Musikmesse 2010: Presonus announce huge updates to Studio One
Great deals on musical instruments

Presonus have released a 1.5 update to their increasingly popular Studio One sequencing software at Musikmesse 2010.

This major free update adds so many important features and enhancements that the company decided to skip the previously planned version 1.1.

Key additions include support for video playback and sync for composing to picture and major enhancements to the Browser?s drag-and-drop capabilities.

In addition there is the ability to draw your own automation waveforms, automation points that are locked to events, a new key-command editor and changing tempos within a event without slicing the event.

A first-of-its-kind, built-in SoundCloud client enables you to upload audio files from Studio One directly to the Web.

The MIDi features have been improved, including a new MIDI file player in the Browser.

You can now import any QuickTime video into a Song for playback and sync, with adjustable video playback size and time offset.

Simply drag-and-drop the video from the Browser into the arrangement to import it and, optionally, simultaneously extract the audio from the video and place it on a new audio track.

A new Follow Edit Position helps sync to specific video frames by adjusting the playback-cursor position based on the current edit position.

Drag an audio event to a location in the File Browser to instantly export a new audio file to that location.

Drag an Instrument Part to the File Browser to export a MIDI clip to a specific location on your drive.

Drag any insert effect or virtual instrument from the Device Rack to the Effects or Instruments Browser to store a preset for the effect or instrument.

Alternatively, drag to the File Browser to export the preset to a specific location on your drive.

You can now draw automation waveforms, and automation points are locked to selected events, so automation moves with the related events.

An Undo history enables viewing and undoing all edits done since the file was opened, even if you have saved since then.

A pitch-name editor is available in the drum layout, and you can save and load names from a pitch-name list.

Version 1.5 adds a new key-command editor with Search and Learn features for creating and modifying keyboard shortcuts.

The search feature finds specific key commands and shows which functions they trigger and also finds specified functions and displays the key commands to which they are assigned.

Studio One now uses dynamic timestretching to change tempos within an event, rather than having to slice the event into separate events with different tempos.

Constrain position when dragging events between tracks within a defined range, use a keyboard shortcut to fast-forward and rewind by measures, and accelerate scrolling while dragging with the new Turbo mode.

When you select a region on a track, you can now extend the selection using Shift and the Up/Down arrow keys.

When you select and remove a range in the Edit menu, the time in between regions will be deleted and the regions will snap together.

Album and Song Art can now be added to the Project and will be included in any exported Digital Release.

A new menu item enables you to upload songs, art, and metadata to the SoundCloud Web service directly from Studio One.

If you right-click a REX file in the Browser and select "Send to new SampleOne," all slices are imported into SampleOne, and a new Instrument Part is created.

Alternatively, you can drag the whole REX file, or individual slices, into the arrangement.

The Pipeline plug-in has gained a scope that enables you to manually alter the offset (in samples) for latency compensation.

The scope displays send and return signals on top of each other and shows you the difference in real time, enabling you to manually adjust delay compensation.

This is much more accurate than the automatic delay compensation found in some DAWs.

In addition, latency compensation has been enabled for effects on input channels, so if you put an effect on an input channel, the software will ensure that the recorded track and processed input remain aligned.

The Spectrum Meter plug-in and the spectrum meter on the Project page (in Studio One Pro) have gained average and peak-hold level indicators with variable time intervals for precise level analysis across the frequency spectrum.

A new Scope plug-in provides in-depth oscilloscope functions for troubleshooting and measurement within Studio One, including three independent/overlaid channels with stereo and sidechain input selection and a mathematical operation channel.

The file Browser has gained a MIDI preview player that sends the MIDI data to a selected Instrument Track for playback.

The player displays the MIDI file?s length in bars and the number of notes in the pattern.

Previously, MIDI quantization only affected Note On messages; now note ends (Note Off) can be quantized, as well.

Furthermore, MIDI files can be expanded in the Browser, and individual tracks can be dragged into the arrangement.

The export features have been significantly improved, including the ability to export entire channels as stems, complete with buses, effects, and instrument returns.

In addition, when you export adjacent regions (between markers), you can now create custom-length overlaps at the head and tail of each region so that you can crossfade between the exported files.

This works sort of like a pre-roll and post-roll - Studio One creates a folder for each region with a name derived from the marker name.
