PreSonus has announced two new additions to its Studio series with the Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces.
The new interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and feature PreSonus’ XMAX Class A microphone preamps, high-quality digital converters, ultra-low-jitter clocking, and MIDI I/O. All analogue inputs and the main L/R outputs have eight-LED, ladder-style level meters.
Both interfaces’ outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control room integration with included PreSonus Studio One Artist for Mac and Windows and free PreSonus UC Surface for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android. The Studio Magic Plugin Suite for Mac and Windows is also included, which provides seven popular plugins in VST, AU, and AAX formats.
The Studio 1810 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface records up to 18 simultaneous inputs, including 2 combo mic/instrument/line inputs and 2 combo mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48V phantom power; 4 back-panel, ¼” TRS line inputs; 8 channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF inputs. Users get eight outputs, including left and right, ¼” TRS balanced main outputs with dedicated level control and Mute, four ¼” TRS balanced line outputs, and stereo S/PDIF outputs. All analogue line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages. Two loud, clear headphone outputs include A/B switching for monitoring different mix streams.
The Studio 1824 audio/MIDI interface on the other hand records up to 18 simultaneous inputs (8x8 at 192 kHz), including 2 mic/instrument/line inputs and 6 mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48V phantom power, plus 8 channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF.
The Studio 1824’s 18 outputs include 8 ¼” TRS balanced line outputs; stereo main outputs (which duplicate line outs 1/2), with dedicated Mute and Mono buttons; 8 channels of ADAT Optical output (4 channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF. As with the Studio 1810, all Studio 1824 line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages, and users get two stereo headphone outputs with independent mix streams. The Studio 1824 also provides BNC word clock output.
The Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2018, with anticipated street prices of $399.95 and $499.95, respectively.
