Comments about Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL 18 x 18 USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've had this interface for about three years now, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get an 8 mic input interface. PREFACE it is only 8 mic inputs, and you cannot daisy chain it to another audiobox, Presonus does however make an 8 channel interface that it can connect to via light pipe. Anyways this is a great interface. Very in depth, and if you're not familiar with how DAW's work it might be a bit overwhelming at first. Studio One Artist is more than enough to get you started, and the VSL live sound program is great. Make sure to keep the drivers updated (especially on PC) and you should be good to go. Happy recording

        Comments about Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL 18 x 18 USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface:

        If you have a newer computer move on. This will not work with USB3 ports. Very poor support! Presonus have not updated the drivers in 2 years and blame every one else for the issues (Intel, Apple, Microsoft etc). Try a RME or a Focusrite. They work just fine on the same systems, inc USB3! I recommend a Focusrite 18i20.
