PreSonus has released Studio One 4.6, the latest version of its recording and production software, including its newly updated third-generation Ampire State Space Modeling amplifier and effects plugin.
Studio One 4.6 also introduces version 2.0 of its Exchange online content-sharing space.
Other new features include a redesigned Browser with new view options, including a new PreSonus Shop tab, allowing users to explore new content more easily. In addition to the classic List view, the Browser now has a new Gallery view, enabling users to navigate plugins, SoundCloud, Exchange, and Shop content in a more visual way.
The Ampire plugin now has all-new State Space models of five classic amplifiers, plus five stompboxes. A tuner and five new Impulse Response cabinet models have also been added. Ampire is included in the Studio One 4 Professional version 4.6 update and is available as an add-on for Studio One Artist and Prime users for $59.95. The 13 pedal effects are also included in the new Pedalboard plugin, which is free for Studio One 4 Professional users.
Improved Studio One arranging and pattern editing features include the ability to convert Instrument Parts to Patterns, which is ideal for building variations from existing drum grooves. Individual note lengths in Patterns can now be more than one step, which allows for more versatile bass lines and sequences. This new feature works in both Melodic and Drum Pattern modes, and real-time recording into Patterns has also been improved.
Exchange 2.0 features a new http://exchange.presonus.com landing page where users can browse, download, review, and preview Exchange drum maps, effects chains, audio loops, music loops, and presets. In the users’ MyPreSonus account, a new user interface makes it easier to browse, download, review, upload, and “favourite” Exchange assets. Users also now have a public landing page listing their exchange contributions.
Studio One 4.6 is a free update for all registered Studio One 4 users.
