PreSonus AudioBox: All-In-One Radio Equipment

For this guide we’re using the PreSonus AudioBox Studio series. It’s great because it comes with everything you need to setup your station for live broadcasting, field recording, and podcasting. It comes with:

  • Microphone (M7): Condenser mic, ideal for spoken word.
  • Headphones (HD7): Professional studio monitoring headphones.
  • Audio Interface (AudioBox): AudioBox iTwo with simple USB connector.
  • Wires: XLR to XLR and USB (A) to USB (B).

Connecting Everything Together

Connect the USB cable from the audio interface to your computer.

Plug in the XLR cable to line 1 in the audio interface and connect it to the microphone.

Hook up the headphones from the jack at the back of the audio interface, then adjust the front dials to set the volume levels.

You should be able to hear yourself clearly without the clipping light flashing (on the front of the audio interface).

To broadcast on your radio station use the BUTT broadcaster software. Enter your streaming details (these can be found in your Radio.co Dashboard) and connect to start sending your shows online to your listeners. That's it, you’re now live!
