Watch the Studio One 3 Launch Webcasts

Well the news is finally out, the next standard in creative music production, Studio One 3 is now available. We launched the new version of Studio One with a series of three epic webcasts.

Version 3 is a massive release. There’s so much to say about it that each webcast is a little different.

  • Hello Rayan, I’m sorry to hear this! Please submit a support ticket at the following link and we can help you. http://support.presonus.com/tickets/new

  • Rayan Zaito

    Hello
    How can I get the usb wifi because I didn’t find it when I got the mixer

  • Blatant Audio

    I’ve been using S1 since v1 and I love it. It is my first choice for location recording, sound effects editing and masters. I just wish I could using it for final mix (re-recording / dubbing).

    I know there are various challenges with implementing AAF / OMF support, and that this would only be a requirement of the smallest part of your user base, however, do you perhaps have any other workflow / workaround suggestions for sound for picture work in a Final Cut or Premiere Pro or Media Composer workflow?

  • Hey Steph, thanks for choosing us!

    This video is for Studio One 2, but the principles here will also apply to Studio One 3. Check it out!

  • Steph

    I’m a beginner, have never used a DAW other than Audacity. I downloaded the free version to introduce myself to Studio One 3. So, I opened the DAW and found that it is very confusing. I don’t know how to start. I couldn’t find a quick reference, “how to” guide. Please help me to get started.

  • Terribly sorry for your loss—that’s awful. 🙁

    If your copy of Studio One 2 Artist was registered to your my.presonus.com account, you should be good to go for an upgrade.

  • But the software studio one 3 professional 399.99 and the upgrade is 349.99 from studio one 2 artist. I guess I have to save up to get it then, I hate my studio equipment got burned and smoked up and water down from my house burning down, I guess I have to start over…thanks got to do what I got to do.

  • Upgrade! You’ll save money and end up with the exact same thing. 🙂

  • Well Studio One 3 Pro is way better, smarter, and more advance, way more new features, and no its not just for electronic music, its for all types of music. The developers at presonus listen to it customers, in what they want in a DAW, and they give the people, producers, engineers, or beat makers what they want in a DAW. So I have to disagree on that There is no difference in Studio One 2 Professional and Studio One 3 Professional…..there are big different.

  • I bet you do, Studio One 3 Professional is the best DAW in the world, I always loved Pro tools and Logic Pro, but after looking at Studio One there is no comparison to it.

  • Man get studio One 3 Professional It has everything you need to create some great sound music, Plus it allows you to mix and master your music yourself. Plus with Exchange tab allows you to download other people presets of effects, loops, or one-shot samples, or other presets of third party VSTi,VST,AU,RTAS plugins. Studio One is the best DAW on the planet and on the market. You will never regret one moment of it.

  • I have question which would be better for me, to buy Studio One 3 Professional or upgrade to Studio One 3 Professional from Studio One 2 Artist? I want it so bad there I am will to put it on Layaway to get it right now. Help me please.

  • I am Presonus and Studio One biggest fan, I love there products, and their software Studio One 3 Professional, I want to upgrade or buy the newer version of Studio One 3 Professional…..i must get this software, I love it so much I watch youtube tutorial all day about it.

  • Thank you! We appreciate your support on Twitter all the same.

  • AndrevanHaren

    I just realized that these webcasts are not live anymore, so there was no free copy give away anymore. I was tweeting their links for nothing 🙂 I must say that what me impresses the most on SO is the community around it, it just wants me to make music and share it. Being a more traditional composer I don’t share projects made in Logic X that much but SO inspires me to do that much more.

  • Charles M. Leake

    Thanks. This a very acceptable answer.

  • We discontinued Producer because we decided to make two of its main features available as add-ons for Studio One Artist: VST compatibility and MP3 Import/Export.

    This allows new users to Studio One start with Studio One Artist and then only add the features they need instead of paying for features they won’t necessarily use.

    Users who registered Studio One 2 between April 1, 2015 and May 20, 2015 received a free bump up to Studio One 3. All your partner has to do is log out of their my.presonus.com account and log back in, and if they registered during this time they will find Studio One 3 available for download in their account!

    Regarding Studio One Prime: it’s not a replacement for Studio One Producer, it’s the replacement for Studio One Free, and it will be released later this month.

    I hope this helps!

