PreSonus Audio Electronics
iPad Control Leads PreSonus AudioBox
Interface Update
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, June 2012… PreSonus™ is shipping AudioBox 1.2, a
free update that significantly enhances the performance and versatility of their
AudioBox 1818VSL interface and also provides a number of new features for its
AudioBox™ USB, AudioBox 22VSL and AudioBox 44VSL audio/MIDI interfaces.
One of the biggest enhancements for the AudioBox 1818VSL is that support has
been added for AB1818VSL Remote for iPad®. With this free app, you 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.
As a result, users can use an AudioBox 1818VSL and USB-connected laptop 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,
manage the monitor mixes from your iPad while dedicating your 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.
With the AudioBox 1.2 update, all AudioBox-series interfaces become compatible
with USB 3.0—a rarity among audio interfaces.
This update also provides enhancements for specific AudioBox-series models:
• 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 recalibrated to match the RMS meters in PreSonus' Studio One
• All AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have 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.
This free update is recommended for all AudioBox-series users. AudioBox 1.2
can be downloaded from the Technical Support section of the PreSonus Web
