The ioStation 24c audio interface and production controller provides the tools needed for all of these diverse roles in a compact, ergonomic desktop design that will fit into any home studio. Record your audio through two pristine XMAX mic preamps and high-definition 24-bit, 192 kHz analog-to-digital converters. Navigate your recordings with easy-to-use transport controls. Edit your production and automate parameters in your favorite DAW with the powerful Session Navigator and mix it all with a 100 mm touch-sensitive motorized fader. Whether you’re a musician producing your latest album or just getting started with your first podcast, the ioStation 24c gives you all the tools you need to record and mix with the ease of hands-on, tactile control—all in a single device that doesn’t clutter your creative space.

Computer system requirements:

Below are the minimum computer-system requirements for the ioStation 24c.

Mac

  • macOS® 10.11 or higher (64-bit only)
  • Intel® i-series 2 GHz multicore processor (or AMD equivalent) or faster
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Windows

  • Windows® 7 x64 SP1 + platform update, Windows 8.1 x64, Windows 10 x64
  • Intel i-series 2 GHz multicore processor (or AMD equivalent) or faster
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Mac and Windows Systems

  • USB-C™ or USB-A 2.0 port compatibility
  • 32 GB hard disk space
  • PreSonus Universal Control 2.0 or higher
