PreSonus Studio One 3 – Version History


  • Arrow left/right: moves a range selection on a layer to the previous/next area, determined by the event ranges on the main track.
  • Shift+Arrow left/right: extend a range selection
  • when another layer of a track is selected (Arrow up/down or click on layer track controls), an existing range selection is moved to the previous/next layer.
  • Layer Solo:
  • when a layer is selected, the Solo command (“S”) now solos the layer (notthe track).
  • the existing option “Solo follows Selection” now also applies when selecting another layer.
  • Layer Colors:
  • Layers can now have (optional) colors, that can be chosen in the layer trackcontrols
  • auto coloring also applies to new layers (“Add/Duplicate Layer”)
  • similar to event colors, the layer color can be undefined. The color of an event on a layer is determined in this order:
  • 1. Event color (as before)
  • 2. Layer color
  • 3. Track color (as before)
  • Range Tool:
  • previously, the “Quick Swipe” comping function was always used on layers, regardless of the selected tool (except the listen tool)
  • now the Range tool can be used to select ranges on layers
  • a range can also be selected with a single click on a layer (selects the eventrange from the main track). This also works with the Arrow tool.
  • switching content on the main track:
  • when an event on the track contains material copied from a layer, the context menu of that event will have a sub menu “Select Layer Content”, listing all layers that also contain material in the event range.
  • selecting a layer from the menu replaces the event on the track
  • switching can also be done quickly with Alt+Mousewheel (next/previouslayer)

• Layer / Event naming:

  • in the track controls of a layer, the track name is shown below the layer
  • the generic default layer names (“Layer 1”, etc.) are now assigned permanently, so they don’t change anymore when reordering layers (which caused a lot of confusion)
  • when promoting layer material to the track, events now get the layer name; if the layer has no real name, the event name is “trackName layerNumber”

PreSonus Studio One 3 – Version History


• when recording, the name of the active layer is used in the event name: “trackName layerName” or “trackName layerNumber” plus a running index

  • Various:
    • new “Expand Layers” button on track controls (shown when track has morethan 1 layer)
    • when a range is selected on a layer, a button for the “Copy Ranges to Track” Command” appears on the layer’s track controls
    • duplicating a layer now expands the track to show the new layer
  • Extended tab-to-transient
    • Tab: move cursor to next transient (as before; discards existing range selection).
    • Shift+Tab: create / enlarge a range selection from cursor to next transient
    • Cmd+BackSpace: move cursor to previous transient
    • Shift+Cmd+BackSpace: shorten range selection (end) to previous transient
    • all these commands search for transients on the selected track(s).
    • when used during playback, a separate “edit cursor” allows navigating through transients, independently of the play cursor position.
  • New transport options
    • context menu on transport buttons
    • consolidated “Options” in “Transport” menu
  • New Play Start Marker
    • decouples playback position from edit selection (called “Dynamic Transport Mode” in ProTools)
