Thanks Johnny very helpful to a new Studio one user, lots of great ideas to mull over, somewhat different from Sonar but nice to see how to approach it in Studio one.

I thought these were great questions so I did a little video for you to answer them. I will send it to the email address in your profile. Let me know if it helps.

nicely done. Walking through this was extremely helpful. I will have to go back though as a lot of the quick clicking lost me. Going from Solos to full mix etc. hiding vs removing etc.
2 quick quetions:
A) inserting reverb into buses. I've always been told to use send tracks for delay and reverb. partially to save on CPU usage, and partially to be efficient with things like harmonies. (sitting correctly in the background as harmonies are usually for background anyway.
B.) Use of Limiter. Ian Stuart and several other well respected mastering engineers always say to keep your db at no higher than -1 because regarding loudness, it's supposed to be "perceived" Loudness, as opposed to just LOUDER. Also, S.1 has presets that are specifically titled: "Master" So...why did you leave the limiter at default? Also, when I've attempted to increase the input on the limiter I've wound up with pumping. Can you give me in site on why? I always work real hard to keep the mix track levels well below and no higher than minus 6 db for gain staging and for plenty of headroom. (and do the loudness thing later in the process using ahem limiter.) So where am I making this mistake(s)?
Thanks, great tutorial series...I will be reviewing these all over again till I get your comments back.
