21st Century DAW
Studio One® is the DAW for the 21st century. The software connects directly to the Web so you can share what you've created, sell your finished works, and download what others have done—all from within the program. An RSS feed delivers Studio One-related news and information and alerts you when a new version is available and gives you a link to a download page.
From you to the world (and back).
PreSonus Exchange brings your work to others and theirs to you: swap presets, Soundsets, grooves, macros, and more. You can also download new Studio One Extensions, factory presets, and international language packs. It’s easy: Download from Exchange simply by dragging from the Exchange folder in the Browser into your Song or Project.
Studio One also lets you share your music on SoundCloud™, the site where musicians go to hear what other musicians are doing. Downloading is similar to Exchange: Drag from the SoundCloud folder in the Browser into your Song or Project. To upload (in Studio One Professional), check a box in the export dialog. That's right, upload directly from Studio One by checking one box. What's not to love about that?
When you are ready to market your finished music, Studio One makes it easy by connecting you to your account on Nimbit®, the leading direct-to-fan musician’s-services site. Once again, just export your work and check a box. Your music can be on sale minutes after you finish exporting the final version.
The engineering team that created Studio One has been developing DAWs for many years. With Studio One, they had the opportunity to create a new DAW from the ground up that would be lean, fast, and take advantage of the latest computer technology.
The result is a highly optimized and streamlined codebase that makes minimal demands on your CPU and is written for multicore processors, so Studio One takes full advantage of the maximum computing power your multiprocessor system can deliver. It also uses 64-bit memory addressing, so when run under a 64-bit operating system (such as Windows 7 and 8 and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and later), the software can address as much RAM as your computer can handle.
The practical advantage is that you can have more tracks, more effects plug-ins, more virtual instruments, and speedier processing.
