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.

Studio 192 Has Changed The Way I Do Sound

I recently just switched over from the 1818VSL since the new OSX doesn't support the VSL software, which is what I was using for live purposes for my in ear setup and running loops etc. Loved the 1818VSL, but now that things are updated so frequently I decided I needed something that would allow me to do what I do week and and week out, but still had the same feel in way of GUI. The Studio 192 has changed my life. No only is the sound from just the preamps amazing and will blow you away, but the fact that I don't have to even think about what the last preset I used was. Everytime I open up the UC Surface Control DSP it remembers every gain structure for each input and output and master volume. IT'S FREAKING AMAZING!! I also tried it with Studio One 3.0 and couldn't believe how effortless intergrated they work together and allo me to recall each session exactly how I was recording it (i.e. what my gain structure was for each song on all inputs) the thing just pops and remembers everything!! I've always been a HUGE PreSonus fan and user, but this has changed the way I do sound and life when it comes to music. Thank you PreSonus for making such an amazing interface that kills all the competition out there to date. Love the convertors and the 192khz is amazing!!

PreSonus Studio 192

This unit replaced my trusty PreSonus 1818vsl. The two reasons I upgraded was to achieve better resolution and lower latency. The result was 8 channels live at 32/192 with zero latency. I doubt that any other DAW could put up those kind of numbers. It just gets out of the way and lets musicians be musicians. My set up is mobile so that I can capture the room (sorry, I'm all about the room) along with the performance. The USB 3.0 interface and fat channel processing are significant improvements over the 1818vsl. To be fair this unit requires an up to date computer rig (USB 3.0, 16 GB ram. external hard drive, etc.) to get all of the upgraded benefits. Well, back to the studio.

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.

Studio 192 and DP88

I have been operating an advanced home studio for almost a decade and have to say that the recent addition of the Presonus Studio 192 and DP88 has been the best investment I have made ever. I was looking for roughly 16 inputs with the option to expand in the future, but at the same time to get the best sound quality I could afford. Luckily I came across a blind test that compared the 192 to the UAD and Apogee interfaces and unbelievably to my ears the 192 beat the UAD and was almost impossible to hear the difference between the Apogee and 192. It was that moment I simply ordered the 192 / DP88. After owning this combo for a couple months and using them in full band recordings I can say they are all I could have hoped for. Sound quality is impeccable and the integration with Presonus Studio one is amazing. Being able to track with Zero latency inside your DAW is virtually unheard of, and on top of that being able to give every musician an iPad to individually control their headphone mix is the icing on the cake. Stability has been absolutely perfect with not a single dropout or crash of any type on my iMac.Presonus has raised the bar with these interfaces, I'm sure other companies are looking at them trying to figure out how to catch up!
