Song Page Part 13

Console Continued...

16. Studio One has what can best be described as a Live / Real time Mixer. The Compressors Micro view for example can give real time visual feedback. Micro views allow a user to make changes to a plugins (key) parameters without opening the UI of the Plug. This currently only works for Studio One Plugins. Definitely something to check out.



17. You can drag any FX chain to another track easily by placing your cursor over the "Inserts" text until a hand appears. You can now drag your Effects chain to any other track in the mixer.



18.
You can deactivate or re activate all you FX with a single click on the power button (in the image above next to the small arrow) for the track (not on any of the FX). Of course the FX can still individually be deactivated with their power buttons but one can easily bypass them all by clicking on the tracks Power / Activate button instead.

Project Window Part 1

1. You can drag in a wave file or...a Studio One Song file into the Project Window. if you drag a Song file (.song) S1 will bounce that Song down to a Wave file and then add it to the Project Window Timeline.

2. Each wave file you drag / or bounced Song file will have its own dedicated track....



3. You can change the colour of a wave file audio event in the Project view Time line by going to the corresponding track and either clicking on the left edge of it or rolling over the left track edge with your mouse wheel (...green arrow).

4. Each track in the Project Window has its own vertical meter as well (...red arrow).

5. Click on the show hide arrow (...near the blue arrow in the image above) to reveal more fields for that track.

6. If you want to rearrange the order of your tracks you don't have to drag and re order in the Time line directly, you can simply reorder the tracks in the tracks pane where your tracks are listed. This will also keep the 2 second default gap between the tracks.

7. There are a few buttons and hide show buttons that offer direct access to many Project Window features but the Project Menu is another useful way to access the features it offers.

Parameter Automation

Continued...

Another method...

d. You can also just touch any parameter on the UI of the plug you want to automate and in the left parameter box place your mouse cursor over the hand icon and drag it to any track. S1 will create an Automation lane for that parameter.

Also you can just press "A" next to the hand.


nick

To complete this fabulous tip: For midi parts of any vsti you can also drag this "hand" to the music editors automation lanes. The parameter becomes automatable right in the selected midi part.


eike

or use the keycommand ([Alt+A] for standard layout).

Another one: when you're using a remote with local (i.e. plugin) mapping keep open the remote window (available from the external devices list in mixer) to see your current mapping and to drop parameters using the hand onto the remote controls. this works for global (i.e. song) mapping, too.

To clarify the great tip, you don't have to use the box on the project window since every effect window has it's own... less "mouse traveling".



Also take note that the history of things you touched is not dependent on the current plugin window, so here I can create an envelope for a different plugin that's on a different track (Flanger), and not even currently displaying it's GUI, from that delay plugin window GUI. So that box is "global" like the one in the top left of the project window.

Sharing your Songs - with other S1 users.

Just follow these basic steps to share any Song with another S1 user....

1.
Go to Song > Copy External Files This will copy any imported files into your Song Media folder.

2. Use the File > Save command to save the Song.

3.
Go to Song > Show Media Folder in Explorer. That will take you to the Media folder for that Song. Go up one level from that folder and you should see other folders including your S1 .song file for that Song.

4. Copy everything there, put it in a folder and zip it all up to send to your friend that also uses S1.

i'd say rather use file->save to new folder.
in that save-dialog create a new folder and save into that.
you will be asked if unused files should be removed.
afterwards zip/rar/compress that folder and send the archive off

Re: editing in general for the rest of you guys ...

From a long time Cubase user here's a tip if you prefer to use the mouse tools and not key commands. Put your left baby finger on the "1" key and using four fingers go through 1,2,3,4. For tools 5 & 6 use the same index finger you use for tool four. You'll be flying through the tool selections and all you ever have to do is locate the "1" key to start.

If you run through them in order a few times until you get a feel for where they are you'll get used to it rather quickly, with the most important part being that "1" always brings the selection arrow back. Associating that with what you see on the toolbar (finger to icon) or mouse cursor happens pretty fast if you spend a few minutes doing it and eventually "index finger, erase something, back to arrow" will be pretty quick.

Actually, when you start doing it get in the habit of looking at the mouse cursor as you change them (not the toolbar) and you'll see what I mean.



P.S. If or when they start adding additional items/tools under those to the tool lists I think they'll follow the same methods there. If there are ever 3 tools under an icon I suppose you'll be able to just keep tapping the same key to cycle through them.

If snap is turned on just draw the highlight and push "up" on the part like I do below to quickly split ...



If snap is off and you don't want the part positioning to change, use the key command. Once you get into 1.5 you should be able to change that 3-key "split range" command combination into a single key to make that easier. And get used to using the CTL (CMD on Mac I think) for the range tool modifier, it makes editing much faster than manually switching tools.

eike

as this thread is not yet sticky, here's a bump. and as this got asked quite recently: most controls (i.e. knobs, sliders, handles) in studio one can be fine-adjusted by holding the shift key and reset to default value when holding [cntrl]/[cmd] and clicking on them

Import Midi Tip
If you're already working in a song and you want to open a standard midi file in it's own new song, respecting the tempo of the file for instance, drag/drop from the browser to the toolbar area instead of the arrange space. Faster than File | Open for me anyways... since we already have file system access in the browser.
