PreSonus is shipping AudioBox Version 1.2, a free update that PreSonus recommends for all AudioBox-series users. V. 1.2 significantly enhances the performance and versatility of PreSonus' AudioBox 1818VSL interface and also provides a number of new features for its AudioBox USB, AudioBox 22VSL and AudioBox 44VSL audio/MIDI interfaces.

PreSonus AB1818VSL Remote for iPad

AudioBox 1818VSL adds support for AB1818VSL Remote for iPad. With this free app, users can control virtually every parameter in Virtual StudioLive for AudioBox 1818VSL from an iPad, including volume, pan, aux sends, FX buses, and Fat Channel parameters.

An AudioBox 1818VSL and USB-connected laptop can function as a full-featured mixer/recorder for small gigs, rehearsal spaces, and mobile churches, with the iPad serving as a touchscreen mixing surface. In the studio, users can manage the monitor mixes from an iPad while dedicating the computer screen to a DAW.

A firmware update rescales the preamp tapers on the AudioBox 1818VSL to add more headroom; Virtual StudioLive for 1818VSL now sends all channels to outputs 7/8 (headphones) by default.

PreSonus states that with the AudioBox 1.2 update, all AudioBox-series interfaces become compatible with USB 3.

With this update, the AudioBox USB gains a new, optimized Windows driver for improved performance and a new Windows control panel to adjust buffer size and sample rate. The meters in Virtual StudioLive for all AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have been re-calibrated to match the RMS meters in PreSonus' Studio One DAW. PreSonus has integrated all AudioBox VSL-series interfaces into Studio One Cue Mix, providing volume and pan control over monitor mixes with the same near-zero latency that Virtual StudioLive software provides.

AudioBox 1.2 can be downloaded from the Technical Support section of the PreSonus Website.

AB1818VSL Remote is a free download from the Apple App Store.
