Get this blue baby, you'll love it
simeon9446, 23.02.2020
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
This blue baby is one of the best of its kind. And here's why. It's compact, it's metal and for the god's sake, it's BLUE!! What I like very much the placement of inputs and knobs. At the front face, there are two inputs for XLR or 6.5 mm jack. So you can easily connect your microphone and/or instrument. There's a knob for controlling headphones and there's a knob for controlling speakers. And also there is a knob that can control mix between inputs and playback. Good product, good price, I am glad I've bought it. Well spent money. Definitely recommend.

Nice simple interface with MIDI.
Riccardo D., 24.09.2018

The AudioBox USB 86 is good. No boutique preamps of course, but it's built like a small tank and the sound is clean without audible artifacts. Most importantly for me, it has MIDI. That's why I chose it over similarly priced Focusrite products.

One small gripe I have is with the gain knobs. Their physical arrangement is less than immediate to grasp (I admit this is a minor issue). Also, I don't like the input/playback balance knob. I would have preferred to have separate potentiometers, or at least a signal path/mixer application in the audio card driver bundle (RME or MOTU style).

The software that comes with the card isn't bad at all, but Studio One is a crippled version that won't load VST/VSTi's, making it almost useless as a real production DAW. The provided plugins are really good - but remember, not VST/VSTi format, so you can only use them with this limited version of Studio One. Lexicon wouldn't even reply to my many messages asking for authorization info, so I wrote it off. Don't count on Lexicon plugins with this bundle.

Overall, I'm very happy with this card. I use it mainly for small edits on a secondary computer, with little recording (quick fixes on direct bass, synth noises). It works quite well, and I would choose it again if I only needed 2in/2out.

Solid audio interface
the_metaleon, 21.12.2019
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
Bought this interface a while back, it's been consistently good, no glitches in the audio, no connectors issues, easy to use, clear sound, and Presonus drivers work in many DAWs without any problem.

The only minor issue that someone may have (I haven't had this issue, because of my setup), is that the headphone output is in the back, and it might be inconvenient for some setups where you can't have easy access to the back of the interface.

In conclusion, this is an inexpensive and brilliant interface from Presonus, I highly recommend it!

Good USB interface
georgebranekov, 14.04.2020
· Assumed from Presonus AudioBox USB 96
I used this exact same box several years ago so I decided to buy again this one. It is a great buy for the money - a dual channel, OK pre-amps, build quality is great, drivers work flawlessly (tried on Win 7 some time ago, currently running Win 10, no issues - works straight out of the box), it even has MIDI in/out if you want to use it with some MIDI gear, input latency is low (to the point it doesn't really matter). One thing I would have preferred to have is a -20dB pad switch or something of the sort as you need to be careful with line signal, the knobs go only down to -10dB for line input. I had some peaks using some guitar gear, however, if you keep this in mind you can mitigate it quite alright. Some minor bleeds here and there, but nothing deal breaking for me. Good product. Software is also nice to have as a bonus.

Good first recording interface.
Silverbullet , 21.12.2017

Total beginner in home recording. The AudioBox 96 is affordable, easy to set up, and comes with Studio One DAW. Works for me as there is plenty of online help/education, and I'm getting to grips with it nicely. I'm getting good sounds from guitars, bass, and virtual instruments, especially drums. Quality for almost no money - this will get you started in home recording easily. I'm happy with my purchase.
