PreSonus Audiobox 44VSL

This unit has been discontinued and replaced by the Studio 68
The AudioBox 44VSL is the second model in a new generation of PreSonus USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interfaces that take hardware/software integration to the logical next step. Using your computer CPU and PreSonus Virtual StudioLive (VSL) software, AudioBox VSL-series interfaces 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.

Furthermore, thanks to the power of VSL, the AudioBox 44VSL includes an 8x4 software mixer. As a result, with just an AudioBox 44VSL and your laptop or other computer running VSL, you can 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 effects!

XMAX preamps + 96 kHz sampling = great sound.
The AudioBox 44VSL features the same award-winning Class A XMAX preamps featured in our StudioLive AI mixers, found in recording studios and venues the world over. Record and play back at sampling rates up to 96 kHz, with remarkably low noise. If that’s all geek to you, here’s the simple version: This thing sounds great.

Perfect for small bands, DJs, and just about everyone else.
The AudioBox 44VSL’s two combo mic/instrument and two combo mic/line inputs make it extremely versatile, enabling you to use it with microphones, guitars, keyboards, DJ gear, and more. A mix control blends the input signal with the computer playback stream for zero-latency monitoring so you can overdub new tracks without hearing annoying delays. With its MIDI I/O, you can connect the AudioBox 44VSL to virtually any standard MIDI instrument or control surface. And you get four line-level audio outputs, enabling you to simultaneously feed and switch between two sets of monitor speakers or DJ gear.
These features make the AudioBox 44VSL a simple, affordable solution for small bands, DJs, school music labs, and virtually all instrumentalists.

Roadworthy and ready to travel.
We gave the AudioBox 44VSL a heavy-duty steel chassis and metal knobs, so it can take a serious pounding and remain completely reliable. Its screaming-loud headphone output ensures you can hear your music loud and clear, even in noisy locations. And despite all of its controls, preamps, and I/O, somehow we managed to shoehorn the AudioBox 44VSL into a half-rackspace case that can be screw-mounted to a standard rack tray (not included).

World-class recording software included.
Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One® 3 Artist DAW, the AudioBox 44VSL interface works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software. Built by creative people for creative music production, Studio One 3 is easy to learn and enables you to compose, record, and produce your masterpiece without getting distracted by the tools. Studio One also enjoys a robust online community of enthusiastic and helpful users you can turn to for advice.
