PreSonus Digital Audio Workstation Software Crossgrade for Owners of Qualifying Digital Audio Workstation Software

PreSonus Studio One 5 Professional is the only DAW that lets you record, produce, compose, mix, master, publish and perform from a single intuitive interface. While Studio One Professional is loaded with world-class virtual instruments and effects that keep your imagination flowing, it's also a robust creative tool for songwriters and arrangers thanks to Chord Track and Harmonic Editing, which allow you to quickly audition new harmony and chord structures in Instrument Tracks and even Audio Tracks. The built-in Project Page handles all of your mastering needs, and you can publish directly to SoundCloud without leaving the application. When it comes time to perform and support your record, use Studio One's Show Page live on stage to leverage your studio tracks as backing tracks, play virtual instruments live, use the third-generation Ampire live to recreate your studio guitar tones and use Studio One Native Effects to process your live vocals. You can even create and rearrange your entire setlist, show after show, all from Studio One.

The original drag-and-drop interface
Studio One pioneered the drag-and-drop workflow that continues to be a guiding principle in the PreSonus software design philosophy.

Composition done right
Modern composers need tools that let them incorporate electronic elements with traditional scoring. The Score View in Studio One merges the best features of PreSonus' award-winning Notion notation software into Studio One 5. You can view multiple staves at once to work on voicing or just one track at a time. Use the score symbol palette to change dynamics, add trills, tremolos and more during playback. And you can pick your Musical Editor View per track, so you can switch among the Score View, Drum View and the conventional Piano Roll View to suit your needs on a per-track basis, or look at the same note data in different Views all at the same time, offering a rare flexibility not often found in the digital audio world.

Produce without limits
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 groundbreaking Harmonic Editing, no other program can approach the ease of arranging and songwriting that Studio One 5 Professional delivers. Inspiring virtual instruments and unique Multi Instruments let you create your own unique library of sounds. And with Aux Inputs, your hardware synths, drum machines and grooveboxes can become an easily-incorporated part of your production.

Analog mixing with digital ease
Any plug-in with an input drive now features a State Space-modeled analog input drive stage to add just the right amount of grit and warmth when you need it. Studio One Professional's unique Pipeline XT plug-in lets you use your beloved collection of boutique, vintage and classic analog signal processors as easily as software plug-ins. The Channel Editor lets you create complex effects chains using the Splitter tool that lets you run multiple plug-ins in parallel on a single channel. Mix Engine FX supports State Space models of classic analog consoles that affect your mix across channels on any bus, collectively. This isn't a stereo bus plug-in, this is multi-source processing that creates vintage-inspired artifacts like true console crosstalk, analog noise and input gain saturation.

Master mastering
Studio One Professional is the only DAW that links songs and stems with finished, mastered Projects. Transfer mixes or mixed stems to the Project page for mastering, and if you hear anything you need to change, simply jump back into the Song and make your tweaks; the revised version updates with a single click so you can continue mastering without losing any previous work. Use Studio One Native Effects and your favorite third-party plug-ins to provide the final EQ, dynamics and imaging control you need to create a professional sound. You'll also find analysis tools, like spectrum analysis, M/S-processing, K-System and EBU loudness metering, phase meter, expandable level meter and oscilloscope to provide visual confirmation of what you hear, as well as to help you confirm with existing broadcast and duplication standards. Apply processing to individual tracks or the entire collection to take your masters to the next level. And when your masterpiece is ready, you'll find DDP export, CD burning and direct upload to Soundcloud and/or PreSonus Sphere options to share your mastered recordings with your clients and collaborators or release your albums to the world.
