Mobile hi-end studio

SigiFlam, 22.11.2012
I bought the AudioBox 1818, to be able to record up to 8 channels at the same time mobile in high quality. A key reason for this device was the possibility to provide several stereo monitor mixes (also with effects) with low latency. A second wish of mine was originally, the device with ready programmed channel settings live also as a "stand-alone" - mini mixer can be used. This is unfortunately not possible and goes from the descriptions on the web unfortunately also not clear. It needs in spite of the built-in effect DSPs always a connected PC, otherwise the box does not play!

For recording, however, it is a high-quality tool. The installation of the software (driver, Studio One) with registration was a bit time-consuming due to the same updates, but worked on a newer WIN7 notebook and internet connection problem-free. Problems existed on one of my older notebooks under WIN XP. Here, the performance was not satisfactory, despite the large buffer, the older notebook always came to the point of cracking at the recording. The combination AudioBox + Studio One definitely needs a powerful, modern PC hardware. If you know all this and respected accordingly, the device is an excellent tool to make mobile high-quality recordings. In the Mic-Preamps I have so far neither sound nor in the signal-to-noise ratio a little negative noticed - and so it should be ...

Mobile as well as station studio with high quality audio data and low latency

Horst41, 20.04.2013
Overview:
The AudioBox 1818VSL surprises with excellent low-noise pre-amplifiers, which convince with a good sound. The very low latencies also allow for live use. For monitoring, good effects (reverb, delay) are available, of which 2 can be used simultaneously.

The processing is very solid and the price / performance ratio is right.

Sampling rates up to 96kHz at 24bit (also with ADAT) allow high-quality recordings.

With the ADAT interface, 8 additional inputs / outputs can be added.
SPDIF-In / Out, MIDI-In / Out and Sync-Out round off the various connection possibilities.

The perfect headphone output provides a high output power.

Software:
The driver includes a graphical VSL interface (Virtual Studio Live). So you have a mixer surface, which can also create monitor mixes.

Each channel has gate, compressor and limiter, as well as a parametric 3-band EQ.

A single assignment of the inputs is possible for each of the 8 outputs. The outputs are considered by VSL actually as a stereo pair, but also the mono usage is possible. This only applies without the effects of the driver, because they always use the outputs in pairs in stereo! VSL works independently of a DAW.

The operation of the VSL elements is first habituation need, but then goes however fast. Direct inputs eg from the keyboard are not provided.

To use all possibilities without restriction of VSL, one comes around a DAW not around.
The included DAW I have not yet tested.

Installation:
The installation of the driver runs smoothly (I only tested Windows), if one is meticulous to the instructions. The public Beta V1.2.1 as a download from the manufacturer brings on some computer HW significant improvements - try out. The drivers I have tested under Windows XP, Windows Vista x32 and Windows 7 x64. The installer fails only with operating systems that are not installed on drive C: \. A manual installation is feasible for experts. The change between AudioBox 22VSL, 44VSL and 1818VSL at a computer is the first time problematic and requires manual intervention with the driver - then folds also automatically.

Technical advice:
The achievable latencies depend strongly on the performance of the computer. Stand-alone operation without a computer is not provided, but this is not a disadvantage. The manual provides sufficient technical data.

Manufacturer Support:
The PreSonus support does a good job in my experience.
