Take the tour.
The Studio 1824c audio interface features USB-C™ compatible computer connectivity and records up to 18 simultaneous inputs, including two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with XMAX mic preamps and +48V phantom power. Digital inputs include eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O (four channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF I/O. In addition to the main L/R outputs, you get eight DC-coupled line-level outputs that can send control voltages. You also get two headphone outputs. A built-in MIDI interface enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface.
The Studio 1824c’s 18-in, 20-out I/O configuration provides considerable versatility. With eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O (four channels at 96 kHz), you can expand the Studio 1824c 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, Mono, and level controls, you get eight balanced 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 four stereo near-zero latency monitor mixes using Studio One or UC Surface. A BNC word clock output enables synchronization with other digital devices. And of course the Studio 1824c is a MIDI interface.

I seriously have no idea how PreSonus is developing hardware at this level, bundling it with a ton of valuable freebies, even throwing in an entry-level edition of a heavenly DAW, and then selling the whole caboodle for pennies on the dollar.Dana Gumbiner, Tape Op
