Back in 2016, PreSonus introduced their new flagship audio interface, Studio 192.

The features and styling have now trickled down to a new range of portable, high quality, smaller interfaces – including Studio 68.

You get: two front-panel inputs (mic and switchable line/instrument, via combi connectors) with +48V phantom power for condenser mics. Gain control for each input is also on the front panel, along with LED metering for input / output, and you get a headphone control level.

Flip it around, and there is your second pair of mic/line inputs (also on combi connectors). There are 4x line outputs, via TRS, being Main L&R output, addition line outputs (labelled 3 & 4). Also on the rear is your headphone output, along with the break-out plug for S/PDIF and MIDI I/O.

Or... we could just go with what PreSonus has to say about it:

"An excellent choice for producers and musicians working in small studios, the Studio 68 provides the right I/O and features for recording and performing. Equipped with four of our famous XMAX Class A preamps, high-end converters, and cue mix monitoring with an ear-bleedingly loud headphone amp, it delivers professional quality audio and the connections you need to create your next hit and play it at your next gig with 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution. A complete, all-in-one recording solution, the Studio 68 comes with PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® Artist DAW software for Mac® and Windows®."
