Introducing Studio One 6.5 with Dolby Atmos Integration:

Studio One's pioneering drag-and-drop workflow makes it highly intuitive and fast to use. Laborious tasks like vocal comping and drum replacement are as easy as drag and drop.

Only Studio One features harmonic editing for both audio and MIDI. Experiment with chord progressions until your next hit song comes to life -- no music theory degree required. From pop ballads to rap anthems, the Chord Track is a producer's dream come true. Quickly create beats with advanced pattern editing, flexible samplers, and live looping. Remix complete songs with the Arranger Track and Scratch Pads.

Go from the studio to the stage or stream with the Show Page. Design a complete show by creating a Setlist using songs you're already created in Studio One, incorporating a mix of live instruments, read more pre-recorded tracks, and virtual instruments.

Assemble your album and get mastering with Studio One Projects. Only Studio One Professional links Songs with mastering projects, so you can update mixes as needed without losing fades, automation, Clip Gain edits, or any other mastering work.

What's New in Studio One 6.5:

Recording and mixing designed for Immersive Audio:
Experience end-to-end workflow designed for producing in spatial audio from recording with multichannel microphones to mixing with enhanced plug-ins, and exporting files in a variety of formats. Mix in Dolby Atmos or additional formats that support up to 9.1.6 channels, then create Dolby Atmos masters directly from Studio One – both in real time and offline – and when it's time to deliver, Spatial Audio Export provides convenient batch export options for ADM and downmix formats.

Support for Dolby Atmos Binaural Headphone Monitoring:
Studio One now lets you monitor the output of the spatial audio renderer on both speakers and conventional stereo headphones simultaneously and independently. Studio One 6.5's new dedicated headphone channel allows for simultaneous Binaural monitoring, eliminating the need for switching configurations.

All plug-ins updated for Immersive Audio:
Effects and plug-ins (+2 new plug-ins) now support processing of multichannel signals or of any individual channel or pair of channels. OpenAir2 convolution reverb gets a new look and a brand-new library of true 7.1.4 impulse responses that create authentically immersive 3D spaces. The Multi-Tap Surround Delay plug-in is an eight-tap delay with individual surround panners can be synchronized to the song tempo for exciting dimensional and rhythmic effects.

Support for DAWproject file format:
DAWproject is a new open-source file exchange format designed to let users share sessions across multiple digital audio workstations. For the first time, users of DAWs from different manufacturers can exchange sessions in a format that includes all critical data. Starting with PreSonus and Bitwig, .dawproject will be provided as a universal import/export format.

ARA Plug-in Support:
ARA-enabled plug-ins are now available as audio editors on the Project Page. With the number of available ARA-enabled plug-ins steadily increasing, there are more and more reasons to reach for them at the mastering stage. ARA-plug-ins can now be utilized easily and in real time without any additional fuss.

Tablature and lead sheet enhancements:
Studio One's Scoring and Note Editing capabilities have been further optimized for tablature, lead sheets, and drum maps. These features include the addition of rhythm slashes, a chord display that's dynamically linked to the Chord Track, custom string tunings, and more expressive options for guitar tablature such as guitar bends and rhythmic display.

Studio One Remote updated for Immersive Audio mixing:
Studio One Remote for iOS, Android and Windows has been updated to include support for surround mixing, including proper visualization of the updated mixer. Additionally, a dedicated Surround Panner view has been added to support 3D panning with multitouch; a major benefit when writing pan automation in the absence of a suitable hardware remote controller.

Smart Templates -- Now with Mix in Surround:
New Smart Templates provide essential toolsets for the tasks at hand, including basic recording, mixing stems, mastering an album, and setting up for a live show. Play an instrument or produce a podcast with a single click. Use the convenient drop zone to easily import audio, video, and MIDI files. Interactive tutorials are even included with select templates.
