PreSonus Audiobox iOne Reviews

Average to Poor

By Steve
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2017-09-01

Dissapounting piece of gear. Build quality average with a poor finish (sharp edges on Aluminium housing)- plastic knobs etc. Input control dial has no gradual increase in range. The last 10 percent of the dial is the only place to get a useable level but it's to high so danger of clipping is high. Anything in the 0-90% range is too low. This problem is not unique to me (check forums) I would not recommend this product. Tried to ring service line but they don't support this product over phone. For the money it cost I couldn't be bothered anymore, sold it for $40 and purchased the behringer equivalent. I think the software that came with it looks pretty good but I never used it so can't offer a decent appraisal

Barely useful even for an amateur

I am not a pro in any sense of the word. Take my review with that in mind, please. I've had this interface about a year, connected to my home computer, and used it for recording my voice (reading aloud). It does its job as long as you don't ask too much of it. As long as you are OK with finding the sweet spot on the level dial and leaving it there, you will probably even like it. Sleek and sturdy: well constructed and good looking. Is that what consumers ask for in an audio interface nowadays? The problem I had to contend with was that when I switched microphones, I had to readjust the level. And I found quickly that it couldn't amplify a dynamic mic well enough. Even with the level turned up all the way, the audio was coming in at -20 dB. They claim that it's normal. Eventually I got tired of dealing with it and bought a UMC204HD. It's a definite improvement in all directions. It costs less, it has more flexible interface to audio (two hybrid inputs instead of one XLR and one 1/4), and MIDI controls. It has pads for inputs (if you need them). I can leave the levels on two inputs set for each mic. Levels do adjust smoother than iOne's, and preamps react normally. To be fair to PreSonus, I've not tried this interface with an iPad. For all I know it's perfect for it. Perhaps that's what you're looking for... I couldn't care less about that.

iOne is nice!

I have the M-Audio BX5a speakers and purchased the AudioBox iOne USB for my MacBook Pro. Easy to use and it puts out strong, clean audio.

Wow. Better than anticipated !

My Presonus Firestudio fire wire interface went bad ( after 4 years ). I was very concerned about a USB connection. Wow. This unit has absolutely no latency issues, consumes 50% Less CPU resources, and generates no heat. For the price it's a Grand Slam !

Rubbish Product

By Stephen

Gain Control Dial has no level adjust until the last 10% of range at which point it becomes unusable in terms of being too loud and getting into constant clipping territory. Any level adjust in the previous 90% of the control dial range is just too low. Check forums, this is not a unique problem. The product is unusable. The software looks okay but I never got to use it sadly. I'm switching to a Behringer

Some headphones won't work.

Only downside to this is headphones with the wrong impedance get nothing out of the headphone output until the dial is almost all the way up.

1-Does it charge the Ipad while recording as the lightening cable is already connected?2- Can I use this to audio record to Ipad with a special app only or I it will be default mic for any app using mic? I will be using explain everything screen capture on I pad and would like to be able to record my voice through PreSonus and not ipad builtin mic.
Asked by: Ali N.
According to Presonus, when the interface is powered via USB which is required when using an iPad, the unit will not charge when in use, however should maintain a charge. The unit will be compatible with most third party apps capable of recording audio.
