Professional tools. Professional results.
Created with the needs of DJs and electronic musicians in mind, the 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, and 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 start creating right away.

World-class recording software included.
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 upgrade to Studio One Professional to add mastering, Mix Engine FX, and much more.

Superior sound.
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.

Stress-free recording.
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.

Wherever sound takes you.
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 combines with included Studio One Artist to provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.

Apple Silicon, iOS, and iPadOS compatibility—standard.
The PreSonus Studio 26c is natively compatible with Apple Silicon-based Mac computers*, as well as iOS and iPadOS devices, including iPad Pro, iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, and iPhone. Because it's USB class-compliant, there are no special drivers or applications to download and install. You'll be able to produce on the go—everything from podcasts to folk rock to trap—wherever sound takes you.
