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.
Now, it's time to configure and record an audio track. I hit T on the keyboard, and up pops the Add Tracks window. I'll change Audio to Guitar, because that's the instrument I'll be recording, and I'll change the track count to 4. The type is Audio, as you can see from the pull-down menu, I have a choice of Audio, Instrument, Automation, or Folder. I'll leave it set to Audio. The format is Mono. You have a choice of Mono or Stereo. I'm not going to choose a Preset at this time, but as you can see Studio One provides me with a list of preset effects chains, which we will cover in a later movie.
I'll leave the Input path set to input L and Output set to Main. I click OK, and up pops four new guitar tracks. I'll select Guitar 1 and have Dave play a little guitar. (MUSIC) Excellent. That's just the dry signal. I'll move over to the Effects window and choose the Empire plugin. Drag that over to the guitar track and I'll choose a Preset. I'm familiar with this preset called(UNKNOWN).
Select that and close the Empire window. Dave, if you'd play a little bit. (MUSIC). Great, thank you. That adds just a little bit of grit to the part so that we're not tracking the part overly dry and we want a little bit of context to the part as we record it. I'll turn off my virtual instrument track here CP70, because that track is staying record enabled, even though, I already record enabled the audio track. So you have to take a moment to make sure that any MIDI tracks you may have laid down, that the Record Enable button is turned off before you start recording your audio.
There's a four bar counting and I will go ahead and put Studio One in record. And Dave will play through the chord changes of the 16 bar passage(MUSIC). (MUSIC) Great thank you, sounds great, Dave. So that's how you record external audio to Studio One, and then, the next movie I'll show you, how to punch in in a specific location within your arrangement.
