For many part-time studio enthusiasts, and a whole heap of mobile recordists, this one might just right. A few extra inputs than the tiny AudioBox22VSL, and significantly smaller than the rackmount AudioBox1818VSL, this 4x4 version will slot nicely into many a laptop bag.

With just an AudioBox 44VSL and your laptop or other computer running VSL, you can mix a studio session or a live show featuring, say, a guitar duo with vocals, a small band, a DJ rig with mixer and stereo synthesizer, or a panel discussion - all while monitoring and recording with or without real-time effects. And you can do it simply and easily, with no hardware mixer, no outboard effects rack, and minimal wiring, thanks to the tight integration between PreSonus hardware and software.
