Everything You Need to Start Recording Performances in Stereo!
The PreSonus AudioBox Stereo Bundle Recording Package has everything you need to record live performances in stereo: an audio interface, twin condenser microphones, software, headphones and cables, all in one package. All you need to add is a computer!
PreSonus AudioBox 2-Channel USB Audio Interface
At the heart of the bundle is the AudioBox USB interface itself. It runs right into your computer with a single USB cable and draws its power straight from the bus. No separate power adapter needed! This way, if you're using a laptop, you'll be able to take your audio interface along wherever you go.
On the front of the AudioBox you've got two balanced Mic/Instrument inputs, which can each accommodate an XLR vocal microphone, 1/4" guitar cable, or 1/4" keyboard input. Each can deliver phantom power to a microphone when needed. Separate gain stages with a handy red clip light allow you to keep the gain from getting too hot. The Left and Right main outputs come from two balanced 1/4-inch jacks and can be easily run to powered speakers for mixing. Or you can run them to a house PA for live performance. A headphone jack with its own volume knob lets you send a mix directly to the ears of that vocalist you're recording -- or to continue your mixing work after everyone else has gone to sleep. And PreSonus has thoughtfully included a pair of HD7 headphones just for this purpose.
PreSonus SD7 Microphones: Ensemble Recording, Made Simple
This sweet package wouldn't be complete without a pair of PreSonus SD7 small-diaphragm condenser microphones. This stereo pair of mics offers a wide dynamic range between 40 Hz - 20 kHz -- ideal for solo acoustic guitar, acoustic piano, vocal ensembles and more. The mics can be mounted on a stereo bracket or set up apart from each other for a huge range of recording scenarios. Like any condensers, the SD7s are going to need phantom power, so when you plug them into the AudioBox for the first time, just hit the +48V button in the middle of the unit and you'll be good to go!
DAW Software Included -- Or Use Your Own
If you've already got DAW software you dig, the AudioBox will work with it. If you're new to the world of DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software, the included Studio One Artist 2 software is a great way to start learning how computer-based recording works. But make no mistake, this deceptively simple software is capable of creating music at a totally professional level. It offers unlimited tracks for recording, and high quality FX plug-ins to add reverb, delay, band pass filters, and much more to your tracks. The MIDI input and outputs on the AudioBox will come in handy here if you're creating music using MIDI tracks.
Quality A/D Converters On Board
The PreSonus label means that you're not sacrificing great sound on a less expensive interface. The audio processes with 24-bit resolution at either 44.1 or 48 kHz sampling rates. The A/D/A converters are professional-grade converters with a +102 dBu dynamic range. The internal mixer offers zero-latency monitoring. The AudioBox is Mac and Windows compatible, and supports ASIO, Core Audio, Direct Sound, and Windows Audio Session API drivers.
