Presonus Professional (Software & Plug-Ins)
« on: July 11, 2012, 11:09:29 AM »
Greetings,

I've recently purchased the full verion of Presonus Studio One (Professional), and have to say I'm extremely impressed with it and the potential use it has in creating ambient music. I have mainly been using hardware sources and with Studio One's capabilities, VST's seem to be the way to go for me now. I've heard that Chad Kettering uses Presonus Studio One Pro, and find that encouraging.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with Studio One Pro, and if you have any tips and tricks with it in creating your own ambience. I realize this question is quite broad but so is ambient music. Really what I'm asking is what are some of your expriences in creating ambient music with this software. Getting your ideas has a whole will help me formulate my own.

Thanks,
Dave

Chad's the guy to contact...  I know others use it, but I can't think of anyone off hand.

I've messed around with the Studio One demo version and like it enough that I intend to buy a license soon. I don't have any power-user tips, though.

I've already completed one song using the software. Last night I began on another one where I expect to have about 20 tracks to complete the song. I'm on track 3 now.  ::)

The reverbs are amazing. The reverb timing length is great. Although the reverb was created by Presonus, it very much reminds me of Lexicon verbs. The professional version has SO many options it's insane. The workflow, drag & drop, project, Studio Live, Melodyne, all the plug-ins, and other included effects make the software a one all be all (at least for me). It's so nice that you can create and save effects and import the same effects into new projects. I'm sure you two probably use more than one keyboard...I've discovered while one will suffice but two or three can make your writing & playing more functional. While writing & recording last night I realized life would be much easier if I would get another.

To mgriffin, if you'd like, perhaps we could make this post a place to converse about our experiences with Studio One once you get your full version? The effects in the software is extremely fun to mess with. It's turning me into a nerd. ;-) haha.
