tjarkobusink wroteJust posted this on FB, but maybe this is a good place to share this...former Cakewalk refugee as well. .......Sonar Platinum > PreSonus S1 project migration, .........

There is an alternative method in Answers by simply using drag and drop.
I have just created Audio Stems and imported the stems in the past.

Improving Sessions data is a top ranking FR on Answers. ( although everyone is talking about there own DAW)

It might be a good idea to Start a new Thread with how to Export/Import to S1
and come up with 3-4 variation ot preserve as little or as much as possible.

jpettit wroteNot at my system but I believe you can also right mouse click the bus and click add automation track

Hi jpettit :)

When I right mouse click on a buss I do not see this option.

No worries though... I'm happy with my recent discoveries :D

cheers, and thanks,



What I have just found out, though, is if you right click on a send fader on a buss, or anything like that in the Console view then it brings up a context menu which gives you the option to edit or remove automation for that fader. A new Buss track then appears in Track view.

josalbertofuentespozo wroteHi guys! thank you for all the kindness and warm welcome to us, just want to share something, i use a Novation Launchkey 61 as a HUI controller, when i change between channel groups in the mixer (to control faders, knobs and that kind of stuff), i don't have a visual cue on the mixer, i don't know where i am, if some of you ex Sonarians use HUI MIDI controllers like me, you can open a little window on the upper left of S1, before the arrow and range tool. There you can choose your controller (in my case HUI) then a window will appear giving you visual feedback about the actual channel group you are working on.

I wish that feedback could be on the mixer itself like SONAR but no big deal, maybe in future updates could be better integrated on the mixer.

Hope my little discover help a new S1 explorer like me.



What mixer are you using? There is the ability to send controller feedback to some controllers.

No mixer here just using my Novation Launchkey 61 MIDI controller to operate the faders and knobs in HUI mode, in SONAR you have a visual feedback on the group you are working as you can see on the image (you can spot on red rectangles the feature i've been talking about at the bottom of the in red color), that's the only thing i miss working on S1 but i will get used to it.


Thank you for your interest

Yes, that works for anything that moves or toggles on the Studio One UI that can be automated (I.e., not the solo button for example), faders, knobs, buttons, etc, and also with VST3 plugins, right click "Edit" to create a new envelope or to expose an existing envelope for editing, or "Remove" to directly delete one.

For plugins, It doesn't work (at least not for me) with VST2 and maybe not with AU, not sure..

I am another Sonar refugee or orphan.
I am a hard headed person and I wanted to jump into S1 and see what I could figure out
before referring to any videos. I was totally amazed at what all was just plain and simple to figure out. After a few days I had a "song" completed, mixed and ready to go.
Then I watched a few videos to pick up some extras. I know there is plenty that I am overlooking and am amazed at the plethora of videos out there to help me. I feel that I already have a firm grasp on S1 and am eagerly anticipating what all I can learn. Well pleased with S1 for sure.
I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome and for the extra work all of you did to help when we landed here.
Again, thank you and I see a bright future for me and S1.

Hello All... I just finished installing Studio One 3 and I'm trying to get it to recognize my Melodyne Studio.. So far I am lost... I had it integrated in my Sonar but I don't have a clue what I need to do with Studio One... Is there anyone out there that can help???

Select an audio clip and hit Ctl+M (Audio > Edit With Melodyne) and see what happens. It should just work.

I mean, it's still just a third party plugin. The integration is supported so it should just work without doing anything if Melodyne is installed on your system.

I've been using S1 V3 since the day Cake made their announcement. Very comfortable with the program and it has some great features. I also have a faderport 8 on the way, and to me...and wonder why it isn't as important to others... but having a dedicated hardware controller as in depth as the faderport is a HUGE bonus. Sonar had the Mackie control, etc....but the faderport 8, integrated with Studio One, seems leagues ahead... at least from watching all the YouTubes. That was something I felt really lacking with Sonar.
I miss Sonar's little track icons...but actually when they first came out, I thought they were a tad goofy...but found it was really quick to see tracks, vs squinting your eyes to see track numbers....even when using custom colors.
The ARA has been flawless, if not much better in Studio One...and having Editor 4 has allowed some really nice capabilities..... creating tempo maps...etc. Stuff you could do in Sonar, but it seems to be best in Studio One.

Yep...eager to get my Faderport 8 and hook up my punch in pedal.

Lastly...I feel Studio One is geared more towards a musician and work flow and such is more logical. Sonar on the other hand seemed to be a deeper software, but it had its' price being so and sometimes it seemed "too much" ... lots of bells and whistles. Studio One seems to cut to the chase and let you use it more like a "recording studio" and knock stuff out. If you're editing 100 track MIDI instruments, for classical scoring....eh.. Sonar will do that, but I'm just editing notes and velocities for the most part...probably like 95% of most MIDI users.
