    Details

    The Presonus Audiobox 1818VSL is the flagship of Presonus' recording interfaces range. Using technology derived from their well-respected Studio Live range of digital mixers, Presonus have produced a superb USB 2.0 audio interface which features 8 Class A XMAX mic preamps as well as ADAT and SPDIF expandability and includes on-board effects and mixing (EQ, compression, reverb, delay) both for latency-free monitoring while recording but also enabling the Audiobox 1818VSL to function as a standalone mixer.

    The 8 microphone preamps in the 1818VSL are Presonus' own XMAX preamps, used in the StudioLive range of mixers. XMAX preamps are Class A, high voltage preamps offering excellent performance, high headroom and low noise with any type of microphone. The first 2 channels also offer instrument inputs.

    The VSL part of the equation stands for Virtual StudioLive, as the processing that drives the internal effects in the StudioLive range of mixers is present in the 1818VSL. A 26 x 8 virtual mixer with EQ, compression, limiting, reverb and delay can all be used to create comfortable monitor mixes with inaudible latency, but also allows the 1818VSL to be used as a standalone digital mixer for live use. VSL enables you to easily manage the processing and mixing from your Mac or Windows PC and provides editor/librarian functions, making it simple to create and use a library of presets.

    Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL includes Studio One Artist DAW software, and gives you the tight level of integration you would expect from a hardware and software solution from a single manufacturer. And with PreSonus AB1818VSL Remote, you can control all features of AudioBox 1818VSL software (except Solo and Channel Link) wirelessly from an Apple iPad. The app provides multiple views of the key AudioBox VSL mixer and processing controls. And it's a free download from the Apple App Store!
