Quality Build
KMickP 19.11.2020
I upgraded to the 1824C, having used a basic Presonus audio interface for 5 years, as my skills around Studio One have increased and my requirements are increasing as my knowledge improves. I use the interface in my home studio to produce radio/cd quality music and the fact that it used the same DAW & software and the fact that unlike a lot of the rackmount products, did not bust the bank!
The first impression is that 1824c is a quality product, solidly built and with great basic features. I don’t need 8 inputs as I generally record in stereo, so only use 2 at a time but, the others are there if required in future to record more instruments at the same time. Right out of the box it slotted into my rack & was up and running immediately as I have a Presonus user account so log in, register the product & you are all set!
The only advice I would give is that when you upgrade from Studio One, finish current projects/songs before upgrading as even though it is “compatible”, there are issues which will have you tearing your hair out! Presonus Studio is not exactly intuitive but you figure it out and even though there are copious online manuals, learning by doing will be the route most will take!
So great product but be prepared for some messing around at the outset, mainly due to software/ system issues!

Thanks to the Thomann guys who cleared up a couple of questions I had prior to placing the order, which arrived in a couple of days, so great service as usual.


Perfect audio interface for a small studio
PolyTrigger 02.04.2021
I have been searching for a professional audio interface with a decent amount of line inputs (since I have a lot of hardware synths) and a trustworthy upgrade for my Steinberg UR-44.
After the necessary research I ended up with the Presonus because the specifications were attractive and it did the job "on paper".
I opted for a USB 3.0 interface. There was some doubt on going for the Quantum 48/48 range but that is (way) more expensive and to be honest: after using the Studio 1824c for a while now, it does its job perfectly.

The provided software is easy to configure (channel routing).
Build quality is excellent, this is professional equipment!

Low-latency "promise" is excellent. I haven't got a beast of a computer but once you get it set up right, the interface works like a charm.

I would highly recommend it over other interfaces because it is a modern looking interface, has excellent build quality and does what is says it does.


My third audio interface and probably the best!
Ady 08.01.2020
I need 8 channels to record my drums. This is the best affordable audio interface specifically due to my purpose and YES it does. It comes with lots of features and software especially the Studio One Artist (which I upgraded to professional). It has two headphone inputs which is great. It works perfectly with it's own DAW.


multiple assembly issue - probably coincidence?
mrataj 19.05.2020
It's a great piece of gear for that price! I think it's comparable to some way more expensive stuff. Only it came with rattling parts inside the gear - not once, but 2 times in a row once Thoman (big thanks, Thoman love!) directly exchange the pieces for a new one. Now all ok, great pro sound results (writing this with my UAD Apollo 8 next to it)
