PreSonus AudioBox iOne and AudioBox iTwo USB Interfaces
-- PreSonus AudioBox iOne and AudioBox iTwo USB Interfaces---- 
The PreSonus AudioBox™ iOne and AudioBox™ iTwo are USB bus-powered audio/MIDI interfaces for Mac®, Windows®, and Apple iPad using an attendant USB power supply.

Both feature metal chassis and control knobs, the AudioBox iOne has separate XLR microphone input and 1/4-inch instrument jacks, while AudioBox iTwo offers two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs. Both feature high-performance class-A mic preamplifiers with phantom power, 24-bit/96 kHz converters and 105 dB of dynamic range. Both interfaces have a pair of balanced 1/4-inch, line-level outputs plus a separate headphone output jack with independent level control.

The AudioBox iTwo adds MIDI In/Out jacks and both interfaces have an internal analog mixer with zero-latency monitoring enabling you to monitor and freely mix previously recorded tracks while overdubbing and without hearable latency. The iOne has a Direct button that gives you a 50/50 mix of live input and your already recorded tracks.

Both interfaces work with any recording software that supports Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows). So I tried my AudioBox iTwo with Pro Tools HD 11.2.1 running on my Mac and found it to be superior in all ways to the other small interface I had been using. I like the detents on all the controls for a positive feel when making changes. I also like the ability to change either input over to a DI input for guitars or synths leaving the other as a standard XLR microphone input. The blue LEDs and matching blue anodized case are elegant-looking too!

These rugged PreSonus USB interfaces come with Studio One® Artist DAW software for Mac and Windows, and download links to new Capture™ Duo recording software for iPad, and a Nimbit® Free account for online direct-to-fan distribution of music, merchandise, and more. The PreSonus AudioBox iOne sells for $129 MAP while the PreSonus AudioBox iTwo goes for $159 MAP. Much more at: www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-i-Series.
