      I'm trying to figure out how to use the console shaper in Studio One properly.

      I'll start by setting levels, and then applying the console shaper. But I find there is a lot of clipping happening because of it. Should I be concerned? Should I readjust my levels, or should I worry about the clipping later?

        Hey Parrish,

        What you are hearing with the console shaper is analog distortion, not digital clipping, so whether to be concerned depends on the effect you are going for. If you're going for a really clean sound, especially in certain styles (bluegrass, jazz, classical, etc.) then you might want to adjust the levels. But if it's pop/rock etc. then it might be what you want. Using console shaper will make you re-think how you gain-stage in Studio One, so I would put it on first, then set levels. Then you can have more control over how hard you want to drive each channel.

          Hi, I agree with Joe. Put an instance of Console Shaper on each Bus directing those tracks sent to it. I tend to leave the Console Shaper as it is defualt and then I will push the levels until I get the desired effect. Cheers.
