PreSonus has released Studio One 3.5, an extensive update to the Mac/Windows DAW that includes 60 new features and enhancements.

PreSonus Studio One 3.5

Version 3.5 eliminates the need for hardware DSP by introducing native low-latency software monitoring. When used with a high-speed audio interface, such as the PreSonus Quantum, Studio One 3.5’s redesigned audio-engine latency management allows supports native processing domain throughout the production process. The result is faster performance and better stability, including Dropout Protection that reduces the risk of audio dropouts in CPU-heavy songs, even at very small buffer settings.

Native low-latency software monitoring works on virtual instruments, as well, enabling VIs to be played live, typically with unnoticeable latency. For DSP-equipped interfaces such as the PreSonus Studio 192 series, users can choose between low-latency hardware and low-latency-software monitoring.

Studio One 3.5 Professional introduces a revised Project page with file-independent track markers that can be inserted and positioned freely in the Project page arrangement. This enables CD tracks to span multiple songs and allows long, continuous recordings to be divided into multiple tracks without splitting the audio.

The new Project page also updates loudness detection and the display of results to meet the latest loudness metering standards. The updated Peak/Loudness level meter now has several loudness metering options, including EBU R128, with two different display ranges. The revised Spectrum meter offers several new features, including Segments and 12th Octave views, the latter of which features a convenient keyboard scale.

The new Undo Faders feature implements ‘undo’ for the entire mixer, including plug-ins, instruments, routing, I/O selection, FX chains, and more. Mixer actions are now added to the Undo History like any other action.

Thanks to Studio One 3.5’s new Fat Channel XT plug-in, StudioLive Series III users can transfer complete mix scenes, including Fat Channel settings, to Studio One and back. (Series III users will need to update to Universal Control 2.1 or later.) The plug-in is bit-by-bit identical to the Fat Channel of the new StudioLive Series III mixers and offers the same routing and processing capabilities, including the alternative vintage compressor and EQ models. In addition, it offers remote control of StudioLive Series III mic preamps and Fat Channels directly from Studio One.

With Studio One 3.5 and the concurrent release of Notion 6.2, PreSonus has further developed the integration between its DAW and scoring applications. Data can now be sent and received from existing Notion documents, rather than creating a new Song each time to transfer data. Studio One and Notion can also now share full tempo maps, including time signature changes and markers.

Other new features include independent recording and playback devices for Mac OS so that thereneed to create a system-level Aggregate Device; optimised Song and Project file formats that save and auto-save more than ten times faster than before; support for multiple touchscreens; and new options for exporting or bouncing events. An updated Show/Hide Automation command affects all automation combined, and when adding Instrument parameter automation, a new automation lane is now added directly on the currently selected Instrument track.

Version 3.5 is free to registered Studio One 3.x users.
