Record, produce, mix, master, and perform all from a single, intuitive application. Designed with ease of use at its core, Studio One® 5 is your creative partner from studio to stage. Studio One is driven by tools that enhance your creativity without getting in the way; we pioneered its drag-and-drop workflow that continues to be imitated elsewhere. Laborious tasks that take five steps in other DAWs usually only take... One. A popular example: you can convert MIDI to audio and back with a simple drag-and-drop.
Most of your work will take place in the Song Page, where you get unlimited tracks and buses, alongside everything else you need to record, compose, edit, and mix: a complete set of virtual instruments for synthesis (mono and poly) sample-instrument playback, and rhythm; a complete suite of Native Effects plug-ins with a fresh new look and some amazing features new in Version 5, including State Space Modeled analog drive on select plug-ins; and groundbreaking tools for song arranging and prototyping. Studio One’s exclusive Project page lets you master your compositions and comp your record, simply by dragging and dropping your Song file. Studio One handles the versioning and rendering for you, so you always know you’re working on the latest mix.
New in version 5: we’ve leveraged some of our award-winning Notion notation technology to add our new Score View. View multiple tracks on the same Score. View the same track in Score and Piano View at the same time. A streamlined pallet of playback symbols lets you add crescendos, trills and more without rerecording your track. We’ve also added MIDI Polyphonic Expression support for advanced, modern MIDI controllers.
Last and far from least—for the first time and new with version 5, Studio One can join you on stage. The new Show Page lets you add virtual instruments, backing tracks, and plug-in effects to your live instruments with an easy-to-use Setlist. Sculpt your performance and change your show each night, or do a quick edit on the fly when inspiration strikes (or the opening band runs long).
The standard for end-to-end production, only Studio One 5 seamlessly moves with you from initial inspiration to full production, final mix to mastered album, digital release to stage production… and lets you truly create without boundaries.

An Accessible Pro DAW
I was using ProTools but then they decided they'd rather do the bulk of their biz with pro's and sacrifice the market share they had with work-a-day home recorders. Happily StudioOne is easy to use and reasonably priced, and while they don't really take phone calls they answer emails pretty quickly. Professionals can and do make market releases with this software, but Presonus doesn't seem to share the elitist tendencies of some other DAW makers, and so working class people like myself can access this wonderful product...Version: PreSonus Studio One 3
The most powerful and user-friendly DAW
After a very long hiatus, I am a former audio-engineer guy who was discovering and coming into the new technology and way of recording with DAW software in 2014. The one thing that attracted me to PreSonus in the day was the price-point as well as the pleasing GUI/layout/design, tutorials, and the initial ease of use for a guy just getting started. Since then, I have grown comfortable with Studio One, and I upgraded from the Producer version to Professional version in 2016. I have tried my hand working with Ableton and other DAWs, and I still prefer the layout and workflow of Studio One. It is the core of my personal studio. Especially with the release of version 4.5, the DAW is completely feature-packed.Version: PreSonus Studio One 4
Really great DAW for serious musicians
Version 4 is a great update to an already great DAW. The upgrades to Impact XT, SampleOne XT and Presence XT is awesome, I've also purchased the Presence XT Editor upgrade: https://shop.presonus.com/Presence-XT-Editor Enabling unlimited creative possibilities with scripting and the whole shebang. IMHO this should have been included, but, I got it for a nice price, so I figured, why not... The chord track and pattern editor are both great additions, making it easier to create beats and melodies.

A Versatile Daw
Long story short, I love it. This is the first DAW I ever spent money on. I felt it was time for me to use a real DAW (instead of shuffling trial versions of other DAWs). As with any DAW, you want something that offers a good workflow, community, and sound library. I was hesitant to spend money on this DAW, which is widely regarded as an "up-and-comer", but I definitely feel like I got my money's worth. The workflow is fantastic and the community is supportive. I am a novice producer (and that's being generous) but the functionality of this DAW has kept me motivated and invested in the process. I highly recommend this Presonus Studio One. It's not an up-and-comer. It's the real deal.Version: PreSonus Studio One 4
Super free DAW!
Keeping in mind, that the numbers of possible tracks is not limited, neither for audio nor for MIDI tracks, places Studio One Prime close to Cakewalk by Bandlab, which is still the best free DAW in the world.
It is indeed not that common with freeware version of a professional DAW! You name them. What Studio One Prime offers you is to create and record music without being restricted by any limitations in terms of amount of midi/audio tracks etc. What more could you aks for?Version: PreSonus Studio One 4
