Updating Studio One 4

Updating Studio One is a simple process that can be done from the Studio One contextual menu under the HELP menu or by using your computer’s Web browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.).

From within the Studio One Software:

Click on the "Help" tab in Studio One, in the drop down menu select the option "Check for updates".

This will open an internet browser and Studio One will use the username and password set in your online activation section to communicate with the PreSonus user account and access that account to initiate the download needed to update the software. 

Important Notes: If the built in updater is not working for any reason, use the steps outlined below to log into your user account and download the installer file directly from your user account.

Unlike certain other programs, Studio One is not updated via a “patch”; the new version simply replaces the previous version, resulting in an update. This will not affect your settings, songs, or files in any way. We recommend updating Studio One regularly as new versions come out, as this will improve the performance of the software, as well as adding new features.


Follow the steps below to download and install the latest version of Studio One from your user account:


Shut Studio One down. Studio One cannot be running while you perform the update.

  1. Locate the [Products] menu tab. Click this button to view your registered product lists.
  2. Select the "Software" button in your user account to view your registered software listings. 
  3. Press the "Direct Download" button to start the Studio One download for your operating system. 
  4. Clicking either the product name, or the arroewe.jpg arrow, will open a new page that has your Studio One download listings.  



Studio One downloads page:



Click [Download Installer] to download Studio One:

  • Windows browsers will show the Windows installer.


  • macOS browsers will show the macOS installer. 



Once downloaded, install the application and it will update Studio One to the latest version. 



If you are downloading from a different computer (i.e. Mac vs PC) than the one on which you plan to Install Studio One, and need an installer for a different operating system, please click on [Show All Systems] to access the correct download.



Note: The Studio One installer is the same for all versions: PRIME. Artist, and Professional. You can download the Studio One program from any of your Studio One products and achieve the same update without a loss of features. The version of Studio One installed on your computer is determined by the product key that you activated, not the file that you installed.
