Activating a PreSonus Studio One license

Applies to
Studio One Pro and Artist V3 or later, download or boxed versions

When you purchase a Studio One license from Music EDnet you will receive a license code, either by email for the download version, or in a box if ordered with the software on USB.

Register and Download Studio One

To download the Studio One installer, log into your My.PreSonus user account at http://my.presonus.com. If you do not have a My.PreSonus account, create one first.

IMPORTANT : For school licenses it is recommended that you use a generic email address (eg ITsupport@…)

MyPreSonus Login

Once logged in, click on “Register a Product” (yellow button), a new dialog box will open with a drop down option.

Register Product

Here you should register your software and/or hardware that came with your purchase.
In many cases the hardware registration will release the software that comes bundled with your purchased hardware.

Resgister Dropdown

Click the Software or Extensions in the drop down menu.

Now enter your 28-Digit Product Key.
The 28-Digit Product Key will appear in the following format: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (where “X” can be either a letter or number).

NOTE: There are no zero’s (0) or one’s (1) in Studio One Product Keys. If you encounter a digit that resembles either, it will be a lower-case “O” (Oscar) or a lower-case “L” (Lima). Entering a zero (0) or one (1) or not including the dashes (-) after every 4th digit will yield an error message from the registration server stating: “Product Key Invalid“.

Enter Key

Once you have correctly entered the 28-Digit Product Key and clicked on “Register” to redeem this registration. Then you will get a confirmation window such as this which will take you to the license you just registered.
Click the Green Button “View Your Product” to continue.


The newly registered software will show up in the software section of your My.Presonus account like this:
