If you haven’t taken a look, PreSonus has released a new version of Studio One today. Along with the release of version 5, PreSonus introduces Sphere Global Community, a whole new ecosystem for the Studio One brand. While you still have the option to buy Studio One outright at the same price it’s always been, now you can choose to get everything they have to offer at a monthly rate. While some of you are cringing at the thought of another monthly bill, take a look at what they’re offering before you dismiss this service. I have to admit, they’ve made this one of the most tempting subscription services I’ve seen yet.
PreSonus® has launched PreSonus Sphere, a global community of creative enthusiasts and respected professionals brought together by and for the love of music-making. In addition to gaining access to an extensive library of creative software tools, PreSonus Sphere members get Cloud collaboration tools and storage, chat with Studio One® and Notion® experts from around the globe, and access to exclusive promotions, training, and events, with much more added each month—all for a low monthly or annual membership.
PreSonus Sphere membership benefits include licenses for the complete collection of PreSonus’ award-winning software solutions for recording, mixing, scoring, and producing, including Studio One Professional and Notion, plus over 100 libraries of samples, effects, and loops, including the complete Spark Collection sample and loop libraries and Tom Brechtlein Drums. Members also get every plug-in and Studio One Add-on that PreSonus makes, including Ampire, Channel Strip Collection, CTC-1 Pro Console Shaper, Fat Channel XT, Presence XT Editor, and much more.
But PreSonus Sphere is far more than a huge toolbox; it is first and foremost a creative community. Modern musicians work with talented people from all over the world, and PreSonus Sphere makes it easy to share projects with other members using your PreSonus Sphere workspace. A live chat lets members communicate in real time with their global production teams to make sure everyone’s on the same page and striving toward the same goal.
Sphere membership includes 30 GB of cloud storage for backups, stems, collaboration, and more. When you need more space, PreSonus Sphere lets you upgrade to 100 GB of cloud storage space for $3.99/mo. PreSonus Exchange has always been a great way for Studio One users to share presets, loops, and more; PreSonus Sphere users now have access to a new exclusive portal loaded with custom-designed tools and curated content by featured PreSonus artists.
PreSonus Sphere members will be invited to exclusive events and training sessions where they’ll meet like-minded Sphere users and expand their collaboration networks. Need a quick production tip or workflow trick? In addition to the growing Exchange community and active user groups, PreSonus has gathered Studio One power users from around the globe to answer questions in members-only chats.
Each month PreSonus Sphere members can expect something new, whether it’s exclusive content or a special surprise gift to thank them for being members—and there are no additional upgrade costs or hidden fees. PreSonus has also teamed up with partners to give PreSonus Sphere members exclusive offers throughout the year.
PreSonus Sphere memberships are available for $14.95 U.S. per month or $164.95 per year. For more information about PreSonus Sphere, visit www.presonus.com/sphere.
