The workflow you want

Studio One’s fluid single-screen workflow, creative composition tools, and powerful instruments and effects make it the ideal DAW for getting ideas down and seeing them through, the way you want to.


Drag-and-drop anything

Audio loops, virtual instruments, plugin effects, and even presets can all be dragged into your session from Studio One’s innovative Browser. Drag-and-drop to copy FX Chains from one channel to another, or convert MIDI to audio or audio to MIDI. Ease of use is at the heart of Studio One, so you’ll work faster than ever before

Intelligent chord detection

Studio One detects chords in your audio or MIDI tracks and extracts them, then determines the possible chord progressions. Substitute complex chords for simple chords or vice versa. Or, have old parts follow a new chord structure.

Perform with Show Page

New in Version 5, the Show Page lets you add backing tracks, virtual instruments, and plugin effects to your live instruments with an easy-to-use Setlist feature. Sculpt your performance and change your show each night or do a quick edit on the fly when inspiration strikes.

Intuitively make beats

Impact XT is part drum machine, part polyrhythmic playground, and goes beyond any traditional rhythm sequencer setup. Its performance and composition-oriented features, like real-time loop stretching, choke groups, beat quantization, and seamless integration with Patterns, make building complex, evolving beats both easy and enthralling.

Fine-tune with Melodyne 5

Studio One Professional now includes Melodyne Essentials 5, an industry-leading pitch-correction plugin. It’s fully integrated with the DAW so you can quickly tune vocals, detect chords, and get pro-level pitch-correction without transferring audio or opening a separate plugin.

Made for making music

Score View

Enter, view, and edit notes using standard music notation, powered by PreSonus’ Notion software.

Unlimited Tracks

Studio One doesn’t limit your creativity with a track or bus limit. Use 34 tracks for kicks, just for kicks.

Plays Well with Others

Studio One uses AAF for easy file import and export. Open projects and use keyboard shortcuts from Pro Tools, Logic, and Digital Performer without a hiccup.

Extra extras

Studio One comes brimming with 50+ high-quality effects and 40+ gigs of loops, samples, one-shots, and instruments.

“When I opened up Studio One, it was extremely intuitive…I was able to recreate my entire Logic tracking template in Studio One without googling a thing.”

“It's a great DAW for musicians like me because I can effortlessly flow from initial track idea to finished master without it getting in the way of my creativity. It’s incredibly intuitive and a pure joy to use, but is still powerful enough to handle everything I can think of throwing at it.”
