PreSonus Studio 1824c – 18×20 USB Type-C Audio/MIDI Interface

Offering ultrahigh-resolution conversion, eight Class-A preamps, a host of outputs, and a powerful software package for bands and engineers in project studios, the PreSonus Studio 1824c rackmount 18×20 USB audio/MIDI interface blends studio-quality, sonic performance, bountiful and expandable I/O, and refreshing ease of use, all in a sturdy chassis that occupies just a single rack space.

With selectable 48V phantom power and eight XMAX Class-A mic preamps fed via XLR-1/4″ combo inputs, the Studio 1824c can accommodate any source from condenser microphones and active DI boxes to electric instruments and line-level mixer outputs with clarity and natural tonality. All inputs and outputs feature quality converters that let the interface operate at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution without sacrificing channel count, or at a 192 kHz sample rate with 8×8 I/O functionality.

When you use speakers, multiple headphones, or both, the Studio 1824c provides equally ideal operability with its two independent 1/4″ headphone outputs, two main line/monitor outs, eight additional line outputs, and separate volume controls for both headphone outs and the main output.

A quick press of the mute button cuts the main outputs, so you can communicate with clients in the room without shouting over the music. The interface also features a mono button for checking the stereo-to-mono translation of your mix.

The 10 line outputs are DC-coupled, so you can send MIDI sync and sequencer data from your DAW as CV (control voltage) to external analog synthesizers and drum modules. Unlike many budget interfaces, the Studio 1824c sports 4-segment LED meters for all eight analog inputs and the main outs. The 5-pin MIDI I/O jacks on the rear panel allow simple hookup of a MIDI controller, synthesizer, or groovebox, making the Studio 1824c advantageous for beatmakers, keyboardists, and electronic music producers. With a BNC wordclock output and digital I/O connections for stereo S/PDIF and 8-channel ADAT, the Studio 1824c is a potent companion for other digital equipment such as external preamps with A/D converters and digital mixers.

The Studio 1824c is powered by the included 12 VDC power supply and is supplied with USB Type-C and USB Type-A cables for easy connectivity to your compatible macOS- or Windows-equipped computer. The interface is bundled with the robust and versatile Studio One Artist DAW software and the Studio Magic plug-in suite, delivering a host of effects, virtual instruments, and third-party loops, software, and instrument sounds to kickstart your creativity.
