Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Learning Studio One 3.
- This course has been designed to get you started as a beginning user as well as to introduce previous users to the array of new features in Studio One version 3. Before you get going, check via the Start page to see if you have the most current version. As of the time of recording this course, the free upgrade to Studio One 3.1 was already available. If you're working along with your own copy of Studio One, you'll notice we are using the Professional version of Studio One, Studio One Professional.
There are three tiers of the software versions and each scale up with cost. Here's a quick heads-up on the versions. If you're working with Studio One Prime, you'll have access to most of the tools and techniques we look at, however, you'll be missing a few of the instruments, effects, and features, such as Scratchpad and the Arrange tools. If you're using Studio One Artist, you'll have access to most everything, with the exception of the Scratchpad and Arrange tools and the large amount of content that is part of the Pro version.
Finally, if you spring for the Pro version you'll get all the features we discuss in this course and I must say, don't let the Professional name intimidate you. You'll find the price point quite competetive with other DAWs. Especially when you see the included feature set. Also, if you're using the Studio One Professional version, you'll have access to the project page, where we can do our mastering and set up for digital or physical release.
