Presonus Studio One 4 Professional is a digital audio workstation application designed for ease of use without sacrificing effectiveness. Studio One 4 seamlessly combines the time-tested recording studio model with today’s beat-oriented production process, so musicians of all genres can being their musical ideas to sonic reality—quickly and easily.

Studio One doesn’t dictate a workflow, but provides the tools and flexibility for musicians to follow their own musical path. Songwriters prototyping a song will love the new Harmonic Editing features, which allow Instrument and Audio Tracks to follow chord progressions dynamically.

For EDM and hip-hop producers, the next-generation Impact XT and Sample One XT virtual instruments are complete production environments—auto-slice, dice, sample, de-construct, and trigger synched loops with an intuitive workflow. Patterns and a new Drum Editor bring step sequencing and drum machine-style music creation into the 21st century. Studio One is also a complete mastering suite, including DDP import/export for CD duplicators and digital delivery for online streaming and publishing.

There’s a very good reason why so many musicians have switched to Studio One from older, more rigid programs. Built on a modern foundation that’s not bogged down by legacy code, Studio One provides an efficient, creative companion from initial inspiration to final master.

Its efficient, single-screen interface houses an unlimited number of tracks, intuitive editing tools, advanced virtual instruments, mastering, and video player—you spend your time creating music, not wondering what to click next. The 64-bit double-precision mix engine is state of the art, while the smooth, analog quality of the virtual instruments comes from proprietary techniques that provide much higher controller resolution. That’s why Studio One just plain sounds better.

The reason why Studio One resonates with musicians is simple: PreSonus listens. Many new features in Version 4 are the direct result of user feedback, including AAF import/export so users can bring song data from their old DAW into Studio One.

Add the most flexible arranging tools of any music program, full integration with Notion for superior notation, over 20 GB of carefully curated content, analog console emulation, advanced step sequencing, unified hardware control with the FaderPort series of hands-on controllers, and much more—it’s no wonder that Studio One continues to gain new followers every day.

    INSTRUMENTS

    With its rich roster of native plug-ins, Studio One has earned its reputation as a complete production package—and now our latest generation of virtual instruments, based on input from the Studio One community (thank you), deliver even more. Impact has been remade into Impact XT, a comprehensive beat and rhythm production environment. Sample One XT samples, slices, and dices to create great beats and realistic instrument sounds. These new instruments don’t feel like separate plug-ins but like integrated—and integral—parts of music creation.

    Presonus Impact XT

    Impact XT: Heat up the beat.

    Fully backward compatible with Impact, the XT version adds more than 20 new, highly requested features and improvements. You can even create complete arrangements in a single instance of Impact XT by launching loops that sync to your Song with real-time stretching, beat quantization, and synched start/stop.

    Fabulous Filtering - Get nasty with drive and punch controls, soft clipping, and a new 24 dB/octave zero-delay feedback filter.

    Excellent Editing - Reverse, normalize, stack, drag-and-drop, stretch, edit pads or individual samples within the pads, go crazy with the eight-octave pitch envelope range, and more.

    Timely triggers - Load loops on pads, then trigger them, quantize triggers to the beat, and stretch loops in real time to follow the tempo. All of this makes Impact XT a complete loop production station, as well as a superior drum and beats instrument.

    Play out - Impact XT offers 32 outputs—16 stereo and 16 mono—for complete processing flexibility. There are also 32 mute groups (choke groups).

    Plays well with others - Swap samples with Sample One XT and Presence XT, import and export multisample files as well as .soundx containers, optionally auto-slice files into samples on import, integrate with the new Patterns, and speed workflow with the “Send to new Impact” shortcut.

    Sample One XT: Because samplers should sample

    Sample One XT has expanded from sample playback into a sampling powerhouse. Sample, auto-slice, stretch, process, trigger, and deconstruct audio (sampled from inputs or imported from a track) for breathtaking freedom in constructing powerful new performances and beats.

    The world is your waveform – A recording page for live sampling captures audio from any hardware input, bus, output, or other instrument.

    Yes, it's really a sampler –  Crossfade and trim samples, slice samples automatically with adjustable gate, snap to zero crossings, stretch timing to match song tempo, slice and reverse waveforms, and more. Edit samples globally, or on a per-waveform basis. Trigger samples with normal, one-shot, or toggle modes… it’s all here.

    Let your samples get looped – Choose from three sample loop modes: sample sustain, release, and forward/backward (“ping-pong”) to extend sample length and playability —or to create goofy stuttering effects, if that’s your thing.

    Oh... and it's a synth, too – The new filter has the same punch, drive, and clip options as Impact XT. Apply graphic synth envelopes with adjustable attack, decay, and release curve shapes to control dynamics and filtering. Take advantage of the eight-octave pitch envelope range. There’s even a random LFO mode for sample-and-hold effects and a complete effects section with modulation, delay, reverb, gate, EQ, distortion, and panning.

    The difference between “sample playback” and “sampler” is huge, as you’ll find out when you start playing with all of Sample One XT’s new features.

    Beat the clock

    Studio One 4 isn’t just about including a world-class drum instrument but also integrating it with an innovative, streamlined Drum Editor to edit drum parts as fast as you can think. Along with hundreds of preconfigured pitch name and mapping scripts available for free from PreSonus Exchange, the new Drum Editor is like an accelerator for drum editing.

