[2c] Studio One 4 : Software Install Studio One 4 (PC)


Please note the difference between downloading and installing a Studio One versions build and activating Studio One to unlock the core content that is included in a versions installed build. When you download and install Studio One from any source, you are installing the build of that version; 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1.0, 4.2.3, 4.3.2, etc... In order to unlock the core content for your registered version; Demo, Artist, Professional, you must activate the installed build using the 28 digit product code or the offline 16 digit product key depending on your type of activation. The process of activation will then release the content for the registered version within Studio One once properly activated.

* Below you will find instructions on downloading and installing Studio One from your user account. The online and offline activation process is linked below this outline at the bottom of this knowledge base article. 

* The build located for download in your user account will always be the latest build available for download for that registered version. 


1. If you are not already logged into your PreSonus user account, log into your account:


2. Locate the My Products tab at the upper right hand of the user section of your account once logged in.

Click this button to view your registered product lists.


3. Locate the My Software button in your user account and click that button to view your registered software listings. 


4. Once you have located the listing of your registered software, click on the link that says "View More Details" to view the installers for your system. 

The website will intuitively read the system you are connecting to the website account with and offer the installer for that system. Windows users will see a 64 bit bit installer, whereas MAC users will see a MAC OS X installer. 



Note: Studio One 4 is only compatible with 64-bit operating systems. There is no longer a 32-bit version.
