PreSonus

PreSonus - Studio One 4.6 Professional

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.

Chord Audition
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.

Streamline music creation with Harmonic Editing

This Studio One breakthrough redefines arranging. Based on a Chord Track that alters audio as well as note data, it has never been easier to prototype songs, try out new ideas, and smash creative blocks. What would it sound like if you substituted a more harmonically rich chord for an existing one?

Or have older parts to follow a new, better chord progression you just came up with thanks to inspiration from harmonic editing? Now it’s easy to find out… and much more.

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.

Impact XT: The complete production environment

Impact was a useful, flexible drum module—but Impact XT, which adds over 20 new and highly requested features, transforms Impact into a complete production environment for beats and loops. Load Parts into pads, then launch with beat quantization and real-time stretching.

Don’t waste time mapping notes to drums: Impact XT auto-populates Studio One 4’s new Patterns with instruments for instant beat creation. Stack samples on pads, auto-slice samples on import, reverse sample playback, load up to eight banks, color-code parts, edit pads or the samples themselves—that’s just a fraction of what Impact XT now brings to your music. And, it’s fully backward-compatible with the original Impact.

Sample One XT goes (way) beyond sample playback

Sample One XT has expanded from sample playback into a sampling powerhouse. Sample, auto-slice, stretch, process, trigger, and deconstruct audio (sampled from inputs, buses, outputs, instruments, or tracks, as well as import/export) for breathtaking freedom in constructing powerful new performances and beats.

Sample One XT includes all the features you expect from a true sampler and also expands the synthesis-type options that can modify those samples. Sample One XT isn’t just a way to sample and play back sounds; it's also a way to warp and deconstruct them into entirely new creative realms.

Accelerated drum editing.

To go along with a world-class drum instrument, there’s an innovative, streamlined Drum Editor to edit drum parts as fast as you can think. Add that to the hundreds of pre-configured pitch name and mapping scripts available for free from PreSonus Exchange, and the new Drum Editor is like an accelerator for drum editing.

Patterns bring step sequencing into the 21st century.

The step sequencer has served us well for over half a century, but it’s time to reinvent step sequencing as a seamless, fast, fun part of making music. Patterns offer tight integration with instrument parts, automation, and Impact XT, along with variable sequence lengths and the ability to do melodies as well as drums. Patterns can even live side-by-side with conventional instrument parts on the same track—no need for separate tracks or plug-ins.

Switch with ease.

We get it... a lot of you are switching from other programs to Studio One. To make the process easier, Studio One 4 now supports AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) for data exchange with Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Final Cut Pro, Premiere, and more.

Ready for ARA 2.0.

PreSonus worked with Celemony on the original Audio Random Access (ARA) spec that allows for seamless integration with Melodyne. ARA 2.0 is coming and is already available to third-party plug-in developers so they can access the Chord Track and Key Signature data used in Harmonic Editing. (Expect a free Melodyne update with Chord Track support this summer.) ARA 2.0 can even access data from multiple tracks at once, so once again, Studio One leads the industry in implementing technology that serves the program’s musicality.
