Presonus Studio 1824C
Professional tools for professional results
Studio 1824c: The full-featured, ultra-high-def, USB-C™ compatible audio interface.
Record the entire band.
PreSonus was a pioneer in high-channel-count audio interfaces and has spent the last 20 years listening to our customers and creating the best audio interfaces for recording large sessions. The Studio 1824c provides amazing sound-quality with eight of PreSonus’ lauded XMAX analog mic preamps onboard and pristine 24-bit 192 kHz conversion. Add two low-noise instrument preamps, balanced line level inputs, and an ADAT input to add 8 more channels whenever you need them and you have an audio interface ready to record just about any session. A complete, all-in-one recording package, Studio One® Artist music production software is included with the Studio 1824c, offering unlimited tracking with tight control-room integration.
The Studio 1824c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and eight of PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX mic preamps are known the world over for their ability to deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound so you’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.
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.
Professional tools make any job easier. That’s why we included professional input and output metering on the Studio 1824c, allowing you to keep an eye on your input and mix levels while running your session. Easy-to-use DSP monitor mixing lets you create four discrete near-zero latency monitor mixes, enough for even the largest ensembles. All line-level outputs are also DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages. Front-panel Mute, Mono, and level controls let you keep a hold of your main mix.
Wherever the sound takes you.
Whether you’re upgrading your studio or building a new space for your band to record, the Studio 1824c has you covered with superior mic preamps, expandable inputs, and powerful, easy-to-use onboard monitor mixing to give you the world-class results you want. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the Studio 1824c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.
