USB Audio Interface with 2-In/2-Out, 2 x XMAX Microphone/Instrument Preamps, MIDI I/O, and Included Studio One Artist DAW Software


Professional Quality Wherever You Record

You don’t need to have a million-dollar studio to sell a lot of records. Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska was recorded in a hotel room. Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago was tracked at a cabin in the woods. And can you guess where Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes was produced? The AudioBox 22VSL delivers professional-caliber 24-bit, 96 kHz audio quality in a rugged, compact enclosure, allowing you to create your next hit whether your studio is in your home or in your backpack.


PreSonus AudioBox 22VSL Features:

  • Class A XMAX mic / instrument preamp
  • Combo XLR mic and balanced 1/4" instrument input
  • 2 balanced 1/4” main (L/R) line outputs
  • MIDI In/Out
  • 48V phantom power for condenser microphones (global)
  • Powered via USB bus—no wall wart!

Professional-Quality Sound

The AudioBox 22VSL features the same award-winning Class A XMAX preamps featured in our StudioLive AI mixers, found in recording studios and venues the world over. Record and play back at sampling rates up to 96 kHz, with remarkably low noise. If that’s all geek to you, here’s the simple version: This thing sounds great.

Perfect for Guitarists, Singer/Songwriters, and Podcasters

The AudioBox 22VSL’s two front-panel combo mic/instrument inputs make it a great choice for a singer/songwriter or for a couple of guitarists who want to collaborate or jam. A mix control blends the input signal with the computer playback stream for zero-latency monitoring so you can overdub new tracks without hearing annoying delays. With its MIDI I/O, you can connect the AudioBox 22VSL to keyboards, sound modules, and control surfaces. These features make the AudioBox 22VSL a simple, affordable, mobile solution for podcasting, recording sermons, and teaching music, too!

Roadworthy and Ready to Travel

We gave the AudioBox 22VSL a heavy-duty steel chassis and metal knobs, so it can take a serious pounding and remain completely reliable. Its screaming-loud headphone output ensures you can hear your music loud and clear, even in noisy locations. And it’s USB bus powered, so you can record with it anywhere you can use a laptop. So drop it in your laptop bag, mount it in a rack, or slap it on a tabletop.

World-Class Recording Software Included

Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One® 3 Artist DAW, the AudioBox 22VSL interface works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software.
