PreSonus Releases Studio One 3
PreSonus has released the third revision of their flagship DAW software. OBEDIA will be covering all the new features in depth, but here is a quick overview of the new features that we’ve seen. If you’d like to start learning Studio One 3, you can call us or sign up today to get started!
The new arranger track allows you to work with patterns. It allows you to to easily re-arrange your track and build it as you go.
Studio One 3 Professional offers “Scratch pads”, which allow you to keep your current arrangement intact while trying new song ideas.
A new browser
The new browser allows for faster browsing and finding of loops, effects, plugins and instruments in Studio One 3.
Extended FX Chains
Extended FX chains remind us of the Environment in Logic – allowing you to virtually chain effects together in serial, paralell, or by channel and frequency bands. All of this is done via drag and drop, making for an easy to use interface.
Studio One 3 introduces many new instruments and effects:
MAI TAI polyphonic analog modeling synth
Great for electro sounds, bass, and bright synths.
Presence XT Sampler
Presence was always a useful sampler in Studio One, but XT takes it to the next level. The plugin incorporates custom controls for sound parameters, allowing for more fine control over the sound of your sampled instruments.
Bitcrusher audio effect
You can’t beat a good bitcrusher effect, allowing you to down-sample and “crush” your sound to make dirty leads and trashed sounds.
User Interface Updates, now with touch-compatibility
Studio One 3 is now multi-touch compatible, allowing you to use it on Operating Systems that support multi-touch, such as Our PCAudioLabs pro audio computers.
New Improved Mixer
The mixer interface is cleaner, featuring a more streamlined look, and allows color-coding and resizable faders, synchronized timeline track, and mixer channel order, and track selection and focus.
Automation curves have been added to the DAW, allowing you to take finer control of automation in your arrangements.
New user-definable tool palette
The Arrow tool can now be used to quickly access editing tools in Studio One 3.
