The original AudioBox USB from PreSonus was my first audio interface in high school. It was a great box then and the box just keeps getting better. For anyone needing a kick start on their recording capabilities, this little box is the way to go. It comes with a digital download for Studio One Artist, and with the new and improved Studio One 4, you will have a crazy intuitive and user-friendly DAW to work with a simple-yet-powerful interface. The size of the AudioBox makes it portable, and its sturdy solid metal chasis means you will not need to worry about it being damaged. Get yourself one and see for yourself!
