Bad ***

Yeah man, this is the goods. Lot's of smart features. Not as many bundled instruments as logic but quality stuff and accepts all the plugin types, so load it up.

Great workflow

I tried out several DAWs before going with Studio One. This ine seemed to have the easiest workflow for recording guitar and has a very nice, clean interface. Try out Studio One Prime, theri free version and I think you will be convinced.
4.5/5

Studio One Pro, so far so good

I like this program and all the possibilities I've yet to explore. But after using and learning Pro Tools, this PreSonus Studio One is much more user friendly and less "counter-intuitive." I look forward to growing into it as I grow in my ability.

Good but not necessarily great for me

I'm very impressed with Studio One 3. It has all of the bells and whistles of the top DAWs out there and then some. The ease of setup and use is unparalleled. Still, it isn't quite what I need right now. I have an SSL Nucleus control surface and El Capitan as my OS on a Mac. This version of Studio One simply doesn't play well with that combination of OS and Nucleus. I'll keep Studio One to mess around with but I'll have to go with another DAW for my Nucleus.
