This would change Studio One completely and make it the king of collaborations, and I can see a lot of creating individuals (composers & producers) making the switch.

Have you ever used Google docs before? It's much better than Microsoft word, not just because it automatically saves you work as your doing it, but because it also allows you to collaborate in real-time with others, which is fantastic. Now people understand the power of Docs, a lot of them have made the switch from MS word and the whole Google suite is extremely popular.

Now, this wouldn't be for documents, of course, this feature would be geared at real-time collaborations. I'm thinking of an optional extension within studio one or even an online version of Studio One. There have been several failed plugins that have attempted this and the latest one is Satellite - ( - Unfortunately, it's not very good or reliable and crashes often and isn't the same as this idea anyway. Remember, no other major DAW offers this feature.

So, it'd work by you sending out an invitation to all of your team members or people with who you want to collaborate with and once everyone has joined, you'd all see the same screen and would be able to see and hear everything in real-time. It should also contain a chat box so you can all know what's going on and a notes section so everybody can read and add on to them. This could even integrate with the PreSonus sphere, in that everything gets saved automatically, and that would fix another problem of forgetting to save your work and then your computer restarting.

Soundation ( is the only other DAW that actually offers this, but of course, they're not a major DAW and I don't fact switching just for 1 feature that you guys could add and do better. Please, PreSonus, make this a reality.
