The PreSonus AudioBox 44VSL connects to your computer through USB connection. It is a 4in and 4out interface that has 2 preamps built in and MIDI options as well. My band has been using this interface since March and the first thing that I noticed with it is how great the preamps are. I did not expect to get nice and quiet preamps that have a nice warm sound for such an affordable price. Though we do not use this interface for all of our recordings because sometimes we need more ins and outs but when we do use it, it never gives us any troubles. The audio connections are TRS, there are no digital inputs or outputs on the 44VSL.


We have not experienced any latency when recording this interface, it is not 0 latency though because the latency is so low that the naked ear can not hear it. The drivers are very stable, I am running this interface most of the time on a VISTA laptop and I have run it with Cubase and Reason. It has worked great on all interfaces.


Getting started with the 44VSL is pretty simple, once you get the drivers squared away it is pretty much plug and play. You just need to make sure you fully understand setting up an interface within your DAW software. In Reason it was very quick, it only took a few minutes and we were able to start using it right away. In Cubase it took a little more tweaking to get it to work like it does in Reason. The manual does come with it, it will help you set it up and get it running.


This interface is solid, and it is very affordable. I would recommend this to someone who is not recording that many tracks simultaneously and has a small or home studio. The sound quality when recording is top notch!
