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.
