Start making music with the powerful, intuitive controls in Studio One and 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.
PreSonus Exchange is an online community of Studio One users sharing their own user-created content. To access PreSonus Exchange, I click on the down arrow by the service icon in the browser window and I highlight Exchange. My registered version of Studio One qualifies me to sign in to Exchange. And all I have to do is click on Sign In and it will automatically log me in. As you can see, my Sign In button is grayed out, and I'm already signed in to Exchange. As we take a look at the content within the Exchange folder, you can see that there's a diverse collection of Studio One user-created content. FX Chains, Grooves, macros, presets and sound sets along with some other content. I will choose percussion, from the crisp rap vocals FX Chain. And all I have to do to download it is drag it onto the arrange window. A Transfers window pops up showing my my download progress. I will close it and I will move the percussion user preset right underneath my lead vocal.
I'll highlight my lead vocal, hold down Option or if you're using Windows, Alt and drag down my lead vocal track. I will solo it out and let's take a listen to this FX chain. (MUSIC). I'll deactivate this FX chain, so you can hear what the vocal sounds like by itself, and then, I'll activate it so you can hear the difference. (MUSIC). Next, I'll download a sound set which contains user-created audio loops. I will go into the Stealth Recording Studio folder, and choose Stealth Sounds. And just like the percussion preset, all I need to do is drag Stealth Sounds onto the Arrange window.
And as you can see Transfers box pops up. In addition to Stealth Sounds One Sound Set, I will grab Stealth Sounds Drum Loops. Drag them over as well. 96 megabytes of audio loops will download now. And the resulting download will be visible in the sounds window within the browser. When the download is completed, we'll move to that window and I'll show you. Our download is complete. And I'll move to the sounds window and as you can see Stealth Studio Drum Loops is now in the list of available sound sets.
We look inside the folder and we have seven folders of user-created content. All I have to do is drag a WAV file on to the arrange window, solo it out, and Take a listen. (MUSIC). I can also audition the different drum sounds by using my loop audition player. (MUSIC). (SOUND). (MUSIC). And I'll turn off the metronome, so that these files play at their source tempo. (MUSIC).
I hope you can see the benefits from logging into Exchange and taking advantage of some wonderful user-created content by other Studio One users.
