Normally I'm using Studio One Professional as my DAW. But
since PreSonus launched Studio One Free a while ago I was
curious what you can do with it. So I temporarily
turned my Professional version into the Free one and started
to make a simple demo arrangement using several Scope
synthesizers, my Roland JV-2080 and a Roland R-8M for the
the following pages I'll show how to do the initial setup of
the external devices and the audio routing, use Instrument
(think MIDI) Tracks and Audio Tracks to build the
arrangement and also add some automation. After that, all
the tracks will be mixed down to a single stereo track.
Finally there's a brief overview of the different available
Studio One versions to conclude our short Studio One trip.
This article can't be an in-depth tutorial and will only
scratch the application's surface, but it will hopefully
give you an idea what's possible with Studio One Free and
how to use it with Scope.
the name suggests, 'Studio One Free' is free. That means it
if you want to give it a try, just
grab your copy from the PreSonus Download Page.
