Ok It seems like studio one just needs to put out a plug in that competes with the korg kronos sounds, because thats whats missing to get the real instrument sound of studio one and thats whats used by the real bands. Is that a available? Thats exactly whats missing.

Hi Scottriddick,

I think what you need are the right plugins (or samples). It is not possible to cover every music type in a single software. That is what plugins are for. Every producer / musician buys those plugins that are needed for the type of music he/she wants to make. So if you want to have a nice guitar sound and the stock plugin Ampire is not suitable you, you should buy the plugin you need. There are thousands of plugins available and some of them are even free to download. Best way is to search in your favourite search engine online for the original hardware you are looking for, added by "VST plugin" or something similar. I think you will find the instruments and sounds that you need in the www. I think it's not fair to blame Studio One / PreSonus for not providing the sounds you need in your specific case ;-) 

I hope I could help you,

To replicate the sound of specific songs closely, you might consider investing in high-quality virtual instruments and sample libraries. Software like Native Instruments Kontakt, Spectrasonics Omnisphere, and various orchestral libraries can help you achieve more authentic and nuanced sounds.

Additionally, having a good digital audio workstation (DAW) like Logic Pro, Pro Tools, or Cubase can provide you with the tools needed for recording, editing, and mixing your cover songs effectively.
