Product Description

Presonus Audio Box 44VSL  (PreSonus Audiobox 44 VSL)

The PreSonus AudioBox 44VSL is a 4 x 4 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface with 4 Class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers.

Using your computer and the bundled PreSonus Virtual StudioLive (VSL) software, the AudioBox 44VSL interface provides reverb and delay effects and the same Fat Channel compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ and high-pass filter as the PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer - all with inaudible latency.

Thanks to the power of VSL, the AudioBox 44VSL includes an 8x4 software mixer. As a result, with just an AudioBox 44VSL and your laptop or other computer running VSL, you can mix a studio session or a live show while monitoring and recording with or without real-time effects. This is all done simply and easily, with no hardware mixer, no outboard effects rack and minimal wiring, thanks to the tight integration between PreSonus hardware and software.
