PreSonus Studio One overview

  • 1Description

PreSonus Studio One 4 Professional offers an integrated approach to recording music, from tracking to mixing to mastering and distribution. Featuring a flow oriented, drag-and-drop interface, the software is built for intuitive use, speed, and efficiency. The software includes the fully-licensed and integrated Melodyne Essential pitch correction plug-in, Red Book CD burning, and video playback and sync.

This latest version provides some substantial updates including chord tracks, ARA 2.0 support, updated pattern and drum editors, and updates to PreSonus's virtual instruments; Impact XT, Sample One XT, and Presence XT. Chord tracks feature harmonic editing, which makes it easier to prototype a song, allowing for flexibility in transposing, key modulation, and chord substitution. Audio Random Access (ARA) was developed in conjunction with Celemony for seamless integration with Melodyne Essential. The latest ARA 2.0 gives Melodyne and 3rd party plug-in developers access to the chord track and key signature used in harmonic editing.

The drum and pattern editors update the traditional step sequencing method by placing patterns inside of tracks. No longer will you have to open a sequencer within a sequencer, as all pattern data lives inside tracks on your arrangement page, allowing for fast and effective editing with the same ease as standard MIDI and audio tracks. What's more is that there are several per-step options including velocity editing, 10 levels of repeat for stutter effects, a probability algorithm that adds variety by selectively dropping out notes, and even per-step automation for all automatable parameters.

Studio One 4 is robust enough for the most complex productions, delivering full audio and MIDI recording and editing capabilities with 41 native effects plug-ins, 5 virtual instruments, and over 30GB of bundled content. There are no limits on track count, plug-in instantiations, or editing features. Studio One Professional 4 is compatible with any ASIO, Windows Audio, or Core Audio compliant audio interface, including the entire line of PreSonus interfaces.

Note: This item is for registered users of Studio One Professional / Producer (all versions) who wish to upgrade to Studio One 4 Professional
