Set up was a little cumbersome but once started it was pretty self explanatory. The positives of the system include the USB connection for the mixer, the multiple inputs with XLR and 1/4 inch, and the amount of items that came with the set.The negatives though were that there is a hum in the line when you add the +48 power to use the mic that was supplied. Not sure if this is due to use through my laptop or if this is just a grounding issue with the USB. Overall: The thing works as long as you use your own mic to plug in that does not need the power boost.

This set gives you the motivation to get ready for your first Single/Album.
The audio quality still gives feedback/background noise.
Good way to get started, though, and like I said, you will feel so motivated, and DJ/Singer/Songwriter happy.

Highly recommend

Comments about PreSonus AudioBox Studio Set - Complete Hardware/Software Recording Kit:

This is a great product, although it didn't come with the actual software disc, I had to install it. Maybe only mine just didn't have the CD. But the mic is great and the headphones are really nice and it works for my old Windows XP, I'm upgrading to Windows 7 soon because this is studio one version 3 and version 3 isn't compatible with Windows XP so I was stuck with downloading artist version 2 from a third party site. But it's a nice interface and no problems at all. I'd buy it again.

    Comments about PreSonus AudioBox Studio Set - Complete Hardware/Software Recording Kit:

    As a singer, emcee and musician, I've always thought that recording my own material was somehow out of reach until I got a hold of this. Took it out of the box, installed the software, read the quick start instructions and went right to work! Usually, Hawaii takes a little longer for shipping but this came to my doorstep in no time at all. Mahalo B&H and PreSonus!!!

        I'm using to record my demo to put onto my website. The ease of set up is awesome. I actually installed on my laptop with the files going to an external hard drive, which allows my recording to be mobile and go wherever I want to record. A mobile recording studio! Headphones, mic and AudioBox are great quality items for an awesome price. Upgraded to the Studio One Professional software online for additional functions and the ability to save and use as mp3 files. Great buy for a great price!
