Top PreSonus Features for Your Studio!

Featuring many of the advantages that have made the StudioLive series one of the most popular mixer lineups at Sweetwater, the PreSonus Studio 192 audio interface offers you the performance and flexibility you need. This 26-in/32-out USB 3.0 audio interface comes loaded with an extensive central control section, which includes monitor management that utilizes the DSP-driven monitor mixing. The Studio 192's onboard DSP extends well beyond zero-latency monitoring, providing PreSonus's Fat Channel EQ and dynamics on every input channel. All told, you get incredible bang for your buck with the PreSonus Studio 192 USB 3.0 audio interface.

StudioLive Fat Channel processing enhances your inputs

The Studio 192 brings PreSonus's acclaimed StudioLive Fat Channel DSP to a dedicated recording platform, making it extremely easy to record well-polished sound, without extra gear or added latency. Thanks to Fat Channel processing, each of the Studio 192's input channels offers you a 3-band semi-parametric EQ plus dynamics, including gating, compression, expansion, and limiting. On top of that, the Studio 192 features DSP routing, giving you the option of zero-latency monitoring whenever you need it.

Command-center functions offer mixer-style convenience

Fat Channel processing isn't the only thing the Studio 192 borrows from the StudioLive series. If you're looking for an audio interface that offers you a more mixing-console-style workflow, then you'll love the Studio 192's command center functions. For starters, there's a talkback mic onboard that you can route to any mix, making it easy to communicate with artists via their headphone monitors. Speaking of headphones, the Studio 192 comes equipped with a pair of stereo headphone amplifiers, which make monitoring easy. Top it off with speaker switching plus Dim and Mono options, and the Studio 192 is the perfect centerpiece for any modest studio.

High-quality pres and converters meet high-speed USB 3.0

Loaded with eight remote-controllable XMAX microphone preamps, in addition to instrument and line-level inputs, the Studio 192 offers you the clear and versatile sound that's made PreSonus StudioLive mixers and audio interfaces the mainstays of project studios around the world. With eight balanced TRS outputs, two headphone outputs, and a selection of digital I/O, the 26-in/32-out Studio 192 lets you track whole bands right out of the box and provides you with plenty of room to grow. And thanks to its ultra-high-speed USB 3.0 connectivity, latency isn't an issue when you're tracking through a PreSonus Studio 192.

A beginners view

It’s not like I have a lot of experience with this sort of thing… but I have a calling that won’t leave me be. I purchased the entry level StudioOne USB kit/ interface, and it was awesome right out of the box. As I advanced, I felt I needed more depth and purchased a couple pre-amps to learn, that little USB box wasn’t designed for that sort of thing. Thus contacted Sweetwater and graduated up to the 192, as I had experience with Presonus and feel good about them. There is a learning curve for us beginners, but doable. As for the performance… It’s incredible quality. I could use this without the Avalon 737 preamp or the Studio Channel, but they compliment each other beautifully. I’ve elbow room to grow and will not likely outgrow this unit’s expandability. Last note… I had a 192 unit that did not seem to have signal coming out the first four outputs. Tech support walked me through a couple checks and once they determined I had a possible faulty unit, they shipped me another 192 without hesitation. I really appreciate the no-hassle, make-it-right attitude. Once I had the new unit, I put my faulty unit back in the box they sent with the return label... easy.


I was very shocked along with other producers who run UA.... Presonus is stepping WAY up....

Awesome Interface

I had been looking to upgrade from my old Akai EIE for a while and debating between the 192 (or any other a USB 3.0 interface) or building a new computer with a PCIE interface. I called Delvin at Sweetwater and he spent some time on the phone, asking me about my studio setup, recording needs, and future gear plans before recommending the Studio 192 and I couldnt be happier. The preamps sound great, latency is almost nonexistent, setup was relatively easy, drivers and software are super stable, and the unit itself feels really sturdy and well made. Id recommend this to anyone , especially those in need of top quality I/O with a good number of pre-amps, ins and outs. Great Purchase, and great service from the sweetwater team as always

Great Unit, Great Price

This unit is absolutely incredible. Coming from a RME 800 I thought this was going to be a downgrade in quality. I have also owned a 003 and the Apogee Ensemble. I am pleasantly surprised when we tracked and mixed our first session. Today's technology really has evened the playing field in DAW technology and Presonus (and others) have proven that you dont have to overly pay for great equipment. Latency is non-existent to the human ear with 3.0. And best of all I can use it with any operating system unlike Thunderbolt which is just for Mac. Presonus really hit the mark with this one. I will be adding 2 DigiMax DP88's in a month or two.

Amazing, Reliable Unit

This is an amazing unit. I am not a veteran studio mix/tracking engineer, however I have a clear understanding of signal chains and computer system specifications and requirements. I use this 97% of the time with Studio One 3 and Cubase 8.5 or Reaper for some other tasks. The hardware integration with Studio One is exceptional. The implementation of Fat Channels, Zero Latency (direct monitoring) and on board plugs are extremely clever. I can control the preamp levels, solos, mutes, cues and levels all within Studio One. UC Surface on a second monitor and you have complete control. I could put my 192 in a service room and never touch it. I hook it via USB3 to a I7-6700k, 32gb of 3GHz RAM, and 2 NVMe Pro SSDs. I run many plugs, bus often and have no problems with latency. None, nadda, zero, zip. Even when tracking guitars/bass via Amplitube 4 with 3.5gb of Superior Drummer 2.4 cached in memory. I/O reports (an responds) 4ms at 44.1 or 96. You have to treat computers/IO devices like a pickup truck. If you load it PROPERLY and do not over load it, it will serve you well. Load it 8' high with concrete block and you are in trouble. Be smart and take multiple trips. Same goes for these computers/interfaces. Track/Load/Unload/Render smartly and this will serve you well. I cannot speak for the clarity or quality level of the onboard preamps, however for the vocals I have tracked with my Sennheisers, it is fantastic for what I am doing. I highly recommend this interface, especially if you use Studio One. I am not rich and this is a major purchase to me but knowing what I know about it now, I would do it again in a NY second. It is extremely well made and I have been using it for 3 months (almost daily) and have NOT HAD ONE SINGLE glitch. Again, I am not using it to it's fullest potential yet, but I am confident based on current performance that it will serve me well for years to come. Sweetwater? You will not find better service and support in this galaxy. Period. But we all know that. :)
