Record anywhere with multiplatform AudioBox iTwo.
When you see the name “PreSonus,” you can expect top audio quality—and the ultra-mobile, 2-channel AudioBox iTwo delivers, thanks to high-performance Class A microphone preamplifiers and professional-quality, 24-bit, 96 kHz converters. USB bus-powered, it’s compact, ruggedly built, and designed to work perfectly with Studio One recording software and Capture Duo for iPad but also works fine with other audio software that supports ASIO (Windows), Core Audio (Mac), or iOS (iPad).
AudioBox iTwo is a mobile interface in the best sense of the term. It weighs just 1.36 pounds (0.616 kg) and can sit on a tabletop or fit in the pocket of a backpack or laptop bag. Since it’s powered by the USB bus, you don’t have to mess with a “wall wart” power supply or AC cord. And it’s built to withstand the rigors of travel.
Studio One Artist lets you focus on your music.
Studio One® is the DAW for the 21st century. The software connects directly to the Web so you can share what you've created, sell your finished works, and download what others have done—all from within the program. An RSS feed delivers Studio One-related news and information and alerts you when a new version is available and gives you a link to a download page.
PreSonus Exchange brings your work to others and theirs to you: swap presets, Soundsets, grooves, macros, and more. You can also download new Studio One Extensions, factory presets, and international language packs. It’s easy: Download from Exchange simply by dragging from the Exchange folder in the Browser into your Song or Project.
With free two-track Capture Duo or affordable 32-track Capture for iPad (both available from the Apple App Store), you can record your tracks on an iPad wherever you roam on Planet Earth, then transfer the tracks wirelessly to Studio One (2.6.3 or later).
Studio One also lets you share your music on SoundCloud™, the site where musicians go to hear what other musicians are doing. Downloading is similar to Exchange: Drag from the SoundCloud folder in the Browser into your Song or Project. To upload (in Studio One Professional), check a box in the export dialog. That's right, upload directly from Studio One by checking one box. What's not to love about that?
When you are ready to market your finished music, Studio One makes it easy by connecting you to your account on Nimbit®, the leading direct-to-fan musician’s-services site. Once again, just export your work and check a box. Your music can be on sale minutes after you finish exporting the final version.
Record on the go with Capture Duo for iPad.
Laptops are great recording tools but if you really want to go mobile, you need an iPad, AudioBox iTwo, and free Capture™ Duo two-track recording software for iPad. Based on PreSonus’ Capture live-recording software for StudioLive mixers, Capture Duo lets you record two stereo tracks with up to 24-bit, 96 kHz fidelity using the AudioBox iTwo. It also works with any other iPad interface that supports Core Audio for iPad, including the iPad’s built-in mic.
Here’s the kicker: You can record with Capture Duo, then wirelessly transfer your recordings directly from your iPad to a Mac or PC running Studio One. Then edit, sweeten, overdub, and mix with the power of a world-class DAW. Songs and individual tracks can also be copied using iTunes if the iPad is connected to the computer with a USB cable. If two tracks isn’t enough, no worries! Just go to the App Store and purchase the low-cost, multitrack Capture for iPad. With Capture for iPad, you can record up to 32 tracks. Other than track count, it’s identical to Capture Duo and equally easy to use.
Capture the subtle nuances with an M7 microphone.
Get your mic collection off to a good start with this professional studio microphone. The versatile large-diaphragm design makes it perfect for recording a wide range of sources including voice, acoustic guitar, percussion, and more. Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, due to the very small mass that must be moved by the in-coming sound wave. This means you can capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. From vocals to acoustic guitar recordings, you’ll hear the difference. Large diaphragm microphones like the M7 tend to “warm up” a sound and are a great choice for recording vocals and for recording instruments when you want a “deep” sound.
HD7 Professional Monitoring Headphones.
PreSonus’ high-definition HD7 headphones take advantage of a patented, semi-open sound chamber to deliver exceptionally deep low frequencies with a balanced and yet powerful bass punch.
