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.
We covered basic punching in and punching out in the previous movie. And now, it's time to record using Studio One's Track Layers feature. Track Layers allows us to record multiple ideas to a single track. Underneath the Options menu, I'll select Record Take to Layers. Next, I will turn down the volume of our first guitar track, so that Dave isn't drowned out by the sound of the first track as he lays down his second part. I'll record enable guitar two, and add an instance of Ampire, selecting the same preset that we used for the last guitar part.
Except, I will go into the Stomps window and add a delay. Go ahead and play, Dave. (MUSIC) Excellent. Next, I'll put Studio One in Loop Record. I'll use my Range tool, and turn looping on by pressing the Forward slash key. Next, I will turn Pre-roll on, and that will give Dave a one bar pre-roll. And now, we have a range of measures five to nine that will continuously loop, and all of Dave's ideas will be archived onto one track.
(MUSIC) As you can see, all three of Dave's takes are now listed underneath guitar two.
All I need to do to activate a take is to simply click on the Activate Layer button and the take I'm interested in listening to pops to the top of the list and I can listen to it. Let's solo it out. (MUSIC) If I wanted to listen to take two, I highlight take two, and click the Activate Layers arrow and take two is now at top of the list for me to listen.
(MUSIC) We now have a group of recorded takes. And in an upcoming movie, I'll show you how to take bits and pieces from each of these three layers resulting in what is called a composite take.
