Carlo is Pro Mix Academy’s resident Studio One expert, too! Here he teaches us how to set up and manage the mix window!
Every DAW comes with its own version of a virtual mixer where you can control volume, panning, plugin inserts, effects sends, automation, and more!
The mix window in Studio One is accessible from the View menu. Here it’s called “Console,” and can also be opened using the F3 key. By default, it will open in the bottom of the Edit window.
With the mix window open you can choose to detach it, make it fullscreen, and more. Everything in the mix window is also size-adjustable, so you can make faders longer or shorter, as well as shrinking or expanding your inserts and effects sends.
There are a number of different channel components which you can choose to view or not view in the mixer. These include I/O connections, notes, VCA connections, group assignments, and more. It’s truly a customizable mixer depending on your needs and preferences.
The best way to get acquainted with the virtual mixer in Studio One is to open it up and start clicking around!
