The following was compiled by a fellow member themuzic (aka Johnny Geib). Johhny also runs the Home Studio Trainer website (, providing one/one training for Studio One and other presonus products.

This list should be considered "Un-Official", as it was not compiled by Presonus directly. There may/may not be features not listed here. We will try our best to keep this updated as things are added/deleted from the feature set. I am also attaching a text doc of the same listing for download.

Faders control DAW faders
Busses are in “Mix Masters”
