Hi. I use S1 from few years and I love this DAW. Until then I used S1 to record vocals and produce music using virtual instruments - there is great tool for composer and producer. Everything is OK...the problem appears when I want to work on MIDI files. I think that producers of S1 forgot about MIDI protocol.

For example control over "program change" data is tragic, export only MIDI 1 is too not enough . In comparison,e.g Cubase, Pro Tools - Studio One is very weak . I would like to use S1 like external hardware for my Korg Pa4x - making e.g styles from midi file but working on midi files in S1 is tragic.

As I said before I love Studio One, but increasingly I must using another DAW (Pro Tools) to make styles for my Korg PA4, because Studio One just can't do it...Studio One producers !!! ... think about improving MIDI support ... Many people using this software need it ...

Are there any plans to improve MIDI in Studio One? I would not want to part with it ... Until now I thought that the S1 is a very universal DAW, but the MIDI support is very poor ...Please - fix this...

Agreed 100 percent. It’s almost as if it were left out. I hope this really gets upgraded to make it user friendly for midi users. Setting up the software with hardware gear is terrible and there are tons of midi note lock up problems using midi interfaces. Midi is so old news Presonus, it’s as basic as it gets. And it still doesn’t work properly. I see your tutorial guy using Two synths. Try connecting 5 or more and see what happens. A lot of stuff is going outboard gear now. It’s time to figure it out.

Wow! I couldn't agree more. I've been wracking my brain over this for quite a while. I hope they can increase the MIDI functionality ASAP.

I have the same issue. Tried many ways to export. The midi file runs in the song player on PA4x. But unable to use with style maker. Cubase does the job easily. Has anyone fixed this for studio one? Thx
