REVIEW - The Presonus CS-18Ai

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).

Studio One 3 - The Next Standard

STUDIO ONE 3.0 is here and man, it is something else on another level. No DAW that I know can do some of the stuff V3 can do and it will just get better. From new features to a killer new selection of Plugins, loops and add-ons, you can't get a better DAW!!

Lipsham&Geib Songwriting Site

We would like to welcome everyone to another awesome resource option in the Home Studio Trainer family. Songwriting can be a nightmare for a great many people but it doesn't have to be. These Podcasts should really help anyone trying to find their way through the Songwriting adventure. 

HST Studio One Support Group on Facebook

The biggest success so far for Home Studio Trainer. Become a member of the HST Studio One Support Group on Facebook. Over 500 members now and just a TON of help and information. I run a tight group so follow the rules and report any bad eggs that you see spoiling the flow of information.  Check it out!

HST Songwriting For S1 Users

Check Out the Songwriting For S1 Users group. A great group for sharing songs, getting opinions and advice on lyrics and structure to possibly take your song to the next level or simply share with the group. It's a great place to meet new people with different songwriting experiences. See you there.

Why Studio One?

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 -homestudiotrainer@yahoo.com
