asked Dec 1, 2017 in Studio One 3 by joeypinter-bilek (220 points)
hello everyone, this is my first of many questions i will have. as a former sonar user, i bought studio one today. i have so many questions so i'll just start with something simple.

1. can i download the users manual so i can print it?

2. can someone point me to the best videos for studio one?

3. just as a test i tried to load superior drummer 3 into a new project and got totally lost. is there any tutorials pertaining

to SD3?

as i said, i've been using cakewalk since 2002 and i'm thoroughly disgusted with them. i would appreciate any thoughts, ideas or suggestions anyone may have.

i look forward to hearing from all of you.
