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've decided to back to my original mix and make a slight mix change, as well as an arrangement change. I'll click on the song button and it will take me back to the song page. Now, I felt that the snare drum was a little bit loud. So, I'm going to lower that a dB, hit F3 to access my mixer and my snare drum, coming from impact, is at 1.5 dB, plus 1.5. I'm going to lower that down to plus 0.3 and take a listen to it. (MUSIC).
Excellent. I'd like to add eight bars of music at the end, so that I don't have a cold ending when the vocal ends. I will highlight this whole section here and all I have to do is hit D to duplicate, and I'll bring that back one bar. I'll take a listen, and I'll actually add a crash cymbal at the very end of the song. Let's take a listen to the last bit of it here.
(MUSIC). Excellent. As I listen to that crash cymbal decay, I'll consider measure 36 the end of the song now. Underneath Song > Song Setup and I'll change the song end to measure 36.
The reason that I need to change the song ending to 36 is that so when I update mastering files, which I will do from the Song menu. Studio One will automatically insert this new version of the mix directly into the project session and my mastering session will be adjusted accordingly. I'll choose Update Mastering File. Studio One gives me a window telling me what the file name is and I will choose Yes.
I hit the Project button. And as you can see on my timeline, the new mix has been automatically inserted into my mastering session. As you can see, the song is slightly longer. Let's take a listen and make sure that it is truly the mix that we exported. (MUSIC). And that is indeed the updated mix.
The nice thing about Studio One's work flow is that my EQ and compressor that I had originally put on the last version of the mix stays intact. So, none of the mastering settings on the plugins that I've chosen have been effected at all. Studio One simply swaps out the audio files allowing me to continue my workflow. Its not uncommon during the mastering process to go back to your mixes and make mix and or arrangement updates. And Studio One makes this extremely easy by allowing you to update your mastering files.
