Know a budding audio producer or musician who is looking to get started recording at home? This combo deal is an excellent introduction to the world of PreSonus. It includes an AudioBox iOne recording interface, Studio One Artist 3 software, and your choice of speakers: The Ceres 3.5BT or 4.5BT.
The AudioBox iOne lets you record guitar and vocals (or whatever else you’d like to stick a mic in front of) to your computer or iPad. The real power of the iOne, however, is the integration between the included Capture and Studio One. You can track some basic recordings onto your iPad, and then wirelessly transfer them to Studio One on your laptop or main workstation for mixing and editing. Record where you’re most comfortable, rather than at a desk.
The Ceres are great entry-level studio monitors, but they also double as wireless Bluetooth speakers for your living room or den. They’re designed by the same great minds who design our pro-level studio monitors like Eris and Sceptre, but are a little more living-room friendly, including a bevy of connectivity formats: 1/4″, RCA, BlueTooth, and good ol’-fashioned speaker wire. Wow! And of course, they’re ready to connect to a subwoofer when you’re ready to upgrade.
