Professional grade recording

The Audiobox 96 USB is capable of recording at 24-bit resolution with a 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate. Thankfully, Presonus have gone to great lengths to ensure zero-latency monitoring is a breeze via the internal analog mixer, allowing you to track what you're playing in real-time and with minimal fuss. The headphone jack has an individual level control, which allows you to adjust the signal volume. Included in the bundle is a computer-to-interface connection cable so you're good to go as soon as it arrives.

Built to last

The Audiobox 96 is a truly mobile interface so not only will it perform in the studio but it also makes for a great interface when out gigging. The headphone output delivers masses of volume so that you can hear your output audio as clear as day, even in noisy locations. The Audiobox 96 can also be powered directly from USB and will fit in your laptop bag.

Included software

The Audiobox USB 96 was designed to work with any digital audio workstation that you use but it also comes bundled with a license for Presonus' own Studio One Artist giving you a complete digital recording and production suite right out of the box.

In addition, the Audiobox 96 also comes with the much revered Studio Magic plug-in suite giving you some incredible tools to develop music including effects and virtual instruments.

Presonus have won many awards throughout their illustrious career, and their Audiobox 96 has received the same attention-to-detail and careful construction that has gone into their flagship products.

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.
