We multi-tracked the entire show via the Studio Live 24.4.2 into Capture. Great care was taken on ensure that the instrument sources all sounded top notch (drums, bass, guitar, keys) and appropriate mics and DIs were used to capture the sounds of the instruments.
Drum mics were as follows:
For post-production (mixing and mastering) we used Studio One, and things were kept pretty simple as the performances and sounds were good at the source. I’m not a “fix it in the mix” type of engineer, so the sounds have to be great to begin with. Also we didn’t use any drum samples whatsoever. The drums sounded great and basic EQing (cut some of the boxey mids) and slight compression (just a hint, 2:1 with slow attack to keep the bass response) were used on the drums, and that’s it. Guitars were plugged straight into the Fractal AXE FX2, bass and keys ran DI. The XMAX preamps on the StudioLive are so good that it helped the mix come together pretty quick!
There’s nothing short of a wealth of resources online for learning about Studio One. John Mlynczak recently compiled this great list of online educational resources from Lynda.Com, Groove3, Berklee School of Music, and more. It’s also available on MusicEd.PreSonus.Com, but we thought the whole PreSonus community should be aware of ’em as well.
There’s some great info here that is available in many platforms, including books, videos, and entire online courses. These include options for every user, regardless of your level of experience with Studio One. Maybe you’re a seasoned producer who’s looking to dig deep? Perhaps you recently upgraded Studio One and want to learn more about the new features you’ve gotten access to? Maybe you’re just starting out? No matter your level of experience with Studio One, there’s valuable information in here for you!

[I noticed a jovial exchange between two of our most vocal advocates on Twitter, @BSWorship and @RayManuelMuzik. Both are diehard Studio One junkies, and in discussing our software via Tweet, the two decided to collaborate on a remix of Brandon Scott’s “Do You Love Me?” The original track and remix are both available here for your listening pleasure, and the two artists were kind enough to spare a couple paragraphs about their experience.]
“So, what happened was Ray heard my song “Do You Love Me” thought he could do a killer remix on the song that I could add as a bonus track to the EP coming out July 4th. We met on twitter through PreSonus releasing my new endorsed artist article. I listened to what Ray was doing himself in Studio One and thought, “I don’t listen to much Latin music, but his stuff is really good and sounds great! If he wants to have a go at making a remix of one of my songs, then I’d be honored to have him be a part of it!” So, we started talking more and more via Twitter (I never have met him in my life, FYI) and just hit it off. I stemmed out the mixes of each instrument for my song, dropped it in DropBox and he was good to go. Studio One makes online collaborating so easy it’s sick! I love how simple it is to send files to others around the world to collaborate on amazing music! Music is what we feel, it moves us, and Studio One is the software that will move you into making amazing music with others around the world. It really is the game changer to music as we know it.”
Here’s Brandon’s original song:
“Brandon is pretty much in the ball park! We became friends because of how much we love Studio One and became good Twitter friends— its all about #TeamPreSonus! We decided to collaborate and make something crazy happen since sharing session and stems with Studio One is so easy. Studio One is the best DAW because we can do everything in one place; producing, recording, mixing, mastering, and beyond—even uploading the music to the Internet! I actually got rid of all my other DAWs. Brandon and I just became PreSonus buddies and we are happy to share our music, our talents and our culture, using Studio One as our platform to make it happen! Like Brandon says, Studio One is a game changer. It definitely changed my approach—and speed—to making music.”
Here’s RayManuel’s remix:

[We decided it best to give some recognition to our more vocal advocates—and what better way than via a blog series?]
Who are you, where are you, and what do you do?
Rhett Mouton: Producer, engineer, writer/composer.
How were you introduced to PreSonus?
Years ago I was asked by a young band to go to their rehearsal studio to help them record a song. That rehearsal studio turned out to be in Jim Odom’s back yard.
What PreSonus software/hardware do you use and for what purpose?
I use the Central Station for monitoring, ADL 600 for obvious reasons, StudioLive 24.4.2 for live sound and multitracking, Studio One 2 Professional for writing, composing, producing, mixing and mastering.
What’s so great about PreSonus, anyhow?
They always seem to be thinking a step ahead of the curve when developing new products.
What’s the last big project that you worked on using PreSonus gear?
I produced, mixed, and mastered a band called Meriwether’s debut album titled, “Make Your Move” which resulted in a distribution deal and record deal with Suretone/Interscope records.
What are you working on now—or next?
I am currently mixing and mastering projects for clients. I am also composing/writing original music with the intention of licensing for placement in film, television and video games.
