If you play and sing, then Sweetwater is happy to recommend the PreSonus AudioBox USB 96. We're confident that you'll be satisfied with the performance of this easy-to-use audio interface, just as countless AudioBox users have been before you. Its dual channel design lets you plug in a mic and your guitar and record both at once, and its integrated high-quality preamps ensure that the sound you get is top-notch. An onboard mixer makes it easy to dial the balance between your input and audio playback too, so you never have to worry about latency getting in the way.
The "96" in AudioBox USB 96 refers to the expanded capabilities of PreSonus's ultra-affordable 2-channel interface, which allows you to record in full professional 24-bit/96kHz digital resolution. That makes the AudioBox USB 96 not only great for project studio recording, but it also makes it an excellent tool for serious engineers who need an inexpensive mobile recording interface for hooking up to a laptop and tracking overdubs and other tracks when needing to bring the studio to the source. And since it's fully USB bus powered, you don't even need to make room in your laptop bag for an extra power supply when you record on the go.
If you're starting out fresh, then you're going to love the sheer value PreSonus packs into the AudioBox USB 96 audio interface. To begin with, it comes with a full version of PreSonus's acclaimed Studio One Artist DAW software. This ultra-flexible recording environment includes everything you need to get up and running, from audio recording and MIDI sequencing to powerful onboard processing and virtual instruments. That's not all — your AudioBox USB 96 also comes with over 6GB of bonus third-party content, providing you with tons of inspiration and extra tools to fuel your creativity.
Packaged with Studio One Artist, the Quantum 2626 provides you with everything you need to start recording on your computer. And to take it to the next level, PreSonus includes the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite. This extensive collection of popular plug-ins from manufacturers such as Maag Audio, Lexicon, and Arturia, adding up to hundreds of dollars of extra value. Punch up your mix bus with Brainworx's bx-opto, add ambiance with Eventide's SP2016-inspired Stereo Room reverb, fire up transients with SPL's Attacker, and much more. And since these plug-ins are available in AAX, VST, and AU formats, they're compatible with any DAW you choose.
