Other Items to consider
Professional quality for home recording studios.
Whether you’re recording your first album or your hit podcast’s latest episode, the Studio 24c will help you sound your best. With two of PreSonus’ pristine XMAX-L mic preamps for recording vocals; plus high headroom instrument preamps so you can connect your guitar or bass right to your interface; and professional input metering so you can keep track of your recording levels, the Studio 24c delivers amazing sound quality in a rugged, compact form factor. A complete home recording studio right out of the box, the Studio 24c audio interface comes with a complimentary license of PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® Artist music production software, so you can get recording right away.
World-class recording software included.
Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One Artist music production software, the Studio 24c interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software. Easy to learn, Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted by the tools or hemmed in with track limitations. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content and upgrades without even opening your browser—you’ll build the version of Studio One that’s right for you. By combining a flexible single-window user interface with modern, beat-based production workflow, Studio One’s drag-and-drop approach doesn’t dictate how you work or what you work on.
The Studio 24c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX-L mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX-L mic preamps are designed to perform optimally on bus-powered audio interfaces, allowing you to take great sound with you wherever you record.
When you have the right tools, any job is easier and faster to finish. That’s why we included professional input and output metering on the Studio 24c, allowing you to keep an eye on your input and mix levels when you’re recording by yourself. An easy to use Mix control lets you blend your analog inputs with playback from your computer, making creating a great monitor mix fast and simple.
Wherever the sound takes you.
Whether you're just getting into recording or are a veteran producer who wants to go mobile, the Studio 24c will give you clear, clean, ultra-high-def sound in a bus-powered, rugged unit. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the Studio 24c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.
Make your own magic.
PreSonus wanted to make sure that their audio interfaces come with everything you need to craft your own mesmerising spells in the studio. That’s why they include Studio One Artist with every audio interface product they make. But in PreSonus' home of Louisiana, they have a word: lagniappe. It means "a little something extra," and it’s in that spirit that PreSonus also include the Studio Magic Suite of software with their audio interface products.
The 2020 Studio Magic is a major step up from the 2019 edition, and includes Ableton Live Lite, tutorials from Melodics, 6 virtual instruments, and 9 effects plug-ins in VST, AU, and AAX formats... all unlocked for use inside Studio One Artist with a retail value of over $1000 (US).
