[This just in from Dr. Snipe Young, decorated PreSonus Artist/producer/songwriter/engineer/bad-ass. He just wrapped his most recent track, “Shock Your Body,” in Studio One, linked below for you to hear. The good doctor was kind enough to share a bit about the anatomy of the track, and what makes it tick.]
So here goes… I played the main groove live on my Open labs Miko, which has a FireBox 4×4 installed in it. From there I tracked it through a very old, yet warm vintage 24-channel mixer. I then sampled this recording, chopped a nice feeling groove and placed it on the Studio One timeline.
The groove is the backbone of the record, so I built around that with kicks and snares I created to give it a subtle punch and snatch. I then used the groove quantize to lock my bass from Trilian and the drums—It’s still a remarkable feature to me!
My next addition would be to play some guitar licks which were brought alive by the TriComp and Pro EQ. I also added an instance of Beat Delay and set it to echo on the 8th notes, which gives it a small stadium feeling and allows it to lay inside the mix better. Lastly, I just sprinkled on a few chords from a Komplete 8 Ultimate Vintage Rhodes organ, and Philharmonik strings and the pieces to the puzzle all tie together in the end to make a vintage-sounding montage.
We had fun creating this with Studio One Pro 2.5—a tool that a Pro uses!

Hey PreSonus team!
Here’s some incredible insights on music, language, and education from 4-string guru Victor Wooten, which is served alongside his bold, harmonic-heavy rendition of “Amazing Grace.”
Powerful stuff. When I found this I immediately watched it twice in a row. Hope you like it as much as I do.
Do you agree with Victor’s thoughts on music education? Please post your thoughts in the comments section.
Bonus! If that’s not enough Victor for one day, here’s a video of him on the PreSonus stage at NAMM last year alongside Steve Baily and David “Fingers” Haynes at our 2011 NAMM show.
Check it out! Paul just wrapped up this great set of five videos describing the latest and greatest Rational Acoustics technologies that can now be added for FREE to the StudioLive 24.4.2 or 16.4.2 mixer that you already own… or the one you’re thinking about getting.
Try each of these features once, and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.
