The full-featured, ultra-high-def, USB-C audio interface.


The Studio 1824c 192 kHz USB-C audio interface is ideal for producers interested in recording full bands, including multi-channel drums. It records up to 18 simultaneous inputs and features 8 XMAX Class A mic preamps, as well as MIDI I/O. Its 20 outputs offer flexible routing with zero-latency DSP-based monitor mixing and control-room integration with included Studio One Artist music production software and UC Surface control software.

The Studio 1824c audio interface features USB-C computer connectivity and records up to 18 simultaneous inputs, including two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with XMAX mic preamps and +48V phantom power. Digital inputs include eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O (four channels at 96 kHz) and stereo S/PDIF I/O. In addition to the main L/R outputs, you get eight DC-coupled line-level outputs that can send control voltages. You also get two headphone outputs. A built-in MIDI interface enables connection to a keyboard, sound module, or control surface.

I recently purchased this to replace my audiobox ione, I am new(ish) to home recording so I wanted something versatile and with enough inputs to track the basic rock music instruments I use at home. This does that so well, was instantly recognized by my laptop and other than a small issue updating the drivers (had to change the usb port for it to work) I had no issues. It doesn't come with rack mount screws which I learned when I went to install it in my desk so be aware of that!

Hello how to connect 2 1824c's together. using Universal Control 4.1 Connect optical cable on main unit in to second unit out Connect optical cable on second unit in to man unit out I don't think you need both for just recording, but I use both Start computer with both 1824c's connected but turned off. with UC (Universal Control) running. Start your main 1824c. (note serial number in bottom right-hand corner) mine ends in (8). let light flash red, blue, red, blue. you can wait till the light settles on purple, but I never do. Set main 1824c to ADAT. Start your second 1824c. (note serial number in bottom right-hand corner) this one ends in (4). Both lights should flash for a second then turn blue. Set second 1824c to Internal {I use the serial numbers to keep track of which ones which. in UC} Before you can use both you must set the mixer in UC. From UC click the second 1824c (S#4 for me) {the one set to Internal} the mixer will come up. Set all faders from 1 to 8 to 0db or as close as you can get it, for me it's 0.01 db. [very tedious and a pain in the ass]. And set balances as so: 1,3,5,7. to left and 2,4,6,8. to right. Then in the mix section ADAT 1/2 set fader 1 to 0db. balance left. ADAT 1/2 set fader 2 to 0db. balance right. ADAT 3/4 set fader 3 to 0db. balance left. ADAT 3/4 set fader 4 to 0db. balance right. ADAT 5/6 set fader 5 to 0db. balance left. ADAT 5/6 set fader 6 to 0db. balance right. ADAT 7/8 set fader 7 to 0db. balance left. ADAT 7/8 set fader 8 to 0db. balance right. You should be good to go. Just remember every time you start. Start computer, the main 1824c and let light blink red, blue, a couple times then start the second one.

I’ve been using this unit for just more than a year now. Sound quality, reliability and ease of use are all exceptional. Mostly used for tracking live drums but also occasionally for vocals, guitars and midi. Very satisfied.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
