The PreSonus USB is a great soundcard. It enhances the listening audio quite a bit because of the 48KHz audiorange. There are 2 audio inputs, Either XLR and 6.3 mm jack, for microphone or musical instrument input.
However since the audiobox uses a 48kHz instead of default 44kHz sampling,this can cause havoc to sound for instance in skype giving nerfed and glitchy sound.
There is a configuration needed to be changed in pulseaudio to accommodate this problem.
In the config file /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
change these lines:
- default-sample-rate = 44100
- alternate-sample-rate = 44100
- default-sample-rate = 48000
- alternate-sample-rate = 48000
Pro-tip: comment this line out in /etc/pulse/default.pa to prevent volume going up and down on skype events.
