PreSonus Studio One is a new, 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.
Two years ago, PreSonus launched Studio One with the promise that artists of all levels, from beginner to seasoned professional, would find Studio One a serious alternative to the intimidating, bloated offerings currently considered the standards. Since then, Studio One has won multiple prestigious awards, reviewers have praised it to the skies, PreSonus' Studio One forum has been buzzing with ideas, and musicians, producers, and engineers have flocked to PreSonus' amazing new DAW in large numbers.
The reasons are simple: Studio One lets them work quickly and efficiently and delivers the features they need and the impeccable audio quality they demand. When you can work faster, more creatively, and more effortlessly, making music is even more fun.
How Studio One was Born (the Inside Story)
PreSonus had a clear and simple goal: Wipe the slate clean and apply decades of collective software and hardware experience to bring the DAW back to the musician and producer. After years of development by some of the world's finest programmers, followed by two years of free updates to Studio One 1.x, PreSonus are proud to offer Studio One Artist 2, Studio One Producer 2, and Studio One Professional 2.
New-Generation Audio Engine Under the Hood
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.
Compatible and Easy to Configure
Studio One is compatible with any ASIO-, Windows Audio-, or Core Audio-compliant audio interface, including, of course, the entire line of PreSonus interfaces.
Studio One Artist
Studio One Artist delivers the entire core audio and MIDI recording and editing features, plus a wealth of 32-bit effects plug-ins and virtual instruments. Unlike other "entry-level" DAWs, it imposes no limits on track count and plug-in instantiations, or editing features.
