Hi

I am completely new to studio one and DAWs in general. I am struggling with making it work for composing a song.

Could anyone give me step by step instruction about how to play and record the instrument plug ins using my MIDI controller keyboard, and to layer tracks so I can put down separate drum beats, piano, bass tracks etc. Or point me to an online resource that would give me instruction on how to start on the system - without assuming anything about my knowledge?

Any help gratefully recieved
