PreSonus AudioBox iSeries Audio Interfaces: iOne and iTwo

by Nikolozi Meladze

Excellent choices for mobile musicians, sound designers, and podcasters, the USB 2.0 bus-powered AudioBox iOne and iTwo provide high-quality audio I/O for Mac®, PC, and Apple iPad®. These compact, ruggedly built interfaces offer high-performance Class A mic preamplifiers, record 24-bit audio at up to 96 kHz, and include powerful, easy-to-use Studio One® Artist DAW for Mac and Windows and Capture™ Duo recording software for iPad.

These interfaces look great. I’ve been holding out for iConnectAudio4+. It has all the features I want in an audio interface. It can digitally stream MIDI and audio between an iOS device and a Mac using the audio passThru technology. This means I can easily integrate iPad music apps into my production. But, I’m not sure how much longer we’ll have to wait before it’s finally released. So, I might have to grab iTwo (I’m not a big fan of the name by the way) instead. It looks great, has a big volume knob, supports iPad and will be shipping soon.
