Make More Music
Studio One is a new, integrated approach to recording music, from tracking to mixing to mastering and distribution. It’s a creative environment built for intuitive use, speed, and efficiency–and yet it’s robust enough for the most complex productions.
Two years ago, we launched Studio One with the promise that artists of all levels, from beginner to seasoned professional, would find Studio One a serious alternative to the intimidating, bloated offerings currently considered the standards. Since then, Studio One has won multiple prestigious awards, reviewers have praised it to the skies, our Studio One forum has been buzzing with ideas, and musicians, producers, and engineers have flocked to our amazing new DAW in large numbers.
The reasons are simple: Studio One lets them work quickly and efficiently and delivers the features they need and the impeccable audio quality they demand. When you can work faster, more creatively, and more effortlessly, making music is even more fun.
How Studio One was Born (the Inside Story)
We had a clear and simple goal: Wipe the slate clean and apply decades of collective software and hardware experience to bring the DAW back to the musician and producer. After years of development by some of the world’s finest programmers, followed by two years of free updates to Studio One 1.x, we are proud to offer Studio One Artist 2, Studio One Producer 2, and Studio One Professional 2.
New-Generation Audio Engine Under the Hood
Studio One employs a state-of-the-art audio engine that delivers incredibly clear, accurate sound. Studio One Professional features a 64-bit floating-point version of this audio engine that automatically switches between 64- and 32-bit operation on the fly to accommodate 32-bit plug-ins. This means you always get the highest possible sound quality and blazing speed. Studio One Artist and Studio One Producer feature the same audio engine but it always operates in 32-bit mode.
Compatible and Easy to Configure
Studio One is compatible with any ASIO-, Windows Audio-, or Core Audio-compliant audio interface, including, of course, the entire line of PreSonus interfaces
Studio One 2.5
We are pleased to announce the release of Studio One 2.5, a major update to Studio One 2. This free (to Studio One 2 users) update adds nearly 100 enhancements and features, as well as many bug fixes. All versions of Studio One 2 have been updated, including Studio One Artist, Producer, Professional, and Free.
What`s new in 2.5
Although the update adds some entirely new features, it mostly builds on existing Studio One 2 features, completing and enhancing functionality based on PreSonus’ original vision and on user feedback.
Comping Improvements: Single-swipe comping with automatic beaming into parts makes comping much faster and more powerful.
Folder Track Editing: Edit directly on the Folder Track, with a waveform preview for all tracks in the folder. This simplifies workflow with large track counts.
Track Transform Improvements: Multitrack transform for virtual instruments. Now you can instantly turn complex multi-output virtual instruments into audio tracks and back.
More Notable Enhancements:
- Ampire XT has been completely overhauled. All-new cabinet impulse responses, matched with reworked amp models, results in a significant improvement in sound quality.
- Automation Enhancements. Easier and faster editing of automation envelopes.
- Audio Export Enhancements. Rendering multiple outputs at once results in much faster exports — a huge timesaver.
- Re-recording from buses. This is a completely new feature that enables you to use the output of virtual instrument or bus channels as the input to an audio track. In this way, you can print from buses or instruments to new audio tracks in real time.
- Drag-and-drop Event Effects. Drag-and-drop workflow is even faster with a new modifier key that lets you do things like drag-and-drop effects directly onto events in the arrangement.
- Wet/Dry Mix and Mix Lock for Effects. Built-in parallel processing on PreSonus Native Effects. For example, you can drop a compressor on a drum bus, crank the ratio, and drop the threshold to squash the drums mercilessly, and then only mix that squashed sound 20% with the original, unprocessed sound.
- Legato and Overlap Correction (MIDI). Instantly apply or remove legato from MIDI tracks quickly and simply — a huge time-saver.
