pre_1818vsl.JPGIn Stock
The PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL advanced 18 x 18 USB 2.0 recording system boasts revolutionary hardware/software integration to deliver reverb and delay effects and the same Fat Channel compression, limiting, semi-parametric EQ, and high-pass filter as the acclaimed StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer, all with inaudible latency.

The 1818VSL offers two front-panel mic/instrument combo inputs and six mic/instrument combo inputs, true phantom power (switchable in two banks), and eight line-level outputs. ADAT optical I/O provides eight more channels of input and output (at 44.1 or 48 kHz; four channels at 88.1 or 96 kHz). S/PDIF coaxial digital I/O adds two more channels, bringing the total to 18 audio input channels and 18 output channels. It sports the same high-headroom, Class A XMAX preamps as the StudioLive mixers and has 24-bit, 96 kHz converters with 114 dB dynamic range for clear, clean audio.

The included Virtual StudioLive (VSL) control software lets you easily manage the processing and mixing from your Mac or Windows PC and provides editor/librarian functions, making it simple to create and use a library of presets. It offers the same library of more than 50 Fat Channel presets that comes with StudioLive mixers. These presets were created by professional musicians and engineers and let you instantly set up dynamics processing and EQ for vocals, guitar, and much more.

Seamlessly integrated with the included Studio One Artist DAW and VSL, the AudioBox 1818VSL interface works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software.
