I'm running Studio One 3 on the latest iMac and have the StudioLive CS18 and RM32 connected via a Motu AVB switch. When putting in effects on Studio One it already has presets to control any stock plug-ins via the CS18 and UCNET. However I can't figure out how to assign buttons for any third party plug-ins, or change the current presets for any of the stock plug-ins. Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

For mapping a controller (such as the CS18AI) in Studio One 3, you want to reference "Controller Map Object Types" on page 184 of the Studio One 3 manual.

You can find a downloadable copy of the Studio One 3 reference manual within your My PreSonus account.

2. Click on the "My Products" icon in the grey toolbar near the top of the page

4. Click on "Studio One 3 Artist/Professional"
5. Under the "Extra Downloads" section, click on the "Owners Manuals" text
