Product Overview


Presonus Studio One 3 excels in recording and editing audio thanks to its powerful new audio features. In these in-depth video tutorials DAW guru Scott Fritz shows you the important basics as well as creative, advanced techniques when recording and editing audio in Studio One.

Scott starts by covering the Audio I/O Configuration, File Settings and getting you Ready to Record. Then you’ll see how to Create Audio Tracks and better understand Audio Region Settings. Next, Scott shows you how you can record through the Guitar Simulation Plug-Ins in Studio One 3 and eliminate the need for an amplifier.

After Recording Tracks, Scott shows you how to use the Basic Slice, Fade, and Editing Tools to edit your performances. He also shows you how you can use the built-in Melodyne application to create Complex Vocal Harmonies.

With editing covered, it’s time to get creative! Scott demonstrates how to use Scratch Pads to create different edits that you can then compare to each other, and how to use Track Layers to enhance your workflow. Finally, Scott concludes the series with two videos on Quantizing Audio, and how to use Audio Bend on quantized audio.

Rated 1.5 out of 5 by from Author sounds in a hurry and not interested in the topic. I never got through this - too depressing. Go straight to Studio One 4 and don't bother with this.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Audio Region Settings. Generally good. However in the Audio Region Settings, the author continually confuses sections with audio events with regions. All of these are separate components. An event is not a region and sections are not events and so on.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from excellent intro to record and editing in SO3 I was pleasantly surprised by this video. perhaps a bit short but for the price I was pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Helpful Nuts and Bolts, not so helpful video editing The videos in this series are short, concise and to the point. Most show interesting, helpful little tips that may come in handy or that you have been looking for in StudioOne, coming from other DAWs and not finding them ... Two things really annoyed me: The presenter keeps telling Apple-specific keyboard shortcuts and ignores other systems completely. Usually, it's "common sense" to either name both important OSs' specific shortcuts OR to use a text overlay listing them. Second, the video editing was hurting my brain. With constant swipes, zooms, pans around the desktop I couldn't focus on what the presenter was showing and telling at the same time. Video resolution really isn't that high that you need to zoom into a single button, it would have sufficed to mark the area you are talking about by darkening the rest of the screen (which the presenter does, too, but he adds crazy zooms and pans on top of that).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great for More Indepth View of Key Features If you watched the Studio One 3 Explained and First Song with Studio One 3, then this video is a great follow up to diving into the key features that one will be using in recording. While First Song covers more vocal work, this series focuses more on instrument recording (i.e., Guitar). It's enough to dive into Studio One 3 and start using comfortably.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Fast and Furious! Really liked the objective approach to common audio editing situations. Seemed a much better approach than looking to all tools without proper context of use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Recording & Editing Audio in Studio One 3 Great tutorial with amazing insight to tips and tricks that have been so useful to me already.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from I have no choice: five stars for this one That is one the best courses of Scott. Short one, packed with knowledge. Very helpful highlighting and close ups. The course is fast yet the narration is not this time, so there is a sufficient amount of time to accommodate all the information provided. This course showed me (at last) how to quantize audio tracks in Studio One properly. And this is what I wanted and could not find anywhere else. The option of slicing the material first, then quantizing it and thereafter merging it again is something amazing. And that is just a little part of the course. Thank you so much Scott!
