Logic began life as a program called C-Lab Notator (1987) for the Atari ST, and it quickly became the darling of music producers everywhere. One of Notator's key features was the Score Editor, an editing window that used a musical score and actual notes to let traditionally trained musicians “score” music just as they would in the real world, with pen and paper (hence the name Notator). However, most of the people making music then, as now, did not come from a traditional music background. So the creator of Notator, Gerhard Lengeling (the author of this book's foreword), cleverly included what would become the primary MIDI editor in not only Logic, but also every audio production program since the introduction of Notator: the Matrix Editor.
