Immediate Studio One Fan!

This Protools user (of 8 years) was NOT impressed with Avid's tactic of forcing users into a pay subscription who had already paid for software and hardware. I also had paid for multiple upgrade costs and plug-ins. At Least I didn't have thousands in Protools hardware like many unfortunate now-trapped folks. I was very hesitant at first given my familiarity with PT but took the dive and wow!!! No regrets whatsoever! The lay-out and work flow is so much more intuitive for me, less crashes and weird hick-ups than any version of PT I ever had. So much more intuitive I needed very little training to get up and going - So unlike PT. My first tracked and mixed song was faster and turned out better than anything I've done in PTs. To be fair, I'm not a heavy user but my opinion is Protools is more complicated than it needs to be. Editing in PT has more options but I'm guessing everyone but the full-time pro guys would love Studio One. Plus, I'd rather give my money to nice people, interested in support and community. I've had a Presonus Studiolive for years of solid performance and excellent customer service when needed. Great resources on the web as well. The connectivity from Studio One to the Studiolive was flawless as well! Thanks Presonus! Bye bye Avid!

Great DAW

After years of continuous small but frustrating issues with Pro Tools I finally decided to switch to a different DAW. I selected Studio One 3 and now wish I had done it sooner. Studio One 3 is rock solid, it just feels new and fresh, with quite a few new functions that I immediately found useful and PT doesn't have yet. Learning its very intuitive workflow was easy, I was up and running in no time at all.

Simple, Easy to use DAW which improves the workflow!

Simply easy to get into the mixing workflow! Great customizable layout and much, much more!!


So...I've used every DAW on Earth over the past 10 years. In my opinion, there is NOTHING that comes close to the speed, power, workflow, integration, versatility, and overall quality as STUDIO ONE 3. This is a VERY serious DAW!DO NOT fall for the lame old line that..."Pro Tools is the industry standard." Those days are long gone, friends. Even a number of my close friends who have been using Pro Tools for years are switching over once they actually take the time to look at what SO3 can do. They're amazed!Before you pull the trigger on ANY DAW, I would strongly encourage you to look very seriously into Studio One 3. I'm never looking back.

Best of all worlds

Having been working with DAWs since the late '90s, I have always yearned for something that brought all of the best ideas from cubase, logic and pro tools into one platform. This is it.
