Description

Everything you need for recording and producing

The AudioBox Studio provides the basic tools you need for:

  • Multi-track song production
  • Demos and musical inspirations
  • Live performances
  • Podcasts
  • Field recording for video or SFX


  • AudioBox is the heart of the AudioBox Studio

    Why settle for a "toy" interface when you can own PreSonus quality? Perfect for musicians and podcasters, the 2-channel AudioBox USB boasts high-performance microphone preamplifiers and professional-quality, 24-bit converters. Powered by your computer, it's compact, ruggedly built and designed to work perfectly with Studio One recording and production software on your PC or Mac.

  • Bus-powered USB audio and MIDI interface
  • Perfect match with Studio One Artist software for Mac and Windows
  • 24-bit resolution, 44.1 and 48 kHz sampling rate
  • 2 combo mic/instrument inputs with Class A mic preamplifiers
  • 48V phantom power for M7 condenser microphone
  • Zero-latency monitoring via internal mixer
  • Headphone jack with level control
  • 1/3U rack-mountable
  • USB cable included


  • Simple, Convenient, Reliable, and Portable



    If you are a mobile musician or podcaster on a tight budget who relies mostly on software except for a couple of mics or instruments, and your computer is equipped with USB but not FireWire, we have just the recording interface for you: the AudioBox USB.

    This simple, handy little box connects to a computer via USB 1.1, so it works with virtually any PC or Mac, not just newer models. And it has just the right features for your basic recording needsneither more nor less.

    The AudioBox USB may be small and simple, but it boasts PreSonus quality inside and out. It offers excellent audio performance, thanks to two dual-purpose front-panel mic/instrument inputs with sweet-sounding Class A mic preamplifiers and professional-quality, 24-bit converters that sample at up to 48 kHz.

    Power amplifiers are classified primarily by the design of the output stage and are designated Class A, B, AB, D, G, or H. In a Class A preamp, the output circuits are always on for the entire cycle of signal swing or the bias current flows at all times.

    As a result, Class A preamps that use quality components, such as the AudioBox USB, have the most linear design, with the least amount of crossover distortion, and they deliver purer, clearer, and more musical results than the Class AB designs that are found in many preamps.

    You get a pair of line-level outputs and an ultra-loud, crystal-clear headphone output. MIDI In and Out ports ensure that you can use control surfaces and keyboards without requiring a separate MIDI interface.

    This is a mobile interface in the best sense of the term. It weighs just 5 pounds and can sit on a tabletop or can be mounted in 1/3 of a rackspace. Its powered by the USB bus, so you dont have to mess with a wall wart power supply or AC cord. And its built to withstand the rigors of travel.

    We designed AudioBox USB to excel as a mobile interface, so we built it to take a serious pounding and remain completely reliable. Its built like a small tank, with an all-metal chassis and metal knobs. But seeing and hearing is believing, so we took an AudioBox USB into the parking lot, kicked and stomped it, ran over it with a full-size truck, and then used it to record PreSonus Cajun All Stars lead singer and guitarist Chris LeBlanc performing When the Levee Breaks. We videotaped the proceedings so you could witness the tests and judge the results for yourself. The result is AudioBox USB: Built for the Road.

    So toss the AudioBox USB in your laptop bag and take it to your gig, to your hotel room, even to the beach (but be careful about sun and sand!). Wherever your travels take you, your AudioBox USB will be ready to perform.

    The Finishing Touches

    We could have stopped right there, but its not our way to stop when we can give you even more for your money. So we included an internal analog mixer with zero-latency monitoring, enabling you to monitor recorded tracks and overdubs with no annoying delay time

    Then we added the finishing touch by bundling a free copy of our amazing Studio One Artist DAW software for Mac and Windows

    So if youre looking for a 2-in, 2-out USB recording interface with exceptional sound quality, look no further than the AudioBox USB. Because sometimes a simple, well-made, well-designed solution is exactly what you need.

    Studio One 2 Software is the soul of the AudioBox Studio

    No other entry-level recording and production software is this easy to use, yet is capable of creating studio-quality output.

  • Workflow
    ?Studio Ones intuitive browser and drag-and-drop paradigm let you work faster and more creatively, so making music is more fun. Tasks that take multiple steps in most DAWs can be done in one or two quick, easy steps.

