You don’t need to sacrifice mobility for connectivity. Take amazing studio-quality sound and flexible input options on the road with the PreSonus Studio 1810c audio interface. With four of PreSonus’ lauded XMAX analog mic preamps, pristine instrument preamps, balanced line-level inputs, and an ADAT input to add 8 more channels whenever you need them, the Studio 1810c is a compact recording powerhouse housed in a rugged, roadworthy chassis. A complete, all-in-one recording package, Studio One® Artist music production software Studio One® Artist music production software is included with the Studio 1810c, offering unlimited tracking with tight control-room integration.
World-class recording software included.
Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus UC Surface control software for macOS®, Windows®, iPad®, and Android™ tablet and Studio One Artist music production software, the Studio 1810c audio interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software. Easy to learn, Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted by the tools. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content right from your production environment—including powerful extensions for Studio One like the CTC-1 Console Shaper and Presence XT Editor.
The Studio 1810c integrates tightly with included Studio One® Artist music production software and free UC Surface control software. The Studio 1810c features an onboard DSP mixer that can be controlled from within Studio One Artist. Set individual levels and pan using Studio One's unique Z-Mix feature to create low-latency monitor mixes without leaving your recording environment. You can remote-control monitor mixes using free PreSonus UC Surface touch-control software—or upgrade with the Studio One Remote add-on ($9.99 U.S.) and remote control your entire production environment from your iPad.
The Studio 1810c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and four of PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX mic preamps are known the world over for their ability to deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound so you’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.
For over 20 years, PreSonus has been a leader in high quality microphone design for audio interfaces. The Studio 1810c interface includes eight custom-design, high-voltage, Class A XMAX preamps with discrete components for accuracy and transparency.
XMAX preamplifiers are built with three key elements:
Class A. Class A circuits have no crossover distortion and deliver purer, clearer, and more musical results than the Class AB designs that are found in many preamps.
High Voltage. The XMAX preamplifier runs on power rails of 30V. Most off-the-shelf, op-amp-based designs run on power rails of 10V to 18V. Higher-voltage power rails deliver more headroom, deeper lows, smoother highs, and a richer overall sound.
Discrete components. We only use genuine transistors, resistors, and capacitors rather than use op-amps that can add noise, coloration, and harshness to a signal. Our discrete design delivers ultra-low noise and transparency.
The net result of the XMAX preamp design is high headroom, low noise, wide dynamic range, extended frequency response, and—most important—musicality and transparency.
Professional tools make any job easier. That’s why we included professional input and output metering on the Studio 1810c, allowing you to keep an eye on your input and mix levels while running your session. Easy-to-use DSP monitor mixing lets you create four discrete mixes for you and three others. Two pairs of outputs afford two different stereo mixes. The Cue A/B button allows you to toggle between each mix while listening in on headphones, great for dialing in monitor mixes from the control room.
The Studio 1810c’s I/O configuration provides considerable versatility. With 8 channels of ADAT Optical input (4 channels at 96 kHz), you can expand the Studio 1810c with an 8-channel mic preamp with ADAT conversion, such as our premium-quality DigiMax DP88. In addition to L/R main outputs with front-panel Mute and level controls, you get four line outputs for monitor mixing plus stereo S/PDIF digital I/O and two stereo headphone outputs. All line-level outputs are DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages. The onboard DSP lets you create two stereo near-zero latency monitor mixes using Studio One or UC Surface. And of course the Studio 1810c is a MIDI interface.
Wherever the sound takes you.
When you need to be ready to create professional recordings anywhere, the Studio 1810c has you covered with superior mic preamps and expandable inputs to give you the world-class results you want. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the Studio 1810c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.
