How to load pitch name presets in Studio One

(THANKS to user sunmachine for writing out these instructions!)

Here’s a little step-by-step guide that explains how to load pitch name presets (a. k. a. drum maps) in PreSonus Studio One. There are two ways to do this: 

  1. Loading presets with the Pitch Name Editor
  2. Loading presets via drag and drop


You’ll find some pitch name presets and a template for creating new ones in the download section.
Read this if you need help installing presets.

Loading presets with the Pitch Name Editor


Step 1: Select a track.

Step 2: Open the Music Editor.

Step 3: Click on the drum roll icon:

music-editor-drum-roll

Step 4: Click on the wrench icon to open the Pitch Name Editor:

music-editor-wrench

Step 5: Click on the arrow icon and select a preset from the drop-down list:

pitch-name-editor-select-preset

Tip: You can preview the presets by navigating through the drop-down list.

Loading presets via drag and drop


Alternative to use the Pitch Name Editor you can simply drag and drop a pitch name preset file from the file browser into the pitch name area of the Music Editor. You can select preset files in arbitrary locations on your hard drive -- it’s not necessary for the files to reside in a particular place. The file name extension of these preset files is .pitchlist (not shown in the Studio One file browser).

Tip: Use the bookmark feature (create a tab for a file location) of the file browser to create a quick link to your pitch names preset folder:
