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.
I typically begin my projects by programming a reference drum beat first, so in order to do that, we're going to need to create an instrument track. From the Instruments window I will select Impact and drag it onto the Arrange window. Next I will select a preset from Impact's list of presents, and I will choose Balkin lines. (MUSIC). Excellent. I'm seeing MIDI input from my keyboard. (MUSIC). Before I record I'll briefly turn on Input Quantize, I'll cover this more in an upcoming movie, but what it will do is allow the MIDI that I'm inputting, to automatically sync to the grid. And I'll choose 8th note.
I'll double click and name the track, Drums 1, my metronome is on. And I'll go ahead and record. (SOUND) We'll take a listen back. (MUSIC) That drum beat's going to work very well, as I begin to build out the rest of what will become the shell of my song.
