Baton Rouge, Louisiana—March 2021… PreSonus® announced the immediate addition of 19 new sample and loop libraries to PreSonus Sphere. Since launch, PreSonus has consistently added at least one new library or Studio One® Add-on to PreSonus Sphere every single month; however, the addition of more than 9.7 GB of libraries at once represents by far the largest expansion of PreSonus Sphere content since the global online community was launched in July 2020.
The new libraries are royalty-free. All include Audioloops construction kits, compatible with Studio One Prime, Artist, and Professional version 3.5.5 and higher; and Impact XT kits, which are compatible with Studio One Artist and Professional version 4 and higher.
