Software upgrade

What is it?A free update that significantly enhances the performance and versatility of the AudioBox 1818VSL interface and includes new features for AudioBox USB, AudioBox 22VSL and AudioBox 44VSL audio/MIDI interfaces.DetailsOne of the major enhancements offered by the upgrade is support for AB 1818VSL software Remote for iPad. With this free app, it’s possible to control virtually every parameter in Virtual StudioLive for AudioBox 1818VSL from an iPad, including volume, pan, aux sends, FX buses, and Fat Channel parameters. This makes it possible to use an AudioBox 1818VSL and USB-connected laptop as a full-featured mixer/recorder for small gigs, rehearsal spaces, etc - with the iPad serving as a touchscreen mixing surface. 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 and all AudioBox-series interfaces become compatible with USB 3.0 - a feature still rare among audio interfaces. The update also provides enhancements for specific AudioBox-series models: AudioBox USB gains a new, optimised Windows driver for improved performance plus a new Windows control panel to adjust buffer size and sample rate. The meters in Virtual StudioLive for all AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have also been recalibrated to match the RMS meters in PreSonus’ Studio One DAW. All AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have also been integrated into Studio One Cue Mix, providing volume and pan control over monitor mixes with the same near-zero latency that Virtual StudioLive software provides.And another thing…The free update is recommended for all AudioBox-series users and can be downloaded from the Technical Support section of the PreSonus Web site.

PLASA was the occasion for the first appearance anywhere of the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI mixer. The desk was presented on the Source Distribution booth alongside its bigger brother, the 32.4.2AI, which was launched earlier in the year.
