PreSonus has released Studio One 5.3 – the second update version of its recording and production DAW in less than three months – adding features for scoring, creative production, live performance and general workflow, many in response to feedback from Studio One users and PreSonus Sphere members.

With the addition of musical symbols playback in Studio One 5.3 Professional, composers working in Score View or Piano View can now connect musical symbols and dynamic markings to Sound Variations (introduced in v5.2). Musical symbols playback works with any orchestral library that features corresponding articulations. A new tab in the Sound Variations mapping editor enables mapping symbols to Sound Variations using intuitive drag-and-drop or by auto-mapping based on the Sound Variation names of the currently-selected instrument.

PreSonus Studio One 5.3A new Musical Symbols lane for the Note Editor lets you view symbols and Sound Variation events side-by-side. Users can apply musical symbols in either the Note Editor or the Score View, and they will render accurately in both. Output mapping of Sound Variations has been extended to include Midi channel information as part of the activation sequence, enabling virtual instruments such as Native Instruments’ Kontakt to address specific articulations.

Version 5.3 also adds several new save, export, and archive options, including the ability to upload Zip archives directly from Studio One 5 Professional to a PreSonus Sphere workspace for backing up Songs, Projects and Shows and sharing them with other Studio One 5 users. A consolidated Convert To option in Studio One Professional’s File menu enables exporting and archiving of documents for transfer and backup, including all referenced media files and alternative versions, with optional lossless audio file compression. Save Songs as AAF, Capture Session, Midi File, or Open TL from the same menu.

Fulfilling a major user request, the Chord Track, introduced in Studio One 4 Professional, has been significantly enhanced, adding the ability to convert Chord events into Note events by dragging the Chord events to an Instrument Track. Chord notes can also be extracted from an Audio event, then applied to a Midi Instrument, all via drag-and-drop.

Studio One 5.3 adds further features and enhancements, including drag-and-drop support for FX Chains and seamless patch changes between sounds in the Show Page, so that sustained notes are not cut off during patch changes. MPE support for VST3 instruments has been implemented using Note Controllers in Studio One Artist and Professional, and shortcuts have been added to quickly open the External Device editor from a PreSonus Atom or Atom SQ pad controller.
