Perfect Product

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.

Great Audio & Midi Interface + Studio One DAW!

Love this sturdy compact interface and have become addicted to the Studio One DAW that I upgraded to Professional, I'm getting excellent clear digital signal from the interface, no problems from day 1, everything good, this is state of the art and Presonus is on the cutting edge of digital music product technology, I've been using recording hardware and software for 20+ years and I'm really happy and excited to have selected Presonus and Studio One to take my music to the next level, what I'm working on now is exceeding what I've ever done and I'm still learning everything that this software & hardware can do!!!
