Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing and printing musical notation, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
…Before we move on to working with real instruments, I want to…take a look at one more advantage of working with software instruments.…I've opened up the Edit Software Track project…file and I have the Piano region selected.…Now I spent a good amount of time down here…in the Editor and we've seen how we can do…all kinds of edits like moving notes around, adding them,…deleting them, changing their length and position and so on.…But if you're someone who can actually read music, you might…find it frustrating to look at all of these dots and dashes…in the piano roll like this.…Fortunately, there's another view available…by clicking the Score button here.…
And as you can see, this takes the…region and displays it in an actual notation view.…So now I can put my cursor back at the beginning…and see exactly what chords I'm playing as the song's playing.…And that works for any software instrument region I select.…Here's the base and this isn't just a static display.…You can change the notes here, just like you can in the piano roll deal.…
