Studio One General Discussion » How to make my own sounds? » Go to message
The only way I know to have them on one track is to use a vsti rack plugin like "chainer". That said I use separate tracks with a linked duplicate midi event and route the mixer outputs to a bus and hide the sources and put the tracks into a folder. BeLoop can also be used (routes one midi event to several tracks) but you still wind up with serveral tracks but don't have to worry about the linked duplicate midi.

Hope this helps,
Roy

Open the inspector and select your sample. Then just use the mouse on the speedup value to resample to a differnt length ie. speedup = 0.5 doubles the length of your sample.

I agree it would be nicer to just drag the sample longer but clicking and dragging up and down on the speedup value is almost as good.

Hope this helps,

Studio One General Discussion » Negative delay in S1, is it possible? » Go to message
In the inspector panel for the track there is a setting for the delay (in milliseconds). It works with negative values as well and no plugin required.

Studio One General Discussion » Mixes from 6 months ago no longer usable! » Go to message
I agree probably a plugin or something else has changed between releases. I've been burned by this with another daw before so now I always export stems as well as mixdown. At least with the stems I can get to the same sound as before.

To try to get your mixes back I would reinstall the old S1 version (you can have several versions on your computer at the same time) and try loading with that. I know the old versions are archived somewhere.It doesn't cost another activation.

Cheers,
Roy
Studio One General Discussion » Pipeline help » Go to message
If the red and blue pings are on top of each other then the latency shown in the upper right is the correct latency - the actual time it takes for the ping to leave and come back. Just as a regular plugin reports its latency to the host so that it can compensate the pipeline plugin reports the latency you set by adjusting the offset so that red and blue signals are superimposed back to the daw so it can compensate. You don't set the latency to zero because it obviously takes time for the signal to leave, go through the hareware and return. If you set the latency to zero the daw wouldn't know how much to compensate and keep all your tracks in time.

You just line up your input and output pings as best you can. As I understand it, the pipeline plugin makes an educated guess of the latency and you fine tune this with the offset. After the offset adjustment the latency shown in the upper right is then the correct latency which is used by S1's built in latency compensation. I got this info from a groove3 video I watched at a friends place and its the way I use my buss compressor. Works prefectly!!

LMike,

I wouldn't worry to much about about the math side of the dsp processing. Optimized code foe antialiasing, various filters etc. is readily available on the net.

Try visiting "Martin Finke's Blog" (just google for it). He has a turorial that starts by showing how to install the wdl-ol plugin framework and what compilers you need etc. and then goes on to build a synth step by step explaining everything as he goes.

The hardest part foe me was getting the stupid MS compiler installed with all the service paks and fixes (must be done in a certain order that isn't readily obvious). PM me if you are on a PC and I can save you a couple hours of grief with this. The MAC instructions are alot easier.

You will be able to target plugins for VST2, VST3 and AU in 32 and 64 bit (for rtas you need to use a different/older compiler on PC). and everything you need is free. Generally you will be duplicating existing projects and replacing functions so that the C++ is introduced very gently. Martin's blog is an interesting read even if you don't go down this route.

Hope this helps,
Roy
Studio One General Discussion » Any way to pass keyboard presses to a vst? » Go to message
I've had a few problems with kb input to vst's as well. They started when many people were complaining that the spacebar wouldn't start/stop playback while a vst was open. I don't remember at which version the change was made but its when my issues started. I agree that a button should be provided to pass all kb input through to the vst so that the user can choose how he wishes to work with a particular vst.

Cheers,

Studio One General Discussion » How to Copy and paste a Loop » Go to message
For the first question in your post look up loop recording in the manual (section 5.5) it does exactly what you want. The second question regarding the vocal harmonies there are a few ways to do this. If in the options you have play overlapping events set to on you can just drag one vocal track on top of the other and bounce. Another method (the one that I would probably use) is to put the vocal tracks into a folder and edit the folder track.

When I upgraded there were no issues - Old songs, templates and presets I made where available and working.

Studio One General Discussion » Dumb question: "gluing" the total mix? » Go to message
Its not in parrallel just very gently compressed. The purpose isn't so much to compress but to make to tracks sound as though they were played together (glue is as good a word as any).
Make sure you mix through the bus compressor though and don't just slap it on in the end after you've finished mixing. I usually add it right after gain staging and a rough leveling of the tracks. The plugins that dr4kan mentioned are probably two of the best. Even using the presonus compressor and then a tiny amount of a saturation plugin works pretty well.

Roy
Studio One General Discussion » Dumb question: "gluing" the total mix? » Go to message
Just put a buss compressor on the master fader. For my type of music I only knock off one db or so at 2:1 ratio. I find it very important to the sound of my mixes, so much so that I bought the xrack ssl bus compressor in a mynx case. I have another mynx that contains an ssl eq and ssl comp which gives me an ssl channel strip. The two mynx's are the only hardware I own other than my interface and some mics.

For the tempo track, just set the grid resolution to its smallest value and use the pencil tool to draw. This is still stepped but it works well and is easy to use.

Cheers,
Roy

Edit: Hold down the alt key when you draw with the pencil tool (forgot to add it above).

I do mostly orchestration as well. The way the colour changes work is just broken and has been discussed many times before on the forum.

1. changing one colour in the track view changes all colours in the mixer view attached to that vsti. It shouldn't change the mixer view at all -- let me set the colours and leave them alone.

2. Setting the individual colours in the mixer of a multi-out vsti gets lost on a save. Reverts back to the colour of stereo 1/2 outputs of the vsti on re-load.

3. really funky behavoir with a mixture of multi-out vsti's and audio tracks when moving them. They appear to jump around. Again leave my mixer view alone. I often don't want my mixer order to be the same as my track order anyways.

4. Moving tracks in the mixer can move tracks in and out of folders in the track view. This is really dangerous behavior especially in conjunction with Point 3 above and folder editing.

What I have done to combat some of the above issues is to route every multi-out in the mixer to its own bus and then hide the source. At least then my visible colours don't get messed up and I can order them how I wish.

Studio One was my first daw (I just used notation programs previously). I don't know how other programs handle these issues. I don't care if its intended behavior. I just know that for an orchestrator the current workflow with multi-out vsti's leaves alot to be desired.

Cheers,
Roy
Studio One General Discussion » Glissando (or slide between notes if you like) in Studio One Midi Editor » Go to message
Almost all the orchestral Vsti's have a portamento that works. It is often implemented by changing the function of the pedal such that when the pedal is held down and the portamento is on the Vsti slurs between two played notes rather than sustaining the notes. If your midi controller does not have a pedal you usually have to automate both the pedal and the portamento values for the effect to work.

Roy
