This special PreSonus crossgrade allows registered owners of any full-featured DAW software to purchase Studio One Pro at a significant discount.
PreSonus Studio One Pro Software music creation and production software—for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista—makes audio recording, MIDI sequencing, and audio mastering ridiculously simple right out of the box. Yet Studio One Pro is loaded with a wealth of professional features.
Studio One Pro is part of the next generation in audio software, and here are a few of the reasons why: 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 recording project right in your hands.
Far from just another music production software program, PreSonus Studio One Pro changes the rules of the game. You get a complete DAW application, easy-to-use from raw audio tracks to finished master, with support for the latest standards and technologies.
High-End Audio Engine
Studio One Pro is based on a cutting-edge audio engine that delivers exceptional 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 Studio One Pro.
Easy to Navigate
Unlike most music production 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 Pro's 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
Studio One Pro DAW'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. With time stretching, Studio One Pro automatically matches tempo-encoded audio clips with song tempo.
You can copy an effect or a whole chain of effects with Presonus Studio One Pro—including settings—by simply dragging to a new track in the Console view. These are just a few of the many ways that Studio Ones Pro's Browser and drag-and-drop implementation allow you to work quickly, without scrolling through pages of menus.
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 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
With Studio One Pro, you can record MIDI parts and then tweak them in a piano-roll editor. Control Link, its intuitive MIDI-mapping system lets you 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 offers complete mastering tools that are fully integrated with the rest of the program. All the necessary audio mastering tools are available from the Project page. You get 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, PreSonus 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, PreSonus Studio One Pro Software is a complete music production solution.
