An ideal interface for singer/songwriters
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.
Get up to 96kHz resolution via USB 2.0
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.
