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.
Studio One is designed on a drag and drop approach with instruments, loops, and effects. And I will show you just how easy it is to bring these elements into a session. I'll begin by bringing an instance of impact on to the arrange window. All I have to do is drag and drop it, and the impact drum machine pops up. There's no preset loaded into it right now, so I will select one from the drop down menu, and I'll choose club tools. (MUSIC) . This is just a collection of drum sounds that are tailored towards club music. If I'd like to add an effect to this, all I have to do, is go to my effects window and drag a beat delay, and I'll drag it right onto the track. And now we have a beat delay.
(MUSIC) You can hear that snare drum echoing. (MUSIC) You can hear that kick drum echoing. So it's that simple, you drag out an instance of a virtual instrument and you drag an effect onto the same track as that virtual instrument, and your ready to go. I'll close these, and now let's turn our attention towards auditioning audio loops. I'll go into the Sounds window, and into the Nine Volt Guitars folder, and spend a moment auditioning several different guitars.
When I select an audio loop, an information window pops up allowing me to playback the loop that I'm interested in dragging into this session, thereby auditioning it (SOUND). I'll arrow down (SOUND). (MUSIC) Those are just a few examples of the guitar licks found in that folder.
Now you'll notice here, there's a metronome icon. I'll go ahead and play the first loop and I'll turn the metronome off and on while the loop's playing and you'll hear that it will toggle between playing at the session's bpm of 126. And it's original BPM of 86 which you can see right here. Take a listen (SOUND). (MUSIC) All I have to do to bring this into the session is drag it onto the arrange window like this. Now we have a 4 bar loop, called gimme that e, from the 9 volt guitar loops folder.
Let's play (MUSIC). Instruments, audio loops, and effects, are the cornerstone of any project created in StudioOne. And with PreSonus' drag and drop approach, bringing these elements into your session couldn't be any easier. Keep in mind that we've done all of this without having to open up the mixer window.
