PreSonus Blog

We recently released an update to Notion 5.1! This update is free to all existing Notion 5 owners.

One of the coolest new features in Notion 5.1 is the ability to export stems from Notion for further editing in Studio One. From Notion’s Export menu, you will want to choose “PreSonus Capture Session” before specifying the export location.

Double-click the exported Capture file (or drag it to Studio One) and a new Studio One song will be created. All of your audio files will be brought in retaining instrument names, panning, and gain settings. Furthermore, the new song will import your tempo, time signature, and rehearsal mark information.

This is a great opportunity for both Studio One users who are new to Notion or vice versa. If you’re a composer who is interested in breaking out of the traditional mold to explore creative audio production, or a Studio One veteran who would like to dabble in the classical realm—this integrated workflow will allow you to expand your horizons in either direction.

That’s not all there is to Notion 5.1, either. You can click here for the full list of changes.

Adrianne Gonzalez (AKA AG) is a highly accomplished musician, songwriter and producer who lives in Los Angeles. She has recently tried out Studio One, and after a short time with it she has officially made the jump from Pro Tools—and doesn’t seem to be looking back. She put together this great video on why she decided to stick with Studio One, and I think the world is better for it. Thanks AG, this is much appreciated!

Abraham Martinez

La Carta Perfecta – En Vivo was a big record for Danilo Montero in 2014—so big, in fact, that it won a Latin Grammy for Best Christian Album. The live album was mixed by Abraham Martinez, pictured above, in Studio One Professional 2.

Martinez is a full time FOH audio engineer for Marcos Witt, a well known worship leader and music artist in Latin America. When not working with Witt, Martinez spends his spare time rackin’ up Latin Grammys. He’s collected three in only four years:

  • 2011 Best Christian Album (Spanish Language) Lenguaje De Amor Alex Campos [CanZion / MV Records]
  • 2012 Best Christian Album (Spanish Language) 25 Concierto Conmemorativo Marcos Witt
  • 2014 Best Christian Album (Spanish Language) La Carta Perfecta – En Vivo

We had the chance for an e-mail exchange with Abraham to get some additional details. While Abraham has been using Studio One—and other PreSonus gear—for a couple of years now, this is his first Latin Grammy award for a project mixed in Studio One. Abraham came into the Studio One fold the same way many users do—via PreSonus hardware.

“Back when I recorded more, I used an an M80 preamp and ACP88,” says Martinez. “More recently I’ve used an ADL 600 for tracking vocals and bass. I also use a StudioLive mixer for its audio quality and ease of use for work on our church campus. I have always associated PreSonus with value, but had never considered them a serious DAW developer until I tried Studio One!

“Now I use Studio One for exclusively for all of my mixes in my personal mixing studio, AMmix,” Martinez continues. “We also use it at our church to to record and mix our plays. The main thing that drew me toward Studio One was it’s incredibly intuitive workflow. It felt natural immediately, especially for mixing. I remember having to go back to my old DAW to finish an older project and hating it as it felt primitive in comparison. What kept me working in Studio One however, was its audio quality and professional features. That is something I just wasn’t willing to give up.

“Studio One doesn’t disappoint,” Martinez asserts. “The drum editing and quantization features are the best by far. I love that there are never problems with clicks and pops and everything stays perfectly in phase. Audio quality and ease of use are Studio One’s strengths.

Martinez speaks from experience when comparing Studio One to other DAWs and workflows.

“I found my workflow to be much faster and fluid in Studio One, as apposed to Nuendo, which I worked on before for many years. I recently did a comparison of working completely ‘in the box’ with Studio One against my hybrid hardware/software setup—and I can honestly say that the differences were minimal. I now feel completely comfortable working completely in the box when I have to!”

“I can’t wait to see what Studio One has in store for us in version 3,” he muses.

Sweetheart_300x300_Flyer_2-5-15

It’s been said—and sung—that money can’t buy love. Centuries of research put into disproving the theory have yet to make a strong case. But something nobody talks—or sings—about is the fact that the inverse is totally true: fact is love can save you money. 

And it’s in that spirit of fiscal tenderness that… oh, geez. Look, I don’t know how to put this, and I’ve wanted to tell you for a long time—ever since that first install—but I like you. I mean I really like you, and what with Valentine’s day right around the corner and everything… I just think we were kinda meant to be together. I hope you feel the same way.

Just so you know I’m serious, here’s 40% off of my software—that includes Studio One Producer, Studio One Professional, and Notion. Also, know that my earlier offer for Studio One Artist and Progression 3 at $20.15 still stands.

I hope you don’t think I’m crazy, but I just couldn’t keep these feelings locked inside any longer. Thanks for hearing me. You don’t need to answer right now—but I’ll need to know by midnight on February 16, 2015.

I love you, <CUSTOMER_FIRSTNAME,&CUSTOMER_LASTNAME>.
