Nothing. A week ago this URL had still a manual for v4.5. I'm happy they've updated it (although it's for 5.0, not 5.1). I like user manuals, especially if they're up-to-date :help:

...or just use the visibility panel in the piano roll, which lets you select which midi tracks you see and which are available for editing.

(that thing in the upper-left corner)

Didn't know that was there, I hide as much of the GUI as I possibly can.

Presonus seems to be lagging. :hihi:
They should leave this task to the german engineering team doing all the actual work on S1. Things would be updated like clockwork. 8)

Not sure how I feel yet.
Some things are really nice while it has some major flaws I just want to Chuck my mouse at the monitor.
The arrangement section is finicky when I want to duplicate something after have spent time in the editor and then it duplicates in the editor instead
When I want to edit a midi section when most DAWs you can double click and then I end up with a few slices.... Why?! I don't even have the slicing tool selected
There's a plus and negative side to the tabbing system.
Plus is that I can go to a synth when editing sounds and stuff with ease.
Negative is that the effects and synths they go to are separate. This has caused some frustrating changes to the wrong channel.
Theres a growing list but it's not as long of one as fl studio is for my frustrations.

Trying out reason and the more I learn it the easier things kinda get like actually seeing the routing via cables instead of text boxes lets me know I'm doing it right among other things.

Interesting, after 7 years struggling with Reason, the switch to Studio One was like gaining freedom. But I was a long-term user of Cubase and Logic before, so I guess I prefer the technical approach (since Cubase, Logic, and S1 are in their general structure very similar).

That was the appeal to me since following tutorials for certain things was easy to translate from cuebase to studio one.
Though I do wish that they had similar channel stuff like the eq as part of it and the signal chain being shown like cuebase. Would easy my frustrations with the multi window approach with multitudes of tabs.
