sarabalazic wroteI see, so it's either speakers or headphones, because there are only two outputs. I'll try that. Pray for me.
Not necessarily. You could connect your headphones to the Phones output on the rear (via the adapter) and connect the speakers to the Main Outputs (L+R) via the lead that has been suggested here and then you would have both at the same time.
The level to the phones is controlled via the headphone level on the front panel (the knob with the little headphone symbol under) and the speakers would be controlled via the knob marked Main on the front panel. So one or the other or both is possible.

Nope, I have a Behringer XR18 and a smaller UMC204HD. Both work fine.
The XR18 also doubles as an eighteen channel PA with 6 Aux buses and built in effects. Allows full 18 channel recording while doing its PA business too! The one drawback of the XR18 is 48K Maximum...But that is what I record at anyway.
The smaller box I got for when I don't need that many inputs (it only has two). But it goes up to 192K. I got the small interface for $79.00!
Do your research...A lot of people do not like the cheaper interfaces and say they don't sound that good.
I am not a professional...I am a hobbyist and it sounds good enough for me.
patm300e wroteNope, I have a Behringer XR18 and a smaller UMC204HD. Both work fine.
Oh, that's great news.......does your interface for 79.00$ sound good enough for you? I am over my budgert in debt already, so even that might be too heavy on me, but if it would work better than this.....I'd say what it is, but this is a Presonus forum, so one does not simply slag off Presonus products without consequences
I do agree with Neiby, your machine should work, and another interface may not fix whatever your issue happens to be. That being said the AudioBox on Sweetwater does have a couple comments similar to yours, but most people found no issues.
BTW, do not get the cheaper Behringer interfaces...They do not have drivers and rely on ASIOALL which can cause major issues...
This is the guy I have...Unfortunately, the sale is gone.

Neiby wroteAny interface should work, including the one you have. If the Audiobox 96 isn't working, I don't think you'll have better luck with another brand. They're all fairly similar as far as basic operation and setup.
This is a fact. If you can't get your Audiobox working, then the chances you will get something else working is slim to none as well. Just being honest... I'm sorry but this does not require an advanced engineering degree, it just requires following some simple steps.
It's time to get real here... Your problem is not with the interface, it is with what you are trying to use with it. USB speakers and a USB mic are not going to be compatible with ANYTHING you buy. You are going to have to invest some money into the proper equipment. It does not have to be a ton of money, but you have to invest some.
At the very minimum, you need...
A halfway decent computer (seems you have that).
Recording software (you have that).
An audio interface (you already have that - you do NOT need another one).
An XLR mic (even a cheap SM57 will be fine for your demos).
Real powered monitor speakers designed for recording (look at the Aris line) OR some semi-closed-back headphones. (You can accomplish all you want with headphones!)
Patience to follow directions or a buddy to come over and help set it up for you.
I don't mean to sound harsh, but you are trying to cut corners and back your way into this and it just can't be done. There is a bare minimum setup you need and if you don't have that, a new/different interface will NOT solve that problem for you. You will have the exact same problems!
Look here... https://www.presonus.com/products/Compl ... -Solutions
Any one of those packages will get you EVERYTHING you need and if you follow the directions IT WILL WORK. You don't need to buy one of those bundles because you already have the interface, but you can look at them and identify your missing pieces and fill that void. At the BARE MINIMUM you will need something equivalent to everything in the AudioBox 96 Studio bundle. https://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-96-Studio
There is an old saying that applies in this case... it's cheaper to do it right the first time.

It's mr. And you're more than welcome not to read my posts. I shall miss you dreadfuly, being as helpful and not at all needlessly nasty as you are.
As I have said, I have already spent 200$ on a mic, and a fair amount on speakers. For the Audiobox, the cable was damaged. Let me write this again, so people who have nothing better to do than talk about my walking around the block here have something new to feed on (by the way, honey, I got it, so I will flaunt it around the block all I want). THE CABLE Was damaged. Had to buy a new one. I read this was ok. It isn't, because nothing works now. That's why I asked if I should buy a new one. Nevermind. Have fun making fun of people who have nobody else to turn to for help. I'm off.

We're doing our best to help. We've explained in a fair amount of detail what you need to to do to make this work. Now you mention a bad cable. What cable are you talking about? How was it damaged? What did you replace it with? And how is that damaged cable the fault of the AudioBox 96?
Several messages previous to this one, people gave you instructions on how to hook this up and make it work. Have you followed all of those instructions?
Lets wrap this up, shall we? There are multiple people trying to assist you. Re read this thread, as all the answers are already here.
Please review the forum rules prior to posting. This thread has gotten pretty combative, and is in danger of crossing a line. Also remember, this community is comprised of users, not Presonus employees. People are here trying to assist on their own time, with no expectation of compensation. They are helping because they are good people, and they do not deserve to be chastised for it.
