Studio One 5.5 has been released with a heap of new features and bug updates.
Here’s a brief overview of what’s new in Studio One 5.5:
1. Track Automation on Project Page
Studio One 5.5 introduces automation to the Project Page.
2. Clip Gain Envelopes on Project Page
The Project Page now provides Clip Gain Envelopes which allows for precision fixes of any gain issues when mastering without the use of dynamics plug-ins.
3. Listen Bus on Project Page
The Project Page now provides a Listen Bus for monitoring via a separate output and effects from the Master output. This lets you use room correction plug-ins or headphone monitoring tools when mastering or mixing.
4. Track Transform on Project Page
The Project Page now includes Track Transform. Track Transform lets you create reversible, non-destructive mastered track renders, including every insert effect and automation parameter. This means you can reduce the required processing power for your session while keeping the flexibility of not committing to permanent mastering decisions.
5. Multiple format export for Digital Release
The Project Page Digital Release window now provides a list of available audio formats which can be exported at the same time — within the same render time! Each audio format keeps its own export settings. This means you can export your mastered EP/album as both a high-resolution, 24-bit/96kHz WAV and AAC for streaming at the same time!
6. Target Loudness on Digital Release
The Project Page Digital Release window now provides new Loudness options to let you set target values for loudness and true peak during export. A list of common target loudness presets is provided. Presets for every major streaming service are included — from Apple Music to Spotify to YouTube — which means no need to Google streaming service settings! You can also create custom Loudness settings and save them for future use.
7. New high-end dithering algorithm
Studio One 5.5 uses an exclusive, new, proprietary dithering algorithm with minimal conversion based audible noise, distortion and other artefacts while preserving low-level signals.
8. Drag and Drop MIDI files to Chord Track to extract chords
MIDI files can be dragged on to the Chord Track and their chords will be extracted. It works with any .MID file. This includes any chord packs or songs in Standard MIDI file format.
Studio One’s chord detection works with both Audio and Instrument Events.
9. Create a strum pattern by dragging notes
A strum pattern can be created manually by dragging note events in a selected chord while holding the [Cmd+Opt] or [Ctrl+Alt] keys. Strummed chords can be created with a single movement.
10. Ampire now optimized for fast preset switching on Show Page
Improved preset switching in Ampire with the emphasis on live performance. Changing between Ampire presets is now faster. It is optimized for use with the Show Page, allowing you to trigger your Ampire presets by MIDI pedalboard.
