asked Nov 22, 2018 in Studio One 4 by mvanrossum (120 points)
I am 65 years old and bought Presonus Studio One 4 Artist last October with a headphones and a Presonus AudioBox USB96.
I also bought an M-Audio Oxygen 49 (2014) keyboard.
I installed Studio One on a Windows 10 Acer computer, proc 2,8 GH, 8GB memory.
Because I am retired, I want to make my music with Studio One more beautiful as a singersongswriter on guitar.
This succeeds as a beginner quite well, but simply of course.
I therefore have a few questions.
1. Is there a manual or a book for the description of Studio One 4 Artist? Preferably in Dutch.
   Where can I find the documentation for Studio One 4 Artist for a beginner?
2. Which software package can I buy best to load more VSTs in Artist?
3. I want to buy a heavier Windows 10 computer. Can you advise me?
   This is because when I have more than 7 or 8 tracks the processor limiting the audio processing, with all the audio interference as a result.
4. On the Presonus forum I see discussions about whether or not Studio One 4 is multi-threading.
   And the discussions of whether or not the Studio One 4 software can distribute the audio processing over the multiple processor cores.
   My question is therefore can Presonus Studio One 4 Artist deal with multi threading?
   And can the software also distribute audio processing across the multiple processor cores?
   So perhaps it is also important when I want to buy a new Windows 10 computer.
I hope you can help me further and increase the fun with Studio One.

Thanks for the answers in advance.

  1. No dutch manual available. Search youtube.com for videos instead. In your my.presonus.com account go to your S1 license. Under the topic "learn" you can see lots of videos explaining S1 
  2. Look for free 64-bit VST plugins first. Synth1 is a nice Synthesizer. https://www.kvraudio.com/plugins/windows/macosx/vst-plugins/vst3-plugins/audio-units/aax-plugins/rack-extensions/instruments/free/most-popular
  3. The faster and more cores the better
  4. S1 uses multiple cores and multiple threads