    My partner brought Studio One II Producer just a month or so ago, at the time it was suppose to be the next to the highest version that he could by, and he paid a good amount, i think $199.00, now Presonus Studio One 3, is releases and Producer in no longer available. in addition, he was told that it was now referred to as the starter version PRIME ( the free version) in Studio One! Then we see that there is now only ARTIST $99 and Professional $399. So where does that leave him for the money he spent? There should be an courtesy upgrade to SO3 offered to him, at no charge, since no one told us that Producer was being phased out within weeks of his purchase! I would have never suggested him to purchase Producer version, if I knew that the SO3 release was so near. I would have told him to wait.

    I am not very happy about how this circumstance came to be. I hope that someone will contact me to try to make this right, or attempt to explain the thought process behind this situation. We feel the the presonus DAW is fantastic, Let see if their business ethics are comparable.

  • No, EUCON is not officially supported.

  • Hey there: Try changing the timebase (beats vs time) to time for the marker track.
    This will cause the markers to be locked to time and not beats/bars.

    Create your markers for the visual time, and adjust your tempo between the markers for syncing tempo.

  • As a singer/songwriter, I can see how you might find some serious value in the Arranger Track and Scratch Pads. Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZALHeAeOjM4

  • Glad to hear it! Thank you for sticking with us!

  • Awesome. Thank you so much Amber!

  • Yes! Not only can you edit the GUI colors to your liking, but there’s a preset waiting in there for you called “V2 Grey.”

    Find it in Studio One Preferences >> General >> Appearance.

    I’ve searched for this with no success: what programming language and/or toolkit does Presonus use to write Studio One?

  • Joe Shmoe

    Although I am a software developer and musician I had never used a DAW before. But when my son’s high school theater director asked me if I could create three karaoke versions of some popular songs from the 1980s for their school musical I naively agree to do it.

    Starting from scratch, then, with no prior DAW experience and no knowledge of Studio One, I was able to use the on board instruments and produce a CD with instrumental versions of three whole songs that were close enough to the originals to make for a good show, in about 16 hours total.

    SO3 looks pretty great. I’m a PT10/11 HD user and have been thinking about switching to Logic, Cubase Pro 8 or possibly SO3.

    However, what about automation modes. I’m use to mixing in Pro Tools or System 5, ICON, ect. Can you just grab a fader, pan, send whatever and it will write and playback your moves? What about trim and Coalecse trim?

    I’ve been told there is no AAF or OMF export. How do I exchange projects with someone on Nuendo/Cubase, Pro Tools or Logic?

    studio one v3 …. love it …

  • Hans P. Heilmann

    Studio One 3 is clearly much better than version 2 by the warmer, clearer sound and “noise free” with darker / more silent background as if the recorded music has already been finalized and the details are much clearer. The Studio One 2 has a very very good sound, but Studio One 3 is just in a different, higher league.
    It works also much faster !
    Good work. :o)

  • Doing some late night work, I ended up taking a break. Went on my social site and saw a note about Studio One. I didn’t really take a glance at it and sorta shrugged it off. The next day I saw it again and I decided to read about it and it got me intrigued. Saw the interface and looked simple and familiar.

    I saw a demo of it so I figured why not. Got nothing to lose. So once I got this going, I was impressed with the templates and interface. I would say it took my around 30 to 40 minutes without reading the manual to play around with vst, midi and audio. The drag and drop features really wowed me. As it took so less time do what I would do on my other daws that I almost felt like I was cheating.

    Now for mixing and mastering, I usually have someone do that for me. I usually tend to find these tasks tedious but I played around with the mastering and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not to mention that the mastering section is very good. With the ease of of plugins, the layering and chaining of FX, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. I feel too spoiled and really enjoyed playing around with Studio One. All in all, I am going to be purchasing it. Studio One seems to be one of those guilty pleasures in life. Once in while you gotta buy that piece of luxury chocolate.

  • I Love you Studio One

  • Royal Jermayne

    AHAHAHAHA I got the right answer to the wrong question…lessoned learned..Touche oh ye wise presonus bandit…..oh touche…. 🙂

  • Yes! Studio One Prime will be available soon, and it’s free to everyone. 🙂

  • Royal Jermayne

    Can i have a free copy? (all you can do is tell me no…lol)

  • As an Acoustic Singer songwriter, just recording acoustic guitar, vocals, an occasional bongo bass and keys, all live, I do not see the advantage moving from the latest in version 2. Am I missing something? I can see great advantages if I played, and recorded electronic music. But for the acoustic singer songwriter, I am at a loss in understanding the justification to spend the bucks. from Pro 2.

  • Good thing you can get it today!

  • Jim Hoffman

    Oh.. The webcast has me wanting this software yesterday!
