The workflow you want

Studio One’s fluid single-screen workflow, creative composition tools, and powerful instruments and effects make it the ideal DAW for getting ideas down and for seeing them through, the way you want to.

Chord Track

Studio One intelligently detects chords in your audio or MIDI tracks and extracts them, then determines the possible chord progressions and guides them for any track you wish. Substitute complex chords for simple chords, simple chords for complex ones, or have old parts follow a new chord structure.

SampleOne XT

Capture instruments, vocals, objects, or anything nearby with the touch of a button. Slice longer audio automatically or manually, stretch timing to match tempos, and add effects. Reverse, re-pitch, or otherwise re-imagine your recorded sounds any way you wish.


Studio One’s pattern editor takes the often too-repetitive and mechanical step-by-step instrument sequencer and humanizes it. This allows you to make your sequences different lengths, expand and compress your patterns, determine the chance that some notes will play, and more. Patterns integrates with Impact XT, so you can see how your drums and melodic parts interact.

Impact XT

Impact XT is part drum machine, part polyrhythmic playground, and goes beyond any traditional rhythm sequencer setup. Its performance and composition-oriented features, like real-time loop stretching, choke groups, beat quantization, and seamless integration with Patterns, make building complex, evolving beats both easy and enthralling.

Fine-tune with Melodyne

Studio One Professional now includes Melodyne Essentials, an industry-leading pitch-correction plugin. It’s fully integrated with the DAW, so you can quickly tune vocals and get pro-level pitch-correction without transferring audio or opening a separate plugin.

Extra extras


When I opened up Studio One, it was extremely intuitive…I was able to recreate my entire Logic tracking template in Studio One without googling a thing.

It’s a great DAW for musicians like me because I can effortlessly flow from initial track idea to finished master without it getting in the way of my creativity.
