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'd like to spend a few minutes taking you on a brief tour of Studio One's transport and highlighting some of its features. I'll begin on the left side with the MIDI Activity Monitor. As I play a key on my external MIDI controller, you'll see the orange light light up on the MIDI Activity Monitor window, letting me know that MIDI data is being transmitted from the keyboard to Studio One. Next, we have the CPU performance meter, as well as the cash activity monitor, and these perimeters will help you monitor how much CPU activity is occurring. Next, we have sample rate and total plug-in delay, which is at zero right now, because we haven't added any plug-ins.
Next, we have record time on the available hard drive and we have seconds and bars beats over here. And as I hit the Space bar, you can see the seconds are moving and the bars and beats are moving. And in order to return the play head to zero, I simply click over here, return to zero. These arrows over here, relate to fast forwarding and rewinding, moving forward and backwards from marker to marker, stopping, playing, recording and looping functionality.
Next, we have punch in and punch out points for recording and loop playback. And then, we have Metronome Settings, as well as Time Signature, BPM and Volume. As you'll see in upcoming movies, many of the transport's features can be accessed by via keyboard shortcuts. For example, playback and stopping occurs by using the Space bar. Returning the play head to zero occurs by using the comma. Whether you have worked in other DAWs or Studio One is your first experience with a DAW, learning the layout of the transport is key to getting up and running.
