Baton Rouge, LA (May 5, 2016)—PreSonus has shipped its new Studio 192 Mobile USB 3.0 22 x 26 audio interface and studio command center, which is said to be functionally identical to the original Studio 192 i/o but with a smaller footprint to facilitate mobile use.
The Studio 192 Mobile records at up to 192 kHz and combines a pair of digitally controlled XMAX Class A, solid-state mic preamps and Burr-Brown converters with 118 dB of dynamic range. It offers 18 channels of digital I/O, and can handle up to 16 additional remote-controlled microphone preamps when expanded with two DigiMax DP88 A/D/A converters.
The designation of being a “central command center” according to the company, is because it offers talkback control, Mono and Dim for the main mix output, word clock I/O, a dedicated DAC for the headphone output, and the ability to use six balanced outputs for monitor mixing or for speaker switching.
Studio 192 Mobile also features the same Fat Channel plug-in found in PreSonus’ Studio One DAW to add parametric EQ and dynamics processing, which can be used for near-zero-latency monitoring or printed to tracks. When used in conjunction with Studio One 3 (Artist edition included), the hybrid Fat Channel plug-in shifts between recording using Studio 192 Mobile’s DSP and playback using Studio One’s native Fat Channel plug-in.
The Studio 192 Mobile offers two front-panel mic/instrument inputs and two rear-panel direct-to-ADC line inputs; 16-channel ADAT Optical In and Out (8 channels at 88.1 or 96 kHz); coaxial, stereo S/PDIF I/O; and BNC word-clock I/O.
