Presonus Revelator IO24 USB Interface – Music Connection Magazine

There are a lot of modern abilities integrated into the Revelator io24 interface. It’s a USB-C stereo audio interface with two XMAX-L mic preamps, a looping mixer, software that runs their Fat Channel DSP consisting of a 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, a gate and a limiter. This software uses a good-sized GUI with presets, a mixer panel, and controls for the Fat Channel and other setups. It is complete !

I liked the io24 as a compact desktop unit – it tilts slightly with two XLR Comb sockets, channel 1 and 2 selection buttons and versatile volume control for speakers, headphones and the track-mic mix. After downloading Universal Control (ver 1.21) and updating the firmware, I was ready to use it in my sessions in Pro Tools Ultimate 2022.7 under Mac OS 10.14.6. It worked great without a hitch!

Audio interface software mirrors the unit’s controls for professional-grade high-headroom mic/line preamps, a two-channel looping mixer, and extensive processing for streaming, podcasting, and music production.

Its easy-to-use mixer lets you quickly record Zoom calls or Skype interviews and add backing tracks and sound effects, live stream performances, music productions, and more. There are built-in effects like: detuner, vocoder, ring modulator, filters and delay to create crazy effects.

Unlike previous USB interfaces I’ve reviewed, you can switch to Stream Mix mode with a single click and your analog inputs, loop channels, reverb and effects are routed to the USB output.

I’m having a great time using the io24 as an audio interface connected to my iLoud powered monitors! Revelator io24 comes with Studio One Artist and Studio Magic Suite, Ableton Live Lite plus an impressive collection of virtual instruments and effect plug-ins. Revelator io24 retails for $199.95 MSRP.
