Overview

Now this popular recording system comes in a stylish white color design, but only for a limited engagement. Show your passion for music and recording with this limited edition audio interface from PreSonus.

The PreSonus AudioBox USB 2x2 USB recording system is an excellent solution for achieving high-quality, professional-sounding recordings no matter where you are. The AudioBox USB is a USB bus-powered audio recording interface loaded with two microphone/instrument inputs with 48V phantom power, two balanced TRS outputs, and MIDI I/O so you can stay portable without sacrificing your sound. The AudioBox USB also comes with Studio One Artist music creation and production software which has the same platform and intuitive interface as Studio One Pro but with an unlimited track count so you can start recording right out of the box.

PreSonus Audio has won numerous awards for designing quality microphone preamplifiers for all price levels. The AudioBox USB is loaded with preamps that deliver high headroom, low noise, and high gain to give you pure, full, and rich sound. Most USB recording devices operate at a 16-bit sample rate and use converters with dynamic ranges of less than 90dB which gives you a pinched and relatively small sound. The AudioBox USB, however, uses professional-grade analog to digital converters with a dynamic range of 102dB and 24-bit sample rate so that the digital conversion is big, quiet, and musical, making it one of the best sounding USB bus-powered interface on the market.

The AudioBox USB is bus-powered giving you the flexibility you need with no wall warts, line lumps, or power cables. Just plug in to a powered USB port and you are ready to record. The AudioBox USB is housed in an all-metal chassis with metal knobs able to withstand the rigors of travel and your touring adventures. Just toss the AudioBox USB in your laptop bag and mobilize your music creation and production. Whether you're recording your shows, creating a mix on the plane, or writing songs in your hotel room, the AudioBox is ready to go.

  • 2 Class A XMAX microphone/instrument preamplifiers

The softwear the comes with it is simple to use (Note: the softwear doesn't come with a manual. You need to get that online). The unit is PreSonus and it delivers the sound quality synomous with it's name. It was very easy to hook up and start recording from the start. I purchased this specifically as an interface to record karaoke performances and convert cassettes and records to cd. It has surpassed my expectations and I may even start recording my own music on it instead of the system I am currently using. If you're just starting out doing your own recording I would strongly recommend this product for both the quality of PreSonus and the ease of use the softwear program offers that comes with it.

I got this unit, and despite repeated discussions with the Presonus tech support, they were never able to get this unit working with my PC, which is new and met all requirements stated by the units specs. I uninstalled and re-installed the drivers countless times at their suggestion, and no luck. I went back and forth with them over and over, and still to this day have not been able to record one note on the Presonus USB, and tech support could not get the unit to work, or explain why it wouldn't work, and refused to refund me. I would gladly buy from Musicians Friend, but never from PreSonus again, because at the end of the day, I ended up with a paperweight. It really got my start in computer based recording off on a bad note. They marketed it as an easy to use unit, just plug and play, and it was anything but that.

    Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio Recording Interface Limited Edition:

    I'm not a pro, just a novice who loves to play. I bought the interface mainly to try out amps and pedals. I hooked it up to my iMac, added a pair of Fostex monitors, and I love it. I read too many opinionated reviews of what amps, pedals, etc I need to accomplish the sound I'm looking for. Now I have the opportunity to try before I buy. I currently am using Garage Band, which works great, but hope to move on to Studio One which comes with the interface. Look out Guitar Center there'll be orders coming!

    Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio Recording Interface Limited Edition:

    I posted "Unreliable" only because it doesn't stay connected to PreSonus' StudioOne software and I had to send it to them for warranty work. It does work very well with MainStage and Garage Band. PreSonus claims they were tracking a group of these units with this issue. Wish I new that ahead of time.....
    Not my first PreSonus product to go back for warranty work...
    Not sure if I'd recommend at this time.

      Bought the unit on sale. I like the "universal" input jack. Controls are straightforward. Integrates seamlessly with existing software on my mac. Pretty good sound. I got the unit so I could quickly record ideas for songs, and it fits that bill perfectly.

      Recieved a "USB device not recognized" error on two different computers. The driver installation program is flawed in that you have to have the unit plugged into the computer when it installs them, but the computer won't recognize the unit in order to install the drivers. Sent it back.

        Simply would not interface with my Windows 7 system (Toshiba laptop, Core i3, 4 gigs RAM). I ended up buying the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and am extremely pleased with that setup.

        Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio Recording Interface Limited Edition:

        With my MacBook Pro, it was not able to record. When I plugged my headphones in, I heard my guitar and microphone, but my laptop did not show that it was connected. It can't be my laptop, because I bought a cheap $5 audio connector off of eBay and it worked. I just sent this item back for a refund.

          Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio Recording Interface Limited Edition:

          Good product, works well. Took about 4 hours to setup as it took 3:59 to figure out that the USB cord was defective right out of the box. Last thought was to run down to the computer store for a new cord and that ended up working.

          Probably wouldn't buy another Presonus product because of that. But the Audiobox works well once you toss away their defective cable they clearly tried to save money on.

              Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio Recording Interface Limited Edition:

              The Presonus AudioBox USB is all you need! If you need the extra pre monitor mix with the VSL software then you may want to look into the 22VSL. In addition the 22VSL has a usb 2.0 interface for better latency and VSL monitoring. If your debating between the Audiobox and the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2...get the AudioBox! Why...the Scarlett lacks MIDI and the additional mixer playback to allow you to hear either more input or computer audio...it is vital to have a great premix for monitoring. Although the Audio has USB 1.1, it can still give you great latency with 256 buffer/20ms or below! Your best audio DAW and driver performance will come from reducing your OS resources decreasing CPU core and RAM utilization. The Presonus AudioBox for this price is unbeatable...the preamps are class A XMAX that are like Focusrite, Yamaha D-Pre's, or Mackie Onyx preamps. I researched them all and I am happy with both of my Presonus AudioBox USB boxes! Plus you get the StudioOne V2 Artist DAW for free with up to 5 activations...what other software does that!
