Creating a New MyPreSonus Account

You must create a PreSonus Account in order to install and activate the software for use on your system(s).

If you bought Studio One or from our website or purchased and registered a PreSonus Hardware product you already have a My.PreSonus user account. If you do not yet have a My.PreSonus user account, you'll want to create one.

Beyond being a requirement to download and activate the latest version of Studio One 4, there are many benefits to creating a My.PreSonus account including easy access to additional documentation and other content files, access to the user forums, latest tips product videos and the ability to easily create a technical support ticket.

To create a user account, go to http://my.presonus.comOn that web page, click "Create My.Presonus Account."


The next page that loads is the My.Presonus registration "Sign Up" page. 

Fill out the provided registration form. Then click "Create My.Presonus Account" to create your new account.


Once you create your account, a verification email from PreSonus is automatically sent to the email address you provided. Click on the link in the email to activate your account. You are now ready to download and install Studio One.

If your computer is not connected to the internet, you can still download and activate Studio One by using a different computer that does have internet access, as described on the Studio One 4 Offline Activation page.
