Studio One as Rewire Slave

asked Nov 25, 2016 in Studio One Feature Requests by monoxide works (1,750 points)
As of latest Studio One 3.3 update (Built on Sep 2016), Studio One still only acts as Master when in Rewire mode. Would it be possible to also have the option to make Studio One a Rewire Slave?

In my case, I would like to use Ableton Live as my Rewire Master. Reason being is that native control surfaces for Live (eg. Akai APC40, Ableton Push) are rendered useless when in Rewire Slave. I would use Ableton Live as a composition tool and maybe also an arrangement tool. But then easily move that over via resampling or bouncing stems into Studio One for final mixing (and of course maybe arrangement tweaks via Scratch Pads).

Studio One can only be the Master when using Re-Wire.

Is there any plan to add this feature in a near future? I would like to be able to use Ableton Push via Live

Studio One 4 as Rewire Slave

This issue is still pertinent; and, in S1 version 4 Professional, the developers are projecting Studio One as the 'Dominant Master'. Apparently believing that their product is master over all it controls is rather absurd because, offering a rewire flexibility in Studio One v4 would surely provide a fertile cross pollination between daws, opening-up cross-grade opportunities for Presonus.

Moreover, full rewire capability - Host AND Device - will provide S1 users with more flexibility. I for one would be thankful for it.

Now we're in version 4.1 and still no flexibility?

Ableton can act as slave or master for rewiring, Reaper, Sonar, Fruity Loops and Reason can do that to.

When will Studio one be so flexible that it can be master and slave?

This could be a reason for people not to buy and use Studio One beside another daw.

THIS is what I'm looking for!
I already filed a support request for this, they pointed me towards this forum.
It is much needed and I know for many people, this is something they'd love to have.

Currently I'm using LoopBe30 as a workaround, but that has limitations like only being able to address 64 MIDI channels because Notion can only handle 4 external MIDI devices, having 16 channels each.

That gives limitations like this:

With a full orchestral template, you might need more than just the 64 channels available and you can't really create a full orchestral template AND have spare channels for instruments you don't use very often.

Presonus support: Could you please check my current requests on this and about this?
