Create Without Boundaries. Produce Without Limits. Perform Without Fear.
From studio to stage, Studio One 5 is your creative partner, production assistant, online publisher, mastering suite, and bandmate. No other DAW lets you compose, record, produce, mix, master, and perform... all from a single application with an intuitive, time-saving drag-and-drop workflow.
Studio One is the only DAW that lets you record, produce, compose, mix, master, publish, and perform from a single intuitive interface—and its drag-and-drop workflow will supercharge your creativity. While Studio One is loaded with world-class virtual instruments and effects that keep your imagination flowing, it’s also a robust creative tool for songwriters and arrangers thanks to its Chord Track and Harmonic Editing, allowing you to quickly audition new harmony and chord structures in Instrument Tracks and even Audio Tracks. The built-in Project Page handles all of your mastering needs, and when your EP or podcast is done, you can publish directly to SoundCloud without leaving the application. When it comes time to perform and support your record, use Studio One’s new Show Page live on-stage to leverage your studio tracks as backing tracks; play virtual instruments live; use the third-generation Ampire live to re-create your studio guitar tones; and Studio One Native Effects to process your live vocals. You can even create and rearrange your entire setlist, show after show. All from Studio One.
Record, produce, compose, mix, master, and perform all from a single, intuitive application. Designed with ease of use at its core, Studio One® 5 is your creative partner from studio to stage.
