PreSonus Audio Interface Inc. Studio One Artist + Studio Magic Plugin Suite & Ableton Live Lite Software

Created with the needs of DJs and electronic musicians in mind, the PreSonus Studio 26c delivers excellent audio quality with professional metering and flexible monitoring options. With two of PreSonus’ pristine XMAX-L mic preamps for recording vocals and custom samples; both MIDI I/O and line inputs for your favorite synths; plus professional input and output metering so you can keep track of your recording and performance levels, the Studio 26c delivers amazing sound quality in a rugged, compact form factor. A complete recording studio right out of the box, the Studio 26c audio interface comes with a complimentary license of PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® Artist music production software, so you can get creating right away.

Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One Artist music production software, the Studio 26c interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software. Easy to learn, Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted by the tools or hemmed in with track limitations. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content right from your production environment. And when you’re ready for more features, you can purchase add-ons or even an upgrade to Studio One Professional to add mastering, Mix Effects, and much more.

The Studio 26c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX-L mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX-L mic preamps are designed to perform optimally on bus-powered audio interfaces, allowing you to take great sound with you wherever you record.

Professional tools make any job easier. That’s why we included professional input and output metering on the Studio 26c, allowing you to keep an eye on your input and mix levels when you’re recording by yourself. An easy to use direct monitor control blends the analog input signals with playback from your computer, simplifying monitoring. Two pairs of outputs afford two different stereo mixes. The Cue A/B button allows you to toggle between each mix while listening in on headphones, great for live performance and studio alike.

Whether you're just getting into music production or looking to upgrade your DJ rig, the Studio 26c will give you clear, clean, ultra-high-def sound in a bus-powered, rugged unit. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the Studio 26c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.

At PreSonus, we want to make sure that our audio interfaces come with everything you need to craft your own mesmerizing spells in the studio. That’s why we include Studio One Artist with every audio interface product we make. But here in Louisiana, we have a word: lagniappe. It means "a little something extra," and it’s in that spirit that we also include the Studio Magic Suite of software with our audio interface products.

The 2020 Studio Magic is a major step up from the 2019 edition, and includes Ableton Live Lite, tutorials from Melodics, 6 virtual instruments, and 9 effects plug-ins in VST, AU, and AAX formats... all unlocked for use inside Studio One Artist with a retail value of over $1000 (US).
