asked Jul 11, 2020 in Studio One 5 by timcarkin (380 points)
This happened when I upgraded from Studio Pro 4 to 4.5, all of my Ampire XT Classic settings and amps disappeared, fortunately in Studio Pro 4.5 you could go to Studio One in the menu bar and then Studio One Installations, Legacy and Compatibility and you could find Ampire XT Classics there you just needed to check and install it. Unfortunately I just upgraded to Studio One 5 and the same problem only this time Ampire XT Classics is no longer under Legacy and Compatibility, I cant find it anywhere. Is there any way to get it back?

I had the same problem as well so I have been speaking to Presonus and you lose Ampire XT Classic. You still get Ampire but only one amp and one cabinet.  But honestly if you google free guitar amp vst there are some great free vst out there which are better than Ampire. Thank god Studio one 5 can accept 3rd party vst now.

I wish I had known this before I spent $50. I could've bought something else! I mistakenly thought there was something of substance included in the upgrade besides just new faceplates. I don't render my tracks because I'm constantly changing them. Sure, there are plenty of free amp plug-ins but, they aren't integrated into Ampire.
