Simple, reliable, and portable.

Whether you are a musician, producer, or podcaster on a tight budget, the AudioBox USB® is for you! This simple, handy little recording interface has just the right features for basic recording needs, allowing you to plug in and start recording right away. Bus-powered and built to travel, the AudioBox USB makes recording easy.

Just the right size.

The AudioBox USB’s two front-panel combo mic/instrument inputs make it ideal for singer/songwriters, podcasters, and guitar or guitar-bass collaborations. Simply connect a couple of mics and you have an easy-to-use stereo recording system. A mix control lets you control the level between the input signal and computer playback, without hearing annoying delays. You also get a pair of balanced line-level outputs, an ultra-loud, crystal-clear headphone out, plus MIDI I/O, so you can connect your favorite synth or MIDI controller. The result is a simple, affordable, mobile recording solution.

Roadworthy and ready to travel.

Here is a mobile interface in the best sense of the term. We gave the AudioBox USB 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 it’s USB bus-powered, so you can record with it anywhere you can use a laptop. Simply drop it in your laptop bag or slap it on a tabletop.

World-class recording software included.

While the AudioBox USB works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software, it comes with a free license for PreSonus’ Studio One® 3 Artist DAW, giving you a complete recording solution. 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.

Built for the studio and the road.

Whether you're just getting into recording or are a veteran producer who wants to go mobile, the AudioBox USB will give you great sound in a bus-powered, rugged chassis that's ready to hit the road when you are. The perfect companion for any recording software, the AudioBox USB comes equipped with Studio One Artist to provide you with a complete recording solution right out of the box.

The minimum system requirements may differ for DAWs other than Studio One. Please check the requirements for your DAW of choice with its manufacturer.

Note that the speed of your processor, amount of RAM and size and speed of your hard drive will greatly affect the overall performance of your recording system.
