The PreSonus Studio One 3 Professional v3 builds upon previous versions of this software with a new blazingly fast workflow, unparalleled sound quality and rock-solid stability.
It adds innovative songwriting and arranging tools, inspiring and unique sound-design capabilities, and a gorgeous new, high-dpi, multi-touch interface that is optimized to keep you engaged, even on extended sessions.
Studio One Professional’s new Arranger Track provides rapid and intuitive song rearranging, even with large projects. Simply drag-and-drop song sections in the Arranger track or Track Inspector, and the entire arrangement updates instantly.
Studio One 3 Professional introduces Scratch Pads to the Song page, a powerful, yet simple new workflow innovation that will change the way you create music. Scratch Pads provide the perfect way to keep your work intact while you experiment on new ideas. Scratch Pads also are ideal for creating alternate versions of songs, ushc as radio edits and remixes, and for capturing new inspirations that you wish to save for later development.
In version 3.0, getting the loops, effects, instruments, and presets you need is even faster with tag-based musical search. Speaking of loops—Studio One Professional includes nearly 10,000 audio loops, music loops, and one-shots to get your projects started and reinforce your arrangements.
Studio One 3 Professional introduces Extended FX Chains, a fast, powerful, and elegant way to add new dimensions to your sonic palette. With Extended FX Chains, you can route audio effects in serial, in parallel, by channel, or by frequency bands, all via drag-and-drop. Rediscover your plug-in collection as you transform any effect to multiband or to the most precise, narrow band. Combine different effects in new ways to explore uncharted territories.
Multi Instrument, as the name implies, lets you stack multiple synths and Instruments (as layers or key splits) on a single Instrument Track and record, edit, and play them like a single instrument. This opens a huge new range of possibilities for creative production and sound design.
To facilitate editing the multidimensional sounds that are made possible by Studio One 3 Professional, each Console Channel and Multi Instrument has a Macro Panel with eight knobs and switches that can be assigned to the most critical instrument or effect parameters. These Macro Controls in turn can be assigned to your favorite MIDI controller for hands-on fun with your sounds.
Mai Tai, Studio One’s new polyphonic analog modeling synth, gives you the ability to create monster electro and bass sounds that cleanly cut through your mix like a scalpel, inflict punishment like a jagged rusty blade, or bludgeon listeners with bass that will leave them reeling for days.
Presence XT represents the evolution of the original Presence sample-player, which has transformed into a robust, full-featured sampler. Rather than thinking of this as Presence “+ 1,” think of this more like Presence on steroids. Your old presets and song files will load, and some of the controls are the same, but that’s where the similarities end.
Start to play, and you’ll feel difference, too, because Presence XT is equipped with articulation key-switching and powerful scripting capabilities for nuanced, lifelike sounds. Thanks to a powerful scripting engine, many instruments have custom controls for unique sound parameters. Many Guitars and Basses have adjustable fret-noise; Acoustic Piano has custom controls for sustain pedal noise; all Hammond Organ presets come with drawbar controls and switchable percussion; and Strings and Brass presets feature legato scripts, to name a few examples.
Studio One's reputation for flawless sound quality started with 64-bit audio processing and now extends to its instruments and the way they play sample content. Mai Tai and Presence XT are based on this new engine and feature the same great-sounding filters, effects, and powerful modulation matrix, with more instruments on the way.
Studio One 3 adds Note FX, a new way to bring Instrument Tracks to life. Patched in a similar fashion to audio FX, Note FX process the instrument note data, rather than the audio output signal. Note FX introduced in Version 3 include: Arpeggiator, Chorder, Repeater, and Input Filter.
Studio One 3 has a fresh and modern look that invites you to reach out and touch it.
And for the first time ever in any DAW, whether you are on Mac®OS X or Windows® 8 (with a suitable multi-touch display), you can do just that to control your mix, arrangement, effects settings, and more.
Studio One 3 gives you the flexibility to customize the look to your taste or for different work environments. PreSonus also want users to enjoy Studio One no matter where you used it, from a small notebook to a 5K or Retina Mac or PC display, including multi-monitor setups. Studio One delivers thanks to its new high-dpi graphics, which takes advantage of a new Direct-2D graphics engine on Windows.
Studio One boasts scores of new features and enhancements, yet manages to be even faster and easier to use. As much thought went into what features to add as how to add them so that Studio One could stay true to our developers’ original vision of a “bloat free” music-making experience.
