A few weeks ago we asked the Studio One community to let us know what they thought should be in the next version of Studio One, expected sometime 2018, you can read the Studio One 4 post here.
The article garnered a record number of comments, we have listed them below so you can see the kind of things Studio One users are hoping to see in Studio One 4.
PreSonus, the makers of Studio One, has announced the Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces.
Created with the kind support of Universal Audio, Russ shows how to add depth to a vocal and piano track. He shows how to add space without it sounding like it is in a gymnasium.
Rick from PreSonus has created this excellent video giving an extended sneak peek of the upcoming StudioLive Series III DAW Mode, currently in beta testing.
Faderport 8 can work in native, HUI and MCU mode but lots of software does not support any of those protocols, I use Final Cut Pro X for example and I have wished I could use Faderport to control Final Cut Pro - well with a simple app it's now possible to control any app you like.
There may be a number of reasons for the high percentage of Windows users, one of them must inevitably be the support that PreSonus give to Windows users, after all, there's a lot to be said for the expression 'you reap where you sow.'
Ray Tantzen Senior Product Manager at PreSonus Audio Electronics has given an update on the StudioLive Series III Studio One DAW Control Update.
Writing on the Presonus StudioLive Mixer Users Facebook group he said;
PHASIS is a free VST/AU/AAX Phaser plug-in from Native Instruments.
PHASIS is a new take on the concept with additional features that have been carefully chosen to allow for more sophisticated and extreme sounds than possible with common phasers, while staying true to the ease of use and clarity associated with these devices.
Russ asks if the new locked down iMac Pro is bad news or just a lot of fuss about nothing.

If your loved ones are asking you for stocking filler ideas for Christmas then you may have missed this list we compiled from members of the community over the years. It has some great books on their including some of our favourites.
A few weeks ago we asked the community to tell us how many microphones they own. It was really out of curiosity, thinking that in most cases the average number would be quite low, with many perhaps owning one or two microphones, in fact, we are surprised by the actual average.
Studio One users, your free Friday plug-in is the GK Amp 2 LE from Audified.
A scaled down but no less impressive version of the GK Amplification 2 Pro Bass Modelling plug in.
e-instruments, the company behind iconic instruments like Session Horns, Session Strings and Session Key, has released Session Keys Upright, described by them as 'a different kind of piano' and the claim may well be justified.

Last month we gave 3 people a chance to win the fantastic Wavesfactory Mercury piano, a faithful rendition of the Freddie Mercury piano at Metropolis studios in London.
A few week ago in a blog post on Studio One Expert, Russ Hughes shared why he loved working with Studio One. At the end of the article, we asked other Studio One users to comment.
Russ said; "There are many great features in Studio One that make it a powerful DAW, it's a list as long as your arm, but I love Studio One mainly for that one reason, it helps me get on with being creative without getting in the way."
There were many comments on the story we thought we should share some of them, here is a selection of the responses.
Want another free VU meter to sit alongside the one from PreSonus? We expect most of you to have the PreSonus VU meter, but it would be amiss of us not to tell you about this.
In this free video tutorial with the support of our good friends at Waves, Marcus Huyskens takes a look at using Waves CLA MixDown on the Mix Buss to quickly master a Cue.
We came across this excellent video showing how a guy took a 2008 Mac Pro and with used part from eBay and just $1500 Canadian Dollar, including the cost of the Mac, turned it into a 12 Core 2017 Mac Pro, with benchmarks to prove it.
The video is great it gives reasons for choosing the part and then how to fit each new component in detail.
It's long but well worth watching for those who want to breathe new life into their old Mac Pro.
In this short video, Russ shows a cool trick for removing click bleed from tracks.
