I m originally coming from Cubase. Then I used logic pro. Because my band uses the StuidoLive 24 III Mixing Console as the 24R III Rack Mixer as a monitor mixer or standalone for smaller venues I am using Studio One as DAW for my band.
Since Studio One 5 is able to run an arrangement track in its Show Module there is the opportunity to pre-produce a show for live perfomance in a way no other DAW can do. Big compliment to Presonus software engineers for this long wished feature. Thank you :)
This way I can not only create patches for any part of a song telling Studio One 5 what FX plugin is used with certain presets on audio tracks, basicly live performed external and virtual instruments now can be used in a very comfortable way. Due to the new arranger track in the show module of Studio One I am able to use different patches on specific song parts now, enabeling an instrument track switching from one virtual instrument to another, regarding what part of a song is actually running. NICE!
The switching from one Instrument to another by patches works. Basicly., but it causes glitches/lags on my sytem/my computer inviroment
Studio one is doing exatly what it's supposed to to when I run a show after I created patches picking an virtual Instrument with a certain sound: The Intro with patch A (i.e. Cello from a Sampler ) puts a cello to my hands, the Verse starting with Patch B (fpr exampkle a Synth), gives me the Synth sound I want, without that I have to care about the next sound while I am playing live. Basicly great feature, - but particular not yet:
Loading/switching from one instrument to another by a patch causes the show player to halt/delay while Studio One is busy to loading the "new" Piano instrument and it sounds/samples preset saved in the patch.
Ok. this behaviour ocurred on my Mac Mini M1 Big Sur 11.2. (I know, I know,... I was too fast buying this)
Anyone else with same problems ?
Anyone else with same problems under Big sur on a Intel based mac?
Same problems when only using Presonus instruments delivered with Studio one?
Or is this a problem that only occures with third party products? (I am using third party Instruments from Native Instruments as from Steinerg as well.)
ist there a opportunity what lets a Studio One Show preload all used/pached Virtual/Instruments or sounds into a cache BEFORE the show is started, so loadtime of virtual instruments is being reduced and the show module doesn't stop/lag???
