Manufacturer's Description from Presonus

The PreSonus Studio 192 is the first USB 3.0 audio interface to deliver exceptional sonic fidelity and flexible connectivity, as well as professional monitoring and mixing controls, in a single rack-space. Whether you’re a producer or an audio engineer, an independent band or a sound designer, the Studio 192 was built for you to create.

The Studio 192 is designed to be the central hub for any project or professional studio. The onboard talkback mic can be routed to any mix. Onboard Dim and Mono options let you take control of your main mix. Listen to any mix from either headphone amp. Use the ten balanced outputs for monitor mixing, speaker switching, or both, depending on how you work. With its flexible software and abundant I/O, the Studio 192 fits into any recording and production environment.

XMAX preamps, now with remote control.

 

  • Transparent sound that won't color the tone of your instrument 
  • Control preamps from within the Studio One mixer
  • Control preamp settings via MIDI in Pro Tools, Logic, or Live and save settings with your recordings
  • The ease of digital recall with the quality of Class A analog circuitry 

 

The Studio 192 includes eight remote-controlled XMAX™ preamps, each providing high headroom, low noise, wide dynamic range, and extended frequency response.  The resulting musicality and transparency provides smooth, solid sonic reproduction.

The Studio One in Studio 192. 

Your audio interface is now an integrated extension of your recording environment. Launch Studio One and you will find full preamp control and zero-latency monitor-mix functions integrated into your recording environment. Our 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 the native Studio One Fat Channel plug-in for playback with no audible change.

Zero-latency monitor mixing and control. 

Because we can’t create the same integrated Studio One experience in every recording application, the Studio 192’s onboard features can also be controlled in UC Surface’s battle-tested interface. UC Surface has rapidly won accolades for its intuitive mixing interface that provides quick access to everything you need to create quality monitor mixes and get back to recording.

Great signal processors are a PreSonus tradition.

Adding just the right amount of effects and processing to a monitor mix can make a huge difference in a musician’s ability to experience their performance naturally. To that end, the Studio 192 includes Fat Channel processing on every analog input and the first ADAT inputs, plus a stereo reverb and delay. The result is a better performance and a better recording.

A smooth trip from analog to digital.

The Studio 192 is equipped with audiophile-grade, Burr-Brown processors to deliver top-quality digital conversion up to 192 kHz. These converters provide 118 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally. You’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.

Expandable when you need more I/O.

The DigiMax DP88 preamp/converter was designed to seamlessly extend the analog I/O on your Studio 192.  Available in early Fall 2015, the DP88 features eight digitally-controlled XMAX preamps, ADAT I/O support up to 96 kHz, direct analog inputs, DAC outputs, and word clock I/O. The DigiMax DP88 mic preamps are fully remote-controllable from UC Surface when connected via ADAT Lightpipe to your Studio 192 so that they naturally extend your analog inputs both sonically and functionally.

Get your hands on a Studio 192.

Only the Studio 192 gives you such a powerful combination of audio interface and studio command center in one rack space, with pristine audio up to 192 kHz, zero-latency effects, eight remote-controllable preamps, monitor mixing, speaker switching, headphone amps, and tight DAW integration.
