PreSonus AudioBox 96 Studio Complete Hardware/Software Recording Bundle (25th Anniversary Black)

PreSonus AudioBox 96 Studio Complete Hardware/Software Recording Bundle (25th Anniversary Black)


Overview

The 25th anniversary black PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 is a 2x2 USB audio interface offering Class-A mic preamps with 48V phantom power, MIDI I/O, and simple operability in a portable and sturdy steel chassis that is conveniently bus powered, making it a great solution for singers, musicians, podcasters, and producers recording at home or on the go.

The AudioBox USB 96 utilises 24-bit convertors at sampling rates up to 96 kHz to ensure the integrity of your signals. The two XLR-1/4" combo inputs let you record microphones (dynamic or condenser) or instruments such as electric guitar while monitoring with zero latency. Stereo 1/4" monitor and headphone outputs are provided with independent volume controls for optimal hookup of speakers and headphones.

The interface is bundled with the Studio One Artist DAW software for Mac and Windows, and includes the Studio Magic plug-in suite, delivering effects, virtual instruments, and third-party loops, software, and instrument sounds.
