Logic scoring thru step entry input with midi keyboard.

Hey there, I'm still trying to understand scoring from scratch using Logic. MPV has told me to look at Logic 303: TNT1, but there Steve H. is just entering monophonic notes in realtime, then fixing the results. The step input keyboard doesn't have rests apparently, and the 'step input mode using Key Commands' just has one item, "rest" - what about various durations? (I'm sorry to admit that I'm having trouble setting a key command anyhow.) Or should rests come from the partboxes? How best to position the notehead according to the bar's sub-beat increments? How do you change the rhythmic value of an entered step-input note? If, for example in a guitar 'chord-melody' composition, you don't clearly have distinct voices but yet you have various polyphonic combinations of notes, how do you enter these, especially in combinations with rests? Please make your tech support work for me so that I don't decide to cancel my subscription in frustration. In my opinion, at least one of your Logic tuts should really facilitate a musician's desire to compose in the traditional sense. Thanks, Lorens.Reply