    Faster Macros and key shortcuts.
    Key shortcuts enable quick execution of commands. In addition to supplying a full set of simple key shortcuts, Studio One lets you create your own. Making the switch from Pro Tools, Logic, or Cubase? You can elect to use your familiar key shortcuts from those programs in Studio One as well.

    Macros take things to the next level by letting you define a sequence of commands that can be assigned its own key shortcut or button. Whether a macro contains 3 steps or 20, any string of commands you perform frequently can be only one keystroke away.

    Just finished a punch-in? Review it with a macro that disables the metronome and preroll and starts playing from the punch-in point. Don't like what you did? Another macro undoes the last try, turns the metronome and preroll on, takes you back to the location where you started, and begins recording another pass. It's addictive.

    This video shows you Studio One's macro toolbar, tabbing to transients in audio parts, track resizing, and other features and enhancements added in version 2.0.5.

    QuickSwitch between multiple open Songs.
    Studio One can have multiple Song and Project documents open at one time. Not many DAWs can do that, and the ones that can make you wait while they reload virtual instruments and effects. You drum your fingers on the table and stare at the ceiling while the great idea that just came to you slips away. Not with Studio One. A simple key shortcut instantly selects any open Song, and a few short seconds later, you're working on it.

    Templates, console, and track-viewing presets.
    Tasks like setting up a session and choosing which tracks to display or hide take time. Theyre worth doing once but having to set up every session from scratch kills creativity and productivity. Thats why Studio One lets you customize your workspace and save it as a template that holds everything from I/O mapping to effects settings. The next time inspiration strikes, just launch Studio One, open a template, and record your new Song.
    You often work on selected groups of tracks. Why should you have to look at tracks you arent dealing with? Studio One lets you see the tracks and channels you're working on and hide the rest. Of course, you can store these selections as console or track presets, so you can work on drums, then switch to working on guitars, always seeing only the tracks and channels you need. Check out this video on track management in Studio One, offered in English, Spanish, French, and German.

    A secondary tool is always at hand.
    Studio One's shortcuts make for fast switching between tools but sometimes you only need to switch for a momentto make a selection, for example. Studio One gives you momentary access to a secondary tool just by holding down a single key. As soon as you release the key, your primary tool is active again.

    Contextual menus all over the place.
    Right-click almost anywhere in Studio One, and a contextual menu will drop down. Right-click on the object you want to work on and select what you want to do to it from the menu. What could be faster or more intuitive?

    Editable effects microviews.
    Plug-in editor windows take up valuable screen space. If you just need to make a small change to a compressor threshold, why should you have to open a whole window, make the change, and close it again? Thats too many steps.
    There's an easier way: PreSonus plug-ins can display a limited set of parameters in a tiny editor within the mixer. Click on the Compressor plug-in in the mixer and drag the Threshold control. Done. You can even see the resulting compression curve.

  • Perform multiple steps with a single gesture.
  • Submixing in other DAWs: Make a bus channel to be the submix master, then go to each source channel, one at a time, and change the channel output to feed the new bus.
  • Submixing the Studio One way: Select all the channels you want in the submix and choose the Add Bus for Selected Channels command.
  • Adding an insert effect in other DAWs: Select a plug-in from a very long drop-down list, then, once the plug-in comes up, select a preset for it.
  • Adding an insert effect the Studio One way: Drag a preset from the Browser and drop it on a channel or a track associated with it. Done. The plug-in is created and the preset is loaded. Or drag the effect to the inserts area and drop it right in the middle of an existing chain of effects.


  • Create a comp in seconds.
    No one, but no one, has faster comping than Studio One. Audition a take or layer with the Listen tool, then select the passage you want, and it is immediately added to the comp. Its fast and snappy!

    Export loops and files by dragging to the Browser.
    Create a loop in PreSonus's Audioloop or Musicloop formats simply by dragging an Audio Part or Instrument Part to the Browser. You can even drag an Audio Part to the Mac Finder or Windows Explorer to make a REX2 file.
    The possibilities become positively mind-boggling when you add in Event FX because you can devise a loop, add processing to it, then just drag it to the Browser to bounce it to a new file.

    Normalize, transpose, time-stretch, or resample in real-time.
    Working quickly demands there be as little waiting as possible. Studio Ones fresh, efficient code lets you transpose or normalize tracks (or even individual Audio Events or Instrument Parts) and time-stretch or resample files, all in real-time. No waiting to render new files. And every tempo-tagged item in a Song immediately follows tempo changes.

