At the 2019 NAMM Show in Anaheim, PreSonus has unveiled Studio Series USB-C audio interfaces, which includes five 24-bit, 192 kHz models: Studio 24c, Studio 26c, Studio 68c, Studio 1810c, and Studio 1824c.
All but the Studio 24c include DC-coupled outputs for sending control voltages, and every model offers MIDI I/O. In addition, USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cables are provided for compatibility with most computers.
Studio One Artist music production software for macOS and Windows is included with the interfaces. Studio One configures automatically, no need to map inputs and outputs. Also supplied is the Studio Magic plugin suite, a collection from several leaders in virtual instruments and effects.
