Simplified audio production workflow From the moment you open Studio One 5 Artist, you’re ready to get to work. The Start Page greets you with everything you need to get rolling. That’s where you’ll find all your songs as well as all the personalized information and settings you’ll use from project to project. From there, you go to the Song Page. The Song Page gives you instant, drag-and-drop access to the tools you need to record, edit, produce, and mix your tracks. There’s a complete suite of virtual instruments and plug-in processors waiting for you, and accessing everything from audio loops to entire preset channels is just a swipe of a mouse away. By the time you know it, you’ll have recorded your tracks with your favorite audio interface, processed and edited them to perfection, and mixed it all into a polished piece.
Under-the-hood optimization for performance One of the things that PreSonus has always understood is that not everyone lives at the top of the market. In many cases, stepping up to the latest version of a DAW means either upgrading your computer or limping along with an underpowered system that simply doesn’t perform as you’d have anticipated. One of the reasons Sweetwater is so quick to recommend Studio One is that PreSonus puts a ton of work into keeping the code light and efficient. That means you don’t need to have the latest machine (or even second-to-latest machine) to get everything you need out of Studio One 5 Artist.
What’s new in Studio One 5 Both Studio One 5 Artist and Studio One 5 Professional include a number of excellent updates that keep this DAW at the top of its class. For starters, there’s the redesigned Native Effects plug-in suite. This bundle of PreSonus’s staple effects and processing plug-ins features a refreshed look and compelling upgrades, most notably State Space Modeled drive stages for the Analog Delay, Rotor, and Tricomp plug-ins. Instead of relying on compressor/limiter plug-ins, you can now use Clip Gain Envelopes to correct volumes on a clip-by-clip basis. Aux Channels let you patch in external sources (returns), without the need for an audio track. Finally, Key Switches and Note Controllers support opens up more advanced MIDI performance and programming possibilities.
New to Studio One 5 Artist Historically, Studio One Artist has been somewhat limited in its capacity beyond its own processing capability. In version five, PreSonus decided to up the ante with some essential expansion options. Now you can use third-party software with your Studio One 5 Artist setup, including VST and AU plug-ins, as well as apps that send audio and MIDI via ReWire. But the addition to Studio One 5 Artist engineers here at Sweetwater appreciate the most is PreSonus’s Studio One Remote app support. This app lets you control your DAW when you aren’t at your desk — something that’s super-handy when you’re recording vocals or parked in front of your amp. Finally, now that it’s upgraded for 64-bit floating-point WAV encoding, Studio One 5 Artist lets you get the most out of your modern audio interface and OS.
