Hi, I`m using Studio One Artist.
It`s not easy for me to use.
All I can do is record.
But I would like to add a volume decrease at the end of a song.
I think it`s called a volume fade?
How can I do this?

Thanks.

Frank.

I'll assume you mean across all tracks at once... like a typical song fade out.

1. Click on the "Main Fader". This puts that parameter in the "Automation" window (very top left).
2. Click on the hand icon (very top left) and drag it down into your song.
3. This will automatically create an "automation volume" track for which you can now click on the (volume) line to enter points and drag those points around to create a linear or logarithmic fade-out.

You can also fade individual tracks by grabbing (within view) their end handles and dragging left/right.

I'd suggest you bring some patience and read the manual as this isn't a program you learn in 2 hours.

Hi, yes across all tracks at once, only 2 in my case.
I was able to do it, but not by clicking the "main Fader".
I had to do one track at a time.
I click show automation and then a small blue line
appeared and I was able to adjust from there.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Btw before posting I search the pdf that came with the
software and could not find info on how to do this.

Now I need to figure out how to remove amp buzz...

There is also a Macro in the Studio One Exchange that does a Fade Selection.
So you can select an area using the Select Tool and apply a fade to that,
That selection can be a single track or a range of tracks or all tracks.

The size of the fade depends on the Selection you make. i.e. how long the selection is (Left to Right).

Just in case that does what you want.

Hi, I just discover what is Studio One Exchange hehe.

Pretty cool.
I found something called fade out in range is this the one?

I tried the gate and didn`t like what it did to my sound much.
Maybe next time I will use a noise suppressor in my signal chain.

Thanks.

francoise,

I wouldn't write off the gate just yet. It should not affect your overall sound (but it can mess it up if you set the threshold too high, among other things). Since you're new to the game, I would like to recommend watching the free tutorials by Johnny Geib (just go to Youtube and search his name). His videos explain many, many functions in Studio One. The videos are enjoyable to watch, and very soon you will know how to get a lot done. Also search on Youtube "The Recording Revolution" (Johnny Geib is just one of the guys involved, but he's the best, IMO).
Good luck, and enjoy recording!

The gate will only work on areas that should have silence, it will not remove noise from a performance area of the track.
To strip noise pre performance, turn the threshold all the way down, play the area where you need silence and adjust the threshold up until it just kicks in and make minor adjustment to taste from there.

Just one other thing, if your using single coils (humbuckers to a lesser degree)on your guitar, you may find you are picking up interference from proximity to your PC, just something else to try.

Depending on the style of music, you may find the expander a better fit than the gate. Its not as abrupt. They work in a similar fashion with the threshold, etc. The gate operates as everything gets through, or nothing gets through, and that is determined by the threshold. The expander will quiet signals under the threshold, not shut them off, so it can be more natural sounding. Works well in an ensemble setting, where you don't need total silence. If this is a solo guitar, or very sparse piece, then I dont know of anything short of Isotope RX that would help. RX is a pricey piece of software though.
