Your electronic download-only version of Studio One will be installed from a downloaded installer package. Once installed, Studio One must be activated in order to use the program. The following outlines the required steps to download, install, and activate Studio One.
Step 1: Create a User Account
Create a user account at this URL: http://studioone.presonus.com/registration.
Once at the registration page, click on the Register link, and then fill out the form and click on Submit. Please be certain the email address you provide is correct, and that email from PreSonus will not be filtered or deleted by a SPAM filter or other software.
An email from PreSonus Registration will now be automatically sent to the email address you provided in order to verify your email address. Click on the link in this email to activate your account. If you do not see the email within a few minutes of clicking on Submit, then it likely ended up in a spam folder, or was deleted automatically by your email client. In this case, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have you account manually activated.
Step 2: Register, Download, and Install Studio One
Now that you have created and activated your user account, you can register and download your copy of Studio One. Login to your account, then click on Software Registration and enter your Studio One Product Key, then click on Submit. You will then see a list of many download links, and a Software List link. Click on the Software List link and you will then see your copy of Studio One listed with download links below. Click on the appropriate Studio One installer download link for your OS to download the Studio One installer.
Once downloaded, run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install Studio One.
Step 3: Activate Studio One
After installation, launch Studio One and the Activate Studio One menu will appear.
If the computer on which Studio One has been installed is connected to the Internet, click on the Activate Online link and enter your previously created account Username, Password, and the Product Key you received with the Studio One installation disc, or in an email if you made a purchase online. Click on the Activate button to finish the activation process.
If the computer on which Studio One has been installed is not connected to the Internet, click on the Activate Offline link in the Activate Studio One menu, and make note of the Activation Code shown under step 3 in the instructions. Then, go to a computer with an internet connection, visit http://studioone.presonus.com/registration and log in to your account. Click on Software Registration link and enter your Product Key as printed on the Studio One package, or provided via email. Click on Submit and you will then be taken to your Software List, which should now have your Studio One product listed.
Next, click on the Activate link listed next to your Studio One product and enter the Activation Code as given in the Offline Activation menu. You may list a computer name to help you keep track of your 5 allowed activations; for instance, if you intend to install Studio One on a desktop and laptop, you may choose to name the activations “DESKTOP” and “LAPTOP”.
You will then be given a link to download your User License file. Save this file to some external media (CD, thumb drive, etc), and then copy the file to the computer on which Studio One is installed. Finally, you may either locate the file in the Offline Activation menu, or simply drag and drop the file on top of the menu to activate Studio One.
