    Okay, I know this is a very specific thread but if anybody just happens to know anything about either two of these that would be very helpful!

    I posted the thread in this section of the forums (Recording Gear and Equipment) because that is what I really want to do, and apparently the Zoom B3 is an audio interface as well, it just has a multi-effects pedal and all that jazz etc. :)

    Do they more or less do the same thing and do they both work with DAW's in the same way?

    The Zoom B3 is roughly £149 and the PreSonus Audiobox is roughly £119.

    Any help is appreciated!

    The audiobox has XLR/jack combination inputs, you'll probably get lower latencies on the audiobox, and you have 2 inputs. In other words, if you want to record a little demo or maybe one instrument at a time, and want effects for normal use then the B3 will probably do. If you want to do proper recording then the Audiobox will be better. I use a DigiTech BP355 to record bass tracks every now and again for a mate. It does the job fine but when I tried recording a whole band with it it was a PITA.
  3. i think audiobox is much better i.e. A/D/D/A converters are much better,dsp is better,and,hell,it's 24bit/48khz which can not be said about the zoom...
    one other thing is,with audiobox you get studio one software,and bundle of loops/samples,and with the zoom you get only the zoom and that steinberg LE software(and all of those steinberg LE products,somehow,don't work properly...)
    i'm using it,and i must say it's a killer for that price....
    full metal chasis,old school knobs,neutrik inputs.....'t is very,very good...
    and i never had no problem with it..

    If you like to try something different for recording, definitely check out the zoom b3. it'll give you a variety of effects, amp and cab models. it'll make your recordings sound more unique. I plan to get one myself. I'm really curious on what the zoom b3 has to offer.
