    PreSonus is excited to announce the USB 2.0 bus-powered AudioBox™ iOne audio interface and AudioBox iTwo audio/MIDI interface for Mac®, Windows®, and Apple iPad®. These next-generation mobile interfaces include PreSonus' easy-to-use Studio One® Artist DAW for Mac and Windows, new Capture™ Duo recording software for iPad, and a Nimbit® Free account for online direct-to-fan distribution of music, merchandise, and more. With Capture Duo or Capture for iPad and an AudioBox iOne or iTwo, you can record with an iPad, then wirelessly transfer your recordings directly to Studio One Artist. The result is an integrated, end-to-end, mobile solution that includes everything needed to record, edit, mix, and share music anytime and anywhere.

    The AudioBox iOne sports one instrument input and one mic input, while AudioBox iTwo offers two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs. Both feature high-performance Class A mic preamplifiers with phantom power and 24-bit, up to 96 kHz converters with 105 dB of dynamic range. The DACs feed balanced ¼-inch, line-level outputs and a loud, clear headphone output with independent level control. The AudioBox iTwo also includes MIDI In and Out. Each interface has an internal analog mixer with zero-latency monitoring, enabling you to monitor recorded tracks and overdubs without audible delay.

    Small, lightweight, and USB bus-powered, the AudioBox iOne and iTwo can sit on a tabletop or fit in the pocket of a backpack or laptop bag. They're built to travel, with a metal chassis and knobs and jacks secured directly to the enclosure to reduce strain on the internal circuit board.

    Both interfaces work with any recording software that supports Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows).

    Yup. Same pre's and converters that are in the 1818VSL I bought last week. Sounds great, lots of headroom, headphone amp that'll knock your head off, nice converters, and solidly built - it doesn't "feel" cheap.

    I'm just starting to get to know the AudioBox routing software and the Studio One DAW, but both appear to make sense and are logistically sound, from what I've been able to gather thus far..

    I also have the ability to use my iPad, although I haven't gotten that far into it yet.

    Presonus is certainly offering a nice quality package for the money.

    It's absolutely a night and day difference when compared to the Tascam 1641 I used to use, and sounds quite a bit better than several other I/O's that I've used in the same/similar price class.

    And no, of course it's not a Neve or an API... it's also not 5 Large for two channels... LOL...but it is a very well-built and great sounding interface for the money.

    Chris, wasn't that last mix you sent me, one of your most recent mixing projects you did... wasn't it originally recorded on these same pre's and converters?
    I thought it sounded great.
