Thank you so much, for this article! The sidechain trick with the pro-filter and split to automate volume control is just brilliant!!!

Sorry I didn’t see your post sooner. You’re welcome!

how to stop instruments from clashing together?

Arranging is more of an art than a science. (Cop out answer, I know). But even with a great arrangement, instruments can clash, the kick and the bass being the usual suspects.

Some ideas:

  • Use an EQ to reduce the clashing frequency range on the instrument that’s less important.
  • Use a sidechaining compressor to duck one of the instruments when another is playing
  • Use a multiband sidechaining compressor to duck the clashing frequencies on one instrument when the other is playing.

All of the above are mixing tricks, useful when the arrangement itself works. If the arrangement doesn’t work, I’m afraid it’s back to the drawing er… arranging board.

my studio one presence has no presets. How can I get sounds in it ?

Check your Presonus Account. In addition to the S1 executable download, there should be soundset downloads there. Also, Presence can load up .sf2 (soundfont) and .sfz files, and you can find these all over the web.

I have a laptop running windows 7 on a core i3. I have a casio wk-7500 connected to the usb port as per the casio manual. I downloaded and installed ST1 Free and it appears to be running ok but I am not getting any soimd either thru the kybds on-board speakers or my laptops speakers/audio-out jack for instrument tracks. Audio tracks record and play back over the laptops mic and speaker with truly bad audio quality, but at least its noise. Am I missing a piece of equipment for audio input and

The quality of mics and speakers shouldn’t be an issue if you’re not getting sound at all. Did you correctly configure the audio in Studio One to use your sound card? Make sure, before starting StudioOne, that no other application that could be using the sound drivers is running. Also, for better results, try getting Asio4All, and setting S1 to use those drivers - might give you much better performance.

I've been using Studio One free for a while now (simply can't afford a higher end DAW) and i feel well versed in it. the thing i don't know how to do is add new instruments or plugins. i read your post about S1 free and you said there was a work around to do so, but i can't figure it out for the life of me. i have a lot of plugins that i use in ableton live lite that i'd like to be able to use in studio one as well.

The closest thing to a workaround is to use soundfonts and sfz sounds (found all over the web) with the included Presence instrument (see this post). Otherwise, you’ll have to fork over some money for an upgrade.

Configuring Battery 4 Library without the installer

So let’s say you’re doing a clean installation of Native Instruments Battery or Komplete. And let’s say you tell the installer not to install Battery’s factory library, because you already have it on a separate hard drive from a prior installation. Spoiler Alert: If you finish the installation in this manner, you will not be able to specify the library location directly inside Battery.
