The Hitmaker. Created for demanding producers. The Studio 1824c 192 kHz USB-C audio interface is ideal for producers interested in recording full bands, including multi-channel drums. It records up to 18 simultaneous inputs and features 8 XMAX Class A mic preamps, as well as MIDI I/O. Its 20 outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration with included Studio One® Artist music production software and UC Surface control software.

World-class recording software included. Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus UC Surface control software for macOS®, Windows®, iPad®, and Android™ tablet and Studio One Artist music production software, the Studio 1824c audio interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software. Easy to learn, Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted by the tools. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content right from your production environment—including powerful extensions for Studio One like the CTC-1 Console Shaper and Presence XT Editor.

Take the tour. The Studio 1824c audio interface features USB-C computer connectivity and records up to 18 simultaneous inputs, including two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with XMAX mic preamps and +48V phantom power. Digital inputs include eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O (four channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF I/O. In addition to the main L/R outputs, you get eight DC-coupled line-level outputs that can send control voltages. You also get two headphone outputs. A built-in MIDI interface enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface.

Superior sound. The Studio 1824c audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters on every input and output and PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX mic preamps deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound.
