Product Description

Presonus Studio One 3 Professional upgrade  (PreSonus Studio One Producer to Professional upgrade )

This upgrade is for owners of Presonus Studio One Producer 2 who want to upgrade to Studio One Professional 3.

PreSonus Studio One 3 Professional offers an integrated approach to recording music, from tracking to mixing to mastering and distribution. Featuring a flow oriented, drag-and-drop interface, the software is built for intuitive use, speed, and efficiency. The software includes the fully licensed Integrated-Melodyne pitch correction plug-in, Red Book CD burning, and video playback and sync.

Studio One 3 is robust enough for the most complex productions, delivering full audio and MIDI recording and editing capabilities with 36 audio effects plug-ins, 4 Note FX (MIDI effects), and 5 virtual instruments, including the new Presence XT sampler and the Mai Tai polyphonic synthesizer. There are no limits on track count, plug-in instantiations, or editing features.
