This DAW is a sound designers dream. It has splitter fx where you can route audio to different chains of fx either by frequency or just a signal split. It allows you to compile multiple vst instruments as one instrument using the multi instruments. It has amazing plugin window management, if you search me on youtube you can see a video I've uploaded on this. Melodyne integration is amazing. It keeps me more organized then even logic did. It has render audio fx abilities where you can apply fx to the region or track and bounce and render it. This DAW has everything I love about every DAW I've ever played with!
I've spent the better part of the past 6 months bouncing files from Ableton to S1 Pro, mostly because I was so stuck with how easy and quick it was to create a a track from start to finish. 2 days ago everything clicked and I'm almost positive I'll never need to dip into another DAW again. It really does take the best parts from Ableton and Cubase and creates a powerhouse DAW with everything I'll ever need. I hope this somewhat shallow review of mine helps out some of you.
This is the best DAW there is, mate. I recently switched from FL Studio to Studio One and let me tell you, there are a lot of things this software offers that fruity loops didn't. I own the artist version of the DAW, so I haven't yet explored all the capabilities of this DAW. I am planning to buy the pro version within the next 6-12 months. Since this suits my needs, it shouldn't necessarily suit all your needs the way you want it to. Don't be sheep, do your research, find your DAW, buy it. All the DAW are good, just find what you need.
Been doing music since a while now Since 2009 been on nearly every daw there is, Pro Tools, ableton, propellerhead reason, bitwig studio, cubase, Logic, FL studio, Every one can't be compared to Studio one. Logic is load of Shite Crashes often and its only for the shit imacs? Imacs are horrible machines and over priced garbage you pay for £/$1000 for shitty specs which costs around £200 if you got same specs for Windows.. Plus Logic is slow, too much hassling about to draw some simple notes ... Bitwig studio is kinda half cool supports Both 32/64Bit plugins no matter what bit machine your using! So can use them old vintage plugins, But it was new when i tried it kept on crashing on me even tho they promosed that vst won't crash the daw.. aswel as when playing certain hits on the drum machine its out of pitch was ok Daw... Reason was my first daw was half good but same time had no audio support on the tracks, and Most of all no VST SUPPORT STILL! .. Fl studio another daw that has old crappy style e.g i make a drum pattern if i wanted to change or remove one simple kick i have to re-create whole drum pattern again so gave up, ableton was great, just everything seem slow,l the search engine on it is HORRIBLE takes least 5 good mins to search something.. Feck other Daws, Presonus studio one is PERFECT... Fastest Daw and fastest way i can get ideas down on the Daw, the search engine is Fecking amazing search something within seconds Boom "Hi hat" found, and when ever theres new version they upgrade BIG Time, even with the updates they add so much stuff worth every penny. Very easy to use aswel
Hands down my favorite DAW. Very easy to pick up and very hard to put down, Studio One 3 is now my go to. The quality samples it comes with are phenomenal, and the effects (in the Professional edition) are also meaty and packed. I feel as though I've only scratched the surface, but this is one brilliant piece of software. Great for both Dance Music and 'Normal' music!
I use more than one application for my music creation, and haven't had much time to try out all the new features in StudioOne 3, but judging on the feedback from other users this is a good upgrade. I find it very easy to use, with a very pretty GUI on top, this could become a very nice alternative to many of its contenders, did i hear ProTools?
