Edit: scratch what I said below, I misread the announcement and noticed right after I posted this. It's not an additional MP3 facility for Pro, it's the (same?) MP3 feature for the feature-cut version of SO. Ok, makes sense

-- derp starts here --

Although I'm not particularly upset, I must say... asking for a couple of bucks for an MP3 encoding addon for a Professional audio workstation environment is kind of humorous

Ok, gotta get some sleep.

And hey, if the "always on top" bug is gone, that's HUGE (seriously). Something must have been lost in translation though, as the list of changes says "[Windows] Studio One window now always on top", haha.

Seems to work exactly like it should, i.e. the window isn't always on top.

Oh right, should have mentioned: Windows 7 64-bit here. Well, it reactivated with no problems, and seems to stay activated, so I'm not too worried (as donato77 said, you can always ask for more activations). As a rule of thumb, though, automatically deactivating a product on a customer's machine without giving a proper reason should be avoided, imo.

I didn't need more activations, like I said, I had them left. Just wondering why an update would deliberately deauthorize the software without any given reason (hasn't happened to me on previous SO updates either).

Installing this update deauthorized Studio One on my main workstation like it was a standard procedure during update (threw a dialog which said the application is now deactivated, please go to your account to manage your licenses). Fortunately I had activations left. What's up with that? Making people afraid to update in the future, as a simple point update can make you run out of activations?

1 Simply place the cursor at the point where you want to insert measures. (Do not select a range with the range tool etc)

2 Select Insert Silence (from the Edit Menu)


That's what we were saying in this thread already , including me when noting that signature changes aren't multi-selectable (markers are, btw, so you never have to move them one by one if you're in some other situation that calls for moving them but not inserting silence). But yes, exactly this.

Edit: see hatman's own second post (third in the thread):

Signature changes aren't multi-selectable at all, you'll have to move them one by one. Also, if the project is on the large side (pretty much anything larger than quite basic), with automation and tempo changes, markers and the lot, it's good to do it the right way (insert silence).

Nice!

3: Remove OFFSET MODE and the channel is louder or quieter (depending on what you did) yet retains all automation.

Ooh, yes, exactly like that! I figured SOMETHING has this functionality , and as I've been using Studio One for a relatively short while, I was wondering if there's a modifier or some other way to do that after all. But yeah, that sounds very convenient!

Rock Johnson wrote:wouldn't fader automation be simpler and faster?


If you mean my Mixtool use (instead of the procedure described by the original poster), let me explain why I prefer it this way

I like having the channel faders free from automation to see/set the relative levels of all channels when ever I feel like it. I usually have quite a lot of volume automation in a project, and some elements might have it abundantly. Attenuate a hit here, add a bit of level there, accent this part of a phrase, pull back on this one, you get the idea; basically, some tracks have quite detailed volume envelopes.

Now, if I used the default volume envelope for this sort of detailed automation, i.e. automated the channel faders for the detail volume work, I would lose the ability to conveniently check and set the faders after the fact. As a project progresses, many tracks already containing automation, I like the freedom of glancing at the main console, readjusting the relative levels, and keeping them there - at times even pulling the faders of some channels down completely and intuitively raising them one by one to fit the overall mix, not having to worry about the automation at all. If I had all that detail work done as fader automation, adjusting the overall level using the console wouldn't be as convenient.

I know it's totally a preference thing. Some people prefer using fader automation for this stuff and then "correcting" the overall gain using Mixtool (or adjusting the whole envelope levels up/down), but I prefer "leaving the faders loose" and setting them, stationary, at their relative levels, regardless of the volume automation working its magic on the track at the same time (via the Mixtool gain parameter).

And now I'm waiting for someone to say there's actually a key modifier to fully and conveniently change the channel level, including automation, even when dragging an automated fader, hehe. Is there? If there is, the point about preferring to glance at the console to see/set relative levels at any part of the song (and not have the channel faders move according to volume fades at different parts of the song) still stands, though.

oskarq wrote:432Hz is 32 cents down and that's the point.


Of course , that's why I commented on "pitching everything down by 8 Hz."

Edit: and naturally all MIDI instruments have to be adjusted individually. That's just the way it is, if you want to experiment with different tunings.

LMike wrote:Not sure how you pitch everything down by 8hz and get that, in any daw.


"Pitching everything down by 8 Hz" kind of misses the point between frequency and musical pitch anyway... If one literally pitches every note down so that their fundamental frequencies are 8 Hz lower, one ends up with quite a jumble.

Consider, for example, an A note at the bass frequency of 55 Hz. Pitch that down by 8 Hz, and you're somewhere between regular F# and G already! Literally way over one whole tone of difference. For comparison, pitch an A at 3520 Hz the same amount; that's merely like a VERY slight detune/bend

I usually insert a Mixtool and automate that. Using the default volume envelope is a workflow killer, imo.

There should be a "MANAGE" section on the right, with a "Login" menu entry. Use that (even if you're already logged in on the main site) and you should be able to download the files.

This is number one for me as well, by far. I've been spoiled by the phenomenal implementation of these in Live, so I'm often wishing there was functionality like this in Studio One
Studio One Feature Requests » Bug or System Anomaly? Always on Top » Go to message
For some reason this has started to happen during every session now ... I'm not closing and reopening Studio One because of that anymore, would interrupt work too badly. Still, it's a hassle. Mark this as my number two irritation at the moment, eh. (Number one is the erratic track/channel placement and coloring when using multi out instruments.)