    Add fades to any number of Audio Events with a single keystroke.
    The British dubbed it "top and tail" but it's just good housekeeping: Every Audio Event should have at least a small fade-in and fade-out to avoid clicks. You need a fast way to do that for every Audio Event in the Song.
    The simple answer is Autofades. With one keystroke, every selected Event is given top and tail fades. Done. Next task!

    FX Chains add an entire processing chain with a single drag-and-drop.
    Do you have favorite compressor and EQ plug-ins for vocals? Maybe you worked up the huge stadium guitar sound using the Ampire XT, Flanger, and Analog Delay plug-ins. Getting that guitar sound again for your next recording is as quick as dragging the "HUGE Guitar" FX Chain you stored from the Browser to a new guitar track. Youre instantly right back in the stadium. For more about Studio One's Native Effects plug-in, click here.
    Here's a video that shows just a few of the ways you can work faster with Studio One. (The video shows version 1.1you can work even faster with version 2!)
    Studio One is more than just fast. Find out how Studio One is easier and better, as well.

    Sounds Better.
    You can hear the difference with Studio One. It just sounds better. This isnt some happy accident, though: Studio One has a new 64-bit audio engine, written from the ground up.
    Studio One provides truly high-resolution audio, recording at sample rates up to 384 kHz with 32-bit floating point resolution. Studio One Professional can operate its mixer with 64-bit floating-point, double-precision processing. Studio One's audio engine automatically switches to 32-bit mode on the fly for 32-bit plug-ins, and runs in 64-bit mode for 64-bit plug-ins.
    These are not simply theoretical advantages; the difference is audible. Our opinions are a little biased, we admit, but we encourage you not to take our word for it. Take a look at what others have to say about the sound of Studio One, how smooth and "analog" it sounds. Most of all, listen for yourself.

    21st Century DAW
    Studio One is the DAW for the 21st century. The software connects directly to the Web so you can share what you've created, sell your finished works, and download what others have doneall from within the program. An RSS feed delivers Studio One-related news and information and alerts you when a new version is available and gives you a link to a download page.

    From you to the world (and back).

    PreSonus Exchange brings your work to others and theirs to you: swap presets, Soundsets, grooves, macros, and more. You can also download new Studio One Extensions, factory presets, and international language packs. Its easy: Download from Exchange simply by dragging from the Exchange folder in the Browser into your Song or Project.

    Studio One also lets you share your music on SoundCloud, the site where musicians go to hear what other musicians are doing. Downloading is similar to Exchange: Drag from the SoundCloud folder in the Browser into your Song or Project. To upload (in Studio One Professional), check a box in the export dialog. That's right, upload directly from Studio One by checking one box. What's not to love about that?

    When you are ready to market your finished music, Studio One makes it easy by connecting you to your account on Nimbit, the leading direct-to-fan musicians-services site. Once again, just export your work and check a box. Your music can be on sale minutes after you finish exporting the final version. State-of-the-art technology.

    The engineering team that created Studio One has been developing DAWs for many years. With Studio One, they had the opportunity to create a new DAW from the ground up that would be lean, fast, and take advantage of the latest computer technology.

    The result is a highly optimized and streamlined codebase that makes minimal demands on your CPU and is written for multicore processors, so Studio One takes full advantage of the maximum computing power your multiprocessor system can deliver. It also uses 64-bit memory addressing, so when run under a 64-bit operating system (such as Windows 7 and 8 and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and later), the software can address as much RAM as your computer can handle.

    The practical advantage is that you can have more tracks, more effects plug-ins, more virtual instruments, and speedier processing.

    What You Get
    When you buy Studio One, you not only get a deep, state-of-the art, yet easy to learn DAW that makes workflow seem like playflow; you also get a wealth of plug-ins, loops, instruments, and other content, plus integration with your external audio hardware.

    M7 High-Definition Condenser Microphone
    The M7 is a large-diaphragm condenser mic that is a great companion for the AudioBox USB.

    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, youll 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.

    The M7 features:
  • Large-diaphragm design
  • Captures far more detail than a dynamic mic
  • Mic-stand adapter
  • Phantom-powered via AudioBox USB
  • 9' / 3 m cable included
  • Cloth carry bag included


  • HD7 Professional Monitoring Headphones
    Whether youre monitoring, tracking or mixing, you can expect impressive sonic performance from your HD7 headphones.
