I've been getting a lot of help lately from the users of Studio One 2 free edition and I would like to also say thank you to those who have helped me with the questions that I've had.

Lately I've been using this edition to make beats or to at least chop a few things up to suit my style and purposes, now my step is going to be the recording process. I would like to know if anyone could give me step by step instructions on how to properly install my CAD U37 USB Mic so that Studio One recognizes it as an audio device. Or if there is a link I can go to I would greatly appreciate the help.

And I understand its the free edition and there's only so much I can do but if there is a way I think it would be cool to be able to lace a few tracks down with this program.

Once again thank you for your help and I look forward to reading your responses
All I have is Windows 7, Studio One Artist Edition, Presonus AudioBox, M7 Condenser mic, and some Califone headphones with the prefered coiled cord... That should be enough for a noob right?
Oh yeah, and the AKAI MPD32!!!

Lace a few tracks down? Not sure I understand. S1 Free records multi tracks and mixes them down.

Forgive me for the slang
What I meant to say was I owuld like to be able to record using my CAD U37 usb mincrophone but for some reason when I run the program it disables the audio recording application and it says something about not being able to access the mic.

Any suggestions?

You can not use a USB mic and a USB interface at the same time in Studio One. Some folks have found workarounds with a Mac and for PC, some got it to work with the ASIO4all driver but I'm not familiar with the details. maybe someone can chime in here.

What exactly is a USB interface in comparison to the Studio One program? Is Studio One a USB interface?

I think you're quite confused there my friend.

Studio One = the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software recording program
USB Interface = An audio device that connects to your computer (via USB) where you plug in your microphones and speakers
USB Microphone = Another type of audio device for recording but is a single microphone and has no outputs to listen while recording.

Hope that helps.

So does the microphone not work because I don't have a USB interface to go with it?
On other programs like Audacity, I can monitor my sound to see if it picks up on the computer, or is it because since its just a USB mic with no headphone adapter to it?

You're still confused a bit but a USB Mic uses the USB inputs on your computer. Not a USB interface. Let me put it more simply. Studio One will not allow you use a USB mic very easily. You will need a custom driver in order to use it and you computer's sound card.

So how do I get a custom driver for the mic? Is it a separate tool that I need purchase?

That's where my expertise kinds stops. I'm hoping someone else can chime in and help. Mac users have an option for an aggregate device and PC users can use the ASIO4all driver somehow.

In my opinion, get rid of the USB mic and just get a regular condenser to use with the Audiobox.

What exactly does the ASIO 4 ALL program actually do?
From what I read it basically allows the users vocals to reach the computer quicker, correct

My biggest concern is that I'm on a budget and I purchased an inexpensive CAD U37 usb mic for my laptop operating off of Win7.
I would like the microphone to able to work directly with the Studio One program, but I have been told perhaps to download ASIO 4 ALL.
Will this help at all because when I have the mic plugged in I get a "Audio disabled" prompt and the program says unable to enable the CAD U37 microphone.

What should I do? Because I don't want to get rid of the mic and I do want to be able to use it.

Well, I don't know what other options you have if the ASIO4all driver doesn't work.

Is the audiobox compatible with other condenser microphones or is the M7 Mic the only one it can use, The reason I ask is because it looks like I may have to invest in the audiobox because that's considered to be the phantom power, correct.

Now because I have Studio One free, I am able to work on tracks here and there, when the CAD U37 isn't connected to my laptop the program doesn't disable the audio and I'm able the hear the playback of my voice and the track without latency.

And if I were to purchase the audiobox and maybe the M7 Mic, if it's not compatible with other usb condenser mics, then I should have no more problems right?

Correct!

The Audiobox, a standard Condenser Mic (doesn't have to be the M7) and Studio One Free should be a great start to recording. But be advised, if you buy an audiobox it comes with Studio One Artist at no cost and has alot more features than the Free version.

Hey man, dont know if your question ever actually got answered (if so,just ignore me). But in short, yes download and install Asio4all from www.asio4all.com and this will now be your asio driver. Under the studio one audio device tab click on asio4all as your device driver. When you do this is in the bottom right corner of your computer screen youll see a panel for asio4all driver. make sure and check that your "c-media usb device" is labeled as your device and that your output is your pc speaker(or headphones,speakers,etc). Hope this helps buddy as i have both the u37 and studio one as well and had to go through this same process. Cheers!
