Activating Studio One
In most cases, Studio One will self-activate the first time you log in with your My.PreSonus account.
In the rare instance where you have multiple licenses of the same Studio One version registered to the same My.PreSonus account, you will need to select which license to activate.
If you have not already done so, launch Studio One and open the Studio One menu on the tool bar, then select Studio One Activation.
The next window, click on the drop down and select "Show My Existing Product Keys"
If you have more than one Studio One 3 Product Key in your account, select the one you want to register with this installation on your computer.
Once selected, click the button.
If you have enough activations out of your allowed 5 in your account, then Studio One will Activate and you should see this screen. (May look a little different on Mac)
If you have exceeded your maximum number of allowed activations, you may see this screen:
if you click OK, then Studio One will quit back to the desktop.
If you click OK, then a web browser will open to My.PreSonus.Com, click here to go to the Manage Your Activations Guide.
