This is the PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 (25th anniversary black). It has a 2x2 USB audio interface that offers Class-A mic preamps with 48V phantom power, MIDI I/O, as well as basic operability in a stable steel chassis that you can travel with, powered by bus—to reiterate, this is a fantastic choice for any producers, podcasters, singers and musicians who are recording at home or on the go. Especially since it comes with a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone and headphones with 50 mm drivers.
This AudioBox USB 96 has 24-bit converters that have sampling raes up to 96 kHz that will ensure the integrity of your signals. Each of the two XLR-1/4'' combo inputs allow you to record either dynamic or condenser microphones, or instruments like electric guitars, while allow monitoring with zero latency. You also have stereo 1/4'' monitor and headphone outputs that have independent volume controls—this gives the best hookup of speakers and headphones.
The AudioBox USB 96 has an interface bundled with Studio One Artist DAW software for Mac and for Windows, and this includes the Studio Magic plug-in suite, which has effects, virtual instruments, and third-party loops, software and instrument sounds.
