Artists of all levels, from beginner to seasoned professional, will find Studio One a serious alternative to the intimidating, bloated offerings currently considered the standards. It's a groundbreaking music creation and production application for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista/7 that makes audio recording, MIDI sequencing, and audio mastering ridiculously simple right out of the box.

Studio One changes the rules of the game with fresh code, innovative drag-and-drop MIDI mapping and plug-in management, auto-configuration with PreSonus hardware, insanely good audio quality, unlimited tracks and plug-ins per track, and a powerful, inventive Start page.

And although Studio One Pro hit the scene just months ago Presonus added even more pro chops with Version 1.5. From tracking to mixing to mastering and distribution, it's the creative environment built for intuitive use, speed, and efficiency–and yet it's robust enough for the most complex productions.

  • New-Generation Audio Engine Under the Hood
    Studio One employs a unique, state-of-the-art audio engine that delivers incredibly clear, accurate sound. Studio One Pro 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 features the same audio engine but always operates in 32-bit mode.

  • Compatible and Easy to Configure
    Studio One is compatible with any ASIO-, Windows Audio-, or CoreAudio-compliant audio interface, including, of course, the entire line of PreSonus interfaces.

  • Innovative Start Page
    From the moment you connect your PreSonus hardware and launch Studio One, it's evident that this is a new and better way to record music.

  • Easy to Navigate
    One click lands you on the Song page, a single, straightforward workspace that allows you to track, edit, and mix in one easy-to-navigate window.

  • Drag-and-Drop-o-Rama
    Studio One's powerful drag-and-drop functions let you to drag an audio clip, effect, or a virtual instrument from the Browser directly onto a track in the Arrange or Console (mixer) view. Want to save an audio or MIDI clip as a file or save an effect or VI preset? Just drag it from the Arrange or Console view back to the Browser—done!

  • Cue Mix Built In
    All PreSonus FireStudio-series audio interfaces include an internal software mixer that allows you to set up cue (monitor) mixes with zero latency. Manage these cue mixes from within Studio One, rather than using the external control panels normally required.

  • Mixdown Made Easy
    The advantages of an integrated music-production system built from the ground up continue when it's time to mix. Studio One's Console is available in the Song page at all times, but it can be separated and even dragged to a second monitor.

  • Mastering (Studio One Pro)
    Several DAWs offer integrated mastering capabilities to varying degrees. Without that capability, you need a separate mastering application. But no other DAW offers a truly integrated mastering suite comparable to the Project page in Studio One Pro.

  • Picture This
    Want to do sound for picture? With Studio One Pro, you can import any QuickTime video into a Song for playback and sync, with adjustable video-playback size and time offset. Simply drag-and-drop the video from the Browser into the arrangement to import it and, optionally, extract the audio from the video and place it on a new audio track. A new Follow Edit Position helps sync to specific video frames by adjusting the playback-cursor position based on the current edit position.

  • But Wait, There's Yet Even Still More...
    It's obvious that Studio One keeps you out of a maze of nested windows and dialog boxes. And if you're an experienced engineer or producer, you can already appreciate the attention to workflow, which will help you more efficiently make a record. Here are a few more things to consider:

      Key Command Editor
    • Version 1.5 adds a new key-command editor with Search and Learn features for creating and modifying keyboard shortcuts. The search feature finds specific key commands and shows which functions they trigger and also finds specified functions and displays the key commands to which they are assigned.

      Control Link™ MIDI Mapping With "Focus"
    • Studio One integrates with hardware controllers simply and easily. The usefulness of the coolest plug-in or instrument is, after all, greatly diminished if you can't easily touch it with more than a mouse! Presonus solved this problem once and for all.

      Native Plug-Ins and More
    • Even if you don't own any plug-ins, Presonus has you covered. If you do own plug-ins, you'll want Studio One Pro, which supports the VST 2, VST 3, and AU plug-in formats, as well as ReWire.

      Unlimited Undo History
    • Even after you've saved!

  • Studio One Artist and Studio One Pro
    Studio One comes in two flavors to suit your specific needs. Presonus understands that there are different ways of making music and different levels of involvement. Some of you are cruising in home studios, capturing your creative grooves on your own time and at your own pace. Others are working in a project or commercial studio, whether on the clock for paying clients or producing your own work for sale.

  • Studio One Artist is not a dumbed-down, "lite" version of Studio One Pro. Rather, it's just one version of the same creative recording and production platform - with unlimited track count and the same intuitive interface.
