The AudioBox 44VSL from Presonus is a portable 4 input/4 output USB 2.0 audio and MIDI interface that allows for monitoring with low-latency effects. Using the computer's CPU and PreSonus Virtual StudioLive software, the interface provide reverb and delay effects and the same Fat Channel compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ, and high-pass filter, as the PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer, all with inaudible latency.
Compact and rugged, the interface offers two front-panel microphone/instrument combo and two microphone/line combo inputs, global phantom power, and six line-level outputs. It features the same high-headroom, Class-A XMAX preamps as the StudioLive mixers, and has 24-bit/96kHz converters with 114dB dynamic range for clear, clean audio.
The preamplifiers offer three key advantages - high voltage, discrete components and Class-A circuitry. The net result is low noise, wide dynamic range, extended frequency response, and most importantly, musicality and transparency. The unit is housed in a ruggedly built metal chassis. Clip lights are provided for all channels.
The interface includes an 8 x 4 software mixer that along with a laptop or other computer running VSL allows you to mix a studio session or a live show featuring, say, a guitar duo with vocals, a small band, a DJ rig with mixer and stereo synthesizer, or a panel discussion, all while monitoring and recording with or without real-time processing.
Seamlessly integrated with the included Studio One Artist DAW and VSL, the AudioBox 44VSL interface works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software.
