This book is advertised to be for beginners to Studio One software. I found this book to be written more for someone who is not only new to Studio One, but new to computers, recording, music, life, etc. There are only 92 pages, of which, over one-third covers just how to install the software...down to every little minute detail about how to put a disc in a drive to how to double-click on a mouse. The section explaining what MIDI is was written in a way that left me confused about what MIDI is (and I knew all about it before reading this book!)
The second third of the book goes into boring detail about how to setup the software, devices, what a device is, what kind of devices there are, what a computer is, etc. The final third is a quick "Bum's rush" through some of the simplest tasks of adding a basic track, editing it, adding a loop, bussing a channel and mixing a few tracks.
I read this book in about an hour and I felt that I still had insufficient...
While there is some useful tidbits in this book it is pitched as a beginners introduction "with no prior training". Not so. No term is defined before it is used making it nearly impossible to understand the author. Don't buy this as you'd be much better off purchasing "Power Tools for Studio One 2" by Larry the O instead. Folks might get frightened away by the title, but I assure you it is much more for the beginner than this one.
Although this book is very thin(90 pages), it contains a lot of information for those who are new to digital recording and using DAW's(Digital Audio Workstations). The sections on installing the software and setting up your system are very well presented and will get you up and recording very quickly(I even had my none tech wife read the first couple of chapters and even she understood the concepts). That says a lot about the authors writing style and word choices.
I highly reccomend this book to any one who has just gotten into DAW recording with Studio One 2 or even some of the other DAW's out there. There is a great deal of cross platform information that may help with other DAW programs.
