OVERVIEW

Includes USB interface, monitors, mic, stand, and cables.

This bundle includes the PreSonus AudioBox USB Recording System, an MXL 990 mic, Fostex PM0.4n studio monitors, Musician's Gear MS-220 Tripod mic stand, 2 x 5'. Live Wire 1/4" RCA Dual Patch cables, and a 20' Musician's Gear Lo-Z mic cable to get you started on the path to home recording.

PreSonus AudioBox USB

Capture your ideas wherever you are with the PreSonus AudioBox USB 2x2 USB recording system. The AudioBox USB is a USB bus-powered audio recording interface featuring 2 microphone/instrument inputs with 48V phantom power, 2 balanced TRS outputs, MIDI in/out, as well as Studio One Artist music creation and production software which has the same platform and intuitive interface as Studio One Pro but with an unlimited track count.

PreSonus Audio has won numerous awards for designing the quality microphone preamplifiers for all price levels. The AudioBox USB is loaded with preamps that deliver high headroom, low noise, and high gain to give you pure, full, and rich sound. Most USB recording devices operate at 16-bit sample rate and use converters with dynamic range of less than 90dB which gives you a pinched and relatively small sound. The AudioBox USB, however, uses professional-grade analog to digital converters with dynamic range of 102dB and 24-bit sample rate so that the digital conversion is big, quiet, and musical.

The AudioBox USB is USB bus-powered allowing you to take it anywhere inspiration hits. No wall warts, line lumps, or power cables. Just plug in to a powered USB port and you are ready to record. It's also housed in an all-metal chassis with metal knobs ready to withstand the rigors of travel. Toss it in your laptop bag and mobilize your music creation and production. Whether you want to record your shows, mix on the plane, or write songs in your hotel room, the AudioBox is ready.

MXL 990

The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with Shockmount has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4" gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording. Attractive vintage body style with champagne finish. 30Hz-20kHz frequency response. 130dB maximum SPL. Includes custom shockmount, mic stand adapter, and case. It requires phantom power.

PM0.4n Powered Studio Monitors

Since its debut the Fostex PM0.4 has earned a reputation for high performance and sonic clarity. The Fostex PM0.4n adds impressive good looks to an already stellar resume of sound reproduction. Need an attractive-looking speaker with great sound for installation in a club, bar, restaurant, or retail environment? No problem. With its compact size and wall mountability the PM0.4n fits right in. Available in a range of 5 high-gloss colors, this new monitor sounds even better than it looks. And it looks stunning.

2 Live Wire 1/4" RCA Dual Patch cables

Mono 1/4" male to RCA male dual cable with metal headshells. For serious-minded musicians, these cables have the strength and durability to withstand more than everyday use. Their sturdy construction enhances signal and performance. Flexible design eliminates kinks and twists for a tangle-free performance whether you're in the studio or on the stage. Their superior wiring allows your signal to be quiet, eliminating frustrating hums, buzzing, and crackles.

    . This overall is an outstanding package.
    I purchased this home studio package over a month ago. Being new at home recording I had to feel my way around a little, but this package made it easy. I am recording songs and making use of the unlimited tracks you get with this product. I have found that I need a midi to make use of the virtual instuments, but thats not an issue. My hat is off to Presonus for making a great product and Musicians Friend for making it affordable. I did have one problem at first downloading the Audio Box Interface but after I downloaded the Studio One program and registered on the Presonus site the download was there and it was a breeze. The microphone in the package has a good clear sound and the monitors are excellent. Everything you need is there and like I said even for a beginner it was easy. Thanks again for great products and great prices.
    Overall quality of everything the MXL microphone and the Fostex monitors and the Presonus gear is excellent.
    This is a fantastic package for the price.

    Buy the pieces separately. The microphone is ok to start, but it you want your music to sound professional it's not what you want. The audio interface has a good sound, as well as most, but is slightly limited in options. The Fostex studio monitors work pretty well, especially since the price can be quite high on monitors.

