PreSonus Studio One 4 – major update

Posted on: Tuesday 29th of May 2018

studio_one-new03_1_The DAW favoured by Pro Tools-refugees has received a major update. Studio One v4 Professional’s new Harmonic Editing features enable experimentation with harmonies, transpositions, and chord progressions. The Chord Track goes beyond a simple chord track for note data, working with instrument tracks and audio tracks for “fast, multi-dimensional arranging and transposition”. A Chord Selector makes it easy to experiment with new chord patterns and ideas. Built-in chord detection extracts chords from audio or instrument tracks.

The step sequencer has been updated: Studio One Patterns, found in all editions of Studio One 4, integrate with Instrument Parts and automation, offering many more expressive possibilities than typical step sequencers. Patterns can live side-by-side with conventional Instrument Parts on the same track. Studio One 4’s Musical Editor adds deeper editing features, speeds up the editing workflow, and simplifies recurring tasks. A streamlined Drum Editor enables enhanced control over note events. Note event editing options also have been updated and extended. The powerful Macro system now offers added flexibility.

New in Studio One Artist and Studio One Professional, Impact XT adds more than 20 new features, transforming the Impact drum module into a complete production environment for beats and loops. Sample One XT has expanded from sample playback into “a sampling powerhouse” and features a wealth of synthesis options. In addition, you can drag-and-drop samples between Sample One XT and Impact XT and exchange samples with instruments like Presence XT using a common exchange file format.

PreSonus worked with Celemony on the original Audio Random Access (ARA) spec that allows for seamless integration with Melodyne. Studio One 4 is ready for ARA 2.0, which provides access to data from multiple tracks. Version 4 also eases the process of switching from other DAWs to Studio One by supporting AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) for data exchange with Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Final Cut Pro and Premiere.

Street prices are: Studio One 4 Professional $399.95; Studio One 4 Artist $99.95. Upgrades and crossgrades are also available.
