GENERAL MIXING TUTORIALS
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 Studio One Quick Tip video I demonstrate how to select multiple pads in Impact XT in Studio One Version 4.1.1 & above. This can be extremely useful when adjusting the outputs of multiple pads at once (in addition to other parameters).
In this video I demonstrate how to create a Macro in Studio One 4 that will automatically help gain stage your virtual instruments when needed. In addition, I also outline some other workflow benefits to using a Macro vs manually adjusting the global output volume on VI's.
In this video, I'll show you how to go about importing your Markers, Tempo Map, and any Time-Signature changes from Pro Tools into your Studio One 4 Song.
In this video, I demonstrate how to go about exporting an AAF from a Pro Tools 2018 Ultimate session - which can then be imported into PreSonus Studio One 4 via AAF Import. In addition, we will also talk about a couple things to be aware of when working with AAF's in general.
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, 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.
