The AudioBox USB is a USB bus-powered audio recording interface featuring two microphone/instrument inputs with 48V phantom power, two balanced TRS outputs, and MIDI in/out. The AudioBox USB is bundled with the PreSonus Studio One Artist music creation program, and over 4GB of virtual instruments, plug-ins, loops, and samples to get you started making music immediately.
Highly Respected Preamplifiers
PreSonus Audio has won numerous awards for designing high quality microphone preamplifiers at all price levels. The AudioBox USB is loaded with two high-quality preamplifiers that deliver high headroom, low noise and high gain giving you pure, full and rich sound.
Professional 24-bit converters
Most USB recording devices operate at 16-bit sample rate and use converters with dynamic range of less than 90dB. This translates into a pinched and relatively small sound. The AudioBox USB uses professional-grade analog to digital converters with dynamic range of 102dB and 24-bit sample rate so that the digital conversion is big, quiet and musical.
The AudioBox USB is USB bus-powered allowing you to take it anywhere inspiration hits. No wall warts, line lumps or power cables, just plug in to a powered USB port and you are ready to record.
Ready to hit the road
There’s no plastic here. The AudioBox USB is housed in an all-metal chassis with metal knobs ready to withstand the rigors of travel. Toss it in your laptop bag and mobilize your music creation and production. Whether you want to record your shows, mix on the plane or write songs in your hotel room, the AudioBox is ready.

And of course, you get top-flight PreSonus technical support.
M7 High-Definition Condenser Microphone
Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, due to the very small mass that must be moved by the in-coming sound wave. This means you can capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. From vocals to acoustic guitar recordings, you’ll hear the difference.
Large diaphragm microphones like the M7 tend to “warm up” a sound and are a great choice for recording vocals and for recording instruments when you want a “deep” sound.
HD7 Professional Monitoring Headphones
Whether you’re monitoring, tracking or mixing, you can expect impressive sonic performance from your HD7 headphones. PreSonus’ high-definition HD7 headphones take advantage of a patented, semi-open sound chamber to deliver exceptionally deep low frequencies with a balanced and yet powerful bass punch.
