Best of all, the AudioBox 44VSL comes with PreSonus Studio One Artist DAW software for instant music-making action.

PreSonus AudioBox 44VSL USB Audio Interface at a Glance:
Exceptional audio quality
From the XMAX microphone preamps to the high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz converters, the PreSonus AudioBox 44VSL's audio quality belies its price. XMAX preamps run on 30V power rails, while most budget preamps run on 10V-18V. The higher voltage gives you more headroom and a richer overall sound. Whether you're plugging in your favorite studio microphone or recording your guitar or bass direct, you'll love the results you get with the AudioBox 44VSL.
Virtual StudioLive software for low-latency monitoring with effects
The included Virtual StudioLive software gives your AudioBox 44VSL the ability to provide reverb and delay effects for your monitor mixes, with near-zero latency. On top of that, the Virtual StudioLive software gives you the same Fat Channel compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ, and highpass filter from the acclaimed PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer. Artists perform better when they're listening to a top-notch headphone mix, and the AudioBox 44VSL makes it easy.
PreSonus Studio One Artist DAW included
The AudioBox 44VSL comes with PreSonus StudioOne Artist DAW software, ready for you to start making music right out of the box. With unlimited recording tracks, an easy-to-use interface, and over 4GB of third-party content to get you started, you'll be amazed at what you can produce with this DAW software - and it's free with your AudioBox 44VSL!

This is my first significant upgrade & my first piece of Presonus hardware and I must say,I am shocked at the sheer build quality,sonic fidelity and the versatility of this magnificent interface!
The preamps certainly live up to Preonus's reputation,as recording vocals clean, is a rare pleasure,since a smattering of reverb is all that's needed..to make your vocals stand out in a mix.
There are no restrictions with this unit in terms of monitoring,as regardless of the situation in my DAW,my external audio source is never cut off.
This unit works seamlessly with your PC,yet it also works independently as a stand alone mixer...as I can listen to my Kurzweil PC3LE6 without my computer powered up,which is a new concept to me.
For some reason,the bright blue face & the light gray appearance as it's portrayed online,makes this box seem like cheap plastic...but it's nothing of the sort.
It's actually metal throughout and has a beautiful brushed navy blue face on it!
The front controls are very smooth & precise and are hermetically sealed,which is quite impressive for the coin!
Based on everything I've researched and have previously owned,the 44VSL offers the most pristine features & value...which is unbeatable and unbelievable! close [-]

by Allan Wolfe from Houston, TXI'm truly blown away with this integrated system.

* Very quiet.
* Preamps are warm without being balmy.
* Software integration (VSL) works as advertised. ... read more [+]Having the ability to record dry but send effects back to the monitor/headphones is really good.
* Studio One V2 integration works well. Still learning the software, but really like the quality of the software, plugability (VST, AU and Rewire). The Melodyne is a real sweetner that sets this apart from others.
* Well worth the price for the the excellent quality of both hardware and software.
* Software packaging and licensing was really confusing. I got an Studio One V1 media with a V2 license key. Nothing described the license as being V2. Had to download all the GB of software. The downloading took forever. Seemingly with V2, no help reference guide in the installation. I resorted to buying groove3.com video for learning S1v2.
* No carrying/protective bag or case. Really needs it since it is a portable solution.
Knowing now what I know, would I have bought something else? No. Other than the irritant with software installation and documentation, I'd buy this solution all over again. This is truly a well integrated solution that is flexible in of itself or to integrate into other DAW software soltuions. close [-]
