PreSonus Expands Studio-series USB Interface Line                                                                                                                                            

Baton Rouge, Louisiana—January 2018…Following up on its Studio 26 and Studio 68 ultra-high-definition recording solutions, PreSonus announced the Studio 1810 and Studio 1824 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces. The new interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and feature PreSonus’ famed XMAX Class A microphone preamps, audiophile-grade digital converters, ultra-low-jitter clocking, and MIDI I/O. All analog inputs and the main L/R outputs have eight-LED, ladder-style level meters.

Both interfaces’ outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration with included PreSonus Studio One® Artist for Mac® and Windows® and free PreSonus UC Surface for Mac, Windows, iPad®, and Android™. You also get the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for Mac® and Windows®, which provides seven popular plug-ins in VST, AU, and AAX formats.

A fine choice for project studios, the Studio 1810 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface records up to 18 simultaneous inputs. This includes 2 combo mic/instrument/line inputs and 2 combo mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48V phantom power; 4 back-panel, ¼” TRS line inputs; 8 channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF inputs. You get 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 analog line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages. Two loud, clear headphone outputs include A/B switching for monitoring different mix streams. 

The Studio-series top-of-the-line Studio 1824 audio/MIDI interface records up to 18 simultaneous inputs (8×8 at 192 kHz), including 2 mic/instrument/line inputs and 6 mic/line inputs, all with XMAX Class A mic preamps and global +48V phantom power, plus 8 channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF. The Studio 1824’s generous 18 outputs include 8 ¼” TRS balanced line outputs; stereo main outputs (which duplicate line outs 1/2), with dedicated Mute and Mono buttons; 8 channels of ADAT Optical output (4 channels at 96 kHz); and stereo S/PDIF.
As with the Studio 1810, all Studio 1824 line outputs are DC coupled for sending control voltages, and you get two stereo headphone outputs with independent mix streams. The Studio 1824 also provides BNC word clock output.
PreSonus Studio-series USB Interface Line in the Philippines will be announced as soon as possible.

A true power house upgrade – An analog to a studiolive 24 III

The long wait is over for The Shelter Power House Church of Angeles City, Pampanga headed by Pastor Eric Domingo.

MDI Pro was able to install a new PreSonus StudioLive 24 III digital mixer replacing the old analog Mackie ONYX 32. Upon installing the SL24 III, church attendees instantly notice the big difference in sound. “The Drum Set now sounds like real acoustic drums” – Brando Domingo, Technical AV Head. Not only the sound is noticed but the ease of use especially the USER function where they were able to program the lay-out the easiest possible.

Another function they are happy with is the multi-track recording where the can record their music and produce. Also in the highlight is the use of wireless control using iPad or Android. This feature gives them the freedom to mix anywhere in the house including the stage proper using UC Surface. Next in line for them is the StageBox mixer SL32R to complete the whole system.
