, I’ve been scoring to video for most of my musical life including many award winning films and TV series and it brings me great pleasure to share my Music-for-Picture knowledge my macProVideo friends!
So if you're new to film scoring this tutorial will start you on your way to a whole new dimension in your career. If you’re a professional film scorer this tutorial will give you some technical tips and tricks to help you perfect your skills.

This was a fantastic tutorial. Is there any chance a similar one is in the works for Logic Pro X?
Excellent instruction! One of the best here on MPV. Instructor is very knowledgable and takes the time to really break things down.
This tutorial saves me a lot of time on the scoring work flow. thanks!
This course directly reinforced a college course and for most objectives introduced multiple alternate methods to achieve the same results.
Steve H! The man! Love this guy. His tutorials are a pleasure to watch. This was a great intro to film scoring in Logic and as an added bonus he always manages to fill in some little Logic knowledge gaps along the way.
Steve H is not only a very nice guy, he is really an amazing teacher... Please, I am waiting for a second part more focused on the process of scoring!! Please!!!
The videos I've always been waiting for. Thank you, very well done, Mr Horelick!
This video was very informative and useful as all the video tutorials I purchased from MacPro. It accelerated the learning process up while reducing the frustrations of trying to find key features in the instruction manual. Thanks MacPro Video Gary
This video kiss A#@ ! Steve gives many examples on work flow & tool & tips .
sitting in a bar on a boat across the mideterranean sea way home with the blu sight on right hand and peaple talking about revolution in background ...while watching steve h teaching this tutorial is more magical than this atmosfere ... and i guess i have to watch it again to get rid of that WOAW effect of the first time and start focusing on that big amount of precious informations ... As far as i go watching steve h tutorials i realise that i'm felling like the guy who found the big love and as days pass by he gets absolutely convinced that it's just what he was looking for the whole life. form tunisia with love
I recently got a call from a filmmaker who wanted me to compose some music for his film and I had to learn how to use Logic's music-for-picture feature quickly. This tutorial helped me to do just that. Concepts are explained clearly and simply and the video is filled with all kinds of cool tips to help facilitate your work. I would highly recommend this tutorial to anyone who wants to learn how to score music for film.
Was recommended this tutorial by Mr Nathan Palmer, a few reviews below, and I totally agree with him. Steve H you are the man!! As an absolute amateur in the field of music-to-picture these tutorials have proved invaluable. Showing features that will dramatically improve any of your projects. A must have for any would be composers. Keep up the good work Steve and Igor.
I needed to write some original music for a trailer I made for the Judo club of my son. Well..... I was up and running within an hour. Manager and trainers of the club complimented me with the result. Very happy again, thank's to Steve H. Greetings, Huub
Fantastic tutorial! All of the details people need to seriously start writing music to picture. The combination of priceless tips and tricks along with a vast amount of technical detail under a an easy going atmosphere meant that my attention was captured and simply undivided. I would purchase all of Horelick's tutorials if i wasn't a poor student! For now though i will continue to watch this tutorial over and over again until my eyes hurt. Thanks Steve
Excellent tutorial. Its delivered at a pace that sometimes challenges the attention span (but no doubt perfect for absolute newbies) and it's a bit overwrought on the bedside–chat-gee whiz-let's-nurture-you-through-this tone ( the jokes sound scripted and are delivered all too earnestly…) but hey, those are relatively nit picky. The big stuff is there: solid knowledge, a genuinely amiable tone that makes it easy to keep watching and a good variety of examples. Yep. Two thumbs up.
Thank you for a wonderful and well presented video tutorial. A long-time user of other DAW's, I have learned a lot about using Logic and how to teach it.There were lot's of well timed high points and great examples. Thanks. Best regards to Steve H. and Igor!
Great tutorial not only for Logic, but for Film Scoring techniques also. I would like to see more film scoring, arranging tutorials from this guy, although this is a macprovideo.com and not musicprovideo.com
As an Apple Certified Logic Pro 9 Trainer, i am very particular about each training method i come across. I must say Steve Horelick has an excellent understanding of the Logic Pro application and a good presentation technique.Informative and Entertaining, well done Steve.
This was really quite good, but I was hoping for more information about the score editor for writing music for musician to play to record for picture. But maybe there is already a tutorial on that?
Great stuff here ! I have never worked with film before and now I'm having at it with Steve s great new tutorial. Everyone hates the little details until you need them to put it all together and Music-for-Picture Toolbox has made a dummy like me actually able to score a movie ! Hear that Disney call me ...555-5555 ....
There is a lot of great stuff in this tutorial. It is a little chatty, but that won't stop me from giving it 5 stars. I agree that a Part II would be welcome!
Another great, enjoyable Tutorial from Steve H. Things i knew, things i didn't, better ways to do things i am already doing. I have purchased lots of MPV Tutorials over the years and honestly, if i learn just ONE thing from any of them (and of course i always learn more than that) these Tutorials are more than worth the small cost. If only to hear Steve make the kind of lame but lovable jokes my Dad makes. For perspective, my Dad is 80. And i second Dave Duffus' thought for a "Part 2". It would be very welcome
Steve H is brilliant as always. I'd love to see a "part 2" go even further, delving into techniques for dialogue replacement, industry standards for film/video/DVD mixing levels and workflow with Final Cut Pro and SoundTrack Pro (boy, have I learned a few nasty lessons the hard way there). But the best part... the Uranus pun, as predictable as it was, gave me the biggest belly-laugh I've had in a long time. Took me five minutes to recompose myself. :-)
I thought this tutorial series was right on. It had lots of good info about stuff I didn't know how to do, and also stuff I didn't know I didn't know. The methodology was clear and pretty bombproof and I just used it scoring a documentary. Major highlights: tempos, and how to derive them using the tempo ops. including beat mapping to scenes. MIDI hits synced to SMPTE markers using the event list. one cue per project - this was amazing, and much easier than I thought it would be, and way better than battling with everything in one project. excellent.
I feel like I went from 0 to Hero with this tutorial! Everything was explained beautifully. I was glued to my screen. Another killer tutorial from Steve H!
Overall, this is a really great tutorial. Steve H presents some really great tips that aren't found in the manual or anywhere else.
BRILLIANT!!! That's all I really need to say to be honest. I have several MacProVideo titles but this is the video tutorial I've been waiting for. It was truly worth the wait. Even though I score stuff often, there are so many great tips and ideas on here it has already helped increase the efficiency of my output. Thanks Steve H from Steve G!!
This is by far the best tutorial I have watch from your archives!!! Steve H is an amazing instructor, good sense of humor and real world class musician/trainer skills!!!! This is a must see tutorial!!!!
