We’ve been talking about it for some time now and together with PreSonus we’ve been demoing the beta version of Studio One with built-in SoundCloud export at both NAMM and Musikmesse. At these trade shows, PreSonus had a bunch of great artists playing live on stage and every performance was recorded straight into Studio One. The recordings were then mixed and exported to SoundCloud with the audience still watching.
It’s really exciting to announce that the new version of Studio One is now available for everyone! It’s the first complete music creation software with built-in SoundCloud support and we think this is an important step towards making the music world more connected.
So how does this work in Studio One…
There’s a SoundCloud Client that you connect to your SoundCloud account. The connection is stored in the app so the next time you launch Studio One it’s already connected and you can start uploading files right away.
Drag and drop audio files from the internal browser or any folder in your file system onto the SoundCloud Client, fill in the meta data you want to add, and hit Upload. The files are exported straight to your SoundCloud account.
This is obviously a really convenient way of sharing the tracks you make, but it also makes it easier to upload samples, loops, guitar tracks, vocals, and other parts you create. Our hope is that this will open up for collaborations and other new ways of making music. As you might have heard, Ableton have already announced that they are building SoundCloud export into Live and we expect to see and number of other new integrations launched this year.
To celebrate the launch of Studio One, PreSonus is making a special offer until May 31. Go check it out, connect Studio One to your SoundCloud account and start moving more music!
And by the way, we’re really interested in hearing your thoughts on this and what you wish to see in upcoming integrations so please, let us know in the comments! Thanks!
