Content Installation

Studio One comes with many audio loops and instruments that are organized into Sound Sets, as well as demo songs and tutorial videos. The number of Sound Sets available for installation depends on the version of Studio One you have installed (Artist or Professional). To install the Sound Sets and demo/tutorial material, launch Studio One and open the Studio One/Studio One Installation menu.

In the Install From menu, you can choose to download all selected content from your PreSonus Account, or navigate to downloaded content in your file system (or a provided USB stick). If you wish to install any further content at a later time, you can always return to Studio One/Studio One Installation Menu from within Studio One to do so.


By default, all packages included with your version of Studio One should be selected for installation. In the event they are not selected, you can select them yourself.


You can also set the Install To location to any desired location on your computer, then click on [Install].
