1. Create a PreSonus User Account on our website:

2. Check your email inbox for a Registration email from us. Click on the "User Account Activation" link in that message. NOTE: if you don't see any emails from in your Inbox, check your SPAM or Junk Mail folder(s). You must activate your user account before you will be able to access the user account.

3. Click on "Register New Software" (link is in blue), a field option will appear below the link, and enter the 28-Digit Product Key from the inner trifold panel of the Studio One disc case for those who purchased a hardware device of ours that Studio One software came bundled with, or for customers who purchased an online copy of Studio One, check your email receipt for the 28-Digit Product Key. For some in-store purchases, there are various Dealers who will provide the 28-Digit Product Key on the sales receipt at the point-of-sale.

4. The 28-Digit Product Key will appear in the following format: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (where "X" can be either a letter or number).

NOTE: There are no zero's (0) or one's (1) in Studio One Product Keys. If you encounter a digit that resembles either, it will be a lower-case "O" (Oscar) or a lower-case "L" (Lima). Entering a zero (0) or one (1) or not including the dashes (-) after every 4th digit will yield an error message from the registration server stating: "Product Key Invalid".

5. Once you have correctly entered the 28-Digit Product Key and clicked on "Register" to redeem this registration, the newly registered software should then show up in the list below. Then click on the link entitled "see more details". The installer for your Operating System should be the first button available. Alternately you can click on the Installers tab below to view all the available installers available for the version of software you have just registered.

Q: Is my PreSonus software compatible with Mac OS X 10.X Yosemite Beta?

A: Yosemite is a new OSX from Apple, that is currently in its Beta Phase. This is not a qualified OS nor the final and official release of Apple's new OSX 10.10 Yosemite operating system. As their OSX Beta progresses, changes will be made to their Beta builds along the way. Much like Apple is testing this new OS, Presonus Developers are also working with the Beta OS to get as clear of an idea as to what Apple may release when they are ready to finally launch Yosemite to the public as an qualified commercial version of their latest OS. Presonus Audio does not support OSs that are not official releases and or still in their Beta phases.

**Please note: Should you be part of Apple's open public Beta, the versions shared to the public (prior to the actual commercial release) do not fully reflect the final version that is actually approved for commercial usage. Presonus, like other audio companies, does everything in their power to prepare for the launch of new OSs. However, Apple does keep some secrets to themselves all the way up until the day of launch. Please keep in mind that there may be a short grace period, post new OS launch that is necessary to qualify our hardware, software and drivers to ensure what is compatible and what drivers may need to be updated to run properly with this new OS.

Will you get a call back from a voice mail left?

- Do not expect a call back for a voice mail left in our support voice mail system. Your provided phone number is used to help us verify your account information as we work to get back to you a quickly as possible.

The Tech Support voice mail system is for customers that have waited for 30 minutes on hold for assistance. Your issue is important to us. As we offer free tech support for registered users, we do experience high call volumes at different times of the day/week and around holidays too.  In the voice mail we ask that customers leave their name, their account email address, product and a brief description of their issue. An email will then be transcribed from the voice mail and then issued to a support agent for assistance with your issue. At this point an agent will contact you via email and provide assistance through the email you left with us. This allows us to respond and assist everyone with their questions and issues as quickly as possible. It is very important that you clearly answer all questions and provide all requested information. Your shared information is kept confidential and will only be used to help resolve your support request.

*Please note: If it is an issue with a product key, please include all product keys and as much information as you can about the issue. It may be necessary that we request copies of receipts and or a bill of sale to help us verify several things during the support process.


[IMPORTANT NOTE]: When leaving a voice mail with tech support, it is very important that you speak your email address slowly and spell it in the voice mail so the agent transcribing your email will get it right for you and issue the support ticket to the right account and then in turn make sure it is also routed to the proper agent that will be fielding your support inquiry. If you do not leave an email in your voice mail message we will not be able to contact you via email and the ticket created will be closed. So it is very important to get the email in your voice mail spelled correctly as well. 

*Please note: many issues can be resolved by providing you with a knowledge base article and/or specific page numbers/section listings from our manuals via an email that addresses your issue. Depending on the nature of the issue, it may be determined after gathering a specific level of data from you, in some cases, that a phone call may be necessary. This is on a case by case basis after we have requested specific information from you and based on the provided information have made the determination that we need to make phone contact to resolve your issue. We then would schedule time to speak with you.
