PreSonus has released Studio One 4.6, the latest version of the company’s recording and production software that includes the updated third-generation Ampire State Space Modeling amplifier and effects plugin. Version 4.6 also introduces v2.0 of the Exchange online content-sharing space for Studio One.
In addition, v4.6 offers a redesigned browser with new view options for more intuitive navigation, including a new PreSonus Shop tab designed to allow users to explore new content with a mouse click. In addition to the classic List view, the browser now has a new Gallery view for navigation of plugins, Soundcloud, Exchange, and Shop content in a more visual way.
The Ampire plugin includes 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 v4.6 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.
Fruther upgrades include improved Studio One arranging and pattern editing, including the ability to convert Instrument Parts to Patterns. Individual note lengths in Patterns can now be more than one step to foster more versatile bass lines and sequences. It works in both Melodic and Drum Pattern modes. Real-time recording into Patterns has also been improved.
Exchange v2.0 has a new landing page (here) where users can browse, download, review, and preview Exchange drum maps, effects chains, audio loops, musicloops, and presets. In MyPreSonus accounts, a new user interface is designed to make it easier to browse, download, review, upload, and “favorite” 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.
