The Truth

GUI looks great! VST's sound really good, especially the orchestral and acoustic sounds. Tons of updates; too many to sum up. The new mix engine FX really add sheen, and character. Functionally Studio One v3 is basically flawless.

Big Jump From Producer 2.6 WOW

I had Studio One Version 2 Producer for a year and a few months and I was blown away how it makes the work flow so much more quicker then when I was using Pro-Tools 10&11. Now with Version 3 I'm absolutely loving this software for Production as well as Recording, Mixing and Mastering. I had the trail version at first and I had forgot my trail expired 10 minutes before I had a session. I called Sweetwater and Nathan Parker, my rep at the time was very helpful in passing me information on which upgrade I was to purchase and how he would send the download info. Two minutes on the phone, Five minutes to download, and my session was done right on time..... Thanks PreSonus for a great product and Thanks Sweetwater for GREAT Customer Service.

way more for your buck

I worked 3 days (30 hours) in Studio One 3 before getting my upgrade (by no fault of Sweetwater's) and that was amazing enough. Being an old club musician back "in the day", analog was all I knew before now. I'm in my fifties and the learning curve was exponential because of the screen layout being obviously designed with great consideration for those familiar with boards and rack equipment. The plugins were great in Studio One 3, but when I got this upgrade, the additional plugins alone were worth the price. If you are a live kinda musician, love the stage more than the studio, don't waste your time on any other version. This is the fastest and finest way to record demo's and write material. I can produce a 5 song demo with no sound engineer experience that will rival most 20 hour studio blocks. (and we know how expensive that is). A must have for working musicians.

Great DAW!

Studio One has really upped its game in version 3. Coming from Pro Tools, there is a bit of an adjustment, but all keyboard shortcuts can be mapped to Pro Tools' default layout, making the transition much easier. I love the virtual instruments and drag-and-drop bus and FX creation flexibility.
