Get the full experience and all the plug-ins and bundles extras that comes with PreSonus Studio One Pro with this upgrade for Studio Artist owners. You've got a sense of what Studio One can do, now take it to the pro level by completing the software package.

PreSonus Studio One Pro is a music creation and production application for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista that makes audio recording, MIDI sequencing, and audio mastering ridiculously simple right out of the box, yet provides a wealth of professional features.

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 that literally puts the whole project right in your hands are just a few of the compelling features that make Studio One Pro the next generation in audio software. Far from just another music production software program, Studio One changes the rules of the game, giving you a complete, easy-to-use solution from raw tracks to finished master, while supporting the latest standards and technologies.

High-End Audio Engine
PreSonus Studio One Pro is based on a cutting-edge audio engine that delivers unparalleled sound and automatically switches between 32-bit and 64-bit floating-point processing on the fly (even with a 32-bit OS), ensuring the highest quality audio at all times.

Compatible and easy to configure
The Studio One Pro software is compatible with any ASIO-, Windows Audio-, or CoreAudio-compliant audio interface, including, of course, the entire line of PreSonus interfaces. It recognizes your PreSonus interface, and preprogrammed templates automatically create software inputs and assign them to the appropriate hardware inputs on your PreSonus interface. You don't have to configure your music software to work with your hardware—PreSonus Studio One Pro does it for you.

The software stores I/O configurations with each song, for each computer, and for each device driver. As a result, you can take a song to a friend's studio, use Studio One Pro with their interface, and when you get back to your studio, it will recall the original I/O configuration for the song, as if you never left. This works regardless of interface.

Innovative Start Page
A powerful tool that will appeal to professionals and hobbyists alike, the Start page allows you to access recent songs and projects, create new ones, configure external devices, and access tutorial information, demo songs, and a special PreSonus news feed. You can download updates and support materials directly from the Start page, without ever leaving PreSonus Studio One Pro.

Easy to Navigate
Unlike most music production software programs, a single, straightforward workspace allows you to track, edit, and mix in one easy-to-navigate window that you can access with a single click. Or if you wish, you can separate the Console and Arrange views and can even drag them to separate displays. A compact Console view allows you to mix while viewing the arrangement so you don't have to bounce back and forth between windows. You also can switch to a larger Console view—yet another way that Studio One Pro helps you work quickly while giving you maximum flexibility.

The Arrange view employs a waveform display with user-selectable color-coding and sample-level zoom. The Arrange view shows you the big picture, while the Edit view shows you the up-close details; used together, they virtually eliminate the need to zoom in and out. The Console view contains faders, solos, mutes, pans, and other expected elements. It also includes extensive sidechaining capability.

PreSonus Studio One's Pro Browser provides instant access to effects, loops, instruments, and other key elements. You can preview any audio clip, and if the clip has tempo information encoded, it will play synced to the song tempo.

Powerful Drag-and-Drop Features
Here's where it gets really interesting: Studio One Pro's powerful drag-and-drop function allows you to drag an audio clip, effect, or a virtual instrument from the Browser directly onto a track in the Arrange or Console view. Time stretching enables Studio One Pro to automatically match tempo-encoded audio clips with song tempo. You can copy an effect or a whole chain of effects—including settings—by simply dragging to a new track in the Console view. These are just a few of the many ways that Studio One's Pro Browser and drag-and-drop implementation allow you to work quickly, without scrolling through pages of menus. It's a lot more fun too! No other music-production program even comes close.

Awesome Plug-Ins
Studio One Pro supports ReWire and the VST and AU plug-in formats, including the VST 3 plug-in specification, so it is ready to use the newest plug-ins as they are released. It also utilizes automatic delay compensation, which keeps tracks in sync regardless of plug-in processing. But the most glittering gems are PreSonus' proprietary Native Effects Suite plug-ins, which include a wide variety of built-in effects, such as compressors, EQs, distortion, delay effects, amp modeling, modulation effects, and reverbs. These plug-ins process audio with 64-bit floating-point double precision. This is truly state-of-the-art technology. Three new PreSonus virtual instruments are also bundled with Studio One, including SampleOne, a virtual sampler that offers the fastest sample mapping available.

Easy, Intuitive MIDI Mapping
When it comes to MIDI mapping, Studio One Pro changes the rules yet again. Of course, you can record MIDI parts and then tweak them in a piano-roll editor. But the real fun starts with Control Link, its intuitive MIDI-mapping system. Simply move the hardware and software controls to be linked and click the Link button for instant mapping. In Global mode, hardware and software controls maintain a one-to-one relationship, so a hardware control is linked directly to one software control for the entire program. In Focus mode, control maps only apply to a particular plug-in, so you can make different control maps for each plug-in, and the Focus map is stored with the plug-in, giving you no-sweat, context-sensitive MIDI mapping. This works with all parameters of any VST or AU plug-in.

Integrated Mastering Suite
The Project page is a complete mastering solution that is fully integrated with the rest of the program. The Project page includes all the necessary tools to create a production-quality master, including effects, crossfades, volume envelopes, and meters. You can make disc images, burn Red Book CDs, and create digital-release albums, complete with metadata. In addition, Studio One Pro creates an intelligent link when songs are placed in a Project for mastering, automatically updating any changes to the original tracks or subsequent mixes. From basic tracking to multiple-release mastering, Studio One Pro is a complete music production solution.

from Pennsylvania

I purchased the upgrade to studio one pro a few weeks ago. I am not a professional recording engineer but within a few minutes of loading, I was able to take some previous recorded material and create a very professional sounding album. My experience with studio one has been wonderful. I find that It is really user friendly and that there is a lot of tutorial information that can be found. My small home studio has grown and I've been able to record other Christian artists with superb results.
The upgrade allows users to create full length albums from recorded material. It has so many features that it is hard to list.
The quality is excellent. I had no issues Installing the software.
Great deal for what the user is able to do with it. I highly recommend presonus studio one.

Anythig else is better

My computer has an i7 processor, 12 megs ram,ect. I bought the presonus firestudio project 2 weeks ago and it still will not work properly. The tech support has you jump through hoops. Carefully read the presonus list of incompatable chips sets. Even with modifications 2 weeks later I am waiting on tech support with Studio one failures.

I got this Studio One Artist program with the Presonus AudioBox interface I purchased. It should be noted that the Artis version cannot master your tracks when completed, and you have to upgrade to the Studio One Pro $199.00 dollars more. While the other reviewer said it was easy to understand, you have to read what he wrote prior to that comment. He had been using cubebase, which is where he probably learned how to use software recording programs. I have a Boss BR-1200 multi-channel-recorder, and had to learn it. However, I've never used a software program, and it is not something you just know how to do. There is very little instructions if purchased with the AudioBox. My education is beyond a 4 year degree, and if there is anything I have learned. Something is only easy if you know what your doing. If you want to discuss the preadamite world or the mid-evil times, I right there with you. Never using any type of recording software or being exposed to it, you have to knwo what to do. For those who are couputer savoy with recording programs, I'm sure it is easy to understand. If your like me and never used it in your life. Then it is not something you just open up on your laptop and start recording. How it compares to other recording programs I can't say since I haven't been exposed to them. I have see enough to know that there are many sounds you can choose from.
