Many of us in the music production world rejoiced when it was announced that Reason 11 would be making its stack of instruments available for use in other DAWs, and PreSonus has seemingly taken note of that. If you’re an owner of a Studio One license, you can use the newly released PreSonus Hub to install Studio One’s effects plug-ins for use in your other DAWs. The plug-ins included in PreSonus Hub’s collection are Ampire, Channel Strip Collection, Fat Channel XT & Fat Channel XT Add-ons, Studio Magic and VU Meter.
Ampire is an impressive collection of amp and pedalboard models, with recent additions in the newest Studio One update. Channel Strip Collection features two State Space modelled plug-ins of classic PreSonus hardware channel strips, the RC 500 and VT1. Fat Channel XT is a full channel strip plug-in, with a collection of compressors and EQ add-ons available. Studio Magic is packed with effects from other developers, such as iZotope’s Neutron Elements, UJAM Virtual Drummer 2 PHAT and more. Finally, VU Meter is a simple referencing plug-in that will offer you analogue style VU meters and LED segment style peak meters.
Studio One 4 Professional users will have immediate access to Fat Channel XT and Ampire, with the ability to purchase extra through the PreSonus store. You can then install available plug-ins through the PreSonus Hub. The video below will give you a full video walkthrough of how to get the effects downloaded.
