    “You want to go home, rethink your life, and buy an io24” – Obi-Wan …probably
    This unit is frankly perfect for me and would make a very solid and versatile addition to just about any audio setup. If you’ve got a basic USB audio interface like the Focusrite Scarlett Solo, this is a fantastic upgrade. If you’re considering the GoXLR, especially the mini (as I was), you should consider this device instead. I’ll be comparing them a bit below as I speak to a few of the features that are most relevant to me.- Cross Platform: This unit is completely standards compliant, which means it works on both Windows and macOS (and I suspect Linux as well, though I haven’t tested it myself yet; I have tested both Windows 10 and macOS Big Sur and Monterey, including with M1 Apple Silicon). The GoXLR relies on their proprietary software so you’re out of luck if you use anything other than Windows.- Integrated DSP (digital signal processing): This allows you to add a filter, gate, compressor, equalizer and limiter to the inputs that run on the device itself as well as a few voice effects (Doubler, Vocoder, Ring Modulator, Comb Filter, Detuner, Delay, and Reverb). This means you get all those DSP features without having to run specialized software and waste processing time on my computer (no VST plugins or VoiceMeeter!). This fact is probably the single best feature. The GoXLR has an equalizer, compressor, gate, and the full GoXLR (not the mini) has similar voice effects (Reverb, echo, pitch shifting, gender (formant shifting), megaphone, robot, hardtune, and sampler) but both it and the Mini do not have a filter or limiter from what I can tell.- Virtual Routing and Mixes: Allows you to route different audio streams separately without any additional hardware. This is similar to what the GoXLR does. I haven’t tested this extensively but it is very similar so I think they’re about comparable.If you’d like to mount it under your desk like in the images I’ve attached to this review, please search on Thingiverse or PrusaPrints (I cannot link them directly here)My only word of warning is make sure you’re plugging this directly into your computer or if you cannot, into a very high quality hub (I discovered the hard way that my hub is apparently garbage, which is unrelated to the issues below). As with many other audio devices, especially those with DSP type features, if the unit is not getting quality power you will have issues.—————————————-Note:The above is my updated review, below is my original review. I changed my review from 1 stars to 5 stars. The main reason I gave it 1 start initially is that there was an issue on the outputs (see below) but it that has now been completely resolved; the cause was a bad batch of units. They shipped me a replacement unit which I have been using for about a week now and I can confirm that the issue is completely gone. If anyone else has this issue you just need to contact PreSonus support to get a replacement. In my opinion, PreSonus has done a great job of resolving this issue. I am satisfied with my care.—————————————-On paper this unit is perfect for me. However when I received it and gave it a try I immediately noticed a pulsing noise on the headphone output even when nothing was playing from my computer (see attached video to hear what I’m referring to). I thought the unit was DOA so I sent it back and got a replacement shipped. The second unit had the identical problem, so I opened a support ticket with PreSonus and started looking around online for similar reports. Though I did not find very many reports, which I partially chalk up to it only being on the market for a few months, I did find enough reports of the exact same issue that I think people should be wary about buying this right now. If/when it gets resolved, I will update this review accordingly.I cannot link to them here but there is a thread discussing it on the PreSonus forums (topic # 46094, “Noise coming from Revelator io24. Exchange for another unit also generates same noise :(“), and on the r/presonus subreddit (title “Revelator io24 – noisy headphone output?”), and a few comments under reviews on YouTube.PreSonus was very responsive to the ticket I opened, but after exhausting all troubleshooting options they didn’t have a solution and just said their development team will look into it and to hang tight.

