I love it!!!

I love it!!! The awesome customer service that Sweetwater provided ( & still is) Made my purchase 10 times better!!! I will definitely be using them as my go to for necessary studio gear & software purchases.

Mac and OSX Lion READY!

I loved that I only needed to plug the PreSonus AudioBox USB into my Mac running OSX Lion and it was instantly fully usable! This unit replaced a Tascam unit that Tascam refuses to support any longer and am very pleased with the PreSonus unit. I hear comments that the inputs are "Hot", but if you read the instructions and balance your input with the Mixer knob, as well as adjust the mic/instrument input signal, the result is awesome. I use Apple Logic and get crystal clear recording results and much improved overall sound quality over the Tascam interface. This is a great product for it's pricing and I have no negative issues whatsoever with the PreSonus AudioBox USB unit. Does what it says, no install other than plugging the unit into the Mac, a few quick adjustments... what more could you possibly ask for in a unit whether it cost $150 or $1,500? The PreSonus unit is like my Mac... it just works!

We used this unit to set up a small recording area for streaming music and live vocal. Setup is easy and it works great! Sweeteater is the place to buy, great customer service and tech support if you ever need it.
