asked Nov 7, 2020 in Studio One 5 by fabiofazzi (380 points)

I am currently a MacOS and Logic user. I am thinking to move to Windows in order to save money (my Mac is not perfoming well for music lately and so I should change it). It's clear I can't use Logic. So I am testing Studio One 5 the free version. It's another world of course for me. Anyway I can't find my AU: Reason Intro and Bias FX, my bunch of Waves Plugins. I added the folders as showed in some forum. Thanks for helping.

Hi.  There is not third-party plugin support for Studio One Prime.  This includes rewire, AU and VST.   To get third party plugin support you need pay for the Artist version.  My tip is to consider buying something like the Atom controller or an audio device made by Presonus (you can get an Audiobox or similar by Presonus for about £100) as these devices come packed with a licence for Artist in the bundle.  Audiobox bundle is the best value.  Or the Atom bundle of you have beat making in mind.  Essentially, it's the best value buying a piece of hardware which comes with a subsidised Artist licence.  There are nice pieces of hardware which have tight integration with Studio One daw.
