"DAW for the new era"

What do you like best?

First to market with a 64bit audio summing engine, modern 64bit memory address space, professional tools that meet or exceed what the competition provides and workflows that are perfectly suited to traditional multitrack recording & mixing all the way to the esoteric fringes of electronic music & beyond.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much i dislike about studio one, the only thing I know of that it truly lacks is support for sysex & nrpn messages, which are necessary for gear that either predates the midi era or requires a precision that goes beyond what the midi spec provides.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The pace of progress since v1 is reassuring, and the complement of audio interface and technologies like rednet from Focusrite shows that they are an industry leader committed to supporting this platform for a long long time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Studio one offers a complete workflow for traditional multitrack recording, audio post production & personal remixes done for enjoyment as a DJ.

"An Intuitive DAW"

What do you like best?

Out of the DAWs I have used, StudioOne is the easiest to learn and makes workflow as simple as possible, and still produces high quality sound.

What do you dislike?

My only criticism of Studio One is the video player, as often videos do not load unless converted to not have sound, after extracting the sound into the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it out, and forget everything you know about DAWs. If it feels like you should be able to do something, in StudioOne, you can do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

StudioOne streamlines DAW work, and enables one to create music without being impeded by unnecessary steps. This concise UI allows for faster work, so that more time can be spent analyzing and improving the music.

What Audio Editing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Brilliant"

What do you like best?

The ability to remotely control Studio One from another Windows device such as a Surface, making full use of the touchscreen. It also works well with even cheap Android tablets, and iPads. It also works well with phones, allowing you to control levels etc from the vocal booth to taste.

I also love the Melodyne integration; it's fast become one of my most used tools for sound design and pitch correction.

What do you dislike?

Needs a peer-to-peer collaborative system similar to what Bitwig 2 was meant to bring. If PreSonus could bring a free peer-to-peer collaboration system to Studio One then it would be industry changing.

Could do with integration of industry standard timecode for the video player; this would make Studio One absolutely amazing for scoring TV and film.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want something superior to Logic that will serve you well from composition to recording to mastering then you'll love Studio One.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickly, and efficiently creating an audio workflow that works seamlessly between Windows and OS X (

we're divided currently).

"One of THE MOST POWERFUL Digital Audio Workstation"

What do you like best?

The range of functions you have available from making or adding digital soundtracks to editing recorded music, this is the go to software for professional editing and composing. The software has a huge library of different digital sounds that could be very useful. For the range of functions this software provides, it's relatively easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It could look a little intimidating at first for beginners but I would say I have thoroughly enjoyed the program and have not had a single problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a good software to work with music, I can't think of one that can be so simplistic with the functionality it provides.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I record and compose music and this software has helped make my life easier and better. After getting used to the software, it's incredibly fast to get your work done and if you know exactly what you need, the software is luxurious to use.

"I am Worship Leader, free lance producer and Solo Artist."

What do you like best?

The Ability to mix in a clutter-free DAW. You can make your mixing and tracking process as complicated or as simple as you like. It is my go-to for Mixing.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike most about Studio one is the editing for virtual instruments and midi. It does not give you an individual mixing screen per VST instrument and can get tedious when editing through the interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I Recommend for ease of use in a mixing environment. You can open all VST Software for a single track at one time by switching the tabs located at the top of the editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Studio One is affordable and is as productive as Logic Pro or Pro Tools. It put's out the same quality in audio as any Professional DAW.

"The perfect tool for personal or professional music production"

What do you like best?

The price is what made me switch from Digital Performer. There's a completely FREE version for you to use without time limits. It's really basic and comes with limited features, but at least you have all the time you need to gain experience and feel comfortable before purchasing the full version.

There are 3 different version with different features, but the price range is low compared to other DAW, and every once in a while PreSonus releases good offers to upgrade.

Clean, slick and visually appealing UI. Hundreds of built-in features to speed up your workflow, powerful built-in virtual instruments even for the basic version, smart tools with handy shortcuts, fast and reliable software.

Even with lots of tracks and effect, I never experienced a slow rendering/playback or crash, on a 2011 MacBook Pro.

What do you dislike?

The amount of options can be overwhelming at first. You can literally do everything you want, and this much freedom can confuse you and loose you inside small options windows or editing panels.

An aspect not directly connected to the software is that, because it's a fairly new DAW, it's hard to find good resources or tutorials online, compared to other products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding a cheap and professional software for home recording and music production.

Having the ability to seamlessly upgrade to a more complete version in case of business necessity.

"Powerful DAW and Production tool"

What do you like best?

The UI/UX and workflow is fast and natural. It just makes sense. The editor provides amazing utility. Routing and access to effects and tools is logical and elegant.

What do you dislike?

Nothing is a deal-breaker. More asset management tools would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the free demo. The last three updates have added massive tools for music production. The editor and interface on the whole just allow you to get your sound produced quickly without having to wonder which menu to use. The interface and workflow alone are worth a look.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's replaced my DAW and allows me to avoid Adobe Audition.

"Best DAW software on the market"

What do you like best?

ARA access and Melodyne integration is essential for what I do. Studio One does it better than anybody else.

What do you dislike?

I wish it could easily import or export Pro Tools sessions. MIDI and control surface support (EUCON, specifically) could be better

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed a way to organize and quickly edit and mix multiple sessions for several groups I work with. Studio One's editing and session management tools are second to none, and they save me time when I have a client waiting.

"On par with other DAWs"

What do you like best?

It's comparable to other DAWs I've used. It's an easy transition coming from Ableton, Pro Tools, etc.

What do you dislike?

Not as many people are using this software. Most of my colleagues are familiar with the ones that set the standard.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's simple to use and causes less headaches. I was having some glitch problems with Ableton. When recording, every minute counts. Studio One has definitely saved me some time.

"Studio One"

What do you like best?

Visually clean, works well, functions properly. Can import shortcuts from other DAWs. Is fairly intuitive.

What do you dislike?

I dislike having to select a piece of audio before being able to select all the following audio pieces with key commands. I wish I could click anywhere and then use key commands to select all following audio.

Also, it is hard to find some things in the menu, when trying change options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Editing radio shows with phone interviews.
