|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
This budget USB audio interface is the oldest in the AudioBox line as well as the cheapest. It's an effective, functional product that will be ideal for many home producers, we think. The fact that it comes with Studio One software is another big plus. For a reliable, low-price audio interface, this is a good choice.
It is only marginally more expensive than the more basic models and yet it delivers a lot more quality. That's because of the extra I/O options, which also make it suitable for big rigs or more demanding tasks. If you're serious about recording the best quality music, then we can recommend the extra outlay on this one.
