Work better, faster.
Studio One 4 was designed with ease of use at its core. For ten years now, it has seamlessly combined the time-tested and proven recording studio model with today’s beat- and loop-oriented production process—so you can bring musical ideas to sonic reality more quickly than ever before.
An efficient, single-screen interface houses an unlimited number of tracks, intuitive editing tools, and advanced virtual instruments. Spend your precious time creating music instead of wondering what to click next. Studio One doesn’t dictate how you work or what you work on.
Redesigned Input Channel section with gain and polarity controls.
Studio One now features a revamped hardware audio device controller for software control of your PreSonus interface’s gain and polarity controls. And if your interface doesn’t have these controls, you get software gain and polarity control of every Input, anyhow!
Advanced Group management.
We completely redesigned Grouping for 4.5. Groups can now be nested, (great for drums) named, colored, and assigned to keyboard shortcuts for enable/disable. Furthermore, groups now have attributes for defining Edit Groups or Mix Groups, including Volume, Pan, Mute/Solo, and more.
I/O Setup options, import and export.
Setting up an external audio interface has become a lot easier in Studio One 4.5. You can add any number of new inputs or outputs in a single step and re-order your I/O via drag & drop. You’re also able to import and your export I/O setups—great for mobile collaborators or users with multiple interfaces.
Streamlined Plug-in Manager.
Managing huge libraries of plug-ins and virtual instruments in Studio One 4.5 is now faster and easier than ever before. The new Plug-in Manager combines all the tools for managing large systems in one place—hiding duplicate plug-ins or removing individual plug-ins from the blacklist now only takes a few clicks.
Note editing now goes way beyond MIDI.
The Note Actions menu has been completely re-designed for fast, intuitive editing and composition, and includes new creative note editing options for Instrument tracks including Randomize, Apply Scale, Mirror, and more.
The Chord Selector now has the much-requested Chord Audition feature, ideal for users who compose by ear.
Event and Track Locks.
Individual Audio Events, Audio Parts and Instrument Parts in the Arrangement window can now be locked to prevent unintentional moving or editing. In fact, these locks are independent in the form of Time Lock and Edit Lock, respectively. A complete Lock for Tracks is available as well. No more accidental edits!
Enhanced audio and video format support.
You can now export video in various formats with your mixdown embedded. We’ve also added support for variable-bitrate MP3, AAC, and ALAC, as well as mono export.
