With Presonus AudioBox USB 96, you can instantly record your ideas wherever you are. AudioBox USB provides all the necessary tools for you to start producing your music right away with StudioOne Artist recording and production software that comes out of the package, powered by the USB input, with 2 instrument/microphone (48V Phantom power) inputs, 2 balanced TRS outputs and MIDI inputs and outputs. It is a sound card with hardware.
PreSonus has received many awards in this field by designing high quality microphone preamps for every price level. The powerful preamps in the AudioBox USB ensure a natural, full and rich sound with low noise, high gain ratio. AudioBox USB’s preamps are much higher performance than any other USB interface preamps on the market.
Professional 24-bit / 96k Converters
Most USB recorders work with converters with a dynamic rate of less than 90dB at a 16-bit sampling rate. This means a cramped and relatively unsatisfactory sound. AudioBox USB uses professional grade analog-to-digital converters with a dynamic rate of 102 dB and a sampling rate of 24-bit. In this way, the sound obtained as a result of digital transformation is wide, noiseless and musical.
AudioBox USB 96 is manufactured from an all-metal chassis. Thanks to its durable and compact structure, you can easily find a place for your AudioBox in your laptop bag. With its USB-powered design, wherever you are, you can bring your ideas to life as they come to mind, without losing them. Whether you’re recording shows, mixing on an airplane, or writing songs in a hotel room, AudioBox is ready for any situation.
