Josh Harris Running with Studio One

PreSonus has announced that Up and Running with Studio One, a two-hour course of video instruction on PreSonus Studio One DAW, featuring producer and remixer Josh Harris, is now available at lynda.com.

“Audio is a segment within our online library of tutorials that is quickly growing in popularity among music professionals,” said David Franz, lynda.com content manager for audio. “Up and Running with Studio One represents a significant addition to our library that gives learners a great introduction to the software.”

In his Studio One course, Harris quickly demonstrates how to work with the powerful, yet easy-to-learn DAW, beginning with the Start page and with setting up your artist profile and audio devices. He then shows how to set up and start recording a new song, including punching in and using track layers.

Next, Harris moves into editing audio and MIDI, explaining such important editing functions as comping, trimming, and time-stretching audio; quantizing MIDI; and editing MIDI velocities. He then covers the main mixing features, including using effects chains and presets and working with automation. He also discusses the unique mastering features of the Studio One Project page. Harris wraps up the course by demonstrating how to share music with the world, including publishing songs to SoundCloud®, promoting songs on Nimbit®, and using PreSonus Exchange.

To promote the new course, lynda.com is offering a 7-day trial membership to all registered Studio One users.

PreSonus PRM1

PreSonus has announced it is offering a free PRM1 reference microphone with a purchase of the StudioLive 24.4.2 digital mixer with Smaart.

We’re celebrating the release of PreSonus® Universal Control 1.7 with integrated Rational Acoustics Smaart® audio-analysis and optimization software – and we want to spread the good cheer! So if you buy a StudioLive™ 24.4.2 digital mixer between March 1 and May 31, 2013, you’ll not only get a great mixer and software bundle – including Universal Control 1.7 with Smaart – you will also get a free PreSonus PRM1 precision reference microphone!

Smaart Measurement Technology™ provides a spectrograph and real-time analyzer (RTA) that let you see, graphically, what’s going on in your mix and quickly fix frequency problems and squelch feedback. But that’s just the beginning. The new Universal Control 1.7 adds three amazing Smaart wizards that make it easy to view the frequency response of a venue, quickly calculate and set delay-system timing, and verify output connectivity. Now you can quickly tune your PA to whatever venue you’re in-no engineering degree required!

To use these new wizards, you’ll need a reference, or “measurement,” microphone like the PRM1 – a super clean, omnidirectional mic with a flat frequency response for capturing the sound in the room as accurately as possible.

Until May 31, the purchase of a StudioLive 24.4.2 comes with a free PRM1 reference mic ($129 USD value). This offer is valid at all U.S. PreSonus dealers and at dealers in several other nations. Customers outside of the U.S. should check with their local dealers to find out whether they are participating.

Hal Leonard publishes Studio One for Engineers and Producers

Studio One for Engineers and Producers

Hal Leonard Books has announced it is shipping Studio One for Engineers and Producers, a Quick Pro Guide is specifically designed to help engineers and producers who are already comfortable using another DAW software platform make the transition to Studio One.

The author and audio engineer Bill Edstrom says: “I’ve done projects in just about every DAW on the market. To use most of these systems you need to be in a very technical frame of mind. I was looking for something simpler – something to get creative songwriting ideas out. That’s when I discovered Studio One.”

Studio One for Engineers and Producers starts by relating Studio One’s layout and functionality to other common DAWs, to identify the most important similarities and differences. It then follows the creative process through the normal progression of a modern recording/production. This new cross-platform (Mac/PC) DAW is built from the ground up for speed, efficiency, and power; Studio One for Engineers and Producers is the perfect tool to shorten the pathway from installation to inspiration!

The book is accompanied with 12 new video tutorials covering the key concepts. Studio One for Engineers and Producers demonstrates the creative, practical, and technical benefits provided by PreSonus in this modern, well-developed, flexible, and user-friendly application. All instruction is presented in straightforward and simple language that gets right to the point, taking into consideration the need for amateurs, home studio owners, and commercial professionals to get up to speed very quickly. Readers will enjoy the numerous tips and real world examples. Edstrom adds: “I was recording with Studio One as a canvas for creativity. But I realized that I could produce music end to end without really needing to use other tools. In short, Studio One is fun to use!”

The book is available to purchase for $16.99 USD.
