Studio One General Discussion » Just what is the story with the user manual? Why are half the features not documented? » Go to message
Just to add to Lmike's point(while adding to this thread and there by increasing it's life) Even if all the info is present in the Manual there still will be many who will refuse to reference it I'm afraid. We still will have to answer threads with "refer to Section such and such on page this or that", the old RTFM and such. It's one of the pitfalls of a program that is easy to get going in which Studio One is.

I have countless times had to do just that in hopes that others would be encouraged to use what's available(except for the RTFM part).

It is late in the game to get this topic going as has been stated but then again it doesn't hurt to ask nor hope that a solution is at hand for those that can benefit from it. We have all seen more extraordinary requests take up space here on the General Discussion forum when they should be posted in the appropriate forum in this case it may as well be a topic for discussion if not for any thing else..

I nominate jpettit, we would get great graphics and a well thought out Manual.... seriously.

I think someone volunteered earlier at least to compile it.

You may try yo check the box in the Options Panel "Release Audio Device in background" under the Advanced Options Icon. Is it set to the Systems drivers or ASIO?. It would seem there is a setting somewhere in Studio One that may causing the System to delay closing.

It's hard to tell, Hopefully it can be narrowed down or someone else may have a solution.

Are you not familiar with the groundbreaking case: Gorman v Movable Loops?

I agree that the manual does need some more detail. What I don't understand is the 3 pages worth of mad about the situation.

We need Michael1985 on board with this. THAT guy can get $h1t DONE.


In what possible way does this post help to tamp down the rhetoric?, it wouldn't bother me if it was a 100 pages or more.

Calling out people for posting what may be construed as nonsense will only fan the flames higher my friend.

Some in principle but a lot in practicality. If there was better documentation before, in those three years we have used the program, we could have gotten a better grip on things without finding them out ourselves(or answering the 100 some odd questions that get posted here)

In my case I would hope to spare others this hassle, a comprehensive Manual would benefit in that case.

What soundcard are you using? and what are the drivers set to?

That looks to be a driver conflict with the sound card, especially USB drivers which some are very touchy at 96Khz.

Hopefully it can be addressed with a driver change or update.

I'm always an advocate for things that are conducive to the creative process, color is one of them.

For some people, use-case scenarios, which reinforce the dry parameter explanations, are the most important part of documentation, and explains why support forums like this one are so important to user adoption.

Also, most companies don't think of documentation as being part of their marketing material. Those that do, make sure it's complete, and easy to use. Additionally, they create a separate "Quick Start Guide" or add a section at the beginning of the main reference document that covers this. Easy to find introduction videos help with this too.

Because everyone learns in different ways it's always best to cover all of the "media" bases.


Why on earth would anyone want to bury themselves in a manual during a time limited demo period? Your premise makes more sense for someone who has brought the program. Usually most people want to get into the program to see if it easily works with their idea of workflow and is not too complicated to get the job done WITHOUT checking the manual. This is especially true for the creative programs such as this, nothing gets in the way more than having to stop to figure out what to do next in the middle of a recording or mixing session and when that is limited by time in a demo that should mean LESS time in manual reference as a practical approach to efficient use of the time allowed.

After you make the decision to purchase and use the platform is really when you have sufficient time to dig deeper and that is where a comprehensive manual should be a standard requirement which in this case needs to be implemented. Studio One is easy but it is also deep, a lot deeper than the inadequate documentation that is provided at the moment so one is in definite need and should be provided.

Thats part of buying the license in my humble opinion.

On the main menu go to "Studio One", Click on "Options", in the Panel Click on "Advanced" Icon, in the tabs click on" Audio", go down about 8 boxes and make sure that "Release Audio Device in background" is checked.

Now when ever you open your internet browser and click on it it should give you audio, also go to the "Audio Setup" Icon and check to see if your device is set for Windows Audio(or Core audio) or ASIO, if it is ASIO it will only play audio for whatever window is in focus, With Windows audio (or Core audio on a Mac) all open audio programs should play.

Hope that helps.
Digital Audio Recording » Did you ever wonder what the difference was between bit depths? » Go to message
When you sum up the rounding errors even at 32 bits precision after they multiplied umpteen thousands of times over would the errors be that noticeable to the average listener, probably not in the grand scheme of things.

Sometimes our own over critical ears(and minds) get in the way to what should be an exceptible mix. "If it sounds good it is good" and worrying whether you got enough bits to cover rounding errors(even at 32bits) shouldn't be one of the concerns on the way to a great mix.

At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Digital Audio Recording » Did you ever wonder what the difference was between bit depths? » Go to message
Which goes to prove that a 32 bit mix resolution(software not hardware i.e. internal resolution) is more than enough considering most recording is done at maximum of 24 bits these days. when you see the range which by the way goes both ways(above and below zero on the wave scale) there is more than enough dynamic range to cover even compositions like orchestral recordings. The only thing gained at a higher resolution would be less quantization errors in plugin processing, again probably beyond the audible range of most average listeners.

There really is no audible noise when the floor is pushed that far down in 32 bits and in some respects 64 bit mix resolution is in my opinion overkill.
Studio One General Discussion » is studio one software better the the other software » Go to message
I kinda had a feeling this thread would devolve into silliness. This is too subjective of a question I mean, is Studio One better than all MY other hosts for ME.... yes.

Is Studio One better than all the host's that you have had any experience with?... I don't know, that's a question that can only be answered by you(the OP).


Oh and thank's for allowing me to fly my Fanboi flag.

In your Studio One Browser, click on the Files tab and expand the tree to where you install them(preferably on a separate drive), in other words any where you please.

Hope that helps.

I don't like over-moderating. That person over at kvr that used to be there overmoderated to the point of silliness. I don't really see the problem here. Then again, if it was locked, then my silly post wouldn't be here


Your right of course(about over moderating).... but these "DOH!" threads do get redundant and monotonous.

... and THAT's no fun(also).
Studio One Feature Requests » Option to close document without quitting program » Go to message
I know it may be a little more work but, I wonder if there is a way these request toptcs that are already available could be moderated as such.

maybe a lock and a reply stating that the feature exists and a reference to the manual i.e. section number and title.

I know it probably wont happen but I can dream can't I .... by the way, you Mods do decent job as it is.
