Updating Studio One is a simple process that can be done from either the Studio One HELP menu, or by using your computer’s Web browser (Microsoft Edge, Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.).
From within the Studio One Software:
Click on the [Help] menu in Studio One, in the drop down menu select the option [Check for updates].
This will open a pop up window inside Studio One and automatically download/install the update.
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.
Manually Update Studio One

Studio One downloads page.
Click [Download Installer] to download Studio One.
- Windows browsers will show the Windows installer. Run the downloaded installer, and it will overwrite the previous build of Studio One, effectively updating it to the latest version.
- macOS browsers will show the macOS installer. Launch the downloaded installer, and drag it to Applications. It will give you the choice to overwrite the previous version or replace the previous version. That would be your choice.
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 installers for Windows and macOS.
Note: the Studio One installer is the same for all versions: (PRIME, Artist, Professional, and Studio One+). 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 it with, not the file that you installed.
