The PreSonus AudioBox Studio Ultimate Bundle is a deluxe hardware and software recording collection that combines an AudioBox USB 96 audio/MIDI interface, Studio One Artist recording and production software, an M7 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone with a desktop tripod stand, Eris E3.5 3.5″ 2-way 25W studio monitors, a pair of HD7 over-ear headphones, and all the cables needed to interconnect this all-in-one solution for musicians and engineers wishing to produce professional music.
The AudioBox USB 96 offers two XLR-1/4″ combo inputs capable of recording microphones and instruments via its 24-bit / 96 kHz converters. The interface is bus-powered and lightweight, making it an ideal portable interface that is compatible with Mac and Windows computers.
The Studio One Artist software is an easy-to-use DAW that delivers unlimited audio tracks, MIDI, virtual instruments, buses, and FX channels. The software offers powerful drag-and-drop functionality and a single-window work environment. The software ships with 26 native effects and over 6GB of third-party software, loops, and instruments. Additionally, the supplied Studio Magic Plug-In Suite provides synthesizers and processors ranging from reverb to tube saturation.
The M7 is a large-diaphragm condenser with a cardioid pickup pattern, which offers focused directionality from the front, and solid off-axis rejection from the rear. The microphone produces a frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz and can handle a maximum SPL of 136 dB.
The HD7 headphones utilize 50mm neodymium drivers to deliver a frequency response of 10 Hz to 30 kHz with a sensitivity of 98 dB SPL. The leather earpads provide comfort for long listening sessions. Alternatively, use the included Eris E3.5 25W studio monitors to hear your mixes through Kevlar woofers and silk dome tweeters.
PreSonus® Eris-series studio monitors are used worldwide by audio engineers who need to hear every detail of their recordings. Eris E3.5 employs the same technology as the larger Eris models to deliver studio-quality sound, with a smooth and accurate frequency response. They’re compact enough to fit almost anywhere, but still offer robust I/O – you can connect them to nearly anything.
