PRESONUS 192 TAKES COMMAND
The Studio 192 is not just a USB 3.0 audio interface, thanks to some nifty console ‘centre section’ features, Presonus likes to think of it as a Studio Command Centre. The new 26 x 32 interface records at up to 192k and combines eight digitally controlled XMax Class A solid-state mic preamps and Burr-Brown converters (for 118dB of dynamic range) with StudioLive Fat Channel signal processing. The command centre features are in the ability to manage speaker switching and talkback (with onboard condenser microphone) and features main mix mute, mono, and dim.
Presonus’ UC Surface touch-ready control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad is included, for management of all Studio 192 functions and creation of eight stereo monitor mixes with full Fat Channel processing on every analogue input, plus reverb and delay.
If you use the Studio One DAW you’ll find full preamp control and zero-latency monitor-mix integration.
PreSonus’ remote controllable XMax solid-state preamps use the same circuitry as the StudioLive AI consoles, but add a separate digital volume-control circuit for digital recall without affecting the sound quality.
The Studio 192 I/O includes: two front-panel mic/instrument inputs and six rear-panel mic/line inputs; 16-channel ADAT optical in and out (eight channels at 88.1 or 96k); coaxial, stereo S/PDIF I/O; and BNC wordclock I/O. You get eight balanced TRS outputs, balanced stereo main outputs, and two headphone amplifiers with independent outputs and level controls.
