PreSonus is now shipping its Studio 26 and Studio 68 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces.
Both interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and feature PreSonus’ XMAX microphone preamps, audiophile-grade digital converters, low-jitter clocking, and MIDI I/O.
As with all PreSonus recording systems, Studio-series interfaces come with the company’s Studio One Artist DAW software and Studio Magic Plugin Suite for Mac and Windows. The Studio Magic bundle includes seven popular plugins in VST, AU, and AAX formats.
The Studio 26 2×4 bus-powered audio/MIDI interface features two front-panel combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs with +48V phantom power for condenser mics.
In addition to the L/R main outputs, it offers two balanced line outputs for monitor mixing, while LED meters indicate input and output levels. A cue mix A/B function lets users toggle between two mixes while monitoring through headphones—perfect for DJs and to listen in on a performer’s monitor mix.
This combination makes Studio 26 a great choice for podcasters, singer/songwriters, DJs, live streaming, or a couple of guitarists who want to collaborate or jam. Use it for recording sermons and teaching music, too.
For small studios, the Studio 68 6-in, 6-out audio/MIDI interface sports 2 front-panel combo mic/line/instrument inputs and 2 rear-panel mic/line inputs. In addition to the L/R main outputs, you get two balanced line outputs for monitor mixing or loudspeaker switching plus S/PDIF I/O.
Both PreSonus Studio-series audio/MIDI interfaces are available immediately at PreSonus dealers.
Expected U.S. MAP/street prices are: Studio 26 $199, Studio 68 $299.
