PreSonus® is shipping Studio One® 5 Professional version 5.2, the second feature update to its award-winning digital audio workstation software for macOS® and Windows®. Version 5.2 adds more than 30 new features and improvements, many of which are based on user requests, including major new features for composers and performers.

The next level in articulation support, Studio One 5.2’s new Sound Variations can handle even the most complex virtual instruments and orchestral libraries that are essential for modern composers. The core of the new Sound Variations system is a powerful, yet easy to use mapping editor that provides tools for managing complex articulation maps. Each Sound Variation can be customized with its own name and color and can be dragged-and-dropped in any order and placed into custom folders. Sound Variations can be triggered by key switches, as well as from remote commands, including hardware controllers, keyboard shortcuts, custom macros, and more. Use the Paint Tool to enter Sound Variations directly into the associated automation lane inside the Note Editor or select any number of notes and assign a Sound Variation from a convenient right-click popup menu. There’s much more! A new API allows third-party developers to enable their VST2 and VST3 instruments’ articulations to be queried by Studio One so that Sound Variation maps are automatically generated. Currently, all Synchron-enabled Vienna Symphonic Instruments, as well as instruments from UJAM fully support dynamic Sound Variations mapping with Studio One.
