Presonus today anounced the availability of their Studio One DAW version 4.5. It features a bunch of asked for features as well as additional ones they thought up all by themselves.
Probably the biggest one although nothing to look at is the CPU efficiency savings. Presnous quote up to 70% on Native Plugin Multi Instrument instances with around 50% for third party instruments like Kontakt.
Expanded input mixer and gain staging with added polarity switch and gain for every audio, instrument, FX and Bus channel
The console’s multi-channel I/O routing to single sources/destinations has been streamlined to a single click. We’ve also added an alternate “reverse sidechain” workflow, and copied plug-ins now retain their sidechain routing. Global pre-fader metering has been added to the console, as well as an RMS/Peak metering option for all channels.
