The Studio 1824-C 24-bit/192 kHz, USB-C audio interface is ideal for project studios and bands/producers interested in recording full bands, including multi-channel drums. It records up to 18 simultaneous inputs and features 8 microphone inputs with XMAX Class-A preamps, as well as MIDI I/O. Its 18 outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration with included Studio One Artist and UC Surface software.

Superior Sound
High-grade digital converters, ultra-low-jitter clocking, and XMAX preamps add up to a superior recording and listening experience. The Studio 1824C 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. Your music never sounded better!

The Central Hub of Your Studio
The Studio 1824C audio interface features two front-panel combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs and six rear-panel mic/line inputs, all with +48V phantom power for condenser mics. Its eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O (four channels at 96 kHz) enable you to expand the unit with a multichannel preamp/ADC. In addition to L/R main outputs with front-panel Mute, Mono, and level controls, you get eight balanced line outputs for monitor mixing plus stereo S/PDIF digital I/O and two stereo headphone outputs. All line-level outputs are DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages. The onboard DSP lets you create four stereo near-zero latency monitor mixes. A BNC word clock output enables synchronization with other digital devices. Studio 1824C's MIDI I/O enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface, making it your studio's central hub.

World-Class Recording Software Included
The Studio 1824C 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 Wrokstation). 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 1824C's onboard monitor mixer are seamlessly integrated into Studio One so you can easily create near-zero-latency monitor mixes from within your recording environment. You also can remotely monitor mixes using the free Presonus UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android tablet.
