ATB on Studio One

06/03/2019

Producer, DJ and songwriter ATB-also known as Andre Tanneberger, is a 25-year veteran of the international music business. His sharp rise began when he founded his first project, Sequential One, in 1993. After a string of hits until 1998, Andre moved on to focus on his own music as ATB. When his debut single 9 PM (Till I Come) shot to the very top of the UK charts and scored top 10 successes in many other countries around the globe. He followed with an impressive string of hits like Ecstasy , Let U Go, What About Us, Move On, When It Ends It Starts Again, and Connected. Gold and platinum awards in numerous territories underlined his status, mirrored by his constant presence in the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 rankings for a decade and a half. ATB is one of just a handful of musicians to have emerged from the German club scene to become worldwide superstars-from Australia to Asia, Mexico to Poland, Russia and, above all, in the USA.

Given his impressive resume, we're really glad to report that ATB is an enthusiastic Studio One user. We were able to have a Q&A session with him recently where he talked about his use of Studio One.

What PreSonus products have you used and which do you currently use?

Presonus Studio One is by far my favorite PreSonus product. I switched from Apple Logic Pro years ago. The other PreSonus tool I'm using is the Classic Faderport which is absolutely essential for me.

For what applications are you using Studio One Professional?

I'm Using Studio One Professional for the entire process of creating music. Starting with composing, sound design, going over to recording, editing, mixing and also mastering, I simply do everything in Studio One. I do have three workspaces so I can work from everywhere. Most of the times I'm in my main studio in Bochum, Germany to write and produce songs for my project ATB.

What led you to choose Studio One? Was it the company's reputation, audio quality, ease of use, specific features, price, other factors?

Honestly, I never thought about the price. I found this demo CD of Studio One in a friend's office at Musicstore Germany back in 2013 and asked him What the hell is this? He told me some things about Studio One and that he really likes some features. I went back in my studio, checked the demo version and the next day I switched over from Logic Pro to Studio One. The reason was the speed of creating music. The personalized folders with my favorite plugins and favorite plugin settings, the audio editing, the speed and look of the GUI, and the audio quality which sounded awesome. So many features like dragging and dropping ideas to my faves folder including MIDI and all plugins made me so much faster while creating music. And this is absolutely essential to me. Tools are there for pushing your creativity, not to outbreak it.

What Studio One features have proven particularly useful and why?

I love the scratchpad as it makes arranging super easy. This is something which helps me to be very fast in trying new arrangements and in cutting out or copying entire parts of a track. Also, many drag & drop functions are really helpful, like saving channel strips via drag & drop. The macros are great tools to speed up steps while editing.

How does Studio One compare to other DAWs you have used?

Studio One is faster than most other DAWs and also very intuitive. How often did I think, How great it would be to simply do this and that to reach my goal like cutting my master, doing fades and just drag and drop it to my master folder in Studio One and it worked! Also, the integration of Melodyne is the ultimate weapon. I'm saving so much time and I can change things on the run without any bridge or without using it as a stand-alone app. It feels like I have an all-in-one solution.

Which Studio One feature or concept doesn't get enough spotlight (or isn't talked about enough) in your opinion?

What we mentioned while talking to other producers like the JUNKX team-Robin Schulz, etc.: they worked on Ableton Live and never thought that Studio One gives you the amount of speed you need to use your creativity as much as possible. It can be so fast and may other producers don't know about it!! The integration of Melodyne and other apps via ARA is something which is really amazing and some producers might not know about it.

Also, most guys we've talked about Studio One over the last three years thought that it's a DAW for rock music producers. Not a very modern and fast developing producer tool also for electronic music and pop etc.

Any useful tips/tricks or interesting stories based on your experience with Studio One that would be of interest to our user base?

Using the drag & drop function for MIDI files in case you're having an idea or sound which doesn't fit to the track you're actually working at but which could really be amazing and inspiring for another one is a great tool. You'll never forget any idea you once had, as you can create an acoustic note in a second.

Any final comments about PreSonus and Studio One?

I'm really looking forward to new developments in Studio One. I'm sure you guys will have the next surprise already in your pocket
