I have been receiving help from James with my Logic Pro programme and have been impressed with his knowledge of the system. It is a complicated area but he is skilled in explaining every aspect clearly and when required, is prepared to go over some a detail any number of times until the point is understood. He certainly deserves a five star rating as far as my experience is concerned. Mal
