Avid MBOX Studio USB-C is a powerful desktop music-production interface for home studio musicians, podcasters, DJs, engineers, producers and video sound technicians. Four Variable-Z microphone preamps and two dedicated instrument inputs offer the versatility to record small bands and host multiple podcast guests. Instantaneous creative inspiration is a given with the inclusion of Pro Tools Studio and MBOX Ignition Pack, which offer a vast collection of virtual instruments, loops, samples, stompboxes, guitar amp simulations, recording plug-ins and more. Low-latency monitoring ensures you’re hearing that everything you’re laying down is locked to the groove.

Speaking of monitoring, MBOX Studio provides two headphone outputs with dedicated level controls, and two stereo monitor outputs for listening to playbacks on two different sets of monitor speakers—just like in big studios. A variety of handy inputs and outputs include optical (8-channel ADAT or 2-channel S/PDIF), MIDI and Bluetooth, and there’s even a Hi-Z output to amp for reamping recorded guitar tones for ultimate sonic flexibility.

The Avid MBOX Studio is a one-stop shop for unleashing your imagination. Almost everything you need to record, build textures and beats, edit and mix is ready to go and at your fingertips.
