Studio One 2.5.1 Release Notes

February 25, 2013

This is a maintenance update that includes several quality and stability improvements, as well as a few feature enhancements.

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE UPDATING: As part of this release all dynamics plug-ins have been updated to address an issue introduced in version 2.5 that caused audible artifacts when using the Auto or Adaptive modes. As a side effect of this fix, affected channels may have a higher output volume compared to version 2.5. You should expect to adjust mix settings after updating to 2.5.1.

The following plug-ins are affected:

Compressor with envelope on Auto or Adaptive
Tricomp™ with envelope on Auto
Multiband Dynamics with envelope on Auto
Auto Filter with envelope on Auto
Dynamics section in Channel Strip

If you're in doubt which songs might be affected, please make sure to create mixdowns before updating to 2.5.1.

  • Support for Japanese characters in Project export (toggled via program language)
