Ok this is combined question regarding Faderport v2 which includes Studio One Artist. I'm looking for a DAW controller and noticed that Faderport includes a Studio One Artist full version. So my questions are:

- What Studio One Artist version is included - I predict it is v5 at the moment?

- VST plugin support is not included by default if i understood right. I red that there's a need for add on which cost around 70 eur?

- 32 bit VST plugin support. No more support for running in 32 bit mode?

- It seems that there's option to upgrade from Artist to Pro for a lower upgrade price (compared to full stand alone version)?

Sorry if this post has some duplicate, already answered questions.

Yes, if you purchase(d) a FaderPort 2018 on or after July 7th, 2020, you will get Studio One 5 Artist

No, starting in version 5, VST support is included. See features of different versions here: https://www.presonus.com/products/Studio-One/compare-versions

- 32 bit VST plugin support. No more support for running in 32 bit mode?
