New in V5.3
Musical Symbols and Dynamics Processing are now integrated with Sound Variations Both Musical Symbols and Dynamics Processing have been added to the Sound Variations editor. The integration of Musical Symbols allows composers to add symbols to their scores in a manner already familiar to them—and virtual instruments will respond with the appropriate performance articulations. Dynamics symbols are tied to MIDI Velocity, with customizable values.
Musical Symbols also now receive their own Lane in the Note Editor—any changes made in Score View will be reflected in Piano View, and vice-versa. The Lane is divided into note-based Articulations—such as Staccato, Accent, or Portamento; and range-based Directions like Pizzicato, Vibrato, or Col Legno. Musical Symbols are now displayed directly on Note Events, and there’s even a Variations Global Track view atop the Piano View.
Musical Symbols can be mapped by hand, or Auto-Assigned based on the Sound Variation names of the currently-loaded instrument. And perhaps best of all, orchestral libraries from our friends at Vienna Symphonic Library, UJAM, and EastWest have already done the Sound Variations mapping of their robust libraries for you—a major time-saver!
MIDI channel support for Sound Variations and improved selection Studio One 5.3 has extended the output mapping of Sound Variations to include MIDI channel information as part of an activation sequence. MIDI channel mapping can be used alone or in combination with other activation messages like keyswitches, controllers, or velocity—deepening Sound Variations’ usability with Kontakt instruments. Sound Variations are faster and easier than ever to search and apply thanks to a quick right-click menu of recently-used Variations—for quick re-application—and a one-click “apply” button to place the currently-active Sound Variation at the cursor point. Show Page improvements
Drag ‘n’ drop more things to create Patches on the fly Drag ‘n’ drop now works in the Show Page for virtual instrument Presets—drag a Preset from the Browser to a Player and it will create a new instance of the associated Instrument and create a new Patch. The same works with dragging Ampire to a Real Instrument or Backing Track Player—it even works with complex FX chains.
Seamless patch changes When playing virtual instruments live, seamlessly switching between different sounds is a must! Virtual Instrument Player Patch changes are now gapless during a performance, so long notes held across patch changes will not be cut off while the new instrument is activated. Format conversion and backup options
Zip and upload to PreSonus Sphere In 5.3, you can now save any Document (Song, Show, or Project) to a .ZIP file, with the options to convert all media to .FLAC and/or exclude any unused media—keeping your file sizes down. And with one extra click, Studio One will upload your .ZIP to PreSonus Sphere Workspace for safekeeping or collaboration. Of course, you and your collaborators can download them again straight from the Cloud tab of Studio One’s Browser—you don’t have to leave Studio One and mess about with your computer’s file explorer or Internet browser. And Studio One can also open any Zip it makes. You’ve also got new options to quickly export .AAF, Capture Sessions, MIDI Files or Open TL via the “Convert To…” option in the File menu. New creative applications of The Chord Track
Rapid chord progression prototyping via D’n’D With a single drag ‘n’ drop (of course), you can now drag a Chord Event from the Chord Track into an Instrument Track to render a simple Note Event chord to play with—great for auditioning and prototyping new arrangements. You can even drag an Audio Event directly to an Instrument Track to render your chords as a Note Event, if the chords had been detected before.
MPE support for VST3 instruments 5.3 adds MPE support for VST3 instruments using Note Controllers in Studio One. This allows MPE compatible VST3 instruments to work with Studio One and compatible hardware controllers. Great for users of those instruments which automatically hide their VST2 counterpart when a VST3 version is installed.
Audio Clip Versions New in Studio One 5.2, you can now create new versions of audio clips to add more creative freedom to clip-based editing. Use multiple versions of a clip that references the same audio file to try alternative edits with Melodyne, Bend Markers, or Gain Envelopes to dial in just the effect you need.
Mix Console Your mixing workflow is unique. Your mixing console should be too. That’s why Studio One® lets you resize the Mixer windows and faders with both narrow and wide views, compact and expanded inserts, and Send Views. Freely reorder channels or have Studio One organize the Mixer automatically. At any time you can simply select multiple channels to create a temporary or ad-hoc group. You can change settings such as volume or pan for all selected channels without having to create a group first. Show or hide the Input Mixer, output channels, and hardware controls as you need. New in Studio One 5, powerful Mix Scenes capture a snapshot of the entire console, including view/hide state, fader levels, effects chains, and more. Scenes can be recalled in part or in full using your mouse, keyboard, or any hardware controller. The Studio One Mix Console makes sure that you have access to the critical functions you need, customized just for you.
Safety Options Let’s face it: crashes happen. And unfortunately, the larger your plug-in library grows, the more potential for an unstable plug-in to crash your session grows as well. Studio One 5.2 makes troubleshooting Song, Project and Shows with possibly crashing plug-ins easier by automatically launching the new Safety Options window the next time you open Studio One after a crash. This window lets you pick from a number of safety options in order to isolate the problem and prevent the crash from happening again.
