New PreSonus USB interface
Posted on: Monday 22nd of January 2018
PreSonus has a pair of new USB A-D/D-A converters: the Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces. The new interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution and all analogue inputs and the main L/R outputs have eight-segment LED 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 +48V phantom power; four back-panel, ¼” TRS line inputs; eight channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96kHz); 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 analogue line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages. Additionally, there are two headphone outputs that 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 192kHz), including two mic/instrument/line inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48V 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 Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 are expected to street in the second quarter of 2018, around $399.95 and $499.95, respectively.
