Bug Report Studio One 5 as a sticker

asked Jul 14, 2020 in Studio One 5 by TheFlowerKings (1,120 points)

Is it just me finding this site incredibly hard to navigate? Searching "bug report studio one 5" gave result version 3 and 4. Perhaps there isn´t any bug report but in such case,  wouldn´t it be a great idea to make the latest release bug report as a sticker, up front easy to find?

I think Presonus are interest in getting feedback about what works or not.... But when things are so hard navigating the right form I tend to back my interest.

Anyway. Studio One 5 is very un-stable when editing midi data both in the pianoroll as well as tweaking knobs on an external hardware. The result is crash to desktop. This behavour is the same for software plug-ins like Kontakt....

I´m running Imac i9, Apollo x8 thunderbolt 3, Moog One, Rev2, Nordlead 4 and some Elektron stuff. (

I reported a bug here also, but it cannot be found by searching.


My bug report:

While Studio One is playing, if I cut the audio clip or change the fade of the audio clip, I would hear click sound.

While Studio One is playing, I right-click the audio clip and choose to edit it in Melodyne, Studio One crashed, but this does not happen always, but for a few times.

And the issues above never happened in Studio One 4.

I have extreme issues with V5
My main Problems are:
1) I get random  CPU Spikes with Pro EQ  (2-3% the suddenly 20-30% usage) that create dropouts
2) Softube tape (MixFX): I am running 9 vocal tracks thru a folder-buss and get 100% CPU usage and playback brakes completely
3)  no GUI on  3rd Party Plugins :  randomly plugins open with no GUI. After restarting S1 it works for a while... the suddenly no GUI again!
4) Console GUI breaks: the  mixer GUI breaks suddenly (weird triangular shapes), then S1 freezes or dies!)

I get around 30% more cpu usage with constant random spikes compared to V4.6

right now I'm going back to V4.6 and my PT10 HD2 System i was hoping to send to retirement...

The thing is that it's acceptable to have bugs in a complex software, but reporting an issue shouldn't be an issue itself.
