PreSonus Audio Electronics is pleased to announce that the AudioBox USB 2×2 USB recording system and the FireStudio Tube 16×10 firewire recording system are now in production and are scheduled to ship in April.
The AudioBox USB is a USB bus-powered interface with 2 mic/instrument preamps with 48V phantom power, 2 balanced TRS outputs, MIDI Input/Output, and a playback mixer knob on the front panel allowing you to adjust the volume level between your recording and existing tracks. The AudioBox USB ships complete with the PreSonus ProPak software suite featuring Steinberg’s Cubase LE 4 as well as a bundle of third party plug-ins, loops and drum samples.
The FireStudio Tube is a complete 24-bit/96k, professional, firewire recording system loaded with the perfect combination of inputs and outputs for bands, producers, musicians, and engineers to produce commercial quality recordings.
The front panel of the FireStudio Tube is loaded with two “SuperChannels” featuring Class A vacuum tube microphone and instrument preamplifiers along with full-featured analog limiters.
In addition to the two SuperChannels on the front of the FireStudio Tube, the back panel provides you with eight Class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers and six balanced TRS line inputs giving you a total of sixteen analog inputs. The FireStudio Tube also includes eight balanced TRS outputs, headphone output, and MIDI I/O for MIDI instruments, keyboards and controllers. This combination of microphone, instrument and line inputs is perfect for a band to simultaneously record drums, bass, guitar, vocals and keyboards without any additional preamplifiers.
