PreSonus Studio 1824C 18x20 USB Type-C Audio/MIDI Interface



The PreSonus Studio 1824c is an 18x20 USB Type-C audio/MIDI interface offering high-resolution conversion and a powerful software package for bands and audio engineers in home/project studios and mobile setups. Connect mic-, instrument-, or line-level sources via eight XLR-1/4" combo inputs, each utilizing its own gain control and XMAX Class-A mic preamp with phantom power. Integrate digital equipment via 8-channel ADAT optical I/O and stereo S/PDIF I/O. A BNC word clock is provided to ensure proper synchronization of other interfaces or digital mixers. Operate at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution without sacrificing channel count or at 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz sample rates with 8x8 I/O functionality. 


The Studio 1824c has two 1/4" main outputs with a dedicated level control, mute switch, and mono button for use with a pair of active monitors, plus eight balanced 1/4" TRS line outputs. Two 1/4" TRS stereo headphone outputs with front-panel volume knobs accommodate two sets of headphones. The 5-pin MIDI I/O jacks on the rear panel allow simple hookup of a MIDI controller, synthesizer, or sound module.

The Studio 1824c includes USB cables for easy connectivity to your compatible macOS- or Windows-equipped computer. It is powered via an included external power supply. Also supplied is a software bundle featuring the Studio One Artist DAW and the Studio Magic plug-in suite—a slew of creative tools for producers, engineers, songwriters, and more.
