Presonus Audiobox 44 VSL

The Presonus AudioBox 44VSL is part of Presonus’s USB 2.0 audio interface lineup. Consequently, it pushes hardware and software integration to its fullest extent. It works in tandem with a DAW and Presonus’s proprietary VSL software to provide delay, reverb, compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ, high-pass filter, and a Presonus’s StudioLive™ 16.0.2 digital mixer. In addition to featuring a 24-bit/96kHz sample rate, the unit utilizes Presonus’s XMAX™ preamps for optimal signal clarity.
