Get up to 96kHz resolution via USB 2.0
The “96” in AudioBox USB 96 refers to the expanded capabilities of PreSonus’s ultra-affordable 2-channel interface, which allows you to record in full professional 24-bit/96kHz digital resolution. That makes the AudioBox USB 96 not only great for project studio recording, but it also makes it an excellent tool for serious engineers who need an inexpensive mobile recording interface for hooking up to a laptop and tracking overdubs and other tracks when needing to bring the studio to the source. And since it’s fully USB bus powered, you don’t even need to make room in your laptop bag for an extra power supply when you record on the go.
