GENERAL MIXING TUTORIALS
In this 2nd Part of a 2 Part video series, I pick up from where we left off last week, and demonstrate how (and when) to use the "Stack" Layer Mode in Impact XT - in addition to the "Edit Sample Offset" function in PreSonus Studio One 4.
In this 1st video of a 2 Part series, I demonstrate 3 of the 4 Layer Modes in Impact XT - more specifically what each of them do, and when to use them.
In this video, I thought I'd go over the basics of how to use the Splitter in PreSonus Studio One. An incredibly powerful tool that offer's a SIMPLE alternate approach to creating complex FX Chains in Studio One.

In this video, I demonstrate my basic workflow for setting up a Mix in PreSonus Studio One - Including Importing Files, Tempo Map, Markers, Time Signature, as well as Colour Coding, Grouping, and Gain Staging.
One of the biggest questions I get from former / current Pro Tools users with respect to Drum Slicing in Studio One, would be "Is there an equivalent to the 'Trigger Pad' setting when using the Slicing mode for quantizing Multi-track Drums?"
In this video I demonstrate how to use the PreSonus Audio Batch Converter to Process and Convert Samples in PreSonus Studio One 4.5 and above.
I love it when new Key Commands are added, especially when it's something I use. In this video, I demonstrate the Activate Previous / Next Layer Key Commands that were added in Studio One 4.5 - more specifically what they do, and when one might consider using them.
New Feature’s and improvement's on existing feature's are always appreciated in an update - but sometimes it’s the little miscellaneous improvements that "squeeze through the cracks" that can really make a huge difference in one’s workflow. In this video, I take a look at a few of the “not so obvious” features that were added in PreSonus Studio One Version 4.5.
In this video I demonstrate the basic differences and approaches for using a Global Automation View vs a Track based Automation view when working in PreSonus Studio One.

In this video I demonstrate how to use the 'Between Each Marker' preference to quickly export multiple files when working in PreSonus Studio One. Using this option vs the traditional "Between Loop" format is an absolute lifesaver when needing to export various files according to pre-defined Markers in Studio One. That being said, there is a fundamental difference between the way this feature works with "Export Mixdown" vs "Export Stems" - Check out the video for more details.
In this video I demonstrate the 'Select Ranges On Tracks' function in PreSonus Studio One. More specifically what it does, and how it can be used to simplify editing automation when working.
VCA’s (added in Version 3) were one of the biggest feature requests in PreSonus Studio One (especially from former Pro Tools users) In this 2nd video of a 2 part series, I demonstrate how to work with VCA's with respect to automation. More specifically, how to render VCA Automation into source tracks - as well as how to merge VCA Automation (static offsets) when needed.
VCA’s (added in Version 3) were one of the biggest feature requests in PreSonus Studio One (especially from former Pro Tools users) In this 1st video of a 2 part series, I demonstrate the basics of VCA's - more specifically how to set them up, what they do, and why they're so incredibly useful.
Using Reference Tracks is a great way to maintain objectivity when mixing - but it can also be a huge pain unless your routing is set up to accommodate. In addition - did you know there is a preference in Studio One that can help when A/B ing between your mix and your reference track(s)?
In this video I demonstrate how to export Raw Audio tracks (Regions) in PreSonus Studio One 4 using a Drag & Drop workflow from the Arrange Window to the Browser.
In this video, I wanted to dig down a little further into some of the questions and comments I received from last weeks video "Tracks vs Channels - Exporting Stems In PreSonus Studio One”. So essentially - a Q & A Video Response.
The 'Export Stems' option in Studio One is an extremely useful way to quickly render out Stems from your Song. But did you know that there are some fundamental differences between using Tracks vs Channels? In this video, I demonstrate the key differences between the 2 methods - as well as when (and why) to use one method over the other.
In this video I demonstrate the 'Automatically Add Envelopes For All Touched Parameters' automation preference in PreSonus Studio One. More specifically when (and why) to use it - and how it interacts when writing plug-in automation.
In this video I demonstrate the main differences between Track Based Automation vs Part Based Automation (a.k.a. Region/Event Based Automation) when working with Instrument tracks in PreSonus Studio One.
In this video I demonstrate the Collapse All Tracks Menu Command In Studio One. More specifically, why it's useful - and when to use it.
In this video I demonstrate how to utilize Folder Tracks and Various Console View Options to help maintain a neat & tidy Arrange Window when working in PreSonus Studio One.
In this video I demonstrate how to set Studio One's preferences so that an Automation Track is automatically created for Bus Channels, FX Channels, & VCA Channels when using PreSonus Studio One. For those coming from other DAW's such as Pro Tools, this may be preferable to the default behaviour.
In this video I demonstrate the recently added "Reduction Level" setting in PreSonus Studio One's Automation preferences. More specifically, what it's meant for - and when (and why) to use it.

In this video, Marcus Huyskens demonstrates the basic signal chain routing of Studio One Mix Engine FX, as well as how the "passthrough" mode can affect the processing.
In this quick tip video, Marcus takes a look at the new behaviour of the "Show Current Parameter" shortcut as of Studio One Version 3.5+.
In this free video tutorial in PreSonus Studio One - Marcus Huyskens demonstrates how to smooth out a vocal Pre-Compression by using volume envelopes to tame harsh sibilant consonants, and correct general level discrepancies in a performance.

In this free video tutorial, team member Marcus Huyskens demonstrates some different ways to manipulate/edit pre-existing automation points within PreSonus Studio One. Although we can select and move automation points with the mouse, sometimes, you need to offset all of the automation globally, on a track, or move specific points or sections in smaller increments.
In this free video tutorial, Marcus gives an in depth overview of how to use the "Match EQ" option within Fabfilter Pro-Q2. FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is designed to help you achieve your sound in the quickest way possible. Via the large interactive EQ display, you can create bands where you need them and select and edit multiple bands at once.
In this free tutorial video, team member Marcus Huyskens gives an in depth overview of using "scenes" within the console in PreSonus Studio One. Scenes are a really handy featured that we can find tucked away within Studio One. By creating different scenes, we can have custom view options to simplify our console when mixing sessions with larger track counts.
In this free video tutorial, Marcus builds upon his last video: How To Create Custom Multi-Band Compressors Using The Splitter in PreSonus Studio One 3 He shows how he uses the Macro Panel within the channel editor in Studio One 3 to simplify adjusting parameters on plugins when using complex splitter setups.
In this free video tutorial for PreSonus Studio One 3, Marcus Huyskens shows us how to use the splitter in Studio One 3 to create custom multi-band compressors.