    My suggestion, if you want professional grade music, buy a better mic, the interface is good so you could stick with it or upgrade. The good price is intriguing, but i upgrade the mic.

    Comments about PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package:

    For a first timer trying to record my voice with karaoke track, I'm lost and a bit confused. There are no directions add fast d how to use the software. It says there are demos but heck if I can find any. When site seams useless. From what I have figured out, not much as far as changing your voice or adding echo and such.
    Otherwise its fun and seams like good quality equipment for the price. Very easy set up. Fun to plan around with. But lots on the software to try and figure out if you don't even know where to start.

    program is not too hard to learn, alot of fun, take's time though, if your a novice ,the tutorial's are very helpful!!! speaker's have great sound quality and are well built, audiobox usb is great, built well, microphone sound's great, extremely sensitve and good quality!! not crazy about the microphone cable though, could be better quality, fit's loose in mic jack, had problem's with cutting in and out, crackling, noise, (would recommend spending the extra $ on a mic cable of higher quality) as is the case with guitar cable's as well, you'll get better sound quality, reliabilty,, overall a good system for home recording though, i would recommend this to a friend

        This little setup definitely improved my homerecordings. It's small and compact, and is easy to use once you get it set up. I had a problem with the drivers. I went to the Presonus website, and for some reason, the website wouldn't let me download their most recent driver. There was an older driver on the website, but the driver made the playback poppy and scratchy. I was eventually able to get the hardware to work with Asio 4 all driver. Now it works great and is smooth. I imagine, if you can download the most recent driver from Presonus, that it works great as well. I gave this 4 stars because their drivers suck. Use Asio 4 All if you're having any issues.

        Very Nice

        Comments about PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package:

        I rated everything a 10 although I haven't yet used the Audiobox usb or the mic; however, the Fostex speakers and Studio One are amazing. Studio One defeats Audacity (which I was using) hands down. It's very simple to use, has a ton of features, and is aesthetically pleasing. The audio engine is crystal clear and as far as I've used it, latency doesn't exist.

        As far as the Audiobox and mic are concerned, they both seem very well built and are of professional grade. I did review searches on both products before my purchase and they both faired decently well.

        The Fostex speakers have a very nice flat response, so they don't "color" your sound; what you hear is as close to your true sound as you'll get. The bass is a little weak, so if you're mixing drum-n-bass, r&amp;b, hip hop, or anything where you need to hear the accuracy of lower hertz frequencies, you'll need bigger woofers. These little 4" do deliver a pretty tight punch though, making them ideal for "instrument" music (country, jazz, rock, metal, etc.). The highs and mids are exceptionally clear.

        Great package, no matter what level!

        By TomfromFlorida

        from Florida

        Comments about PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package:

        If you are new to home recording or a veteran, there are many uses for this package. Some of the other reviewers had some download problems and such - I had no problems - and that included the free upgrade to Studio One 2. Just follw the directions precisely and you will not have any problems - excellent value!
        Being new to the home recording world, I had feared that this package would be a bit complicated for me - boy was I wrong. It took less than 2 hours to record drums, bass, rhythm guitar, lead, vocals, and backing vocals. Very simple system to figure out with many drop and drag features, further simplifying the process.
        everything is built to the hilt - tough chassis, top quality cables included and the monitors are like little tanks! Built to last!
        Musicians Friend has bundled this unit around several different scenerios, one with monitors, others with headphones. The one with the smaller Fostex monitors fit my needs best and has proven to be the right choice for me. I believe that the headphones package would have been a bit limiting for my needs.

        Perfect 10!

        Comments about PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package:

        Everything you need right out the box. This is by far the best package you can get even if you are not on a budget. The PreSonus Audiobox USB Recording Package is ideal for home studio/ engineers that want to take their music to the next level. The XXL mic is so clear to be such an inexpensive one, it will blow you away. The mic stand is strong and sturdy, the monitor speakers are very powerful to be so small, and the USB Audiobox is perfect to be use with both desktop and laptop computers. I recorded all my music with the bundle on my laptop and everything works well together. Best investment you could ever make.
