PreSonus Audiobox iTwo Reviews

Updated two-star critical review.

Update on 2018-01-11: Hi, I previously wrote a negative review on this item. I don’t know what changed, but I just used various combinations of Audiobus 3, Flux:FX and Flection Distortion to process a drum machine in real-time through an iPad Air 2 for nearly an hour and my�battery�decreased only 1%! I powered the Audiobox iTwo through a 6 ft. USB/Thunderbolt cable to the power adapter that came with the iPad. The last time I did something similar, several months ago, this would have consumed 10-15%. Perhaps one of the iPad updates since I last used the Audiobox changed something on the iPad to remedy this extra�battery�usage. Presonus’ claim about the “trickle charging” may now be valid. I’m changing my rating from two to five stars.

This is the correct product for what we need

We are using the Presonus in-between the 8 channel analog audio mixer that we already owned to connect using USB to our new computer for recording audio/video using VMix software. We are not using this in a band recording situation. I needed some tech assistance from a friend to get this working initially, as I did a software update that gave me problems. All is well now and am happy we made the purchase.

Amazing, Portable

This interface is amazing, and easy to use. It comes with Studio One 3 Artist, an easy to use DAW, and the integration between the two is flawless. I use this interface all the time for recording guitar and vocals. Worth every penny! Plus, I also use this with my iPad to record right into Garageband for iOS.

Works with iPad and computers

This is a quality product that allows me to record church sermons and other music to iPad or computer.

Does not charge iPad - $85+ to repair power supply damage.

I have an iPad Air 2 and it does not charge the iPad while it is connected to an AudioBox iTwo that is powered using an Apple charger. A Knowledge Base article on their website claims that the iPad trickle charges while in operation. I closed all apps on the iPad except for the three required to perform the audio activity I had purchased the unit to perform. The iPad did not charge nor did the battery deplete any more slowly as a result of the trickle charging. I connected a Korad 3005 testing power supply, which is capable of providing much more power than the Apple charging adapter that is packaged with the iPad, to the AudioBox and its charging function did not improve. The iPad still was not charged by the AudioBox iTwo. If you damage the AudioBox iTwo with a mismatched or faulty power supply the unit does not qualify for a repair under warranty. Presonus wants $85 USD to repair and return the unit to you, in addition to you paying the shipping both ways.

Good price!!!

It works very well. Light and portable with easy way to configute (bootcamp 6.0 on a macmini 2015). Worthwhile!

Could you use this for a phone call on an iPhone?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not really its a computer interface for recording. It only works with the i Pad. You might want to check our website for JK Audio. They have a rather extensive line of devices for phones.

I need an interface primarily for digitizing audio output from an analog cassette deck, but being able to record live sound would be a big plus. Is this item suitable for this use?
Asked by: Eric
You can absolutely use this Presonus interface for both of those purposes. You can take the line output of the cassette deck and go into the line inputs on this interface.
