I bought the system to do some home recording. I do a radio show and the use of the microphone with the system is fine. Hooking up the keyboard for doing music has been impossible for me despite spending several hours on blog sites, with the company, etc. This was my first crack at trying to do home studio, so I admit that I am a novice, but I would say that if you think you can just plug it in and "go" you may be in for some hassles. You will need a computer with a lot of memory to start with. If you know your way around electronics, it would seem that it would be an adequate set up. If anyone knows how to get the MIDI connections to work, let me know.

Comments about PreSonus AudioBox Music Creation Suite:

I'm no expert with any music recording. In Fact, I'm a complete beginner with no introduction or mentoring at all, so I'm kind of shooting in the dark. I got this on a great Stupid Deal, so it was perfect for someone like me that doesn't know what to expect and needs to learn music creation. It's nice in that both my guitar and a mic can plug in and play into GarageBand.

The mic and headphones seem like a nice low end addition to package. However, as stuff I was doing into GarageBand sounded not very sharp, I upgraded to some good headphones and a better mic. The sound improved slightly, but not sharp. So, my guess would be that this AudioBox is probably not up to top sound quality.

However, I will admit that since I am a complete novice with sound recording, I may be more at fault that the interface. It's still fun to play with, and nice that it's small and convenient.

        Comments about PreSonus AudioBox Music Creation Suite:

        This package includes everything you need to start recording on your computer. However, it all hinges on the software that you download from the Presonus site after you buy the package. Unfortunately for me the software does not work - it crashes before it fully loads - so the various bits of hardware are essentially useless. I'm trying to run it on Windows 7 on a Lenovo thinkpad, a fairly standard set up. Customer service has been pretty much uninterested and ultimately useless in trying to get this resolved.

        Bottom line: caveat emptor. Unless you're an IT professional, buying this package is a gamble as to whether you'll be able to actually use it or not.

                be aware the system requirements they state are for a very old version of the Studio 1 software. upon entering your code you will get the latest up to dater version (as of now studio 1 3.xx) which requires a much beefier system than what the description specifies. Extremely good value for the money and a great way to get started recording if you have nothing else to start with this does include everything you'll need.

                  I got this product in the mail two days ago and I can't put it down. This kit includes everything you need to get you started on building a home recording studio (With the exception of a microphone stand, pop filter or studio monitors). The interface is rugged, small and built like a tank (I don't believe that it can withstand being driven over by a truck like in the video, but it is strong enough to withstand touring and being thrown into a backpack). The headphones seem flimsy but offer great quality (To my novice ears, at least) and the condensed microphone picks up every single detail of your voice).

                  I've read some reviews where users complain that they had to call customer support to help them set up the drivers, but I have had no such problems. I literally opened Garageband on my MacBook Pro, connected the interface and MIDI keyboard (Entry level but still good) and played it recognized them automatically.

                  All in all, I recommend this product to anyone who wants to get into recording or a hobbyist who wants to start a home studio or record proper demos for songwriting with a band.

                    it does as advertised although it does have a learning curve
                    i would definitely buy it again
