PreSonus has announced that its Studio 192 USB 3.0 audio interface and Studio Command Center is now available.
The new 26 x 32 interface records at up to 192 kHz and combines 8 digitally controlled XMAX™ Class A, solid-state mic preamps and premium Burr-Brown converters with 118 dB of dynamic range. Easily expanded with PreSonus’ new DigiMax™ DP88 professional 8-channel A/D/A converter with remote-controllable preamps, the Studio 192 provides a completely integrated hardware and software solution for personal and professional studios.
More than an audio interface, the Studio 192 acts as your studio’s command center, managing speaker switching and talkback (with onboard condenser microphone) and featuring main mix Mute, Mono, and Dim. In addition to advanced monitor mixing, you get StudioLive™ Fat Channel signal processing on every analog input and the first eight ADAT channels. The result is a comprehensive solution for advanced studio recording and monitoring.
PreSonus’ innovative UC Surface touch-ready control software for Mac®, Windows®, and iPad® is included for easy management of all Studio 192 functions. Users of PreSonus Studio One® DAW will find full preamp control and zero-latency monitor-mix functions integrated into their recording environment. PreSonus’ exclusive hybrid Fat Channel plug-in runs on the Studio 192’s DSP and in Studio One on your computer, so you can record and monitor with zero-latency using Studio 192-based Fat Channel EQ and dynamics processing and seamlessly switch to Studio One’s Fat Channel for playback with no audible change.
Introduced in StudioLive™ RM-series rack-mount digital mixers, PreSonus’ remote-controllable XMAX solid-state preamps can be controlled from the Studio 192 front panel, UC Surface, Studio One®. MIDI control is also available for third-party DAWs.
The Studio 192 offers ample I/O, with 2 front-panel mic/instrument inputs and 6 rear-panel mic/line inputs; 16-channel ADAT Optical In and Out (8 channels at 88.1 or 96 kHz); coaxial, stereo S/PDIF I/O; and BNC word-clock I/O. You get eight balanced TRS outputs, balanced stereo Main outputs, and two headphone amplifiers with independent outputs and level controls. All A/D/A conversion is at 192 kHz.
Studio One version 3.1 is being released concurrently with the Studio 192 and is now available. The new version adds preamp and Fat Channel control for the Studio 192 and other new integration features, enhancements, and fixes. As with past PreSonus incremental updates, version 3.1 is free to registered Studio One 3 users.
The Studio 192 is available for a street price of $899.95 USD.
