Studio One 5.5 added a feature that lets you convert “straight” chords into strums easily. Just select your chord and start dragging a note in it and then (and it’s important to start dragging first which is awkward, but you get used to it) press ctrl+alt (Windows) or cmd+option (Mac).

And that’s a great workflow improvement. But apparently, it doesn’t take how real guitarist strum into account. This short tip shows you how to take this feature to its natural conclusion:

TL;DW: just move the strums to end on the beat, not start.

About a month ago I bought both ATOM SQ and the “classic” ATOM with the intent of keeping just one. I gave myself a month to get acquainted and here’s my review. I also decided to give my ATOM (the non-SQ one) away to one of you. Watch the review for details.

And here’s my TL;DW summary:

  • if you use Impact XT and patterns — buy it
  • if you don’t have any controllers and don’t play piano — maybe
  • if you have a decent controller with endless encoders, etc. — skip it

And if you decide to buy one, you can use one of the links below and I will get a little “kickback” while you pay nothing extra:
