The votes from this should be combined with http://answers.presonus.com/18168/studio-one-native-version-for-linux-not-wine?show=18168#q18168 which is essentially the same question.

A big issue here would be feature parity between the platforms. For instance, the zplane time and pitch shifting software isn't available for Linux and a replacement would be needed to be found, at the cost of poorer time stretching and pitch shifting results. I'm sure there are other examples which stand in the way of this becoming a reality, not to mention the fact if it's worth it from PreSonus's perspective.

Haven't used that specific software, so idea what it's really doing. But if it's just about some waveform transformation like pitching, that really shouldn't be the big deal (and there're several free libraries for that).

Unfortunately, they don't tell us the reasons, so we (the FOSS community) can't offer any help.

PreSonus AudioBox USB96  works like a charm on openSUSE 12.1

  1. don't install any presonus software
  2. plug it in
  3. can now select it as input/output in lots of authoring software:
    • Audacity
    • Kdenlive
    • ScreenRecorder
...
