  • loop activated in “Viola Section”: Arpeggio minor/major
  • layer gain in “Big String Section – Staccato”

Since no automatic version check or update process for content is in place, existing PSO customers need to update the two affected Sound Sets manually. Here’s how:
From Studio One:

  • Uninstall PSO Contemporary Strings.soundset and PSO Classic Orchestra.soundset via the Studio One Browser:
    • Go to the browser file tab
    • Open the Sound Sets folder in the root
    • Locate the Sound Sets mentioned above
    • Right-click on the Sound Sets and select “Uninstall”
  • Install the new versions:
    • In the application menu, select “Studio One Installation…”
    • In “My Purchased Items” select the two new Sound Sets of the same name
    • Click “Install”

Via web browser:

  • Go to my.presonus.com and log into your MyPresonus account
  • Go to My Products > Add-Ons
  • Locate PreSonus Symphonic Orchestra and click “View more details”
  • Download the two new Sound Sets (PSO Contemporary Strings and PSO Classic Orchestra)
  • When download is complete, drag the new Sound Sets into the Studio One application window while running
IMPORTANT: updating the Sound Sets doesn’t update presets used in existing songs. If desired, these need to be reloaded within Presence XT in order for the changes to be applied.

    Excellent reviews. Thank you. BTW – your link for JBL LSR305 Studio Monitor Under 200 is broken.
