Carlo is Pro Mix Academy’s resident Studio One expert, too! This tutorial shows how to make a new track and start recording.
If you’ve downloaded Studio One software, chances are you want to start recording music! To do this you’ll need to add tracks to your session onto which you can record. The keyboard shortcut to open an Add Track dialogue box is simply “T.”
From the Add Track window you’ll be able to customize a ton info about your track, including its name, color, the type of track, and more. Studio One very handily includes many presets depending on what instrument you’re recording too.
Add a new audio track and make sure its input corresponds to whichever input you’re using on your interface. Record enable the track by clicking the big record button. Now you should see signal coming into Studio One, and you can adjust the preamp gain on your interface to set the proper level.
To record, simply press the Record button in the transport control portion of the Edit window and you’re off!
