Some mixing/production basics applied to voice over
This is not a tutorial on using Studio One, the user should have a rough understanding of what to find where. Unfortunately, a user who knows how to work with layers (the presenter is using layers to "comp" a final mix based on voice track and ambiance) will know what a compressor, EQ or noise reduction plugin is used for, so the actual tips in this tutorial aren't showing anything new to those users. While I personally appreciate the "compressed at the source" style of talking the presenter is exercising - along with the fact that he does quite some pre-EQing and pre-compression on his recording pipeline - this makes the course lack tips for some of the more pressing issues like dealing with very unsteady source material, evening out a voice track that is not smooth and perfect to begin with. In other words: The presenter works with "perfect" input material, giving it some final touch by adding standard EQ, compression and editing. Which is fine for a novice user to see, but does not help with a "real world scenario". The novice user might be somewhat lost in applying the tools, though. Personally, I find the lack of dynamics in the presenter's narration tiring, but that really, really is a personal thing and has nothing to do with quality, professionalism or pizza.
Response from Customer Service:
Thank you for your review! We appreciate you taking the time.
You are correct that this is not a Studio One lesson on features and functions. This is a beginner level/entry level tutorial introducing voiceovers using the Studio One DAW. Please check out our Studio One 3 Explained and other tutorials for specific lessons on the software.
I will add a request for a more advanced version of this tutorial for you and others who want to take these concepts further.

Studio One Voiceovers
The presenter is very knowledgeable and it the material is quite helpful. The problem is that the pace is way to fast for a beginner of which I am. It is obvious that he is experienced in Studio One and I think he assumes the user is as well. No very useful to a beginning user of Studio One.

I do mainly music for TV and Film, but occasionally I get voiceover work as well. This was good for showing me levels and signal chain options. Thanks!
