#028 - Presonus Audio Box - Record Anywhere, Anytime by Lesson Pros


I am a freelance musician and record projects on a daily basis. Every project has its challenges, and I wanted to eliminate some of the headaches and take control of the recording myself. So, I started looking for a USB audio interface to connect to my PC. One of my friends told me about the PreSonus Audiobox. The PreSonus is easy to use and truly amazing.

Studio One Artist Recording Software

A PreSonus AudioBox helps musicians make music with a small, easy-to-use interface. When you factor in the price and experience the power of the PreSonus AudioBox, you'll be sure to be satisfied. Also, the preamps sound great and you'll find it a joy being able to record your guitar and sing at the same time. PreSonus offers an audio interface with Studio One Artist recording artist software. It features phantom power and allows a musician to connect a microphone or ¼ inch audio cable directly and start recording and editing with ease. Looking for a true studio experience? Connect a pair of monitors for the easy mix. Just edit and listen back to your recording.
