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.

    New In Version 2
    elemony's Melodyne is the most sought-after pitch-correction solution in the market, and it has been the model for proprietary solutions in several DAWs. Studio One 2 seamlessly integrates Melodyne so tightly that, for practical purposes, Melodyne is simply a part of Studio One.

    Sure, you can do transient detection and editing in other DAWs—but it's slow, and you often have to make a lot of decisions along the way. In Studio One, you can quantize multitrack drums in two steps: group the tracks, then quantize.

    Studio One does the analysis and phase-coherent quantization for you—with great-sounding results! Want to quantize audio to other existing audio? Drag-and-drop audio into the Groove panel, then quantize. Groove extraction is as simple as drag-and-drop; extract a groove from any audio and apply it to any other audio in seconds!

    Single and multitrack comping are quick and easy in Studio One—and faster than with most DAWs!

    No tool-switching is needed, and crossfading between takes is automated, although you can edit the fades. Auditioning takes is as simple as holding Alt and clicking on a take—no more manually soloing entire lanes, as in other DAWs.

    Keeping everything organized can be critical to an efficient workflow, which is a breeze with the new Folder Tracks and Track List.

    No other DAW offers a truly integrated mastering suite comparable to the Project page in Studio One Professional. ⇓ Learn more

    Mastering an album is much more than sequencing and level-matching. Studio One Professional provides all of the necessary tools for professional production, including a phase meter and spectrum and peak/RMS level meters with K-System options. To all of this, Studio One Professional 2 adds DDP Export, PQ editing, higher-quality sample-rate conversion, and other professional features.

    Studio One's Browser offers quick access to instruments, effects, sounds, files, and more. In version 2, you can search within any location in the Browser, making it even faster and easier to find the resources you want.

    Typing text into the search field will immediately begin the search, and only results matching the search text will be displayed. Then the found content can be used directly. Choose Show in Context or Show in Explorer/Finder to quickly access other content that's stored in the same location. Now it's easier than ever to find what you want and drag-and-drop it where you want it quickly, while your creativity is still flowing.

    Studio One's editing features for musical-performance data have significantly increased in version 2.

    Now you can view and edit more than one instrument track at a time in the Music Editor, select multiple parts on different color-coded Tracks in the Arrangement and edit them together.

    Studio One's Native Effects plug-ins have drawn rave reviews from the media. But we're never satisfied.

    Our popular Ampire guitar-amp modeler is now Ampire XT and features new amp models, a new convolution-based cabinet-modeling section with some of the most revered cabinets ever, and a full-featured effects section.

    And although our MixVerb and Room Reverb plug-ins are first-rate, you can't have too many good reverbs, so we added OpenAIR, a highly efficient convolution reverb, to Studio One Professional's plug-in library. OpenAIR delivers ultra-realistic reverberation based on impulses captured from both real spaces and classic hardware reverbs. To top it off, with our new IR Maker utility plug-in, you can capture your own impulse responses for use with OpenAIR and with the cabinet section of Ampire XT. With these tools, you can put your music in almost any conceivable space!

    Track Transform and Event-Based Effects

    Studio One now features an innovative Track Transform feature, as well as event-based effects.

    Audio and instrument tracks feature the new Transform feature, which you can think of as a very flexible alternative to "freezing." An entire audio track can be rendered in place with one click, removing any inserted effects plug-ins and conserving CPU power while still allowing normal editing. One click restores the original audio events and any inserted effects.

    One click can also transform an instrument track into an audio track, and the audio can then be edited normally. (Notes are displayed as a clear indication that the audio has been transformed from an instrument.) This conserves a lot of CPU power with today's advanced virtual instruments, and it opens many creative possibilities that were too bothersome to attempt before now. And, as you might guess, one click brings the instrument track right back.

    Furthermore, every audio event in the arrangement has its own insert device rack, where any number of effects can be inserted, just like the insert device rack found on all mixer channels. When the desired sound is achieved, these effects can be rendered with a single click, removing the effects plug-in and conserving CPU power. And of course, one click can restore the effects for further editing at any time.

    SoundCloud is Integrated Into the Browser!

    Studio One version 1 brought the world's first DAW integration of SoundCloud. With this feature, you could upload your music to SoundCloud directly from within Studio One. Studio One 2 brings another first: SoundCloud is now integrated directly into the Browser.

    View tracks from people you follow, your own tracks, and more. Stream a preview: Preview SoundCloud content as if it were audio on your local computer. If the track is downloadable from SoundCloud, just drag-and-drop it into your arrangement to immediately download and import it. Anyone collaborating or remixing via SoundCloud will love this!
