Ultra-mobile AudioBox™ iTwo bus-powered, 2-channel, USB/iPad audio/MIDI interface for Mac, Windows, and iPad
Award-winning Studio One® Artist DAW software for Mac and Windows

When you see the name "PreSonus," you can expect top audio quality—and the ultra-mobile, 2-channel AudioBox iTwo delivers, thanks to high-performance Class A microphone preamplifiers and professional-quality, 24-bit, 96 kHz converters.
USB bus-powered, it's compact, ruggedly built, and designed to work perfectly with Studio One recording software and Capture Duo for iPad but also works fine with other audio software that supports ASIO (Windows), Core Audio (Mac), or iOS (iPad).
AudioBox iTwo is a mobile interface in the best sense of the term. It weighs just 0.616 kg and can sit on a tabletop or fit in the pocket of a backpack or laptop bag. Since it's powered by the USB bus, you don't have to mess with a "wall wart" power supply or AC cord. And it's built to withstand the rigors of travel.
Studio One Artist
Studio One Artist lets you work quickly and stay focused on your inspiration. Incredibly easy to learn, it offers unlimited tracks and plug-ins and delivers features not normally found in entry-level DAWs. Access powerful editing tools without wading through menus. Load and save audio clips, MIDI files and, effects by drag-and-drop. Upload your mixes to Nimbit directly from the DAW. Studio One makes it easy.
Capture Duo for iPad
Laptops are great recording tools but if you really want to go mobile, you need an iPad, AudioBox iTwo, and free Capture™ Duo two-track recording software for iPad. Based on PreSonus' Capture live-recording software for StudioLive mixers, Capture Duo lets you record two stereo tracks with up to 24-bit, 96 kHz fidelity using the AudioBox iTwo. It also works with any other iPad interface that supports Core Audio for iPad, including the iPad's built-in mic.
Here's the kicker: You can record with Capture Duo, then wirelessly transfer your recordings directly from your iPad to a Mac or PC running Studio One. Then edit, sweeten, overdub, and mix with the power of a world-class DAW. Songs and individual tracks can also be copied using iTunes if the iPad is connected to the computer with a USB cable.
If two tracks isn't enough, no worries! Just go to the App Store and purchase the low-cost, multitrack Capture for iPad. With Capture for iPad, you can record up to 32 tracks. Other than track count, it's identical to Capture Duo and equally easy to use.
M7 Condenser Mic
Get your mic collection off to a good start with this professional studio microphone. The versatile large-diaphragm design makes it perfect for recording a wide range of sources including voice, acoustic guitar, percussion, and more. Condenser mics are the overwhelming choice of recording studio professionals, due to the very small mass that must be moved by the in-coming sound wave. This means you can capture musical details, harmonics, and subtle nuances that would get lost with dynamic mics. From vocals to acoustic guitar recordings, you'll hear the difference.
Large diaphragm microphones like the M7 tend to "warm up" a sound and are a great choice for recording vocals and for recording instruments when you want a "deep" sound.
HD7 Monitor Headphones
Whether you're monitoring, tracking or mixing, you can expect impressive sonic performance from your HD7 headphones.
PreSonus' high-definition HD7 headphones take advantage of a patented, semi-open sound chamber to deliver exceptionally deep low frequencies with a balanced and yet powerful bass punch.
