Start making music with the powerful, intuitive controls in Studio One and with these lessons from producer and remixer Josh Harris. Josh begins with a tour of Studio One’s Start Page, the creative hub of the program, where you set up your artist profile and audio devices. He then shows you how to set up and start recording a new song, including punching in and using track layers. The course then moves into editing audio and MIDI, where Josh explains the most important of the editing functions: comping, trimming and time stretching audio, quantizing MIDI, and editing MIDI velocities. He also covers mixing with effects and chains, showing how to speed up the process with presets and automation, and explores Studio One’s unique feature set used to master your recordings. The course wraps with tips to connect with your audience and share your music with the world, including publishing to SoundCloud, promoting songs on the Nimbit Store, and using PreSonus Exchange.

    well, i always welcome tutorials, but unless the narrator covers some stuff he did in the above videos in detail, i must say that he shows the whole stuff he wants you to learn in a way too cumberome way. mostly all the stuff he covers above can be done way easier and way faster, beginning from the edits, over how to add fx returns and sends, ending up on how to set up busses for tracks . if someone watches these tutorials coming from another sequencer, he might not grasp the sheer benefit of studio one at all. no harm meant, just sayin’…

    i always used logic pro 9 and komplete 8, but when i bought the presonus mixer 16.4.2 and i got studio one 2 with it at first i was trying it out but once i started to get to know the interface more, i am really liking studio one and it is becoming one of my major sound recording and mixing software, i loved the mixer so much and now the software is really getting into me as well, well done presonus , way to go. i hope you always keep on bringing good softwares and good quality equipments, but the most important thing to me is customer service, not like other companies when they got really know and into the market they started discontinuing products and they do not support drivers for updated operating systems and they do not answer your email and they rely on the strategy of not making new drivers in order to sell their new equipments and this is really bad for the company, and the equipments i am mentioning is like 2 or 3 years old, i am not talking about 5 or 6 years old equipments, but they should know that we as customers and users, when we buy an expensive item, we really are buying it for at least 5 years, it is very bad to discontinue the support of an expensive item in order to sell another one, and i really feel that presonus is not going to go this way, hope so
