Studio One 2 Review

With Presonus releasing the latest version of Studio One, there are plenty of people asking why they should even consider the competition. While being familiar with the industries standard DAW’s, which in my opinion can be intimidating and confusing, this Studio One 2.5 review puts the everyday person in control to make their own informed decision.

  • Background

Presonus was primarily in the interface business before introducing the code base that was courtesy of the Cubase brainiacs. This was a great way to expose the software to the uncharted market that Presonus had to offer with the purchase of any interface.

It began as a frill free and easy to learn platform with an extra bonus of the project page which is the bread and butter of Studio One 2.5 Professional. The song page is where the multitrack recording and editing is handled and the project page is where an album is mastered and begins to take shape.

Simply drag the songs you want on the album into the timeline and position them into the desired order. If a change is made to a song on the song page (mix for example), these changes update the project page automatically. This is the only DAW with this unique feature.

  • Have And Have Nots

Presonus from the beginning wanted to keep everything focused and knew they could not be everything to everybody. So some things were not available in the first releases that have been added with subsequent version releases, like track folders.

They have focused on those who merely want to record, edit and distribute their own tracks. There is no notation or MIDI plugins in this DAW, however, MIDI controllers are a wiz to use thanks to the new feature Control Link which greatly simplifies connection.

Another neat feature is how REX files can be imported as audio loops, which get crossfades on the slices and FLAC converted. That is a very handy feature that was meant to benefit a large amount of end users out there.

  • Accommodating Customer Wants

What users want users get with Presonus and it shows with the expanding capabilities of Presonus Studio One 2.5. You have folder tracks where you can store your automation envelopes for example, composite recording and what Presonus calls Audio Bend.

Audio Bend is basically transient detection that can be used for editing and quantizing audio. Its cool because this feature allows for Groove templates to be introduced to audio and MIDI tracks. Melodyne with the listen tool is added for stretching and pitch bending. Just hover over any individual part you want to hear and click. It will audition that sound only. Thanks Presonus.

When you export an instrument-based Music Loop everything follows it including, presets, effects, channel routing with bus assignments and FLAC audio. You can edit multiple tracks of MIDI also and convert MIDI tracks to audio easily with the Transform option.

  • In Closing

For collaborating, mastering, and laptop efficiency Studio One 2 Professional seems like the logical decision (no pun intended). If you only use one DAW program maybe you should learn another and SO is very easy to pick up and start working right away, which only adds to your arsenal. I suggest you get some hands on with Studio One Professional to get a good overview of its capabilities.

Heres a list of goodies included:

  • Transient Detection

  • Music Loop format

  • Multitrack editing for MIDI

  • Melodyne Pitch Correction

  • Exports DDP files for professional duplication

  • All in one recording/mastering and assembly/distribution

  • Folder Tracks/Composite Recording
