PreSonus has released the first maintenance update for Studio One Pro and Studio One Artist, the groundbreaking music-creation and production applications for Mac OS X and Windows. The new version 1.0.1 provides 10 new features and fixes an assortment of issues.
New features include the abilities to: snap on/off using a new key command, reset the entire event volume curve using a key command, fine-adjust the event volume using either a key command or by holding Shift and dragging with the mouse, and select notes by pitch on the keyboard in the Music Editor. In addition, the active menu item now is highlighted, there is a new MIDI Machine Control receiver in the External Devices list (PreSonus/MMC), Audio Event gain can now go up to +24 dB, the maximum tempo range has been increased to 400 bpm, and link icons have been added to the news feed on the Start page.
More than 50 issues in version 1.0 have been fixed in version 1.0.1. Mac OS X fixes include crash-on-quit in Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), Audio Units automation problems, and Core Audio not starting on some systems. Fixes in the Windows version address such problems as VST plug-ins not finding their DLLs (e.g., Line 6 PodFarm or E-mu X3) and a flickering timeline cursor in Windows 7. The update also fixes a variety of general problems, such as hanging notes in the PreSonus Mojito virtual instrument, a crossfade issue with contiguous events, MIDI timing errors, and several other MIDI-related issues.
