Showcased by HHB at the recent IBC show, PreSonus has added new audio interfaces to its AudioBox line-up.

The AudioBox 22VSL, 44VSL and 1818VSL comprise a series of compact, rack-mount USB 2.0 interfaces with integrated software that provides the dynamics processing and EQ of a StudioLive-series mixer with latency low enough for recording and monitoring with effects in real time.

All three AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have high-headroom, class-A Xmax preamps with 48V phantom power; 24-bit, 96kHz converters with 114dB dynamic range; and PreSonus’ 150mW headphone output. All three models also provide Midi I/O and zero-latency monitor mixing.

In addition, they offer reverb and delay effects with dedicated effects buses and the Fat Channel compression, limiting, three-band semiparametric EQ and high-pass filter found in the new StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer. Processing is handled on the host computer using bundled PreSonus Virtual StudioLive (VSL) software. VSL also provides complete editor/librarian functions and more than 50 Fat Channel processor presets. Like all PreSonus interfaces, the new AudioBox VSL-series units ship with PreSonus Studio One Artist DAW (Mac/Windows) and support Core Audio and ASIO, so they work with virtually any recording software.

AudioBox 22VSL

AudioBox 22VSLThe 2-input/2-output AudioBox 22VSL offers two combo mic/instrument inputs and two balanced LR main outputs, and is housed in a steel case. With the included VSL software, it provides two stereo effects buses with reverb and delay and Fat Channel dynamics processors, EQ, and high-pass filter on both inputs and both DAW returns. The AudioBox 22VSL is expected to be available in October 2011.

AudioBox 44VSL

AudioBox 44VSLThe 4-input/4-output AudioBox 44VSL offers an 8x4 software mixer with low-latency, Fat Channel processing for each analogue input and DAW return, plus two stereo effects buses with reverb and delay. The 1Ž2U rackmount interface offers two mic/line inputs, two mic/instrument inputs, two balanced main LR outputs, and four additional balanced line outputs. The AudioBox 44VSL is expected to ship in November 2011.

AudioBox 1818VSL

AudioBox 1818VSLThe AudioBox 1818VSL sports two mic/instrument inputs and six mic/line inputs, all with Xmax preamps; eight-channel Adat I/O (four channels at 88.1kHz or 96kHz); stereo SPDIF I/O; Midi I/O; and word clock output. WIth the included VSL software, the AudioBox 1818VSL provides a computer-based 26 x 18 (22x14 at 88.1 or 96 kHz), ultra-low latency mixer with two stereo effects buses for the reverb and delay plus the Fat Channel processing from the StudioLive 16.0.2. The AudioBox 1818VSL is expected to ship in November 2011.

The new AudioBox VSL-series interfaces do not replace the current AudioBox USB, which remains part of the PreSonus line.
