PreSonus Releases New ioStation 24c Audio Interface and Production Controller

 ioStation 24c The new PreSonus ioStation 24c audio interface and production controller delivers the tools needed for both audio recording and DAW control in a compact, ergonomic desktop design that will fit into any home studio. The new interface/controller combines the recording capabilities of the Studio Series USB-C 24-bit, 192 kHz audio interfaces with the functionality of the best-selling FaderPort USB production controller.

The ioStation 24c features two of PreSonus’ XMAX Class A analog mic preamps, along with high-definition 24-bit, 192 kHz analog-to-digital converters, for professional-quality recording and monitoring. The XMAX preamp is known for its high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs and vibrant overall sound.

The ioStation 24c provides transport controls, a 100-mm touch-sensitive, motorized fader and the unique Session Navigator section, which offers access to eight mission-critical functions for maximum flexibility. Use the large 360-degree encoder button and companion buttons to edit and mix with greater efficiency and speed. Scroll through your timeline, using the encoder or work measure by measure with the arrow buttons; zoom in and out on the timeline with the encoder and make your tracks larger or smaller; navigate and drop markers; and maintain constant control of your main level. A footswitch input enables hands-free start/stop (footswitch not included).

Streamlined workflow and support for the Mackie Control and HUI protocols make it fast and easy to control Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Cubase, Ableton Live and more. Deep integration with included PreSonus Studio One Artist will let you mix at lightning speed. To top it off, in addition to Studio One Artist, the ioStation 24c comes with PreSonus’ Studio Magic Plug-in Suite.

The ioStation 24c is available at $299.95, and all the details are here.
