Audio Box USB

Was useing Sonar and had multiple issues. This product has no probllems . After driver and Software were installed a new world opened up for me . Warning, Lightning fried my M audio at the USB port ruining the computer. Pre Sonus system fixed all. Great product, price and performance.
Music background: Retired from giggin, Home studio production now.

Best Bang for your buck!

Simple, powerful with near zero latency. Heavy duty housing is made to withstand hard use. Many complain about the inputs being hot. However, with proper adjustment this thing works just great! Tweak it, you'll dig it. I have had several interfaces in this price range and the AudioBox is the hit. The others were completely irritating to load and run, with plenty of bugs. This one was headache free for me. I am running it in Presonus Studio One Pro but it comes with artist which is a nice DAW.

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.
