Everything in one place

For a 72 year old retired studio owner and operator of the analog days, it has amazed me how quickly I have been able to scale the learning curve for Studio One. Back in the day, I had an MCI JH636 console and JH 24-24 recorder with another $50,000 in outboard gear, The idea of learning to use a DAW was somewhat intimidating until I started doing it. As I begin to fiddle with it, I could suddenly see how it related to the older analog systems I had made a pretty good living with. But, with all of the effects available at the click of a button. I never did like patch bays. PreSonus has done a great job of designing Studio One. Recording is now a hobby for me but I a very impressed with this software.

Presonus Artist 3

Hey Sweetwater...I am having a blast getting to know my Presonus 1818 VSL. The upgrade to Artist 3 was necessary to convert mp3 for playing over drumless tracks. I am a drummer of 35 years or so and I cannot believe I have this set up in my house. I'm learning everyday. I did have some trouble with the download at first but Brian Lowerance helped me get things squared away.I,m also the creator of a product called SledgePad...It's dampening system for the acoustic bass drum. Now I can get quality audio for product demos..
Music background: Working drummer for 35 yrs

PreSonus One 3 Artist

Very good product with capabilities I would have expected only from higher priced products. Buy it if you want a great intermediate entry into recording for a beginner's price.
Music background: Since a child


Great program
