At nearly 4 hours, let studio guru Marcus Huyskens be your guide for the most comprehensive tutorial series on how to use Studio One's immense collection of effects available! The 34 videos in this series cover everything you could want to know about all of the built-in Studio One processors.

Marcus begins with Analysis Plug-Ins, giving you overviews and practical examples of how to use the IR Maker, Level Meter, Phase Meter, Scope, Spectrum Meter, Tone Generator, and Tuner. Next, he dives into all three Delays included with Studio One Pro: the Analog Delay, Beat Delay, and Groove Delay. After that, Marcus shows you how to use the two Distortion Plug-Ins, the Ampire XT Amp Simulator and the RedLight Distortion.

Dynamics plug-ins are now showcased, with Marcus exploring the Compressor, Expander, Gate, and Limiter. He even teaches you how to connect your External Gear to Studio One using the Pipeline Plug-In. Moving on, you'll learn about the two Mastering Processors, Multiband Dynamics and Tricomp. Marcus also takes the time to give you in-depth information on how to use the six Mixing Plug-Ins: Binaural Pan, Channel Strip, Dual Pan, Fat Channel, Mixtool, and Pro EQ.

Marcus concludes this epic series with two categories of Time-Based Effects. First, the five included Modulation Effects Autofilter, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, and X-Trem are covered. Finally, he explores the three included Reverbs: Mixverb, Open Air, and Room Reverb.

Great for beginners — or as a refresher for experienced users.

Most Presonus effects have remained relatively unchanged since version 2.0, so this video is still relevant for learning the standard fx issued with this DAW. It's worth the investment in time to watch this - even if you're an experienced user - because Marcus might cover something you've skimmed over in the past.

great tutorials...

that gave me more insight of all the plug in knobs that i mostly pushed randomly, beside that i gained some inspiration for my own tracks. I also learned about s1 features like e.g. the event fx. They are sometimes a little bit dry in my opinion ( ;-)), but i definitly learned a lot more compared to reading the s1 manual, wich gives me headaches. I fully recommend watching these tutorials.

Great overview with a couple of caveats.

This is an overview of all the effects of Studio One. It's concise and straight forward. The use of zoom was much appreciated along with the highlighting of what the author was working on, very nice. I would've liked the voiceover a bit more balanced with the audio example as I was constantly adjusting my volume to compensate. There was one very short explanation of one of the effects, that was a bit disappointing. There is some dated material relating to earlier versions, but things will work essentially the same, so don't let that keep you from purchasing. There is some redundancy between this series and another one so be aware of over purchasing. If you're new to DAWs and specifically Presounus Studio One this is a great place to start.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing piano at around 5 years old, after which point I switched to the Guitar at around age 10. I was pretty lucky, as my parents had quite a nice selection of records, spanning across multiple genres, that I could listen too. I would sit by the record player with headphones on, and close my eyes, and imagine myself playing along with them. I listened to much "older" music than the current music my age group was listening to. I continued to play the guitar and by 16, had developed some pretty decent chops, and was playing lots of local jazz clubs & restaurants with a couple friends. However after the birth of my first son, I took a break from gigging, and made the transition to the other side of the glass. However, I still rely on, and draw upon my abilities as a musician all the time, as I feel that an engineer, producer, or mixer, with a decent understanding of music, tempo, groove, theory, and genres, is a step ahead of the game.

2. What training have you had?

Pretty much 23 years of locking myself in a chair, and working diligently on my craft. Over the years, Ive also had had the great pleasure of working with other fantastic engineers, being able to pick their brains, observe and sponge in all the information that they offered. I still maintain, that you can learn more from a couple weeks, or even a couple days working with a seasoned pro, then you can in a year or 2 of school. Although I was set on going to audio engineering for school, my parents insisted on me going to school for business marketing, which didn't really work out, as I spent most of my time cutting class and going to my older sisters media arts classes, offering up myself as an actor, or voice over actor, (whatever they needed) for all of their student productions, so that I could learn more about audio/video production. It wasn't quite an audio engineering per se, but it was a close second!

Although Ive never had any formal education, I can recall my early "lessons" from my father, of cutting tape, and working with analogue gear. Being given tasks, like recording music from a record to tape, then cutting the tape, to make edits. The process of gain staging, EQ, fader riding, compression, adding reverb, etc etc. Also most importantly, my lessons in understanding the psychology behind getting the best performance from your artist/talent, which I was able to comprehend, and which I still keep with me, and use to this day.

3. When did you get into recording?

By about 11 years old, after listening to countless records in awe, I became interested, (or maybe even obsessed) with the whole recording process. When I badgered my father enough, he eventually dusted off his old TEAC 3340 reel to reel, an old mixer, and a spring reverb for me, that had been meticulously stored and well taken care of. Needless to say, It was pretty much game over from that point on. I fell in love with the notion of being able to capture a moment in time, a performance of art, and preserving it. In the very beginning, I spent most of my time re-recording old records, and singing and playing over top while tracking them, playing around with different microphones, then began a crash course in the basics.

In a sense I was very fortunate, as in addition to being a producer/camera man, my father was a pretty savvy audio engineer, who used to record/mix the music for all his documentaries / productions he worked on back in the day. So, at a very young age, & before the times of the “Mbox" and portable interfaces, little did I know, that I was receiving some very thorough training that became the foundation of my craft. As i grew more comfortable with the gear, I started inviting other children over to my "studio" (parents living room-LoL) who were in bands, so that I could record them. My parents were pretty supportive, often allowing me to use this area, and make noise to do something I enjoyed.

Fast forward a couple years to high school, As my band was looking to get some gigs, I was able to record our own demo's to hand out to clients, and continued to work on my craft, eventually opening up my first studio in 2002. From there, everything else is pretty much history.

4. People you have worked with/for?

The majority of my work has been on the Indi scene music wise, working with local talent, and also internationally as a mixer for various clients in different genres. In 2010/2011 I shifted my efforts, and began working on ad spots, both writing, and recording/mixing with different composers, which eventually brought me down the path of actually developing my own set of sample libraries for composers to use in music production, and television/film/games. This has really opened up some doors for me and expanded my cliental into areas I would have never imagined. I continue to work with talented artists, and composers on various projects, in addition, I also do some voice over work for different audio brands.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Tough one to answer, but, i'd like to think that I teach people the way that I prefer to be taught. Which is building a foundation of knowledge, then adding to it in stages, with clear steps. I try to stay on point, and simplify a process down to its core level. I find that in general, there are a lot of tutorials that leave you scratching your head sometimes. I try to avoid that. Ive often had friends say to me, that I simplify things, so if thats the case, then I hope I can continue to do so.
