You’ve become obsessed with podcasting. You know your idea for a new program on how best to raise show goats will take off like a dog chasing a squirrel. First, you need some equipment, but what? A microphone? Headphones? A USB audio interface? What about software? How do you decide what to buy?

Instead of spending hours researching each piece of equipment, all you need is the PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 Studio Hardware and Software Recording Kit. This hardware and software bundle is all you’ll need to get started – with some top quality equipment to boot.

Everything comes with this bundle: audio USB interface, a large diaphragm condenser microphone, comfortable over-the-ear headphones, Studio One Artist Edition, Studio Magic plug-in suite and all the cables you’ll need. PreSonus is good about that.

This bundle is perfect for beginning podcasters, budding music producers and artists sticking their toes into the digital recording water.

First, let’s look at the PreSonus AudioBox USB 96. The audio USB interface comes with two front-panel input channels, two combo microphone and instrument inputs, headphone jack with level control, mixer control, MIDI I/O and main output level control. The equipment is powered by USB and has a sturdy construction.

The PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 is the third iteration of PreSonus’s audio USB interface. This 25th Anniversary edition comes in all black with an all-metal chassis and metal knobs. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.

Next, the bundle includes the PreSonus M7 large-diaphragm condenser microphone, a mic stand, cloth carrying bag and a 10-foot XLR cable. PreSonus says this mic was designed for performers and entry-level podcasters who need great quality on a budget.

The PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 bundle also includes PreSonus HD7 over-the-ear headphones. They’re lightweight with comfortable ear pads and an 8-foot connection cable. The headphones feature high resolution drivers, a precision-tuned acoustic chamber and extended bass response. These headphones are easy to wear and just what you need for a long day of recording, mixing or editing.

But all that equipment needs software. And this bundle has you covered with its popular Studio One Artist Edition software. All you need is Studio One to record, produce, mix, compose, master and perform your music. The software has integrated tools that can take you from concept to concert. PreSonus says Studio One is the “DAW that does it all.”

Other features for Studio One include a drag-and-drop workflow, Harmonic Editing, a boatload of plug-ins, Mix Engine FX, Scratch Pads, Clip Gain Envelopes, Impact XT, Sample One XT, Presence XT, Notion, score, drum and piano roll views, Sound Variations and third-party plug-ins.

As if that wasn’t enough, PreSonus also threw in Studio Magic, which includes tutorials, sound libraries, virtual instruments and effects plug-ins to use with Studio One.