    Solide für den Preis
    Insgesamt einwandfrei! Tut was es soll. Der Kopfhörerausgang liefert an meinen 250 Ohm Kopfhörer nicht wirklich viel Lautstärke. Mein Motu M2 klingt hörbar deutlich besser. Leider bekam ich es aber trotz aller Einstellungsversuche nicht störgeräuschfrei zum Laufen, sodaß ich das PreSonus Interface probieren wollte. Das Display des revelator ist tatsächlich stark unterdimensioniert und winzig, Preis-Leistung stimmt hier allerdings und es tut, was es soll. Grundsätzlich würde ich es weiterempfehlen

    Interface audio de qualité
    Cette interface audio et la suite logiciel est excellent, rien à redire.

    an incredible value with great functionality [edited review on 26 Nov 2021]
    OK, I take it all back… (see original review archived below).The good folks at PreSonus contacted me directly. They humbly admitted that the headphone and output noise issue was a grounding problem and promptly replaced my unit after receiving the return. I can say after hours of testing they have 100% solved the problem.As I mentioned, I wanted to love this product because of its built-in DSP functionality and fat channel. Now I can say that I do!I expected the headphone amp to still have a little bit of white noise at full volume (don’t they all?), but it is WICKED quiet now. The difference with the new fix is night and day. The inputs also have more life and ‘air’ to them. That could be because previously the white noise was masking the high-end, but to my ears solving the grounding issue may have also effected overall performance..?As with all PreSonus software, the DSP mixer is clearly laid out and a breeze to use. For the uninitiated, it would be advised to briefly read the manual. My favorite part is that it seamlessly integrates into their Studio One software (included). Without having to leave the program, you can dial up the IO24’s fat channel. My favorite parts are its DSP compressors: standard, tube emulated, or Class-A FET.For this price of $200, the Revelator IO24 is an incredible value. It has functionality not seen in other interfaces at this price. It can be used for high quality recording as well as live streaming with its super easy loop-back functionality. Speaking of, one reason I purchased this is to collaborate remotely writing tunes with far-away friends. With ‘original audio’ turned on in zoom, this thing is an amazing tool.Although the original defects should not have been brought to the market in the first place, a big thanks to PreSonus to listening to its customers. Companies make mistakes and kudos to them for owning up to them, then quickly offering a fix.—————————————[original review 20 Oct 2021]I wanted so much to love this new product – its built-in DSP mixer with fat channel and reverb was just what I was looking for. But I’m in disbelief that PreSonus released this thing with such a noisy headphone amp AND noisy line outs. Many others have complained about this, but it seems PreSonus is doing nothing about it thus far. I would give this thing 1 star if I wasn’t such a PreSonus fan – I write reviews for tapeop magazine and after my rave review of Studio One, am now a convert of both their software and hardware.As others have stated, lower ohm headphones have slightly less of a noise problem, but even with my 33ohm Grado SR80s, there’s a distracting pulsing noise at low volumes and significant dirty white noise at medium to high volumes. Worse still, when I connected my PreSonus eris E5 monitors to its outputs (told ‘ya I was a fan) with the exact balanced cables I use with my other interfaces, the dirty white noise was still there.This noise doesn’t get recorded, but the problem is, it’s completely disorienting. Because the io24’s noise-floor is so high, it will mask any faulty cables, mic noise, etc., potentially ruining hours of work because you couldn’t detect it.My suspicion is that PresSonus had to make a lot of compromises under the hood to make this bus powered. Just think: phantom power, hardware DSP, headphone driver, etc… all from a lil’ old USB port port. (Yes, it’s USB C, but it comes with a USB C to USB A cable. Even when connected via USB C to C, the exact same problems plague it). As a compromise, I could live with an outboard power adapter over the host of these awful problems… OR they could have done what Audient does with their beautiful sounding id14mk2: tell their customers that if you DO connect USB C to A, the performance of the headphone amp is diminished. The io24 clearly is not taking advantage of the higher power delivery of USB C.

