Are you expecting it launch automatically? It's not going to. You need to browse the disk and install it manually by double clicking on the installer.

when i plug in the audio box., along with the new mic i got, which is shure. i am getting late feedback, before i even click on studio one i still get late feed back. is there something in the computer of my pc windows seven that would cause me to receive late feed back from the mic? i mean on the right side it is collaborated but it isnt that loud, but the left side is loud but its late feed back. my headphones work properly , i played regular music with them and its still good. all the plug ins are in properly. i dont have the recording thing on beat delay or stereo or any of that either. it just gives me late feed back and it throws me off when im trying to record. but when i record. it sounds perfect on both sides. it dont make sense to me. is it my audio box that malfunctioned?

Nick,

What you're experiencing sounds like system latency. Check your buffer settings. Set them as low as you can without them clicking and that will be as good as your computer can do.

Hey guys!
I am having trouble with recording anything through the 1818vsl. I am using it as an audio interface with Pro Tools 10. When I record-enable an audio track and check my levels with an sm58 (or any other instrument) everything sounds fine until the levels get to just under peaking. They don't peak into the "red" area on the levels meter but instead the levels stop at one sound level and all I get is this horrific distortion of whatever sound is coming out of my speakers. I am wondering if this is an issue with the Audiobox or with Pro Tools? I've checked with some other people and they seem to think I am somehow overloading the interface. I have my mic and my synthesizer in the line inputs because i thought the mic preamps were the culprit but i am still having the same issue. I am on a Mac running Mountain Lion. Can someone help me?

That may be the preamp bug. I'll assume you are using the drivers off the disk that came with the 1818. You need to go to the website and download the latest driver. That will fix the preamp clipping issue.

Go here http://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-1818VSL/downloads

Download the Beta driver.

Hello there!
I have been using my AudioBox USB with my Studio One v2 software for a while now (roughly 6 months or so). Just this past weekend I picked up a condenser mic because I was tired of the limited space a standard dynamic mic grants. But before I go any further, some details:

Windows 7 64 bit.
8 gb RAM
AMD FX 8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz
Recently updated the driver to the latest available for 64bit, since the latest-latest is only for 32bit.

My issue involves utilizing the condenser microphone. I enable 48V before plugging the USB in. With my headset on and the mixer switched to "INPUT" volume pretty high, I can hear my voice as well as my guitar playing on the other channel. With Studio One, however, the track is showing zero communication from either guitar or microphone. Even if I crank the "PLAYBACK" volume all the way up. The issue begins even before I start Studio One. When I plug the USB in (48V engaged), Windows tells me that it does not recognize the USB interface. I went through a long process of attempting to reinstall the driver. Just to note what I have done: When installing the driver, the installer asks you to plug in the USB, unplug it, and then replug it. I tried various combinations of plugged with and without 48V engaged. Every time I had 48V engaged when installing, the installer would stall and then fail making me restart the operation. It would only install with 48V turned off.

To confirm: When 48V is not engaged, I can record just fine with my dynamic mic and my guitar. Zero problems. I can even find Audio Box from my "Recording Devices" in my system tray; however, once 48V is engaged I can no longer find it there.
I am at a loss right now. No other recording programs read Audio Box when 48V is engaged.

Can anyone help? Did I provide enough information?

Welcome to the forums!

First of all you'll get more/better responses if you post a NEW topic in the CORRECT forum.....this one is for the VSL series.
The AB USB has it's own forum:

http://forumsarchive.presonus.com/forums/show/49.page

Before you re-install your drivers you must first perform a proper un-install. This procedure MUST be done properly.
Instructions for this can be found here:

Is this a laptop or a desktop? Your USB port is most likely not supplying the proper amount of current and engaging 48v phantom power is taking it over its limit. Try plugging into a "powered" USB hub and then into your USB port on the computer.
Good Luck

When I try to record, I can barely hear my voice and it sounds muffled out, Nonetheless, there is late feed back in one ear phone. I can still make beats on the studio one artist and I can stil listen to the beats through the audio box into my head phones nice and clear but I can't when I Use my Shure Mic.

If you have the VSL and S1 opened and monitoring both the same input, that's when you get crazy delay and weird sounding stuff. If you are using S1 and only recording, just turn off the VSL by clicking on the blue light. If you are live, just use the VSL.

If you want both, read the manual.

Now that I have it installed on Windows 7, I have ran into a few (big) problems that have stopped me from recording.

Problems:
1. Recording quality is blatantly staticy, crackly and poppy despite having the AudioBox USB Audio Interface settings turned all the way down. It is picking up and over amplifying every little sound. (It is much worse when turned all the way up, of course.). Did not have this problem when running Windows XP.
2. Only able to record in stereo channel, even when selecting to record in mono and only records the right channel.
3. AudioBox USB is not recognized by the Presonus Studio One Artist Software.

Drivers? I have all of the drivers up to date and working correctly, except for the "PCI Bridge" driver, which I cannot get to work.

Equipment? The AudioBox and Microphone worked fine when running Windows XP.

I do not want to have to uninstall Windows 7 and reinstall Windows XP.

Any solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
