Over the years I have had the opportunity to use and abuse a number of interfaces from PreSonus. While they vary in size and specification greatly, in order to offer the right tools for the right job, they all share a common trait. No matter what your budget is, or your I/O requirements, any PreSonus audio interface is going to be built like the proverbial. Designed for use by audio professionals and home users alike, every device released by PreSonus is always ready for the task at hand and is tough enough to handle any job you want to throw at it. As such, it came as no surprise when I unboxed the new Studio 24 interface this month that I found the unit to be built like a brick.
There comes a point where you realise you don’t need all the bells and whistles to complete a certain task. Often, you just need a simple rig that works. For those of you looking for a smaller, more portable audio interface as a backup or secondary device to your bigger rig, and for anyone looking for a first interface that will go the distance, this is certainly worth a look. It’s a fairly compact box, but is still housed in a solid metal chassis with very little protruding from the box, making it ideal for travel.
Hits and Misses
Tough, sturdy and compact housing
Included MIDI I/O
Great quality for budget price
Pot labelling a little unclear