    Powerful interface with built in DSP; Prone to interference and issues with multi-computer setups
    The IO24 is a very powerful device with a lot of potential.I used mine for about 8 months before i swapped over to a GoXLR miniComparing the two, the IO24 is better than XLR mini when it comes to EQ, Gate, compression, etc.but the biggest issue i had was with dual setups. After migrating my profile over from my desktop to my laptop there is constant issues with the device detecting the profile.You have to fight tooth and nail to get it to set correctly and when it does work i had a lot of complaints that my mic was too low.Another issue is that the interface causes a lot of interference with the mic. Any heavy load i would put through my PC it would go straight through the mic and Headphones and people would hear static when i spoke. Ground isolation didnt help anything regarding this.Other than that, its a wonder interface, but not what i needed it for (gaming/streaming) even my XLR mini gets some interference, but the IO24 was much much worseIt would be better if the XLR port was on the back with the headphone jack on the front.

    Très bon son mais…
    The media could not be loaded.

     Très bon son mais qualité de construction moyen.Je suis habitué au produits Presonus ayant déjà le “atom” drum pad et déjà essayé d’autre périphériques de la marque. Cette carte son est assez petit, elle posoede un écran très pratique pour voir les niveaux des entrés et sortie. Le son est vraiment bon, je l’utilise avec Studio One sur Windows. Côté pilote, très stable et facile à installer. Je l’ai esseye sur Windows et mac, tout est parfait.Côte pre-amp, de très bonne qualité ! Pas de bruit même en poussant. Divers plug-ins que on peut utiliser directement dans la carte son pour la chaîne d’entre xlr.Le seul bémol pour moi c’est la qualité du potard pour régler le niveau du son…Il a beaucoup de jeux de côtés quand on le turne, donc il se bloque très fréquent, ce qui rend l’expérience de régler le niveau de son très désagréable.La matière en plastique de ce bouton dénote beaucoup par rapport à la construction en métal de cette carte son.En conclusion, carte presque parfait à niveau de son, mais le seul button que vous allez utiliser plusieurs fois par jour, gâche l’expérience d’utilisation de cette carte.Je vais la garder pour l’instant, mais je vais passer bientôt sur un UAD Volt, qui quite a la qualité de construction n’a rien à voir !

    La interfaz requiere una curva de aprendizaje significativa. Los ajustes preestablecidos que vienen con ella son aceptables, pero el problema es que a menudo tengo que acceder al hub de la interfaz para desactivarlos, ya que se quedan activados cada vez que la enciendo Además, no guarda en memoria si los efectos están desactivados, lo que significa que si tengo un evento anterior en el que se utilizó un efecto, la guitarra o el piano pueden tener ese efecto activado sin que me dé cuenta hasta después de la mezcla final. En conclusión, la interfaz no es mala si se estudia en profundidad.

    Little difficult undertand audio routing
    This product is awesome, but Used a week get my brain understand the audio routing. Wish they pre sonos had better explaining how audio routing actually work. Not just setup.I am using this between OBS and zoom, audio from my mac. Routing this well. But understanding how was a nut cracker.

  9. Rufus Johnson, III

    Great device- wish it had more I/o and slightly different setup
    This is a nice device overall! I love the built in DSP that can be applied without taxing my computer. I only wish it had 4 inputs and an additional set of stereo outputs. Also, I think the inputs and outputs should be on the rear and the headphone outs should be on the front. Looks a bit messy on my desk. Other than that, great product.

    This is an amazing product… and I returned it.
    I’m doing VO and while this is amazing and 100% goes toe to toe with the likes of GoXLR. the power of the DSP is amazing. But I opted for the Elgato Wave XLR, I don’t stream. so the Latency of the VST’s isn’t too important to me. Me as a highly visual person. could not stand how the Presonus interface sat on my desk. like most audio interfaces, the XLR cable was sticking out on the front it was so awkward to place it. while the WAVE XLR has the XLR cable behind, I love the big knob, I love the simplicity of it even though I know it’s an inferior product in comparison. I felt the WAVE XLR had a better Physical UX and took up less space on my desk, and since my work station is in my room. the lights of the Presonus also really bothered me which I had to resort to covering it up every night….I really do recommend this product if how it sits on your desk doesn’t bother you.
