Hi! I would be very happy if will be possibility  to change default location for mixdowns (instead of "Studio One/Song/.../Mixdown ). Every time I need to choose my own folder on the computer. This feature can save lot of time :) Thanks!

Best answer

Next to the file location in the MixDown menu is an icon with three dots, click this to specify new mixdown location. 

As an alternative you can bounce / export any selected audio to a file location of your choosing. 

In the Audio Menu you'll find these options.

I know about "3 dots icon". I'd like to make a default location, and do not click every time and choose it by "3 dots icon". I want Studio One every time export mixdowns to the location I want by default. Thanks!

I also want this feature! Exporting in Studio One is so annoying (especially when your mixdown is giving you headaches and every time I go to export it switches back to the default path!!!). Sorry this isn't an answer but it makes me want to rip my hair out. Hopefully Presonus sees this

Yeah - that would be great, I never, ever want Studio One to export my mixdown to Song Folder as it is default, and I have to change it manually every launch.. I'm sure that most users export their results to desktop or proper folders.

This feature would be perfect for me - that is being able to change the default location for mixdowns.

As of July 2023, they still haven't implemented something so basic. I always export to my desktop but have to choose location each and every time.

Capture does the same thing.  This is really annoying having to jump though extra hoops to export audio files.  Please fix this!
