Baton Rouge, LA (January 18, 2018)—PreSonus has announced a pair of new USB I/Os—the Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces.
The new interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and offer XMAX Class A microphone preamps. All analog inputs and the main L/R outputs have eight-LED, ladder-style level meters.
The Studio 1810 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface records up to 18 simultaneous inputs via two combo mic/instrument/line inputs and two combo mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48 V phantom power; four back-panel, ¼” TRS line inputs; eight channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF inputs.
The unit provides eight outputs, including left and right, ¼” TRS balanced main outputs with dedicated level control and Mute, four ¼” TRS balanced line outputs, and stereo S/PDIF outputs. All analog line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages. Additionally, there are two headphone outputs thatr include A/B switching for monitoring different mix streams.
Meanwhile, the Studio 1824 audio/MIDI interface records up to 18 simultaneous inputs (8×8 at 192 kHz), including two mic/instrument/line inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48 V phantom power, plus eight channels of ADAT Optical input (four channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF. The Studio 1824’s 18 outputs include eight ¼” TRS balanced line outputs; stereo main outputs (which duplicate line outs 1/2), with dedicated Mute and Mono buttons; eight channels of ADAT Optical output (four channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF.
The interfaces come with PreSonus Studio One Artist for Mac and Windows to handle DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration. Additional software—PreSonus UC Surface for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android; and Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for Mac and Windows—is also included
The Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 are expected to street in the second quarter of 2018, around $399.95 and $499.95, respectively.
