OVERVIEW

Built from the ground up for free-flowing music creation, Studio One adds more useful features.

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.

Studio One Professional
For those who want it all, we offer Studio One Professional, which has everything in Studio One Artist and Producer and adds the Project page, an integrated mastering solution; fully licensed Melodyne Essential pitch correction; SoundCloud support; Red Book CD burning; video playback and sync; and five more Native Effects plug-ins: Groove Delay, Multiband Dynamics, OpenAIR, Pipeline, and IR Maker.

Here are a few highlights from the hundreds of new features and enhancements in Studio One 2.0.

Integrated Melodyne Pitch Correction
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.

Stay Organized
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.

Track List
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
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.

      I have been using Cubase for sometime but I find Studio One easier to use. The sound quality seems much better. Studio One really hit the mark with the included mastering suite (Pro Version). By far, this is the best DAW I have ever worked with. Other than having to keep adjusting the buffer size for recording vs. mixing/mastering (to keep latency down on my slower computer), I am so satisfied with the purchase! Studio One is a awesome and fun software that takes the guess work out of a lot of DAW features.

      Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Professional:

      I've been a songwriter/musician/indie recording artist for over 20 years and go back to the old Teac/Tascam Reel to Reel tape days and have progressed to every system since through DAT and Digital Workstations and other DAWS (ProTools, Cubase, etc) and I'm very excited with Presonus and Studio One. Finally a state of the art recording and music creation platform that is taking my craft to a new level. If you are looking to get into the DAW environment and are undecided just watch some of the YouTube videos on S1 and visit the Presonus website, you will be glad you did.

        Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Professional:

        I gave up on Pro Tools 9 HD due to stability issues and eating up CPU. I'm sure PT is great if you can afford a professional setup to run it. However, I decided to make the switch and demoed several DAWs. I use Reason 7 for quick demos and really like the program for electronic style music but it is limited. I tried Studio One, Cubase 7, and Sonar as the PT replacement. They all have excellent workflow and features, but Studio One stood out to me for the clear workflow and appearing to be a company progressing rapidly in the DAW market.

        My thoughts after making the switch in July 2013 are still extremely positive. No issues running multiple virtual instruments with many effects. Never experienced a stability issue. Excellent sound quality. FaderPort has been an excellent addition as well.

        I agree with everyone in that the best DAW is the one you feel most comfortable, but PreSonus Studio One was an easy transition from PT and is just as professional for music production. My feeling is that PreSonus is the new style DAW and will be gaining users as more home studio folks attempt to experiment.

        I have enjoyed learning a new DAW and have been thoroughly impressed with Studio One. Try the PreSonus site for the trial version - definitely worth the try! Enjoy.

        Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Professional:

        My DAWs of choice were Cubase and Reason before Studio One 2. I was about finished with mixing down my first full project then found S1 Artist on Ebay for a VERY LOW price. The very first track I put together in Studio One Artist went on my album. I mixed it down in S1 Artist and it sounded better than anything I have mixed in THE FULL VERSION of Cubase 6.5. After that I was SOLD!!!.. As soon as possible I upgraded to producer and had to go back and start over. I deleted all of my vocals and recorded them over in S1. Any editing or mixing that I have done in Cubase became void. It all was bounced into S1 to do over. So far as sound quality I was BLOWN AWAY!!!!.. Upgrading to Professional made it worse with the mastering suite

        Now for the rest of it...

        "Beat creation" itself is EXTREMELY FAST.

        The Impact Drum Module is HARD HITTING when you need it to be and pretty simple to figure out on your own.

