Baton Rouge, LA (April 17, 2015)—PreSonus has announced its Studio 192 USB 3.0 Audio Interface and Studio Command Center, a 26 x 32 interface that records at up to 192 kHz.
The unit combines eight digitally controlled XMAX Class A solid-state mic preamps and Burr-Brown converters with StudioLive Fat Channel signal processing. The Studio 192 also manages speaker switching and talkback via an onboard condenser microphone, and features main mix Mute, Mono, and Dim.
PreSonus’ UC Surface touch-ready control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad is included, for mangement of all Studio 192 functions and creation of eight stereo monitor mixes with Fat Channel processing on every analog input, plus reverb and delay.
PreSonus’ remote-controllable XMAX solid-state preamps use the same analog circuitry as in StudioLive AI consoles, but add a separate digital volume-control circuit for digital recall. They can be remote controlled from the Studio 192 front panel, UC Surface control software, Studio One DAW, or any third-party DAW by setting up Studio 192 as a standard MIDI device, allowing users to store preamp settings with each session.
The Studio 192 features two front-panel mic/instrument inputs and six rear-panel mic/line inputs; 16-channel ADAT Optical In and Out (eight channels at 88.1 or 96 kHz); coaxial, stereo S/PDIF I/O; and BNC word-clock I/O. It also offers eight balanced TRS outputs, balanced stereo Main outputs, and two headphone amplifiers with independent outputs and level controls. High-end Burr-Brown A/D/A converters offer 118 dB of dynamic range.
The Studio 192 is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2015.
