Hi there, I have received my Presonus Audiobox 44VSL yesterday, and I'm having quite alot of issues in understanding how to work it out.

I have M-Audio AV-32 speakers, that I originally bought to fit my audio interface. I realise though, that to plug the speakers in my Interface, I need a right and a left, but I just have 1 wire that I usually plug into my computer. Do I have to buy other wires/extensions? Is there something I'm just doing wrong or I really have to change my speakers? I've seen someone work it out with logitech speakers, so I'm pretty sure I can work them out too. Also, even when I'm using my headphones, there is signal in my software (Studio One Artist) but I can't record, can't hear metronome, can't see any activities or even change the sound of my guitar.

Thanks for the help in advance, I am not used to audio and it is exhausting, I just want to compose and record finally.

Hey there so the problem you might be having has to do with your cable. You should be using a rca to 1/4  like this one:

Plug the monitors to the main out in your interface, then make sure your mix and main knob are set right in the interface and you should be good to go.
