Good interface
Sashiimi, 03.05.2018
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
This is a good interface, however, mine came with the 48v channel sending out 80v for some reason and I couldn't plug two 48v dependant devices without it starting to make noise.

You should have a powered usb hub for this interface just to be sure it receives all the juice it needs to function properly.

The audio quality is good, preamps are fairly quiet and it is really really well build.

if it wasn't for the fact that it came broken in the first place, I'd easily give it 4+ stars, however, seeing it as a recurrent problem online, I'm afraid I cannot.

The drivers sometimes bug and I'm left with no sound and have turn the interface on and off.

If you're planing to use this with a guitar, you should have a DI Box because with RG421's quantum pickups, on the lowest gain possible, it still clips slightly.

Overall, it's a worth considering interface, with great build and sound quality. However, i'd recommend you checking out a newer presonus one or a Focusrite interface if the price difference doesnt bother you. Look for one with a pad button if you plan to use a guitar.

Get this blue baby, you'll love it
simeon9446, 23.02.2020
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
This blue baby is one of the best of its kind. And here's why. It's compact, it's metal and for the god's sake, it's BLUE!! What I like very much the placement of inputs and knobs. At the front face, there are two inputs for XLR or 6.5 mm jack. So you can easily connect your microphone and/or instrument. There's a knob for controlling headphones and there's a knob for controlling speakers. And also there is a knob that can control mix between inputs and playback. Good product, good price, I am glad I've bought it. Well spent money. Definitely recommend.

Great Device!
JohnyS, 23.11.2019
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
I can't think for a better device that a beginner producer could start with. Except the devices features - 2 inputs, 2 midi (in and out) and outputs - it comes with Studio One Artist 4 which is so far is proven do be a really easy to handle software for a beginner. Also, the device's serial number gives you a variety of plugins, instruments and effects which are all you need to start producing music.