        The browser window is one of the Top 3 features of this DAW. I have seen the browser window in Sonar and this one is faster

        Sample one isn't Halion or Kontakt but for those looking for something to throw a sound in and tweak it a little maybe add a few effects then You have a qualified sampler that comes with it

        The gain that this DAW has is Ridiculous. I have had numerous tracks that have gone WELL over +6db without the slightest pop or click whatsoever

        Creating Drum patterns and sending each sample to its own channel is about as easy as boiling hot dogs because it is automatically integrated with every instrument track. You do not have to load up a certain kind of track like Cubase or spend too much time dragging digital cords to separate channels like in reason which is VERY time consuming by the way.
        The mastering Suite that comes with it can keep up with wavelab, soundforge, and just about any other mastering program you can think of... Not sure how it holds up against ozone considering that ozone is a plugin

        LASTLY..
        Since Studio One I have had to sell reason because it was taking up space and I am about to delete over 300 different tracks (finished and unfinished) in Cubase 6.5 because they are not NEARLY as fun and productive as Studio One.

        If anyone tells you that this is a point and shoot DAW with AMAZING sound quality and you don't believe them. Download the demo.. You too shall convert

        By The WAY.. The price it is against some of its competitors in the market and what all it comes with... Can't beat it... Especially with Melodyne added to the roster..... YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS

          Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Professional:

          This program blows Protools away, period. I used audio files that where recorded last year with protools to remix my friends cd. Mixing the songs with SOv2 was so much easier, and the sound I got was 10 times better after spending less than half the time mixing them. The program includes tons of great sounding fx, compressors, limiters, eq's, and more. There is a mastering section in the program, (you don't get that with Protools). You can upload your cd project directy to a cd publish company. You also get a version of Melodyne pitch correction software which works very well. I have not learned half of what this program can do in the 6 months i have had it, but the on-line tutorials have been a huge help with a few of the things I have wanted to learn. This program is good enough to be used in a professional studio if there where any pro guys willing to try it out. Download the free trial version and spend some time learning to use it. It may be the best investment you ever make for your home studio..!

          Semi-Pro. Lets be precisce.

          Goodbye Logic. I'll miss the tight hardware intergration.

          Here's what I wont miss. No single input to multiple

          tracks. Why? I dont get it.

          In S1 Artist I can record my single guitar input to

          as many tracks my cpu can handle.

          What U wind up with is a really fat textured sound.

          Plus its.....Logical. It sounds better than Apples

          Logic. I wont be able to use my apple remote to

          control S1, but I also wont be so frustrated getting

          a good sound FAST and easy. I'm getting a Studio

          Live 16 mixer ASAP. You get Pro with as well. Hook it up to your Femputer and, bingo! your outta the

          box. That rocks.

          as well.

          Comments about PreSonus Studio One 2.0 Professional:

          This is the best DAW I have used and I have used them all. Sure the others have their uses and some of them have far prettier plug-ins - If it's pretty plug-ins your after then I'd advise you to look elsewhere. If by chance you are SERIOUS about your sound, then buy StudioOne 2 and you have just scored the motherload. You will start to lead and not follow, your sound will elevate above the competition and your mixes, well, let's just say that those old demo recordings will be sounding just a bit too 'demo' to release if you get my drift! There is one downside though, you're going to want to re-do your album once you start with S1(2)Pro... But believe me, it's worth it.

          Now for the geeks out there:
          The beats you can create, tweak and manipulate in this software will blow your mind. You can line up, copy, paste, set your channel, set your compression levels, tweak, tweak again and then when you are happy with a mix, run the lot through the mastering section of the software!!! Mindblowing. The Multiband Comp is better than most 'Waves' ones. Now that PreSonus have added SoftTubes Saturation it competes with PT's 'Heat' and IMHO beats it hands down.
          Professionals of the world really need to look seriously now at this software - It's creeping up the league tables and one day it will be the number one. The sensible will get in early.

          I have used Pro Tools and this software blows everything else away.
          Well all I can say is Wow! The new version of Studio One 2 by Presonus is remarkable. Not only does it encompass the most complete array of filters and effects in the recording stage and all of the intricate tools needed in high quality mastering, but they have achieved this design with such ease of use. When you make any changes to a mix even once you have embedded it in the mastering stage, any and all of the changes are automatically adjusted while still leaving you individual parameters that you may prefer. I also have noticed that it is easy on the percentage of CPU processing consumption. Thanks to everyone at Presonus I can say I am in love with my new studio.
          This product is a great value especially with all of it's new features.
