PreSonus has stated that Studio One 5.5 features “the number one user features request for the Project Page”. New tools included in the free update include full track volume, master volume and insert effect plug-in automation to the Project Page.

This allows us to write automation in real-time or draw it with the Paint tool. Now also featured in the Project Page is Clip Gain Envelopes which allows for precise control over gain issues while mastering, without the need for any dynamic altering plug-ins!

A new Listen Bus on the Project Page allows us to monitor through room correction plugins or headphone monitoring tools without affecting the master output one bit.

Digital publishing features have also been upgraded by PreSonus. We can now export to multiple audio formats at once. This means we can create different versions of any track for high-res releases and streaming services alike – all at once. Studio One 5.5 now offers Target Loudness options for popular streaming services, along with a new dithering algorithm that minimizes conversion artefacts.

The production and performance workflows of the DAW have also seen updates. Now, we can now drag any MIDI file directly to the Chord Track and extract its chords that way, as well as create custom strum patterns by dragging note events in a selected chord! PreSonus states that the Ampire XT guitar amp/pedalboard plugin now offers faster-preset switching, optimized for the Show Page so that we can switch between presets from a MIDI pedalboard during a live performance.

We can also now have automation data with Mix Scenes for experimenting with multiple automation passes. The Plugin Nap feature that was introduced in Studio One 5.4 is now available for each plugin too.

The Studio One 5.5 update is free for registered owners of Studio One 5. It’s also included in the PreSonus Sphere subscription.

Studio One 5 is available from Thomann.

Copy FX Chains from one channel to another simply by dragging-and-dropping. Convert MIDI to audio or audio to MIDI using drag-and-drop. Upload and download files to and from your PreSonus Sphere Workspaces by drag-and-drop. Ease of use is at the heart of Studio One, so your mind stays focused on your inspiration.
