Setting up with Studio One

In this page we’ll be guiding you through how to get the Dubler Studio Kit setup with PreSonus Studio One on Windows

The first step is to make sure that Dubler is set up correctly in the app. Make sure you have followed the in app steps to calibrate your mic, or use the Dubler USB mic. Once this is done in the audio device settings make sure the virtual MIDI driver is set to on
You can now enter Studio One. On the home page select Configure Audio Device and enter the Audio Setup tab.
In Audio Device select the appropriate audio driver for your output and make sure the Device Block Size is set at 128 samples or below in order to reduce latency. You may need to open the Control Panel for your driver to make sure the block size, or buffer size, matches the size set in Studio One.

IMPORTANT: If you're on windows and you don’t have an audio interface that comes with it’s own ASIO drivers you'll need to use ASIO4ALL as your output in Ableton in order to get low latency. You can find out how to set up ASIO4ALL here.
Navigate to the External Devices tab and select Add in the bottom left
Select New Keyboard at the top of the list, and change the Device Name to Dubler 2. Make sure that all the MIDI channels are highlighted blue. Select Dubler 2 on the Receive From drop down and also select Split Channels at the bottom. Click OK.
The preferences can now be closed.

In a new song project, select the inspector button in the top right of the track you want to control.
In the inspector tab on the left, make sure the In is set to Dubler 2. Next to this you can also select the MIDI channel you want to receive from Dubler.

By default the Pitch side of Dubler sends out MIDI information to channel 1

The Triggers side sends out MIDI information to channel 10

You can change this within the Dubler app on the Assign tab.
Dubler is now ready to use with the armed track.

In order to add dials for MIDI Mapping in Studio One select the small arrow in the top left and select Dubler 2.
Select MIDI learn and then, in the Dubler Assign Tab, select MAP next to each of the dials.
You should then see the dials appear in Studio One. You can now exit the window.

MIDI Capture

Dubler MIDI Capture is an instrument plugin in Studio One that works alongside our standalone application. You can see the full tutorial on what the MIDI capture plugin does here

Within Studio One, select ‘Track’ → ‘Add Instrument Track’.
Once this track is loaded, on the right hand side you can select ‘Instruments’, then scroll down to the ‘Vochlea’ folder and drag and drop Dubler MIDI Capture into your timeline.
(NOTE: Dubler MIDI Capture is an Instrument plugin not a MIDI or Audio Effect)
In order for MIDI Capture to work it must be connected to the Dubler 2 app. You can do this by selecting ‘Open Dubler 2’ in the VST. Once Dubler is connected it will display ‘Connected to Dubler VST’ in the app.
It’s also important to note that for MIDI Capture to work smoothly, you must be in a Key Lock and have the Play tab open in the Dubler app.
MIDI Capture will reflect any changes or settings that you have selected in the Dubler app such as Key Restrictions. Once connected, you’re ready to record.

You can set up a separate track with any sound you want to control, and arm it to receive MIDI info in real time from Dubler 2 as per the instructions above. The track containing MIDI capture does not need to be armed or have the input set to Dubler2.

All you need to do is then press the spacebar to start recording with MIDI Capture. You do not need to press record in Ableton, unless you also want to record your idea in real time as well.
The recorded clip will be visible within MIDI capture which you can click and drag into Studio One.
