There is no doubt that there are more digital interfaces available today than bottled water brands in 7-Eleven (and all of us original Mbox owners are kicking ourselves). But PreSonus stepped it up by presenting a package for beginning engineers, songwriters looking to record demos, bands on tour, and the like. Retailing at just under $300, the Audio Box Studio comes complete with HD7 headphones for monitoring/playback, PreSonus’ M7 condenser mic, StudioOne DAW and the AudioBox Digital Interface—which has two XMAX mic/instrument pre-amps with the ability of 48+ phantom power, and a pair of balanced TRS outputs. This bundle is compatible with both MAC and PC. See http://presonus.com.
