Manufacturer's Description

Built to create.

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.

Your studio command center.

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.

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, 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. Check it out at your favorite PreSonus dealer.

Features:

  • Simultaneously stream up to 26 inputs and 32 outputs at 48 kHz — or 8x14 at 192 kHz.
  • Take advantage of award-winning StudioLive™ Fat Channel processing on every analog input with ZERO LATENCY monitoring.
  • Use the Studio 192 as your studio command center with monitor mixing, speaker switching and two independent headphone outputs
  • Remote control your XMAX™ preamps and create zero latency monitor mixes right from UC Surface for iPad, Mac and PC.
  • Expand your I/O by adding up to two DigiMax DP88 8-channel A/D/A converter with remote-controllable preamps (coming Fall 2015).
