Recommended Accessories

The PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL is an 18x18 single space rackmount USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface with 8 Class A XMAX preamplifiers.

Using your computer and the bundled PreSonus' Virtual StudioLive (VSL) software, AudioBox VSL-series interfaces provide reverb and delay effects and the same Fat Channel Compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ and high-pass filter, as the PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer - all with inaudible latency.

With high-end 24-bit, 96 kHz converters, Class A XMAX preamps, ADAT optical I/O, S/PDIF coaxial I/O, word clock output and MIDI I/O, the AudioBox 1818VSL is a great choice for project studios, performing bands, school music labs and a wide variety of corporate installations and other contractor applications.

Thanks to the power of VSL, the AudioBox 1818VSL includes a 26x8 software mixer. As a result, with just an AudioBox 1818VSL and your laptop or other computer, you can mix a studio session or live show featuring a full band - all while monitoring and recording with or without real-time effects. This is all done simply and easily, with no hardware mixer, no outboard effects rack and minimal wiring, thanks to the tight integration between PreSonus hardware and software.

NOTE: This is a specially priced product for educational institutions. Please call us at 800-356-5844 for more information on how to place your order. A faxed purchase order from your organization is usually required to fulfill this order at this price.
