Get World Class Recording For Your Home Studio With The Presonus Studio 68c Audio Interface

An excellent choice for small bands, producers, and small and mid-sized studios, the Studio 68c 6-in, 6-out, USB-C audio interface records at up to 192 kHz. You get two mic/line/instrument and two mic/line inputs, all with PreSonus XMAX mic preamps, plus DC-coupled line outputs and MIDI I/O, and is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections

The included PreSonus Studio One Artist music production software works seamlessly with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software, enabling you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted.

The 6-in, 6-out Studio 68c audio interface features USB-C connectivity and includes 2 combo mic/instrument/line inputs and 2 combo mic/line inputs with +48V phantom power for condenser mics, plus S/PDIF digital I/O. All four ¼-inch TRS, line-level outputs are DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages.

The Cue Mix A/B function lets you toggle between two mixes while monitoring through headphones-perfect for DJs and to listen in on a performer's monitor mix. The Studio 68c's built-in MIDI interface enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface.
