asked Dec 8, 2018 in Studio One 3 by saskamodiejones (230 points)
Is there any chance that Presonus makes waves in the industry by supporting Linux natively in 2019? I for one am migrating over from Windows and would love to take Studio ONE with me. I think if Presonus followed BlackMagic's example they would lock up the market before the tides change. Heed my words: CREATIVES WANT TO LEAVE WINDOWS. The groundswell behind this sentiment is REAL.

With linux automation capabilities and agility any creative tool would be 1000% efficient comparing to the Windows.

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

If Studio One 4.6 worked native on Linux with all the Presonus plug-ins, I could probably work exclusively with Studio One. I might keep a Win or Mac laptop to run some other VSTs. It would be an absolute dream to work in Linux with Studio One as main DAW. @Presonus - please take the lead!  :)
