PreSonus AudioBox GO
The AudioBox GO is the smallest, lightest, most portable audio interface PreSonus makes, ideal for musicians and producers on the move who want to record to a mobile device - but it’s also great for compact laptop-based home studios! Connect a professional XLR microphone to the studio-grade XMAX-L preamp and capture your voice with warmth and clarity.
The same convenient combo jack also lets you connect line-level sources like keyboards and drum machines, and you get a dedicated high-impedance input for guitars and basses. Wherever or whatever you’re recording, the AudioBox GO has you covered.
Grab and Go! PreSonus' smallest sound card is here!
With the PreSonus AudioBox GO, you can record wherever sound takes you. Track some acoustic guitar down by the lake, or lay down some soaring vocals in that super-reverberant stairwell in your friend’s apartment building. Or collect some gritty samples for your next beat down at the subway terminal. PreSonus AudioBox GO will get you out of the house and make recording the adventure that it should be.
PreSonus AudioBox GO is a pocket-sized dynamo with all the connections you need to connect professional XLR vocal mics, guitars, synthesisers, headphones, and studio monitors, so it’s also fantastic for compact laptop-based studio setups where desk space is a hot commodity. It's USB class-compliant, so there are no special drivers or applications for you to download and install — and it’s bus-powered, which means no fussing about with power supplies.
Best of all, you’ll be making music from day one, because the PreSonus AudioBox GO includes Studio One Prime — the most intuitive digital audio workstation around—as well as Studio Magic, a bundle of over £1000 worth of plug-ins, software, and tutorials.
Connect anything and sound great.
The PreSonus AudioBox GO features a PreSonus XMAX-L preamp, designed with over 25 years of recording-studio knowhow. Not only does it ensure that your recordings will sound clean and articulate with low noise, it also provides 50 dB of gain and +48v "phantom power" for professional XLR condenser microphones. The combo jack doubles as a line-level input that you can use to record keyboards, drum machines, and more! A dedicated Instrument input lets you connect an electric guitar or bass, so you can record guitar and vocals at the same time.
Small is beautiful.
True to its name, the PreSonus AudioBox GO is so powerful and loaded with features, you’ll want to take it with you everywhere — so PreSonus made it small enough to toss into your guitar case or your laptop bag. PreSonus AudioBox GO works great with Android and Apple mobile devices — but also with both laptop and desktop computers, making it an ideal interface for small home studios.
It’s USB class-compliant, so there are no special drivers or applications for you to download and install. And because it’s bus-powered, there’s no power supply to fuss around with.
Loud and clear.
The PreSonus AudioBox GO lets you connect professional studio monitors like the PreSonus Eris-series to its balanced Main outputs, while also providing a surprisingly powerful Headphone output that lets you listen in loud and clear. You also get an easy-to-use Mix control to create a monitor mix by blending the audio from your hardware inputs and your software so you can record vocals while listening to the tracks you’ve already recorded and stay inspired.
World-class recording software included.
While the PreSonus AudioBox GO audio interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows audio-recording software, it comes with a free license for Studio One® Prime, giving you a complete recording solution. Built by creative people for creative music production, Studio One is easy to learn and enables you to compose, record, and produce your masterpiece without getting distracted by the tools. And when you’re ready to hit the road, download Capture Duo for free and enjoy two-track recording on the go.
