PreSonus Digital Audio Workstation Software Upgrade for Owners of Previous Versions of PreSonus Studio One Artist

PreSonus Studio One 5 Artist is designed to supercharge your creativity, and its single window, intuitive interface and drag-and-drop workflow make recording and producing easy. Studio One Artist is loaded with world-class virtual instruments that keep your imagination flowing – Impact XT for drums and percussion, Mai Tai, Mojito and Presence XT for deep synth and instrument sample playback and the third-generation Ampire – featuring a stunningly accurate, State-Space modeled guitar amp that can be expanded when you're ready for more vintage amp flavor. Unlimited tracks, effects and buses mean you can create and mix however you want, without boundaries. And when your EP or podcast is done, you can publish directly to SoundCloud without leaving Studio One.
