Introducing the PreSonus AudioBox GO – Ultra Affordable Compact Audio Interface

PreSonus has just introduced a new compact and ultra-affordable USB bus-powered audio interface: the PreSonus AudioBox GO. Let’s take a closer look at this entry-level 2in-2out audio interface!

Let’s face it, if you work in the photo/video world, you probably don’t need a fancy audio interface with tons of audio inputs and outputs and features that you’ll probably never use. We’re not music recording studios, and our audio interfaces are usually hooked up to a pair of professional audio monitors, headphones, and sometimes a microphone, and not much more.

If you’re looking for a compact, easy-to-use, and very affordable audio interface, PreSonus has just released the AudioBox GO that can cover most of your needs.

PreSonus AudioBox GO Features

The AudioBox GO is a tiny USB-C bus-powered audio interface with dimensions of just 4.4 x 8.4 x 10.8 cm and a weight of 240 grams. It won’t take up much room on your desk or in your bag.

This 2-in-2-out unit features an XLR mic/line audio input with 48V phantom power, an instrument input, two 6.3mm audio outputs for connecting professional monitors, and a headphone output.

On the front of the AudioBox GO there are four knobs to adjust your headphone/monitor outputs and input gains.

This plug-and-play audio interface is compatible with Mac/Windows/iOS/Android devices. Plus, it comes with free Studio One Prime and Studio Magic software licenses. This bundle includes over $1,000 worth of plugins, software, and tutorials.

Price and availability

The PreSonus AudioBox GO is available now for $79.95. You’ll find a USB A to USB-C cable, four rubber pads, and the manuals in the box.

It will be hard to beat PreSonus in this entry-level market at this price. Indeed, the Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2×2, one of the most used units by content creators, costs $119.99. This new AudioBox GO is a no-brainer if you need basic audio functionality.
