Shipping now for $199.95 / £165, the PreSonus Revelator io24 USB-C audio interface integrates high-headroom mic preamps, a two-channel loopback mixer and extensive processing, promising to deliver polished, professional-sounding results for streaming, podcasting and music production.
In fact, PreSonus claims that the Revelator io24 is the only audio interface specifically designed for both recording and streaming. Fully embracing today’s adaptation to more remote working than ever, its easy-to-use mixer lets users quickly record Zoom calls or Skype interviews and add backing tracks and sound effects for podcasts, live stream performances and music production.
Users can engage Stream Mix mode with the click of a button, at which point their complete mix analogue inputs, loopback channels, reverb and effects are routed to the USB output. From there, users can easily send it to their streaming software.
Two analogue mic/instrument/line inputs with PreSonus’ professional grade XMAX-L microphone preamps (which can be stereo linked), present the Revelator io24 as a high-quality production frontend.
Users also get two balanced 1/4-inch line outputs, a high-powered headphone output, professional metering and zero-latency monitoring – not to mention they can record up to 24-bit, 96 kHz audio to the included Studio One Artist or other recording and production software.
But the real magic starts with the Revelator io24’s simple loopback mixer, which makes it easy to add backing tracks to live stream performances, or conferences in a Zoom caller to a podcast.
