The Presonus AudioBox 22VSL USB audio interface delivers exceptional audio recording capabilities in a cleverly designed unit that seamlessly integrates hardware and software. Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned pro, the AudioBox provides professional quality results at an affordable price.

Function is at the heart of the AudioBox 22VSL. Presonus appreciate that when recording live to a click, or recording overdubs, latency can be an overwhelming obstacle to overcome. The streamlined design of this little beauty means that whatever DAW you decide to record into, and whatever platform you use - Mac or PC - you can expect superb results every time.

The AudioBox 22VSL comes with Presonus' fantastic Virtual StudioLive software. With the VLS software you can perform a huge range of tasks with ease that includes: adjusting levels, panning signal streams, adjusting FX send levels and parameters, soloing and muting each input and playback stream. Thanks to their expert technical team, real-time FX processing, including: dynamics processing, EQ and reverb are executed with absolute precision and near-zero latency!

The front panel is home to two dual-purpose input channels with combo XLR mic and balanced 1/4" instrument connections. In order to ensure optimum signal integrity, Presonus have included their class-A XMAX mic/instrument preamps - as used on their flagship audio interfaces - in both inputs. Each channel has an individual trim control with 0 to +35dBu mic gain range as well as 48V phantom power for condenser microphones. Professional-grade analogue to digital to analogue converters offer a very generous +114 dBu dynamic range, giving more than enough headroom to ensure clean and concise signal levels. Along the rear panel are two main outputs for a direct send to your monitors, MIDI In and Out ports for connecting external devices, a USB 2.0 connection that connects directly to your Mac or PC, and a headphone output for a direct monitor feed when you want to record into the wee hours.

As well as StudioLive, the AudioBox 22VSL is supplied with the latest version of the Studio One Artist digital audio workstation (DAW), which provides an elegant single-window work environment. Studio One Artist has the same functionality of other popular DAWs, but the key here is enabling a streamlined workflow. Laying down tracks, editing and mixing, are all very simple tasks thanks to intuitive layout, and you'll be flying in no time. As with the hardware, the Studio One Artist DAW is compatible with both Mac and Windows, allowing it to fit perfectly into your existing setup and workflow.

The Presonus AudioBox 22VSL USB Audio Interface is the perfect piece of kit for musicians who want a no-nonsense unit that is road-ready, reliable, and records to an incredibly high standard of quality. The price may be ludicrously affordable, but you can rest assured that no expense has been spared in order to make the AudioBox 22VSL a little beauty.

The minimum system requirements may differ for DAWs other than Studio One. Please check the requirements for your DAW of choice with its manufacturer.

Note that the speed of your processor, amount of RAM and size and speed of your hard drive will greatly affect the overall performance of your recording system. Also, a more powerful system (faster processor with more RAM) will allow for lower latency (signal delay) than you might experience while monitoring audio or MIDI signals. Monitor resolution for both PC and Macintosh should be no lower than 1024x768 pixels.
