How To Do Automation In Studio One

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 11 - 2012

Wonderful day to ya! Having some fun this morning mixing a few tracks and trying out a few new tricks. I am about to try pitch automation. I recently did a huge set up with all my favorite software. I had everything going through Fl Studio 10. This worked fairly well and I am still testing a few things. What I’ve done is Rewired Fl Studio, Reason, and Reaper; sequencing using Maschine. Everyone wanted to know why would I do all Well, each has something I love, and of course I like trying new things. I am also finding out which set up will make it easiest if I need to use either program. Here’s what I mean: Let’s say I am using Fl Studio but would like to throw in sounds from Reason, and record a hook. This for me is a hassle doing it all in Fl, so I need to use Reaper or Studio One. Or how about Ni Maschine with Fl Studio’s mixer and Reason NNXT..again not convenient inside Fl Studio. So I am making a template where I can load one program and use every single production element I own if I’d like to.

Studio One 2 has been working very well with everything. There’s not much of a learning curve and so far it’s easiest for me to get a decent mix. Presonus has made this DAW basically click and go. Another cool thing is you can do several automated steps on one track without having tons of automation lanes open. Here’s a video which explains Studio One Automation. Remember a lot of this can be done in other the other DAWS. It’s just that I am using Studio One today. I will post about automation in Fl Studio in the near future.

Really easy huh?…let me know if you are using Studio One, as I get more used to it I may need some tips :)..

Great day to you! I hope you and your family are safe..we had power outages, trees down, and a whole lot more here. Crazy tornado type storm caught us off guard but I am grateful, safe, and all is well today. I only need Comcast back on …thank goodness for this Sprint Mobile Hot Spot :)..I am online working because of it….

How are your theory lessons going? I am improving, not quite as fast as I ‘d like but going forward is a wonderful thing. Check out this video which really put something into perspective.

How to Match Chords up with any Melody

The best part for me is when he sings the tune along with showing the chord. I thought “Ah HA!”, now I can hear something that I could not before. The exact key with the exact chord will be much easier to find now. If you are using just a melody and no lyrics, you can hum the melody and use this same technique to find the chords…pretty cool!
