Here is a video review and Studio One 3 compatibility overview on the Presonus CS-18Ai. This video goes through nearly every controllable option for the CS18 with Studio One 3. Remember, this is not an audio mixer and has no audio options like its Studiolive siblings (unless you use it with the RM mixer series by Presonus).
The Goal of this site is to help those just getting started or just starting to think about setting up their own Home Recording Studio. It's easier than you might think but there are definitely some "Rules Of The Road" to follow.
This site is primarily based on videos I have created as well as links to videos others have created. I try to give you as much assistance with as little reading as possible. If a picture is worth 1000 words, a video might just be priceless.
Also, there is a video request area where you can ask for examples of certain techniques, weather it's mixing, mastering or even micing drums and guitar amps. I'll either point you to a video that already exists or whip one up myself.
Now be aware that most of what you'll find here is one man's opinion (mine) and not the "Holy Grail" of how to do all these things. I don't claim to be a "Know It All" but I feel it may be helpful to many folks out there who have limited funds but a ton of desire to start recording their own music at home.
My DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) or recording software of choice is Presonus Studio One 3 Professional. So all of my examples will be with that software. Many of the videos here can be viewed as Tutorials, demonstrating the features of Studio One 3 and several pieces of Presonus hardware but the overall techniques can be applied to almost any DAW.
I use mostly Presonus software and hardware for my studio business as well as my hobby based projects. Email me -firstname.lastname@example.org
