Enabling The Audio Driver

Studio One 2 was designed with PreSonus interfaces in mind, so the 
Presonus audio interface setup is quick and easy. When Studio One 2 is launched, by 
default you will be taken to the Start page. On this page, you will find document
management and device-configuration controls, as well as a customizable 
artist profile, a news feed, and links to demos and tutorials from PreSonus. 
If you have an Internet connection on your computer, these links will be 
updated as new tutorials become available on the PreSonus Web site.

Complete information on all aspects of Studio One  are available within the 
Reference Manual PDF located on the Studio One >> Help >> Contents of the 
software. The information in this tutorial covers only the basic aspects of 
Studio One Artist and is intended to get you set up and recording as quickly
as possible.



Start Page: Setup Area Shows Active Audio Driver and Sample 
Rate and Provides Quick Links to Configure Audio and MIDI.

In the middle of the Start page, you will see the Setup area. Studio One 
Artist automatically scans your system for all available drivers and selects 
a driver. By default, it will choose a PreSonus driver, if one is available.



If you do not see your PreSonus Audio Interface listed on the Start page when you 
launch Studio One, click on the Configure Audio Devices link in 
the Setup area to open the Audio Setup Options window.



In the Audio Device menu, select your PreSonus Audio Interface. We will use the Firestudio as an example.


 Click the Apply button and then OK.


Creating a New Song from a Pre-made Studio One  Template


1. From the Start page, select Create a new Song.


2. In the Browser window, name your Song and choose the directory in which 
you’d like it saved. You’ll notice a list of templates on the left. The interface 
templates will create a Song with tracks and routing set up for for each of our individual audio interfaces we make 
and patch them to each of the main outs/ audio returns. These templates are custom build for each individual interface. So if you had a 4 channel PreSonus interface and opened the corresponding template, you would see 4 tracks set up, routed and all would be armed for recording. No additional setup/routing would be required. All that would be required of you then would be to do at this point would be to hit the Record button and then you are off into the world of digital audio recording. Scary easy with a pre-established template.


3. Select this template and click “OK.”
