More Revelations From Presonus
Two new Revelator home studio/podcasting products from Presonus. Strap yourselves in:
The new Revelator Dynamic USB vocal microphone and Revelator io44 audio interface combine studio-grade audio recording quality with powerful onboard processing and a simple software-controlled mixer that can blend sound from multiple applications for monitoring and live streaming.
Like its sibling, the Revelator USB large-diaphragm condenser microphone, the Revelator Dynamic mic offers easy-to-use presets that let recording vocalists quickly customise their sound and create a polished mix for studio recording, live streaming, and podcasting. The Revelator Dynamic utilises the same custom-built, dynamic microphone capsule found in the fan-favourite PreSonus PD-70 broadcast microphone. Like the PD-70, the Revelator Dynamic is designed to capture the human voice cleanly and clearly by eliminating breathiness, unwanted reverberance, and even ambient room noise. This allows the Revelator Dynamic to be set up in virtually any space, capturing the perfect vocal take, every time, allowing home recordists to set up their studio just about anywhere.
Following up on the success of the Revelator io24 audio interface and featuring a compact, the Revelator io44 features a stylish design that fits in the palm of your hand. The new four-in, two-out audio interface is bus-powered via its USB-C compatible jack and can serve as the heart of an ultra-mobile recording studio as well as the core of a streaming rig. The Revelator io44 features a combo mic/instrument input with the clear, clean sound of PreSonus’ famed XMAX-L mic preamp, as well as a ⅛-inch line-level stereo input for DJ mixers and mobile devices making it perfect for electronic musicians, guitarists, and streamers. A high-powered, ⅛-inch stereo headphone output works with regular headphones and TRRS gaming headsets (mic in, stereo out). Balanced ¼-inch stereo main outputs are provided to connect to professional studio monitors.
Revelator-series USB microphones and audio interfaces offer extensive onboard signal processing, with the same Fat Channel EQ, compressor, gate, and limiter algorithms found in PreSonus’ award-winning StudioLive Series III mixers, plus reverb and voice effects like delay, vocoder, and more. Professionally crafted presets deliver polished sound with a single click. Additional presets emulate concert halls, AM radio, robotic voices, and more. PreSonus’ UC Surface software for macOS and Windows provides full access to the processor settings allowing users to create their own unique sound and save them as presets for instant access.
Every Revelator-series product offers a software-controlled mixer that makes it easy to blend audio from three different applications at once to add backing tracks, Zoom calls, or gameplay and create custom mixes with all available analog inputs while monitoring at near-zero latency and simultaneously streaming and recording with up to 24-bit, 96kHz precision. For those wanting to go live on a mobile device, every Revelator-series product connects directly to iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices. Because settings are stored onboard the hardware, every saved preset is accessible right from the physical button, so users can take their favorite voice effect presets with them wherever they go.
While compatible with virtually any recording software, Revelator-series products come with a complete suite of software and are ready to record right out of the box. Like just about every PreSonus audio interface, each Revelator comes with PreSonus’ powerful, yet easy-to-use Studio One Artist production and recording software for macOS and Windows. The Studio Magic software suite is also included and features more than US$1000 worth of effects, instruments, sounds and more. The Revelator Dynamic USB microphone also includes a sturdy, extendable desktop mic stand.
The PreSonus Revelator Dynamic USB microphone and Revelator io44 USB audio interface are available for around A$299 each.
