The AudioBox 22VSL from PreSonus is a portable 2 input/2 output USB 2.0 audio and MIDI interface that allows for monitoring with low-latency effects. It features two combo microphone/instrument inputs with Class-A XMAX microphone preamps, and ships with Studio One Artist DAW software.

The compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ, high-pass filter, reverb, and delay effects are the same as found on the company's StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer. Additionally, the AudioBox Virtual Studio- Live "kernal mode" cuts monitoring latency to under 2 1/2 milliseconds, which is virtually inaudible.

The unit is USB bus-powered and housed in a ruggedly built, metal chassis. Phantom power can be switched globally. Clip lights are provided for both channels

                  I have always used a Tascam this is the first time I used a computer studio. If you have never used a computer studio I would not get this product. They offer video instructions but the videos are low quality sound in which you can't hear anything. I have listened to 5 videos in which I could not hear on any of the videos they have out on You Tube or Vimeo. The reading instruction seemed geared toward a Pro Computer Studio Recording Person. The Music Center I bought it from said they are using this product in Nashville in which they seemed to like the product a lot. I am disappointed on learning how to use it. Other wise I think it is a good product. I will never know I am selling it to a person that has used a computer recording studio.

                  Comments about PreSonus AudioBox 22VSL - USB 2.0 Recording System:

                  I use the AudioBox as the main audio hardware on my work computer. I do podcasts, webinars, and Skype calls often, so I would rather use a nice studio grade microphone than a cheap headset. I constantly get asked what I am using because it sounds so good.

                  I have been a PreSonus user for years, so when I discovered I could have a good quality interface that incorporated DSP, I clicked buy. I can dial in a nice sounding compressor and EQ without having to have extra hardware in an already tight workspace. The documentation says an expander is available, but I have not yet found it's configuration. All in all, great box.

                          Like it. It replaced two components and I'm happy for the room and the ease. Love it.
