I having problems downloading this ext., Softube Saturation Knob, from Softube. First contacted Presonus about the problem, only to be told it was not their problem, that they had no control over Softube's links. I contacted Softube by email to receive a email back that their link was working fine. Seeing as how this problem is not Presonus or Softube it must be me that is causing the problem??? I go through the steps like, I think, everybody else dose 1) enter my email address, 2) click on download, it saves my email address and registers it, no link. Does anyone out there have any ideas on how to fix this problem. Thanks...

Try a different browser. Some users reported problems with Internet Explorer but could successfully download the plug-in with Chrome.

I´ve got problems myself with Softube plugin.

Downloaded it with both Firefox and Explorer without any apparent problem, but when installing, Studio One opens and a sign shows up saying "Softube Knob is not compatible with Studio One!".

Thankful for hints on how to solve this.

Which Studio One version do you have? AFAIK this only works with 2.5 (Professional and Producer).

Yeah, I also found out now that it only works with 2.5, didn´t see that anywhere.

Anyway, I installed 2.5 and the Softube plugin worked.

But, as I´ve experienced in earlier attempts to install S1-updates, it´s way too early to install the 2.5 update because it totally screws up my projects with transposed tracks that are reset, audio files missing, etc, so I´ll have to go back to my older version and wait with the Softube plugin until 2.5 is sorted out by Presonus.

^IMO... the 2.5 update is worth doin some work arounds for certain projects.

I would recommend simply installed the 2.0.6 version to a separate folder... and using 2.5 where you can. Just do whatever workaround you need to do to make sure your 2.0.6 projects behave as expected in 2.5.

Bus recording, softube saturation, and a few other goodies seriously got me thru some projects i would've had no chance to complete on time in 2.0.6... and it feels even more stable to be honest.

I don't find where to download the plug in. I used to use it on every project on my older computer.

Think the website for it is down or something.

Shoot your email over in a PM, I don't mind sharing it. It's free to S1 users!

I don't see why it's not included in exchange. Maybe there's a reason. If i'm wrong for sharing this please somebody let me know.

Thanks for your email Cphoenix.
I was not at home when I received it on my laptop (which already has the softube) and now that I found back my desktop at home I've lost your email. I'm a d*ck...
Would be cool if Presonus put back a correct link for plug in.

To install just drop the file into Studio One's starting page.

Drag and Drop does not work for me for some reason. I found double-clicking the file ext ( .install and .soundsets ) w/ the start page open worked fine. Looked for options for this function, found none. Every file is checked for Admin rights, and I am Admin and only user on my PC's ,,, ( let's not talk the " Mac vs. PC,, lol ) I also do all installs with firewall/AV disabled - Nortons - )

For Softube Saturation Knob install on PC, this file download SoftubeSaturationKnob.zip does not work. After extract there is no .install file ext and just shows the .xml files. I tried to change the extracted file folder from .win to .install and failed to execute. Then I thought to change the .zip ext to a .install ext and it worked perfectly to install Softube Saturation Knob into S12 as the appropriate Extension. All this was done with the Start Page open

Sent ticket on this and Addons purchased and what I did to get them all to install correctly...

Hello. The downloaded file for Softtube Saturation Knob ends in ",win". It is the install application file. PreSonus can't help you with this, but I will check out what I can for you. What version of Producer are you on as it only works with 2.5 or higher.

As far as not being able to install additional content, are you talking about purchased add ons? Have you opened a tech support ticket? If you have a ticket number please PM me the number.

Thanks, Skip

Thanks skip jones...

I'm all good,,, the drag/drop method doesn't work for me ,,, so I used the double-click method for AmpireXT and GoldBaby and I had the start page open. Dropped them in track in S12 and verified install/activation.

Progression 2 failed with S12 up, so I closed it and install went fine.and activated.

With Saturation Knob I had to change the .zip to .install ... the extract file .win just opened notepad with no commands. After file extension change to .install it went perfect with start page open.

Yes, I sent a ticket with a bit more description and gave the reason for the ticket to make it easier for future S12 users.
I need to update my Signature,,, I have Studio One 2 Professional ver 2.6.2. My OS is Win 8 64bit ( not 8.1 ) I may update to 8.1 after bugs are less and it's more stable.

Everything is installed in it's proper folder now. This DAW is new to me, and I have plenty to learn, lol... I joined a couple sites like Johhny's for one, and found a lot of instructional vids. Many of which are posted in FAQ.
I wanted to get all the possible plugins addons and extensions installed and activated. It is a bit confusing for a noob like me to verify and learning the Browser is most helpful, but a little bit to learn where and how to access what is available to make sure all is as it can be.

I even found Billy Martins Grooves soundset sis the survey and installed. It may be 32bit but I do believe Pro has the ability to use both 32bit and 64bit... and since I'm not sure yet, this may be only for VST2 and 3,,, lol... Am I a noob or what,,

Also bought EZD2 installed and added the EZX's ( I researched and thought I wanted Superior Drummer2 and I was right, but I let the sales rep from my place of purchase talk me into EZD2. ) Great for song structure quick, but lacks the quality and options I really wanted to learn. Eh, learning is expensive,,, lol