    FEATURES

    Three creative paths. One Goal

    Studio One is your creative companion from start to finish. The Start page provides what you need to kickstart your creative process—open projects, set parameters, and check for updates and tips. From there, the Song page is all about recording, arranging, editing, and mixing your music with a complete set of virtual instruments, effects, and groundbreaking arrangement tools. Then, assemble and master your music in the Project page. Even better, the Project and Song pages are linked so if you need just that one little change in your master or stems, switch to the Song page, tweak, and mix back automatically to the Project. No other program accomplishes such an effortless transition as you move from the initial creative inspiration to the finished, mastered production.

    Arranging at the speed of click

    Forget laborious transposition, cutting, pasting, and moving when arranging. With Scratch Pads to test out arrangements, an Arranger track that makes moving sections of songs around as easy as moving parts, and the groundbreaking Harmonic Editing—the most flexible chord track implementation ever—no other program can approach the ease of arranging and songwriting that Studio One 4 delivers.

    Another Studio One first: Harmonic Editing

    Far more than just a simple chord track for note data, Studio One 4’s Chord Track is a songwriter’s dream come true. Create and change chord progressions, try out chord substitutions, substitute rich chords for simple ones, even have older parts follow a new, better chord structure you came up with thanks to the inspiration Harmonic Editing can provide. This breakthrough, which works with instruments and even audio tracks, underscores Studio One’s commitment to streamline the songwriting and music creation process.

    Detect chords automatically

    When you come up with an inspired chord progression, you needn’t put your creativity on hold while you figure out what you played in order to add new parts. Built-in chord detection extracts chords from audio or instrument tracks—simply drag a part to the Chord Track to create a reference for Harmonic Editing.

    Overcome creative block

    When you’re stuck in a rut, let Studio One Professional be your creative partner. Use the ingenious Chord Selector to experiment easily with new chord patterns and ideas. Let Harmonic Editing spark new ideas. Change chords in real time from an external MIDI controller to try out chord progressions on the fly. Transfer chord data from an audio or instrument track to the Chord Track, or from the Chord Track to other tracks.

    Printable notation that's truly noteworthy

    With just a few clicks and Notion 6.4 or higher, Harmonic Editing makes it easy to create great-looking, printable lead sheets.

    MIDI - and beyond MIDI

    Studio One works with all the standard MIDI gear you know and love, from controllers to tone modules. But once MIDI data arrives into Studio One, it’s converted to a high-resolution, 32-bit internal format. That means no zipper noise on instruments, smoother controller changes and pitch bends, more detailed automation, and other benefits when working in the Studio One environment. And if you need to drive external MIDI gear, you’re covered there too—Studio One translates its high-resolution format back into standard MIDI data if it needs to return to the outside world.

    PATTERNS

    The step sequencer has served us well for over half a century; now it’s time for Studio One’s new Patterns to step into the future. Tight integration with instrument parts, automation, and Impact XT means that Patterns reinvent step sequencing as a seamless, fast, fun part of making music.

    From dumb machine to drum machine – and more - Patterns transform step sequencing from mechanical repetition into a truly expressive addition to modern sequencing. Yes, Patterns are about drums… but also melodies, integration with any instrument, step-based automation, variable sequence lengths (polyrhythms, anyone?), unlimited variations, and more.

    Extra functions. No extra complications – Impact XT’s integration with Patterns will change how you think about drum programming because the combination makes beat creation fast, fun, and effortless. There’s no need for a separate plug-in or track type to do pattern-based sequencing because Patterns work side-by-side with conventional Instrument parts on the same track. You can choose, rename, copy, and reorder an unlimited number of Pattern variations from within the Arrangement—you don’t even need to open the Pattern Editor. And, there’s a new library of inspirational drum Patterns and Variations Patterns in the Musicloops format for easy, drag-and-drop saving and export.

    MASTER MASTERING

    Studio One Professional is the only program that links songs and stems with finished, mixed Projects. Transfer mixes or mixed stems to the Project page for mastering—but if you hear anything you need to change, simply jump back into the Song, make your tweaks, and then mix the revised version back automatically into the Project page to continue mastering. Whether for Red Book-compatible CD burning, digital publishing for streaming, creating DJ sets and playlists, or professional-level DDP import/export for duplicators, the Song page/Project page partnership makes it easy to obtain consistent levels and tonal balance with collections of songs.

    PICK A FORMAT, ANY FORMAT

    Prepare your tracks for streaming with data compressed, standard, or lossless files. AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) provides song/session exchange for those who haven’t switched to Studio One (yet). Open all video and audio formats your operating system supports. Enjoy better video performance with 64-bit video engines for macOS and Windows. Create disk images. Burn Red Book CDs. Import DDP files for editing, such as fixing ID tags or ISRC code errors, then export the corrected DDP file. Whether your music’s final destination is online streaming or physical media, Studio One Professional has you covered.

    Press Quotes

    "Having now created and mixed music on Studio One, I get a sense of why it’s stealing so many users from other platforms. The workflow is so very easy that despite being a bit unfamiliar with it to start with, I was recording, editing and mixing very quickly indeed. I instantly employed the Arranger track and a Scratch Pad, I enjoyed having Melodyne available right in the track, I found the vocal processing presets a dream to use, and found plenty of usable goodies in the loop library. I went from a couple of imported vocal harmonies and piano to a reasonably finished pop track in an evening, which, for me, is nothing short of miraculous. And, although I know that DAWs don’t really sound any different from each other, it feels like it does." - Sound On Sound

    "V3 of this impressively mature DAW proves well worth the wait, with a raft of clever new features and plenty of usable soundware." - Computer Music

    "Unless you have the need for Avid's support for broadcast standards or the budget for a rack of HDX hardware, or want to have maximum compatibility with other studios and sessions, going with Studio One could well be a smart, alternative choice for a pro-level DAW." - PC Mag
