PreSonus launches AudioBox iOne & iTwo audio interfaces + Capture for iPad

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced AudioBox iOne and AudioBox iTwo, two new USB powered audio interfaces.

PreSonus AudioBox iTwo

These next-generation mobile interfaces include PreSonus’ easy-to-use Studio One® Artist DAW for Mac and Windows, new Capture™ Duo recording software for iPad, and a Nimbit® Free account for online direct-to-fan distribution of music, merchandise, and more. With Capture Duo or Capture for iPad and an AudioBox iOne or iTwo, you can record with an iPad, then wirelessly transfer your recordings directly to Studio One Artist. The result is an integrated, end-to-end, mobile solution that includes everything needed to record, edit, mix, and share music anytime and anywhere.

The AudioBox iOne sports one instrument input and one mic input, while AudioBox iTwo offers two combo mic and switchable line/instrument inputs. Both feature high-performance Class A mic preamplifiers with phantom power and 24-bit, up to 96 kHz converters with 105 dB of dynamic range. The DACs feed balanced ¼-inch, line-level outputs and a loud, clear headphone output with independent level control. The AudioBox iTwo also includes MIDI In and Out. Each interface has an internal analog mixer with zero-latency monitoring, enabling you to monitor recorded tracks and overdubs without audible delay.

Small, lightweight, and USB bus-powered, the AudioBox iOne and iTwo can sit on a tabletop or fit in the pocket of a backpack or laptop bag. They’re built to travel, with a metal chassis and knobs and jacks secured directly to the enclosure to reduce strain on the internal circuit board.

Both interfaces work with any recording software that supports Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows).

PreSonus has introduced Capture for iPad and Capture Duo, two new audio-recording apps for Apple iPad that are based on the company’s lauded Capture live-recording software for StudioLive mixers.

PreSonus Capture

Capture™ Duo two-track recording software for iPad, free from the Apple App Store, is based on PreSonus’ Capture live-recording software for StudioLive mixers. Capture Duo lets you record and play two tracks with 24-bit, 96 kHz fidelity and includes basic mixing and editing as well as an integrated metronome.

PreSonus also offers Capture for iPad, which can record up to 32 tracks with the same features and 24-bit, 96 kHz fidelity. Capture for iPad is available from the Apple App Store for an expected price of $9.99.

Capture features

  • Simple, intuitive, mobile recording solution for Apple iPad®.
  • Capture™ Duo records two stereo tracks; Capture for iPad records up to 32 tracks.
  • One-tap recording.
  • Records at up to 24-bit, 96 kHz.

And the display’s real estate gives users sufficient room to navigate easily around the app,” said Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

VST Connect Performer features
