DSP Quattro offers a unique way to process and edit audio and build CDs. In this comprehensive video tutorial series, studio expert Michael Costa unlocks the secrets of DSP Quattro and gets you running with this powerful studio tool.

Michael starts by focusing on basic editing and the Cut Editor. That leads to a discussion of Markers and Regions, and how to use them to navigate and create files. Next, he shows you how to use DSP Quattro as a sound design tool, then wraps up the editing and processing section by covering importing audio, the Repeat and Append tools, trimming, and mixing.

Michael now examines DSP Quattro’s audio file tools, exploring the Plugin Chain and Render FX features, then the digital effects and filters. Videos on built-in DSP Quattro tools such as the Loop Editor, sample rate converter, time and pitch converter, noise reduction, and file processes round out the audio file tools section.

Moving on, Michael teaches you how to use DSP Quattro to create an audio CD, including laying out individual tracks, breaking a song into multiple tracks, processing and outputting your finished CD, batch processing and more!

DSP Quattro offers powerful recording and playing functions as well, and Michael discusses using the Aux Channels and Master section, along with hosting virtual instruments. He then reveals how to use DSP Quattro to record all your external inputs, or the outputs of all of DSP Quattro’s generators.

How to connect DSP Quattro to external samplers is also demonstrated, and finally, Michael explains all of the preferences and preference tabs available in DSP Quattro.

Love this Tutorial, except...

Your tutorials are really helpful, but your web performance, today especially, is woeful. I can't get any tutorials to play at all, in either Firefox or Safari. Hoping you get your act together soon.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I was classically trained in piano from the age of 7 and had a strong obsession with popular music right throughout my youth. I played keyboards in various rock bands in the mid 80's but found a pronounced leaning towards the technology and computer side of music as samplers and computers became more attainable in the late 80's.

2. What training have you had?

In 1989 I completed my Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Music Technology from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. Much of my tech knowledge in those pre-internet days came from devouring issues of Keyboard, Mix and EM - monthly, without fail.

3. When did you get into recording?

I started getting into recording in 1984 with a Tascam 244 4-track cassette system. In 1989 I moved to a Digidesign Sound Tools II system - a true random access 2 track editor - and that was the beginning of a long association with Digidesign products. I married this hardware up to Opcode's Studio Vision for many years as well as getting in at the ground floor with Pro Tools v1 in 1991. I've been a Pro Tools user since then right up to the current day.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've been lucky enough to work with a huge cross section of talent within the Australian music scene. Names like: INXS, Little River Band, John Farnham, Kasey Chambers and Richard Clapton. Plus music editing on breakout movies like Shine and Strictly Ballroom with Oscar nominated composer, David Hirschfelder.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I think I'm good at training because I really love this stuff - I genuinely want to show people how cool these tools are. Even as a fully grown adult, I still find myself getting excited like a little kid about the magic we can do with our systems these days and wondering how far it can go in the years to come. I hope that enthusiasm is contagious!
