PreSonus Studio One 5.5 Update Delivers New Mastering Tools

Posted on: Thursday 13th of January 2022

PreSonus Studio OnePreSonus has released a major update to its Studio One DAW. The new 5.5 iteration adds improvements for production, performance, and mastering, touting itself as the first and only DAW with an integrated mastering environment, which sits as part of Studio One’s Project Page.

With Studio One 5.5, the Project Page now provides full track volume, master volume and insert-effects plug-in parameter automation, meaning users can write automation in real-time, using a mouse or hardware controller, or by using the Paint Tool. Clip Gain Envelopes have also been added to the Project Page, enabling you to precisely fix gain issues while mastering, without using dynamics plug-ins, while the new Listen Bus on the allows monitoring through room-correction plug-ins or headphone monitoring tools without affecting the Master output. It’s also possible to free up processing power for complex mastering chains without losing the ability to make adjustments later using Track Transform.

Digital Release publishing feature now provide the ability to export multiple formats at once, while the new Target Loudness options let you set target values for loudness and true peak during export — or choose from presets for every popular streaming service. There’s also a new, proprietary dithering algorithm.
Studio One 5.5 also introduces production and performance features: any MIDI file can now be dragged directly to the Chord Track to extract its chords — and Studio One’s chord detection works with Audio Events and Instrument Parts. You can now create a strum pattern manually by dragging note events in a selected chord while holding modifier keys.

PreSonus’ Ampire XT guitar amp/cabinet/pedalboard plug-in, available in Studio One 5.5, adds faster preset switching optimised for the Show Page.

Other improvements include saving automation with mix scenes, so you can experiment with multiple automation passes without losing work. The Plug-in Nap feature introduced in version 5.4 is now available on a per plug-in basis. Improvements have also been added for PreSonus ATOM-series controllers with Impact XT and SampleOne XT.

Studio One 5.5 is a free update for registered Studio One 5 users and is included in PreSonus Sphere membership. For more information, visit this webpage.
