PreSonus has announced the release of Studio One 2.5, a major update to the company's Studio One 2 DAW. This free (to Studio One 2 users) update adds nearly 100 enhancements and features, as well as many bug fixes. All versions of Studio One 2 have been updated, including Studio One Artist, Producer, Professional, and Free.
Although the update adds some entirely new features, it mostly builds on existing Studio One 2 features, completing and enhancing functionality based on PreSonus' original vision and on user feedback.
New features and enhancements of particular interest include:
In addition, all Studio One Producer and Professional users can now download a free copy of Softube's Saturation Knob plug-in. The plug-in is provided in a Studio One Extension, and it is not necessary to create a Softube account or authorize the plug-in.See the next page for details.
A presonus spokesperson told Sonic State, "No other DAW comes close to Studio One in frequency and overall value of free updates during the lifetime of a major version. In particular, the improvements to Studio One 2's advanced features, such as Comping, Folder Tracks, Track Transform, and Automation, as well as continued improvements to core workflow features such as drag-and-drop, reflect PreSonus' commitment to excellence and attentiveness to user requests and needs."
