I am using Ubuntu Studio, but unfortunately I cannot install PreSonus Studio One on my computer. It is a software that I use in my music tech class. Please develop versions for Linux ASAP!!!

Hi Presonus.

I am in full support of this. I am a pro mixing engineer who switched from Logic and Pro Tools almost 7 years ago now (you guys also follow me on all my social media lol), Studio One pro has been my bread and butter for so long now mixing countless records in the UK. I am now at the point where I need to move over to a Linux operating system now for number of reasons. But the one thing stopping me is the fact that Studio One isn't yet available. Please guys, we really need this to happen. 

Another possibility is to merge with an already established Linux DAW that can easily adapt Studio One's features and engine, like Ardour. As Linux is an open-source system I can understand there might be some challenges and conflicts, but I would like to assure you I myself would be more than willing to pay an extra subscription/surcharge/donation to support a Linux release of Studio One, and I know there are many others who would also agree to do so. As a junior software developer and professional audio engineer with over 15 years experience,  I would also be more than happy to share my expertise and contribute funds to help make this happen.

Someone on this post also mentioned about presonus device driver support for Linux too, This is also a very much needed release so we can use more Presonus audio interfaces and controllers with Linux with full support.

Thank you.

The PreSonus sound card already works in Linux, rock solid, it is just the Studio One software that is missing, and since that is already on MacOS (which is based on FreeBSD Linux), that is a short hop and skip and Studio One should run (if it does not do already with a tweak or two, most likely license management).

I think it would be a GREAT move for PreSonus to target the Linux platform, as that would open up the world of computing power for users, and a whole new market for PreSonus with NO competiors.  NOTE: Not all Linux software is freeware.

Hi Presonus.

I would also love a version for Linux. I am currently using LinuxMint. But as I can't use Studio One on this computer I also have a Windows10 computer with Studio One 4 Professional installed.

Thank you for the best DAW ever.

Greetings Lars

Look guys! Your software rocks but it would rock even more if it was available for more platforms than just Win and Mac. More and more people switch to Linux (including myself). The only thing that keeps me with unfortunate Windows is Studio One. Yes I also have Reaper that run excellent in Linux but I want to have native DAW to support my Presonus hardware. Don't you guys see the benefits of Linux yet?

Please, please please. I would be willing to pay extra dollars to have it avaiable on Linux !!!

I could also use a Linux version. Switched to Manjaro recently to get away from Windows and all the telemetry cack they bundle in with it. I'd rather not use an OS that snoops and records data from my every move.
