High-end sound in a portable, roadworthy interface
The bus-powered, compact and rugged AudioBox 44VSL offers two convenient front-panel mic/instrument combo inputs and two mic/line inputs, all with global phantom power and it also provides four line-level outputs in addition to the main outputs. It sports the same high-headroom Class A XMAX™ preamps as the StudioLive mixers and has 24-bit, 96 kHz converters with 114 dB dynamic range for clear, clean audio. It also boasts PreSonus' legendary 150 mW headphone output, which is powerful enough to drive any set of headphones.
Virtual StudioLive™ technology
Tracking and monitoring using the effects on your DAW can be a tricky process. The latency involved, although tiny, is often enough to create phasing and un-natural effects which are distracting to the artist and can compromise their performance. Presonus' VSL technology dramatically reduces processing delay, resulting in dynamics processing, EQ, reverb, and effects that feel real, with no audible delay. Presonus include their VSL-series effects with the AudioBox 44VSL, taken from their StudioLive 16.0.2 Fat Channel dynamics processors and EQ, along with a separate limiter, expander, and high-pass filter.
The AudioBox 44VSL also includes an 8x4 software mixer, thanks to the power of VSL technology. This means you can mix a studio session or live show, all while monitoring and recording with real-time effects and processing. As it's software powered, patching is simple and easily controlled with just a few mouse clicks.
Studio One Artist Included
The AudioBox 44VSL includes Presonus' Studio One™ Artist, a full-featured DAW with all the functionality you need to record professional sounding tracks.
