PreSonus Studio One A seducing DAW alternative Grammy nominee Luke Mourinet has worked with artists like Ruff & Jam, Kylie Minogue and Amy Winehouse. A long-time devotee of Cubase and Nuendo, Mourinet now uses PreSonus Studio One Professional. “I used to have tasks spread across several different DAWs,“ says Mourinet. „These days, busy producers have more tasks to cover than ever. More often than not we must deliver our tracks directly to the public. Studio One is the first DAW to cover all tasks from start to finish and deliver mastered, studio quality tracks. The ease of use, interface and workflow are simply out of this world. It sounds great, is very stable and is intuitive and easy to use.“ Switching gears to Studio One Professional after years spent in other DAWs had Mourinet concerned at first but those fears were quickly laid to rest. Mourinet is quick to champion Studio One’s ease of use. “The number of formats it can read and export to is just crazy,” he states. “The Project section allows me to master with ease, with all the tools right where I need them. I can deliver masters in all industry standards, and even produce DDP files! Last but not least, accessing media via the browser in Studio One is just phenomenal; I could go on for hours.” His top three favourite features: The Browser: It¹s the smartest browser I¹ve ever seen in a DAW. I stopped spending time organizing plugins, presets, samples etc, I can recall any of them in a second. Drag, drop, done.

Grammy-Kandidat Luke Mouri-net (Bild) hat schon mit Musikgrößen wie Kylie Minogue oder Amy Winehouse produziert. Nach langjähriger Erfahrung mit Cubase und Nuendo ist er auf PreSonus Studio One Professional umgestiegen. Drei Aspekte haben ihn dabei ganz besonders überzeugt: Der Browser, in dem Plugins, Samples und Presets übersichtlich wie nie zuvor im Drag & DropVerfahren organisiert werden. Der Workflow, der ebenfalls stark an intuitivem Drag & Drop orientiert ist und durch zahlreiche Anpassungsmöglichkeiten, Loop-Synchronisation, exzellenten Timestrech-Algorithmus und intelligente ReWire Möglichkeiten bestimmt ist. Und die nahtlose Einbindung des preisgekrönten Melodyne-Tools zur Tonhöhen-Bearbeitung.

The Workflow: It has it all, Drag & Drop, Hide features, loops synchronization, smartest Rewire integration, timestretch. I really feel in control of my ideas, without the DAW getting in the way. It does it all. It¹s very smart and fast. Melodyne Integration: Who could ask for anything more than an award-winning tool like this to handle your audio tracks? “I couldn’t be happier,” he concludes. “PreSonus has taken care of what we need today; I’m pretty confident that they’ll do the same with what we’ll need tomorrow.” LIKE US AT FACEBOOK:
