PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 Studio Bundle

Start recording now with a PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 audio interface, condenser mic, headphones, and Studio One Artist DAW software. Just add your computer!
The PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 Studio Bundle Recording Package has everything you need to satisfy the DIY musician inside you! Unless you struggle to open cardboard boxes or can't figure out how undo twist ties, it'll take you all of five minutes to pull this gear out of the box and start laying down tracks! And with a 96 kHz audio interface, condenser microphone, software, and headphones all in one package, all you need to add is your own musical ideas.

PreSonus AudioBox 96 2-Channel USB Audio Interface

At the heart of the bundle is the AudioBox 96 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, 1/4" keyboard input, or other instrument-level or line-level source. Each XLR input can deliver phantom power to a microphone when needed. Separate gain knobs 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 connected to powered speakers for mixing. Or you can run them to a house PA/mixer for live performance. A headphone jack with its own volume knob lets you send a mix directly to the ears read more 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 M7 Microphone: Capture Vocals and More

This sweet package wouldn't be complete with the PreSonus M7 large-diaphragm microphone. It's a great all-around microphone for male and female vocals, acoustic guitars, and keyboard or guitar amplifiers. Like most condenser mics, it's going to need phantom power. When you plug it into the AudioBox, 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 software is a free download when you register your hardware with PreSonus. This easy-to-use recording software is capable of creating music at a 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 a MIDI keyboard or MIDI pad controller.

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 sampling rates up to 96 kHz. The AD/DA converters are professional-grade converters with a +105 dB dynamic range. The internal mixer offers low-latency monitoring. The AudioBox is Mac and Windows compatible.

Features:

- Bus-powered USB 2.0 audio and MIDI interface
- Compatible with almost all recording software for Mac and Windows
- 24-bit resolution, 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz sampling rates

Includes Studio Magic Plug-in Bundle: Over $1000 in Free Software!

With over $1000 of virtual instruments, effects plug-ins and more, PreSonus' Studio Magic plug-in suite offers something for everyone -- and it's included as a free download with this product. Here's a look at everything included in this bundle:

Ableton Live Lite (a standalone DAW) is a lightweight edition of Ableton Live, with essential instruments and effects. (PreSonus also throws in their Studio One Artist software as a free download, so if you're in need of modern DAW software, you've got two solid choices right off the bat.)

Arturia's Analog Lab Lite 3 (VST, VST3, AAX, AU, Standalone) is a "Greatest Hits" collection of physically modeled — not sampled — classic analog synths, organs, string machines, and pianos from Arturia's V-Collection of virtual instruments.

Brainworx bx_opto compressor (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP) combines the best aspects and anomalies from several legendary, light-dependent compressor circuits. The result is a powerful dynamics processor, teeming with character and delivering sounds that can't be achieved with analog optical compressors.

Brainworx bx_rockrack V3 guitar amp modeling plug-in (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP) provides boutique tube guitar amp simulations that sound and feel like the real thing, with 8 famous amp models and 40 impulse responses in one plug-in.

Cherry Audio Voltage Modular Nucleus (VST, AU, AAX) is a terrific introduction to modular synthesis with 22 modules and 67 presets.

iZotope Neutron Elements (VST, VST3, AAX, AU, Standalone) features futuristic, assistive technology and four fantastic-sounding audio processors: Compressor, EQ, Exciter, and Transient Shaper. Like having a virtual assistant, Neutron Elements will listen to your audio, identify instruments, and offer custom starting points for your mix decisions while leaving the creative control to you.

Klanghelm SDRR2tube (VST, AU, AAX) can be a saturation processor, a compressor, an EQ, a bit-crusher, or a subtle stereo widener to add warmth, depth, and character to your tracks.

KV331 Audio Synthmaster Player (VST, AU, AAX) is a simplified version of the developer's SynthMaster semi-modular software synthesizer and effects plug-in, with limited editing capabilities. It comes with 1,800 factory presets from a world-class team of sound designers and offers 12 editable parameters.

Lexicon's MPX-i Reverb (VST, AU, AAX) delivers seven classic Lexicon plate, hall, chamber, and room reverbs. A streamlined interface and 100 versatile, finely crafted presets enable you to quickly get the sound you want.

Mäag Audio EQ2 (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP) delivers the sound of the Mäag Audio EQ2 two-band hardware equalizer. Mäag Audio's EQ design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix's original sound while enhancing the very high "air" frequencies.

Native Instruments' Replika delay plug-in (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP) packs two professional quality delays and a powerful diffusion algorithm into a sleek, streamlined interface.

Output Movement (VST, VST3, AU, AAX) is an exciting effects plug-in for the studio or stage that adds powerful rhythms to any input in real-time. Movement's four rhythm engines blend seamlessly, while analog modeled effects optimized for modulation let you add rhythm with reverb and compressors pumping, filters and EQs opening and closing, delays morphing, and tube distortion warming and cooling.

SPL Attacker Plus (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP), from Plugin Alliance, is a micro-plug-in that enables all attack events to be amplified, regardless of their signal level. By focusing on the initial transient instead of specific frequencies, SPL Attacker Plus amplifies just the attack curves of a sound event, allowing instruments to be mixed at lower levels.

StudioLinked Trophies (VST, VST3, AAX, AU, Standalone) is an intuitive and easy-to-use collection of R&B sounds assembled by nine-time Grammy-winning producer Bryan-Michael Cox. It includes 500 multi-sampled presets across 13 categories, onboard effects, ADSR controls, filtering controls, and a robust library of chord progressions that you can drag and drop into your instrument track.

UJAM Virtual Drummer 2 "Phat" (VST, VST3, AAX, AU, Standalone) is all about funky urban drums suitable for everything from retro soul to g-funk. You get 30 different drum styles and 720 patterns recorded across 5 drum kits.

UVI Model D (VST, AU, AAX) lets you experience the presence and power of a Concert Grand Model D piano, captured in the brilliant Guillaume Tell soundstage in Paris.
