PreSonus fused their FaderPort and 24c into an audio interface/production controller. Let’s find out if it knows how to Linux.
The PreSonus ioStation 24C is class compliant so no additional drivers are needed.
The PreSonus ioStation 24C will function like any other sound device in pavucontrol.
Select the ALSA driver to connect your PreSonus ioStation 24C to the Jack server.
While many kinds of audio latency metrics exist, one useful and well-understood metric is round-trip latency; the time it takes for an audio signal to enter the input of a device, get processed, and exit the output.
Measurements were taken with jack_iodelay.
This puts the PreSonus ioStation 24C just below the TASCAM 16X08.

What we have here is two of PreSonus’s budget options fused into one. The 24C is a serviceable audio interface and the FaderPort is a (mostly) functional control surface.
Unfortunately the PreSonus ioStation 24C does not function correctly in Reaper without Reasonus. A windows only extension.
However, give it a look if you use Ardour / Mixbus on Linux and need a basic control surface + serviceable audio interface.
