2. I notice in video 3 after typing "Q" to create all the bars in the track that you click on the Q button at the top and a panel of menus appears right underneath. In the first video (see at 3:48 approx.) we start with Q button at the top highlighted blue but no menus, and then you click on the Audio Bend a few seconds later the panel of buttons appears below -- why didn't the Q panel of menus already exist? And does this have something to do with video 3's typing "Q" first?

Audio bend is the stretching aspect of the timing tools.
"Q" is a built in macro if you will that:
1) identifies the transients ( based off of current settings)
2) Quantizes the transients ( based off the current settings)

So it is a quick way to do audio timing adjustments. However I recommend you learn to do it step by step. This way you 1) know what it is doing and 2) have all the controls/settings to make it work better.
For example adjusting threshold just right to pick up the resolution of the feel, or trying what a 1/8 triplet will do to the quantizing vs a 16th etc.

"Control Q" will be you go to key stroke to try out different setting and undo the quantization quickly.


2) I little confused as I do not have time to go through the videos tonight.( they where done three years ago)
The Button "Q" is to open the Quantize toolbar.
It appears in the arranger tools bar as well as the editor toolbar.
They are a little sporadic in terms of where the Q toolbar will appear.
Try them both and you will see a few toggles on and off will change the position of the Q toolbar back and forth between the arranger and the editor view.
The toolbar can also be floated.

Remember when you beat map the guiding track ( say the drums ) is set to not follow in the inspector so that it become your measuring guideline for setting the tempo changes. The other tracks are set to stretch so they follow the tempo changes

Are you also mapping to a down beat ( beat one of the measure) ?
My experience is if you get a measure wrong you will hears things shifting out of time.
That is when I go back and take it 2- 4 bars at a time to find the true downbeats.

You can also use Melodyne to try to detect a more accurate beat for a section of the song..
Look on my YouTube page to see the video on finding an unknown beat.

I have 16 trks of audio from old ADAT machines, lined up. Want to redo some midi trks & improve sonically.
It seems that the ADAT tapes STRETCH so that even though they were cut at 144bpm, the audio slowly pulls away from the midi click, as the songs proceeds. The original sync was SMPTE.

Can anyone help w/ a solution that works?

Let's start with more information.

Assuming the ADAT tracks have no tempo data in them.
When you import them and look at the inspector data do you see the file tempo not set?

When you say they were cut at 144 BPM does that mean the performance was done to a tick track?
( if so this means there will be slight timing variations with a live performance. )

Are you marking/setting the initial file tempo as 144 via the inspector?

After the initial 144 setting are you going through the beat mapping procedure to align the down beats throughout the song?

“Z “Monitoring or Zero Latency is supported as of Studio One 2.6 on the following interfaces:
Hardware Interfaces
• FireStudio Mobile, Project
• AudioBox 22VSL, 44VSL, 1818VSL
• Any 3rd party ASIO 2.0 DM interface device

So...I'm wondering if the Apogee Duet 2 is such a "3rd party ASIO 2.0 DM interface device" in the third bullet.

Chech with Apogee. If it supports Direct Monotoring it will work with S1 Z monitoring.

Not in front of system to verify but there should, be a layers/takes follow edits option in the inspector for each track.

Not in front of system to verify but you can select all note occurrences for a particular not by either alt or ctrl clicking the keyboard on the right. I believe it's also in the manual.
So with couple clicks you can get all the bass register notes to drag to a new track.

This is one of the purposes of this diagram.
Every where there is a (V) icon is a possible gain stage.
I am guessing there are over two dozen places.

One could obsess over each possible junction point in that diagram -

I agree
Although all those are gain points and thus areas that could cause clipping.I would only use it to debug clipping coming from somewhere.

Little confused on your last replay but...

I have the option release audio in background unchecked and my Windows audio device ( Presonus 1818 VSL) set with both Exclusive Options on and I can play S1 in a loop and listen to YouTube on the same device.

You can however download macros fro within the S1 browser files/servers/exchange

Here are few (sorry 3 max) of my more popular ones if someone needs them.
