    If only Presonus had a loyalty deal/upgrade. Not a single offer ever ends up in my account of real value to me. Yet, for 150 gitas, I was offered a full version of Samplitude X3, a full version of Soundforge, a robust version of Melodyne, and a full compliment of the iZotope mastering/repair suite, and MORE when MAGIX became aware that my SONAR DAW was no longer supported. What I heard from Presonus? An upgrade that cost more for an existing customer than a new customer. Guess which one I purchased, PreSonus? I like S1 immensely but it has became a secondary DAW to Samplitude, all by accident. If PreSonus had been more considerate, I would probably never have even opened the offer from MAGIX.

  • If you purchased via digital download, it’s likely you were e-mailed confirmation of purchase, which would qualify for the purposes of the crossgrade. Just search your e-mail inbox for mentions of your DAW and forward the e-mail to and we’ll take care of you. Cheers!

    I have no idea where my original email invoice would be from when I DL’d my current DAW three years ago. (Does anyone keep that kind of documentation around for that long?) I have no UPC code as I purchased it as a digital DL. If you really want to expand your customer base, 6Why not just offer the latest version of S1 ($199) to anyone who wants to buy it, and at the same time, take care of your current LOYAL customers with even better prices for upgrades? Make it a limited time offer, my bet is you would gain many new customers, especially since the recent news that Gibson is shutting the lights off on Sonar…

    That’s the Artist version. This post is about the Professional version.

  • Interesting cool offer..though it might be not for me 🙂

    I am a Dj.
    I tried many cheaper programs to cut my music files or to make some mixes.
    Everytime I lost high quality and dynamic.
    I have very good audiofil Octave Preamp + Hegel30 DAC + Player – Naim HDX (all ca. 30000 Euro) – so it is possible to listen the degradation of the quality.
    My question: Is the “Studio One” better ?
    Is it worth to buy it to make music mixes ?
    Regards, Mark

    No price showing for UK cross grade. Can you advise please?

  • clincoln777

    WOW! You kinda flippin your loyal customers the bird, by bypassing us without so much as a thought. I do need to upgrade but not seeing any motivation to stay with Studio One. Maybe the competition has a crossgrade offer too!

  • WhoDoneIt??

    How about already Loyal PreSonus customers with an older Version of Studio One?

  • Jason Hader

    Psyched for this. Hopefully, I have the documentation you’re looking for. I’ve got two of the crossgrade DAWs (Acid Pro 6 and Reason 9).
