PreSonus today announced its new Studio 24 2×2 USB-C bus-powered audio/MIDI interface. The new desktop box can record up to 24-bit, 192 kHz audio and comes equipped with PreSonus’ latest technology, including XMAX-L solid-state preamps and high-end converters. The goal here is to deliver professional-quality audio in a rugged, compact, all-metal enclosure that can withstand the stresses of travel.
The Studio 24 has two front-panel combo mic/instrument/line inputs with +48V phantom power for condenser mics. A Mixer knob blends analog input and computer playback for low-latency direct monitoring, and LED meters indicate input and output levels. The USB-C port and balanced, ¼-inch TRS, line-level main outputs are positioned on the rear panel, and an output level control is provided on the front. MIDI I/O enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface. USB-C-to-C and USB-C-to-A cables are included in the box, as per the unwritten directive of current-gen audio interfaces.
To get you started recording immediately, the Studio 24 comes with PreSonus’ Studio One® Artist music production software for Mac and Windows computers. Studio One integrates tightly with PreSonus interfaces, configuring itself automatically so no need to map inputs and outputs. You also get the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite, a curated plug-in selection from leading names in the virtual instruments and effects industry.
