Presonus S1U-A3P3-BLU

Studio One Professional (upgrade from Artist)

Order Code: S1U-A3P3-BLU
Our Price: $399.99

This upgrade package takes you from Studio One 3 Artist, all the way up to Studio One 3 PRO.

Studio One 3 Pro UPG includes a USB installer, which is handy because the extra included content is bulging with an extra 15 Gb of samples and sounds not found on Studio One 3 Artist.

Of course, it's not just extra samples you're chasing though, and with Studio One 3 Pro you'll be getting a whole lot more than what you're already using with 'Artist'

For starters, the audio export gets beefed up with FLAC and MP3 options available. You also get video import and video track playback window, for those who are using Studio One 3 for sound design.

If you're looking to take your project to the next level of creativity, Studio One 3 Pro also unlocks the joys of extended FX chains (simple drag and drop), which offer parallel processing, along with multi-instruments.

Oh, and the full version of Melodyne Essentials pitch correction tool is also included.

Step up and join the Studio One 3 Pro party
