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:

        This is my first purchase of recording equipment since the 90s. I gave it up a while back. I am very impressed with the Presonus audio box and kit at this price. The audio box itself is a nice solid box and doesn't need external power. The driver installed with no problems. The software installed with no problems. The audio box worked as soon as I plugged it in. There is a little bit of latency that I was able to address by adjusting the mix between the audio box and PC. (I'm using windows 10, i7 cpu, 12GB memory). The Studio One software is an amazing software package, even with the entry level license which has some limitations. The software is complex, not necessarily intuitive as it's really aimed at individuals with experience in higher end multitrack recording software. If you've never used multitrack recording software, you may find it hard to learn especially since you're support is pretty much limited to Presonus forums, youtube and whatever else you can find on the internet. Presonus instruction manual covers the bare minimum to get started. The keyboard is very entry level board and the keys feel cheap; but it works right out of the box. The microphone is sufficient enough for getting started. Overall, I was very impressed at this price point.

            The specs state that it will run on XP but Presonus no longer supports XP and I had to upgrade my laptop to Windows 7 to be able to install it. I did contact Musicians Friend support about a week ago and let them know. After upgrading I did get it installed after a couple of attempts but you must do it in the right order and watch for the 32 or 64 bit downloads, you need to select the correct download for your system.
            If you don't have experience working with a DAW and a Midi controller, don't expect a quick "plug and play" situation. Even this version requires time to learn and set up properly. It has a lot to offer and multitude of functions. You need to refer to the help files and there is a series 100 very short videos (2 minutes +/-) sponsored by Presonus are very good. I won't mention the name here but if you search for them you should find them fairly easily.. It's be a good experience so far !!!

            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.

            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.

                  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.

                              this was an excellent choice for starting out recording
                              it does as advertised although it does have a learning curve
                              i would definitely buy it again

                                Very cool unit. Instructions are very poor. Hard to get setup, but once unit is setup the sky's the limit.

                                    Running windows 7 - Core i3 6 RAM - SSD HD - Toshiba laptop, Tascam VL-S5 monitors.

                                    I was planning on using Reaper as my DAW but so far have used the included Studio One Artist because it is relatively easy to learn. There are a lot of instructional videos on the web for Studio One.

                                    The Audio Box USB installed fine after downloading the latest drivers from Presonus. I was able to immediately plug my guitar in (through a VG-88) to the interface and get a signal in the DAW.

                                    The PS-49 took a bit longer, I had to spend some time with the software to get the sound modules added to tracks so the keyboard could have sounds.

                                    I have not tested the mic yet.

                                    Headphones are good. I used to have Sony MDR-7506 headphones so using that as a gauge I would say these are not quite the same as the high end phones but they sound fine and are comfortable.

                                    The Studio One software has an ample amount of sound modules (bass, keys, synths, drums, etc) and I am still going through them. I still may switch to Reaper but for now I want to utilize what is included with Studio One. A review I read said that the sounds are not exportable (say to Reaper, Pro Tools, etc).

                                    I still have other sounds to download from Presonus but have to wait until I get a larger SSD. So far just the starting download package used about 16GB.

                                    A great deal at the price point I purchased it at. Very pleased so far.

                                    Primary uses for me: Guitar based song composition, document ideas, practice.
