Class A All the Way
PreSonusâ?? award-winning analog signal processors and microphone preamps have long been popular among top professionals and home enthusiasts alike. So when you see the name PreSonus, you expect top audio quality and the Presonus iOne Audio Interface delivers. It also delivers excellent performance, thanks to Presonus' newest sweet-sounding Class A mic preamplifier and professional-quality, 24-bit converters that sample at up to 96 kHz. Power amplifiers are classified primarily by the design of the output stage and are designated Class A, B, AB, D, G, or H. In a Class A preamp, the output circuits are always on for the entire cycle of signal swing or the bias current flows at all times. As a result, Class A preamps that use quality components, such as those in the Presonus iOne Audio Interface has the most linear design, with the least amount of crossover distortion. And they deliver purer, clearer, and more musical results than the Class AB designs that are found in many preamps.
Loud and Clear
Great preamps are crucial to great sound but to get that pro sound, you also need outstanding converters. And to hear what you're doing, you need a headphone amp that keeps up with the rest of the design. That's why PreSonus uses high-quality 24-bit, 96 kHz analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters with 105 dB of dynamic range. The DACs feed a pair of balanced ¼-inch, line-level outputs and an ultra-loud, crystal-clear headphone output. If you can't hear yourself with Presonus iOne Audio Interface you had better visit your audiologist for an ear exam or wait until that low-flying jet passes over. That is, unless you're sampling jet sounds. You can totally do that with Presonus iOne Audio Interface, an iPad, and Capture Duo.

This does exactly what it's intended to do, record one input. I've never had any quality issues, even when dialing in gain on the unit. (I.e. no pre-amps.)
Mine came with Studio One, which I've grown to like quite a bit.
One trouble I always had with this, you couldn't dial in the mix of playback/input when recording over existing tracks. This made me lower the track volume -15dB in software, which can be annoying if you forget to put it back when mixing down and/or exporting stems.
