PreSonus AudioBox GO
PreSonus AudioBox GO

The AudioBox GO audio interface is equipped with a PreSonus® XMAX-L preamplifier, the manufacturer says that it provides not only low noise, but also 50 dB gain, and there is also +48 V phantom power on board for professional XLR condenser microphones.

The combo input also doubles as a line input and can be used to record keyboards or a drum machine, while a dedicated instrument input lets you plug in an electric guitar or bass, so the AudioBox GO allows you to record guitar and vocals at the same time.
