Studio One was designed with ease of use at its core. For ten years now, it has seamlessly combined the time-tested and proven recording studio model with today’s beat- and loop-oriented production process-so you can bring musical ideas to sonic reality more quickly than ever before.
An efficient, single-screen interface houses an unlimited number of tracks, intuitive editing tools, and advanced virtual instruments. Spend your precious time creating music instead of wondering what to click next. Studio One doesn’t dictate how you work or what you work on.
Studio One is your creative companion from start to finish. The Start Page provides what you need to kickstart your creative process-open projects, set parameters, and check for updates and tips. From there, the Song Page is all about recording, arranging, editing, and mixing your music with a complete set of virtual instruments, effects, and groundbreaking arrangement tools. Then, assemble and master your music in the Project Page. Even better, the Project and Song Pages are linked so if you need just that one little change in your master or stems, switch to the Song Page, tweak, and mix back automatically to the Project. No other program accomplishes the goal of such an effortless transition as you move from the initial creative inspiration to the finished, mastered production.
Forget laborious transposition, cutting, pasting, and moving when arranging. With Scratchpads to test out arrangements, an Arranger track that makes moving sections of songs around as easy as moving Parts, and the groundbreaking Harmonic Editing-the most flexible chord track implementation ever-no other program can approach the ease of arranging and songwriting that Studio One 4 delivers.
Far more than just a simple chord track for note data, Studio One 4’s Chord Track is a songwriter’s dream come true. Create, audition, and change chord progressions, try out chord substitutions, substitute rich chords for simple ones, even have older parts follow a new, better chord structure you came up with thanks to the inspiration Harmonic Editing can provide. This breakthrough, which works with instruments and even draft audio tracks, underscores Studio One’s commitment to streamline the songwriting and music creation process.
Studio One now features a revamped hardware audio device controller for software control of your PreSonus interface’s gain and polarity controls. And if your interface doesn’t have these controls, you get software gain and polarity control of every Input, anyhow! Combine both of these technologies to gently drive your hardware preamps without committing a super-hot signal to disk.
Furthermore, Studio One Professional’s unique Pipeline XT plug-in lets you use your beloved collection of boutique, vintage, and classic analog signal processors as easily has software plug-ins. Latency compensation is automatic, so you can easily mix and match your plug-ins and hardware. Dust off that RE-501 and get to work!
Studio One works with all the standard MIDI gear you know and love, from controllers to tone modules. But once MIDI data arrives into Studio One, it’s converted to a high-resolution, 32-bit internal format. That means no zipper noise on instruments, smoother controller changes and pitch bends, more detailed automation, and other benefits when working in the Studio One environment. And if you need to drive external MIDI gear, you’re covered there too-Studio One translates its high-resolution format back into standard MIDI data if it needs to return to the outside world.
Studio One also boasts a robust set of creative note editing tools like Randomize, Apply Scale, Mirror Notes, and more… as well as utilitarian options like Quantize and Humanize. All of these are assignable to keyboard shortcuts and included in Macros. MIDI editing has never been better.
With just a few clicks and Notion 6.4 or higher, Harmonic Editing makes it easy to create great-looking, printable lead sheets.Try Studio One Professional Demo (requires my.presonus.com account creation)
