Please check out these two guides, which will assist you in setting up your AudioBox:

1. This guide covers common AudioBox setup and configuration issues, as well as addresses basic reasons for the device to not seem to function properly:

2. If the above guide does not resolve your issue, the driver may need to be uninstalled and reinstalled properly. Below are instructions for how to do this:

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10:

If you are hearing sound from the computer you first need to make sure you have already installed the drivers for the AudioBox. You will most likely remember, but if not open the Windows Device Manager and you should see a listing for "PreSonus USB Audio Devices, AudioBox" or something like that. If not install or re-install the AudioBox driver, not the Studio One software.

If you have the driver installed, then go to the windows menu -> control panel -> hardware and sound -> select "Sound". You will see two tabs there labeled "Playback" and "Recording". Select the "AudioBox USB Audio" in each of the Playback and Recording tabs and set it to be the default device. If you are using a DAW application to playback or record, also go to the settings in the application and make sure that the playback and recording settings also are selected for ASIO USB AudioBox also.
