You need cue mix monitoring for live DJ gigs as well as in the studio. You need direct line inputs for external synths, and need expandability. That's why Presonus created the Studio 1810C USB Audio Interface. With 18 flexible inputs, 8 outputs, cue mix monitoring on the first of two headphone outputs, and an onboard DSP monitor mixer that's integrated into both Studio One Artist and UC Surface, the Studio 1810C delivers superior audio and the features electronic music producers and DJs need.
High-grade digital converters, ultra-low-jitter clocking, and XMAX preamps create a superior recording and listening experience. The Studio 1810C audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters on every input and output provide 115 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. XMAX Class-A microphone preamps 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, making it ideal for both vocal production and sampling.
4 Mic Preamps and Multiple Inputs
All four combo connections feature line level inputs with 40 dB of gain for low-level line devices. Four direct-to-ADC balanced line inputs are ideal for connecting synthesizers, outboard preamps, and channel strips. And, the Studio 1810C audio interface is equipped with eight channels of ADAT Optical input (four channels at 96 kHz), enabling you to expand your inputs with an 8-channel converter, so your recording system can grow along with your synth collection. The first of two high-powered headphone outputs feature's Cue Mix A/B so you can choose between two mixes with a button press, providing the flexibility you need for live DJ performances and studio collaboration. In addition to L/R main outputs with front-panel Mute and level controls, you get four balanced line outputs for monitor mixing plus stereo S/PDIF digital I/O. All line-level outputs are DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages. An 18x6 monitor mixer lets you create three stereo near-zero-latency monitor mixes. Studio 1810C's audio interface's MIDI I/O enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface, as well, making this versatile interface the heart of your studio.
World-Class Recording Software Integration
The Studio 1810C Audio Interface works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software but it really shines when used with the included Presonus Studio One Artist DAW (Digital Audio Workspace). Built by creative people for creative music production, Studio One is easy to learn and enables you to compose, record, and produce your masterpiece without getting distracted by the tools. The mix controls for the Studio 1810C's onboard monitor mixer are seamlessly integrated into Studio One. Using Studio One's unique Z-Mix feature, you can create near zero-latency monitor mixes without leaving your recording environment. You also can remote-control monitor mixes using free Presonus UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android.
