Presonus AudioBox iOne 2x2 USB iPad Audio Interface
Like all PreSonus interfaces and digital mixers, the AudioBox iOne comes with their award-winning, all-muscle, no-bloat Studio One® Artist recording and production software for Mac® and Windows®. Studio One is incredibly easy to use thanks to its clear, straightforward, single-window design and powerful file browser with extensive use of drag-and-drop. As a result, you can record your inspirations quickly, without getting distracted by the tools. Tasks that would require multiple steps in other DAWs can be done in just one or two steps with Studio One. In addition, Studio One Artist includes a wealth of professional-quality plug-ins, virtual instruments, sounds, and loops. If you want even more, there’s a low-cost upgrade path to Studio One Producer and Professional.
Studio One Artist is excellent for Mac and Windows but you probably want to record on your iPad too. That’s why PreSonus created free Capture™ Duo two-track recording software for iPad. Based on PreSonus’ Capture live-recording software for StudioLive mixers, Capture Duo lets you record two stereo tracks using the AudioBox iOne or any other iPad interface that supports Core Audio for iPad, including the iPad’s built-in mic. Because it’s preconfigured for the AudioBox i series interfaces, which are class-compliant for the iPad (so they don’t need drivers), you simply connect the AudioBox iOne to your iPad, launch Capture Duo, and you’re ready to record. If two tracks isn’t enough, no worries! Just go to the App Store and purchase the low-cost, multitrack Capture for iPad. With Capture for iPad, you can record up to 32 tracks with 24-bit, 96 kHz fidelity.
When you’ve finished mixing your masterpiece, it’s time to get it out to the world—easily done with your included Nimbit Free account! Nimbit is the leading direct-to-fan service; it enables you to sell music and merch to your fans from beautiful storefronts in Facebook, Jango Internet Radio, PledgeMusic, and on your own Web site. Nimbit is international, too, so you can choose a language for your storefront and accept currencies from around the world. Nimbit was designed to take care of the hard stuff, so you can stay focused on your music and your fans. It handles payment processing for your sales, and if you like, you can let Nimbit do warehousing and fulfillment for your physical goods. That’s not even close to all it can do.
PreSonus designed AudioBox iOne to excel as a mobile interface, so they built it to take a serious pounding and remain completely reliable. They’re built like small tanks, with a metal chassis and knobs/jacks secured directly to the enclosure to reduce strain on the internal circuit board. So toss the AudioBox iOne or iTwo in your backpack or laptop bag and take it along! Wherever your travels take you, your AudioBox i-series interface will be ready to perform.
