2017 NAMM Show: PreSonus has introduced two new audio interfaces, the Studio 26 and Studio 68 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces.
Both interfaces record at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and feature audiophile-grade digital converters, ultra-low-jitter clocking, and MIDI I/O. The Studio-series interfaces also come with the company’s Studio One Artist DAW software for Mac and Windows.
The Studio 26 2×4 bus-powered audio/MIDI interface, above, 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, you get two balanced line outputs for monitor mixing, while LED meters indicate input and output levels. A Cue Mix A/B function lets you toggle between two mixes while monitoring through headphones.
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 speaker switching plus S/PDIF I/O. A Cue Mix A/B function lets you toggle between two mixes while monitoring through headphones.
