PreSonus introduces Studio Series USB-C consisting of 5 models 24/01/19
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. They tell us that 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. Here's more details in Presonus' own words...
Studio Series USB-C audio interfaces come with PreSonus’ award-winning 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.
