The portable ultra-high-def USB-C™ compatible audio interface.

Take a look at these videos for the Presonus Studio 68c ... Video 1.

Powerful, flexible production tools.

Amazing sound quality with four of PreSonus’ famed XMAX analog mic preamps, plus professional metering and monitoring features make the Studio 68c ideal for small productions, electronic artists, and bands looking to take charge of their recordings. Two stereo outputs provide flexible output options. A powerful headphone amp with A/B switching lets you listen in to either mix, ideal for live performance applications. With a Studio One Artist license included with registration, the Studio 68c is an audio production powerhouse right out of the box.

World-class recording software included.

Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One Artist music production software, the Studio 68c 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.

Superior sound.

The Studio 68c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and four of PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX mic preamps are known the world over for their ability to deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound so you’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.

Stress-free recording.

Professional tools make any job easier. That’s why we included professional input and output metering on the Studio 68c, 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. Plus, all four ¼-inch TRS, line-level outputs are DC coupled, enabling them to send control voltages. The Cue A/B button allows you to toggle between each mix while listening in on headphones, great for live performance and studio alike.

​Wherever the sound takes you.

When you’re upgrading your performance rig or building a custom production studio, the Studio 68c will give you clear, clean, ultra-high-def sound with the professional tools you need to achieve world-class results. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the Studio 68c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.

Make your own magic.

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).
