PreSonus Releases Its Studio One 4 DAW

Most widely known for its range of audio interfaces, PreSonus has cultivated a devoted fanbase with its Studio One DAW. Version 3, released in 2015, offered an intuitive interface that put a premium on ease-of-use and breadth of functions.

Today's release of Studio One 4 adheres to the same ideal—allowing engineers and producers the ability to use a more traditional studio-style signal chain or beat-oriented production techniques. Like earlier versions of Studio One, the new DAW comes with Celemony's Melodyne pitch and timing correction tool. But that's only one of the host of editing features that makes the program powerful.

Other features include:

  • A single-window work environment with drag-and-drop functionality and multi-touch support

  • Chord Track, which manipulates audio and note data of any or all tracks for easy chordal experimentation and song prototyping

  • Unlimited audio and instrument tracks, advanced automation features, virtual instruments, buses, and FX channels

  • Pristine sound quality with native 64-bit resolution and support for up to 384 kHz audio

  • Arranger Track with the program's innovative "Scratch Pads" that allow you to test creative ideas without altering the work you've already created

  • Easy exchange with other DAWs, including the ability to use Pro Tools, Cubase, Sonar, and Logic shortcut key commands or create your own

The Studio One 4 Professional is the fully featured flagship software, while the more budget-friendly Artist program has some truncated features. To get your Studio One 4 software now, or to learn more about the software and upgrade options for existing users, click on the listings below.
