PreSonus has unveiled its Studio Series USB-C 24-bit, 192 kHz audio interfaces, with five models: the Studio 24c, Studio 26c, Studio 68c, Studio 1810c, and Studio 1824c. These complete, all-in-one recording solutions update and replace PreSonus' first-generation Studio series and feature a USB-C connector. All but the Studio 24c include DC-coupled outputs for sending control voltages, and all five models offer MIDI I/O. USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cables are provided for compatibility with most computers.
Studio Series USB-C audio interfaces come with PreSonus' Studio One Artist music production software for macOS and Windows. Studio One integrates tightly with PreSonus interfaces, configuring automatically—no need to map inputs and outputs. You also get the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite, a carefully selected plug-in collection from the leading names in virtual instruments and effects.
Great for home recording, mobile musicians, guitarists, podcasters, and live streaming, the bus-powered Studio 24c 2-in, 2-out audio interface features 2 front-panel combo mic/line/instrument inputs with PreSonus XMAX-L solid-state mic preamps, 2 rear-panel line outputs, and onboard direct monitoring control.
Designed for DJs, mobile musicians, and electronic musicians who don't want to sacrifice build and sound quality for portability, the bus-powered Studio 26c 2-in, 4-out audio interface presents 2 front-panel combo mic/line/instrument inputs with XMAX-L solid-state mic preamps, 4 rear-panel line outputs, and a Cue Mix A/B button.
An excellent choice for small bands, producers, and small studios, the Studio 68c 6-in, 6-out audio interface offers 4 XMAX preamps—2 mic/line/instrument on the front, and 2 mic/line on the back—as well as S/PDIF I/O.
Built for producers and small bands who want to record from a wide range of sources, the Studio 1810c records up to 18 simultaneous inputs and sports 8 outputs and 4 microphone inputs with XMAX Class A mic preamps.
The Studio 1824c audio interface is perfect for project studios, and especially for recording full bands, including multi-channel drums. It records up to 18 simultaneous inputs and features 8 microphone inputs with XMAX Class A mic preamps. Its 18 outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration with included Studio One Artist and UC Surface software.
