Studio One 5.2 review

I think this is a great video. Lots of excellent information. Well done

JOEL N (Redding, US)
Excellent Professional Instruction!

I have several of David’s courses and I can truly say he is a top notch teacher. His video’s are professional, expertly filmed and the course material is presented in a well thought out, logical format. You can’t find better instruction anywhere. If you are on the fence, jump down and run to sign up for one of his great courses!

Studio One 5.2 video tutorial

Very good run through the key functions of the Studio One DAW. Suitable for beginners and delivered in a interesting and accessible way. Well worth the money.

Studio One 5.2 video class

David, the video training was well organized and very helpful. It didn’t take me long to realize that Studio One is a pretty powerful DAW. I have been using Reason a long time and wanted to use more Kontact based sample libraries and your class was terrific for learning what I needed to get up to speed faster. Your pacing and clear connection in the steps were so thorough that it really helps me better understand how all of the other capabilities of the DAW can fit into the workflow. I enjoyed the format so much that I poked around in the other available classes and have already purchased the “Killer Vocals” class. I am sure it won’t be my last. David’s personal touch of following up personally was also an interesting unexpected when it appeared I had some trouble with the order (I didn’t but my phone seemed to have a problem completing the sale so had to do it from my studio rig and it worked perfect) was that extra touch that was really impressive. There are a lot of videos out there on YouTube, and Gregor and Joe Gilder are terrific, but it is good to have a “friend” with a little different approach to tie it all together. I encourage anyone looking to arrange and make your vocals better to check out those classes also! Make Great Music, even if it is just for yourself!! John

Studio 1 5.2. Course

This course has been a huge help, for me, to transition out of a hardware studio engineer, to the Digital world, pretty in depth, and easy to follow, I am looking forward to more courses!

Ron Woskow (Tenino, US)
Studio One 5 pro

Hi David,the course on Studio one 5 pro is great! Presonus should include your video as part of the S! pro package. A small increase in cost could add to the enjoyment of S1 pro 10 fold! thanks for the great job. Ron.

Hi Dave!
Glad to see you are still making training videos. As you might remember, I own a number of your previous products, and I see you have produced a new one for Studio One. I find that thanks to you I am starting to understand how to use the product in my Studio. Cudos!

Presonus Studio One 5.2 Video Tutorial

I'm very old school and old!!.and used hardware.where you crank it up and press record button n go for even daw technology is amazing I admit bewildered by it.david to the rescue he explains it all to all levels of experience to me simply.and to more advanced people more complex procedures. With the best Will in the world YouTube videos are fun to watch but not informative as these PROAUDIOEXP courses.can't say how happy I am.keep up the good work David
