How to tell the duration of a song in studio one. I don't see this information on the screen any where. This is the most asked question I get and can't ever answer without a guess. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

The default is 5:00 Min as shown in New Song Setup, however the song won't stop at that time, Studio One will additional time as your recording progresses. 

In the song itself, the timing is set to Bars by default. You can click on the dropdown and change it to Seconds to view the length of your song in Minutes and Seconds. 

When you export your song, you'll need to set your Export range so Studio One knows what length to bounce.
