Studio One 2.0 Producer to Professional Upgrade
If you already have Studio One Producer and want to upgrade to Professional, with its 64-bit audio engine and advanced mastering and distribution features, the Studio One Producer to Professional Upgrade is for you.c In addition, you will be able to download all of the Studio One Professional bundled content from your user account. If you purchase the physical package, as well, you will receive the Studio One retail box, complete with all four DVDs of instruments, loops, and other bonus content; a printed Quick Start Guide; a Key Command Reference Card; and a Studio One sticker sheet. Remember, you must have Studio One 2 Producer installed and activated to use the Professional Upgrade Product Key!
Studio One is an 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.
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.
Here are a few highlights from the hundreds of new features and enhancements in Studio One 2.0.
Integrated Melodyne Pitch Correction (trial)
Celemony’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.
Using Melodyne in other DAWs can be very slow due to the long-winded transfer from the track to Melodyne and the fact that Melodyne knows nothing about edits in the arrangement after this transfer.
In contrast, Studio One 2 seamlessly integrates Melodyne so tightly that, for practical purposes, Melodyne is simply a part of Studio One. With one click, your audio opens in the Editor with the familiar Melodyne interface and capabilities. Hear your Melodyne edits in context with the rest of the arrangement, and when finished editing, easily render the audio in place—no track transfer or manual rendering! Furthermore, edits made in the arrangement are seamlessly synced in Melodyne. Want to go back to where you were in Melodyne? No problem: It takes one click. No other DAW can do this.
Studio One Professional includes a fully licensed copy of Melodyne Essential. Studio One Artist and Producer come with the Melodyne trial version. However, if you already own a copy of Melodyne Essential, Assistant, or Editor version 1.3 (a free upgrade from Celemony) or later, you can use it with Studio One Artist, Producer, or Professional and it will integrate perfectly, with all of the capability of your Melodyne version intact (including the Direct Note Access technology in Melodyne Editor).
Transient Detection, Editing, and Groove Extraction
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!
Multitrack Coping Done Right
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. Collapse all of your drum tracks to a single drum-track folder, and then expand it when you need to see the individual drum tracks. Group and bus your Folder Tracks with the click of a button—an exclusive Studio One feature. This can save a lot of time when working with large track counts, and it helps keep your work environment nice and clean, supporting a quick workflow.
The Track List provides a well-organized overview of all existing Tracks in the arrangement, including Folder Track hierarchy, automation envelopes, and layers. Configurations of shown and hidden Tracks can be stored as Presets, making it possible to quickly focus on any desired Tracks in an instant. Additionally, the Track List can be synced to the Mix Banks panel so that any Tracks hidden or shown in the Track List have their related Audio Channels hidden or shown in the Mix Console, and vice versa.
Enhanced Mastering with Studio One Professional
No other DAW offers a truly integrated mastering suite comparable to the Project page in Studio One Professional. .
In version 1, this integration was obvious: As you add Songs to a Project (collection of Songs), the Songs and the Project are intelligently linked so that changes to one are automatically updated in the other. Inevitably, when you are mastering a Project, you’ll need to change an arrangement or alter a mix. Studio One Professional keeps track of all these changes and automatically updates all Projects that contain the revised Song. Anyone who has re-sequenced an album for the 39th time to accommodate a tweak to a vocal outro on the 12th chorus knows how big an advantage this is!
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.
Find It Quickly!
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.
Edit Multiple Instrument Tracks Simultaneously
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.
A Great Plug-in Collection Just Got Better
Studio One’s Native Effects plug-ins have drawn rave reviews from the media. But PreSonus is never satisfied.
PreSonus’s 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 the MixVerb and Room Reverb plug-ins are first-rate, you can’t have too many good reverbs, so PreSonus added Open AIR, 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 the 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!
PreSonus Exchange is a community hub for sharing user-created content. All registered Studio One users have access and can upload to and download from the Exchange. Instrument and effects presets, FX Chains, Soundsets, and much more are easily shared, with user ratings and comments showing the way to the best content the community has to offer.
Best of all, there’s no need to leave Studio One to visit the Exchange. Open the File Browser, click on the Exchange server, and all of the content is at your fingertips, with audio preview. When you find something great, just drag-and-drop, and Exchange automatically downloads the resources and loads them into your Song.
Sound Set Builder
All of the bundled content provided by PreSonus has come in the form of Sound Sets. Now, we are giving users a free tool to create their own sound sets for distribution to all other registered users through the Exchange via an extension called Sound Set Builder. This extension is now available to all registered Studio One users for immediate download from the Exchange.
With Sound Set Builder, any folder in the file browser can be made into a Studio One Sound Set, complete with a name, description, icon, and URL. This is an excellent way to create and share packages of content, including audio loops, MIDI loops, presets, and more. Sound Set Builder installs into Studio One quickly and easily by drag-and-drop.
When you can work faster, more creatively, and more effortlessly, making music is even more fun.

Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Producer to Professional 2.0 Upgrade:
This is the first DAW that I have bought. I've used Audacity and this one, of course, beats it by far. For a fairly new DAW, I would say that it is pretty darn stable and have had very few freezes. It has autosave capabilities so you won't lose your work. It is very easy to learn how to use the DAW, it has effects, guitar and bass amp emulator, synth presets, and drum loops. If you can add vocals to all that, you can get a demo going in no time. It also has multiband compression, limiting, stereo widening, and all kinds of other things you can do. You can even record your real guitar amp and then calibrate the Ampire Guitar Emulator to sound like your own personal amp. Great EQs and a detailed manual that you should read to get all you can out of this DAW. Tech support does take some time to get to you, but they're probably sick of newbies asking newbie questions without reading the manual. I've already gotten two free updates and will get free updates for life! I LOVE this DAW.
Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Producer to Professional 2.0 Upgrade:
Well, after all the hype and trying out the LE model that came with my Presonus Studio Project I decided to try this program. I had been using Cubase 5 which is difficult to learn so I thought this program would be easier. I purchased a brand new HP with 8 gigs of RAM and a massive hard drive JUST FOR THIS PROGRAM. I optimized the computer and removed all the bells and whistles JUST LIKE THE PRESONUS WEB SITE RECOMMENDED. Well my computer started freezing up constantly. I removed the program and the computer functioned normally. Reinstalled it and guess what??? The computer starts locking up again. So... I go through and check all the drivers to make sure they're up to date. I run memtest off of the Windows web site to check the RAM sticks. No errors. I call up a friend of mine who is a computer tech and I pay him to come over and look at it. We uninstall and reinstall the program again. Hours later the computer locks up. I sent 2 letters to Presonus and that was 12 days ago. NO REPLY. I called their tech support number and was put on hold for OVER AN HOUR! I finally hung up.
Needless to say I'm sending the program back to Musiciansfriend.. Even if it's not the fault of the program Presonus Tech Support sucks. They're either dead or don't give a rats A**. I would do some serious research before purchasing this program.
