The PreSonus Studio 68c is a 6x6 USB Type-C audio/MIDI interface offering high-resolution conversion and a powerful software package for vocalists, musicians, and podcasters in home/project studios and mobile setups. Connect mic-, instrument-, or line-level sources via four XLR-1/4" combo inputs, each utilizing its own gain control and XMAX Class-A mic preamp with selectable phantom power. Operate at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution without sacrificing channel count or 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz sample rates with 4x4 I/O functionality.

The Studio 68c has four balanced 1/4" line outputs. The first two are fed by a dedicated level control for use with a pair of active monitors. A 1/4" TRS stereo headphone output with a front-panel volume knob accommodates a set of headphones. With the supplied breakout cable, the rear-panel 9-pin connector provides S/PDIF and MIDI I/O to simply hookup stereo digital audio gear and MIDI equipment such as a controller, synthesizer, or sound module.

The Studio 68c includes USB cables for easy connectivity to your compatible macOS- or Windows-equipped computer. It is powered via a 12 VDC power adapter. Also supplied is a software bundle featuring the Studio One Artist DAW and the Studio Magic plug-in suite—a slew of creative tools for producers, engineers, songwriters, and more.
