Wow! Fantastic video that will help me a lot. Brand new to all of this and I was referred to you by Lee Hazelwood from the PreSonus FB group. Trying to go through all of this systematically to get up and running. I have Studio One 3. Audiobox 22vsl and a MacBook Pro computer. Now to sort thru where to begin. Should I only watch Studio One 3 stuff or should I go thru other versions to begin? Looks like I need to become a member as well.

Great video - thanks. BUT you don't show or say anything about the settings on the knobs ON the AUDIOBOX 22vsl itself - this is causing some confusion.
I am also curious what settings are "acceptable" or recommended for the ASIO latency - I mean you show it set to 2048 in the video and say that 64 would be like ZERO, BUT what about 128 or 256 ? What drawbacks , if any, or reasons would come into play that would prohibit this or that it would not be recommended ? I just don't understand the meaning of these latency values and how they relate to recording tracks with monitoring....


Ok, let me start with the Latency settings. The Higher the number, the less your computer has to work BUT you will have more delay between when you speak and hear it back. Now, the lower the number, the harder it is for the computer to get that signal to your ears the moment you say it. So, for a good medium setting I use 256. There is a small delay but even for my professional projects everyone seems happy. If you have a computer with an i7 CPU and 16GB of ram, you couls use 128 with no problem. But try them all and see where your system is happiest.

As for the settings on the front of the Audiobox, the MIXER knob should be set to "VSL" for proper monitoring out of Studio One. This setting will ensure you hear all your effects and volume levels when you are recording. The input gain knobs should be pretty simple to set. Make sure you don't see clip lights while recording. This means you have too much input going to track and all your recordings will be distorted.

The headphone and main out knobs should be self explanatory. Any speakers plugged into the back are controlled by the "Main" and headphones are controlled by the "Phones"

I'm new to Studio One and AudioBox 22VSL. This is a great video for newbees to get started. I do have a question. I'm a trumpet player and I want to record over some rhythm section tracks I have. Do you have any advice on micing a trumpet? I'm using an AT2020 Audio-Technica mic. Thanks
