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.
The Artist's Profile section of StudioOne will provide a portion of the Metadata that will be embedded in your tracks after they are bounced down or exported. As you can see, you have an area for Artist Name, Music Genre, which I will type in Electronic, and Artist or Band website, and I'll enter my website. If you would like to include a picture, simply click on the Select Image box here with the three little dots. And I will pull up a cropped photo.
The original photo size was quite large, so I shrunk it down in Preview, and I'll select Open here. Studio One will bring up a dialog box asking me if I'd like to scale the image to 5 12 by 5 12. I will select Yes, and the picture appears here in the box. As I roll the cursor over you can see a magnifying glass appears. Because this picture looks a little pixelated and low quality... If I click on the magnifying glass, you can see that the picture is actually of good quality. It's just that as it appears in the box here, because it's shrunk down to a thumbnail size, it looks a little bit pixelated. If I decide later on that I'd like to change my picture, or not include a picture at all, all I need to do is click x here, and remove the image. I can also change the artist or band's website name from song to song by double clicking and just typing in a new website address. One important note is that you can access the artist's profile meta data from within a song you are working on, allowing you to change the meta data from project to project.
I'll show you how to do that a bit later on in the course. I tend to change the artist's meta data from song to song or project to project, because many times I am the re-mixer or producer. Sometimes I am the artist, but if I'm the producer or re-mixer or engineer, I don't want my name to appear as the artist. This is a good housekeeping tip because as you send files around or publish files, you want to make sure that the metadata contained within them is correct, avoiding any confusion.
