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.
So far, we have been working within Studio One's Arrange window, and Browser window. And now, I'd like to show you another window, that I like to work in, called the Inspector window. I can access the Inspector window by hitting F4 on the keyboard. And as you'll notice, I have a single column view in the left hand side of the screen, that's divided into three sections. Let's begin with the center section. The center section offers me a more detailed view of what I'm looking at on the Arrange window. You can see I have Mutes here, Solos, Record Enable and Monitor buttons, just like I do on the Arrange window. But I also have a Fader, as well as a Pan Position slider and I have an overview of what plug-ins are being used on the selected track. If I highlight the region, you'll notice that some information has popped up in the bottom of the Inspector window.
The bottom part of the Inspector window offers me a detailed view of my region's parameters, such as start and end points. The upper part of the Inspector window provides advanced track properties. And you'll notice that as I change between audio to MIDI, that the properties change as well. Over here in the center of the Inspector window, I have my MIDI input and output information, as well as a Fader, Mute Solo, Record Enable and Monitor On. It's important to take notice of where you're highlighting.
If I highlight Guitar 2, Guitar 2 is highlighted, the track is highlighted, but the region CP70 is highlighted as well. So, the highlighted region doesn't necessarily follow the highlighted track. So, when you do work in the Inspector window, make sure to take caution in terms of what you're highlighting versus track or region. During the recording and arranging process, we often need to spend time tweaking our track and regions parameters. And the Inspector window is a great way to go about doing that.
