For those who want it all, we offer Studio One Professional, which has everything in Studio One Artist and Producer and adds the Project page, an integrated mastering solution; fully licensed Melodyne Essential pitch correction; SoundCloud support; Red Book CD burning; video playback and sync; and five more Native Effects plug-ins: Groove Delay, Multiband Dynamics, OpenAIR, Pipeline, and IR Maker.
Here are some of the important new features in Studio One 2.
Integrated Melodyne Pitch Correction
Celemony’s Melodyne is the most sought-after pitch-correction solution in the market, and it has been the model for proprietary solutions in several DAWs. Studio One 2 seamlessly integrates Melodyne so tightly that, for practical purposes, Melodyne is simply a part of Studio One.⇑ Learn more
Using Melodyne in other DAWs can be very slow due to the long-winded transfer from the track to Melodyne and the fact that Melodyne knows nothing about edits in the arrangement after this transfer.
In contrast, Studio One 2 seamlessly integrates Melodyne so tightly that, for practical purposes, Melodyne is simply a part of Studio One. With one click, your audio opens in the Editor with the familiar Melodyne interface and capabilities. Hear your Melodyne edits in context with the rest of the arrangement, and when finished editing, easily render the audio in place—no track transfer or manual rendering! Furthermore, edits made in the arrangement are seamlessly synced in Melodyne. Want to go back to where you were in Melodyne? No problem: It takes one click. No other DAW can do this.
No other DAW offers a truly integrated mastering suite comparable to the Project page in Studio One Professional. In version 1, this integration was obvious: As you add Songs to a Project (collection of Songs), the Songs and the Project are intelligently linked so that changes to one are automatically updated in the other. Inevitably, when you are mastering a Project, you’ll need to change an arrangement or alter a mix. Studio One Professional keeps track of all these changes and automatically updates all Projects that contain the revised Song. Anyone who has resequenced an album for the 39th time to accommodate a tweak to a vocal outro on the 12th chorus knows how big an advantage this is!
Mastering an album is much more than sequencing and level-matching. Studio One Professional provides all of the necessary tools for professional production, including a phase meter and spectrum and peak/RMS level meters with K-System options. To all of this, Studio One Professional 2 adds DDP Export, PQ editing, higher-quality sample-rate conversion, and other professional features.
Transient detection, editing, and groove extraction.
Sure, you can do transient detection and editing in other DAWs—but it can be slow and painful. In Studio One, you simply select an audio event and press Q to quantize. Groove extraction is as simple as drag-and-drop; extract a groove from any audio and apply it to any other audio in seconds!
Multitrack comping done right.
Single and multitrack comping are quick and easy in Studio One—and faster than with most DAWs! No tool-switching is needed, and crossfading between takes is automated, although you can edit the fades. Auditioning takes is as simple as holding Alt and clicking on a take.
Find it quickly.
Studio One’s Browser offers quick access to instruments, effects, sounds, files, and more. In version 2, you can search within any location in the Browser, making it even faster and easier to find the resources you want.
Organize your tracks.
Organizing related tracks and working with them as a group is a breeze with Folder Tracks. Group and bus your Folder Tracks with the click of a button—an exclusive Studio One feature.
Edit multiple MIDI tracks simultaneously.
Now you can view and edit more than one instrument track at a time in the Music Editor, including editing multiple parts on different Tracks at once.
A great plug-in collection just got better.
Studio One’s Native Effects plug-ins have drawn rave reviews from the media. Now they’re even better. The Ampire guitar-amp modeler is now Ampire XT and features new amp models, a new convolution-based cabinet-modeling section and an effects section. And the new OpenAIR convolution reverb delivers ultra-realistic reverberation based on real spaces and classic hardware reverbs. To top it off, with the new IR Maker, you can capture your own impulse responses.
