In the last three months I’ve had the following placements. In every single one of them, I’ve used the Monitor Station. Don’t let your creations leave the studio without using it!

As an independent engineer/producer since the pre-DAW era, I had the opportunity to see the development of the modern-day DAWs. Some had all the bells and whistles but sounded terrible. I have learned so many through the sessions I’ve worked, and I am so excited about PreSonus Studio One 2.5 ! The sound of 64-bit processing and the extensive native plugins put a smile on my analog face every at session.
PreSonus LIVE Airs Thursday | Using Studio One Plug-ins Live | 2 p.m. CST / 3 p.m. EST / Noon PST / GMT -6
Join Justin Spence as he presents a few tricks on using plug-ins in Studio One at your live shows.
My new CD, Mixture, was recorded with Studio One 2.5, has spent five weeks on the CMJ top 40 charts, peaking at number 9 alongside other jazz greats like Lee Rittenour, Chick Corea, Marcus Miller and Diana Krall. We’re getting many great reviews!
One of the powerful tools we used in producing this record is the PreSonus Studio One. My co-writer and co-producer Tom Rule used Studio One for his demo keyboard tracks at his home studio. When we brought the tracks in to my pro studio, Shadow Sound Studio, to finish adding real instruments and mix and master, I fell in love with many of the sounds included with of Studio One. In particular, we loved the stand-up bass sound that shipped with Studio One so much, that we actually left it on the record and never had a live bass player come and replace the MIDI. I have now made Studio One part of my studio tools and of course use PreSonus for my jazz band’s live performances.
UPDATE: We’ve got a killer new video on this very subject. The original blog post follows after this video:
As a Studio One user, you’re well aware that SoundCloud® has rapidly turned into the “YouTube of music discovery.” We’ve offered the capability to upload directly to SoundCloud from Studio One since version 1.1, and chances are, you probably already have music available for streaming from your SoundCloud account.
Streaming is nice, but did you also know that you can add a “buy” button to your SoundCloud player? All you need is music available for sale in your free Nimbit account, and you’re ready to sell to the millions of fans who listen music on SoundCloud every day.
Hmm…SoundCloud and Nimbit, what a coincidence… Starting with version 2.0.6, Studio One can now also upload your music to Nimbit.
Here’s how to add “Buy” buttons for your songs on SoundCloud that are available for sale on Nimbit:
1. Get the deep link for the track you want to sell from your Nimbit store by visiting your store, clicking the share button between the play button and track name, and copying the link that appears.
2. Now, go to your track on SoundCloud that you want to sell, and click the edit button. It looks like a Pencil.
4. Paste your Nimbit Link in the “Buy link” field
5. Your SoundCloud Player will now display a Buy Button, check it out below. I’ve embedded the actual player for the track I used in this demo so you can see for yourself. For the purpose of the demo, I set the price for this track to free, but you can set the price in Nimbit to whatever you want or to “Name Your Price” to let fans pay what they want.
Watch the video below to learn more about Nimbit.
