      Comments about Avid Mbox 3 and Pro Tools Express:

      I already have the Mbox Mini 3rd Gen.I bought it when Avid released them,5 years ago and don't remember dropping or abusing it. Just out of nowhere the recording began to have tremendous robotic sound which literally interfered with the music on playback only.So I switched out cables,re-formatted PC,and could not figure it out. very weird and unusual. Anyway It was just in time because the price couldn't be beaten so I jumped on it.Very familiar with these types of interfaces.but I must say when it lights up all 8 LED lights flash in a row from top to bottom very cool.worked it now for a week or so and pristine sound.did not use the software from avid that came with it because I'm already with PT10....EXTREMELY happy and content with this item.I run win8 64 on a gaming system. high end vid card [does not matter]64GB's memory,top of the line mother board and intel 4820k but all that does not matter what im trying to say is ZERO latency what goes in comes out the same way this item is entertaining and fun as a hobby. very pleased all around hope this info helps you,

        Comments about Avid Mbox 3 and Pro Tools Express:

        I decided to upgrade my Pro Tools SE fast track bundle, for the Mbox with pro tools express, it offers far more options and sounds, However if it had not been for using Pro Tools SE (starter edition) I feel I would be lost with this product, the starter addition got me started with pro tools, and how to operate the program, the program that comes with this (express) is pretty big, and it has quiet the learning curve, but once you learn you really start to take off!

        Comments about Avid Mbox 3 and Pro Tools Express:

        I am in college studying audio engineering so I know what Im doing when it comes to this stuff. I bought the Mbox and began to record with it. The headphone jack was busted. I returned it for another one. The replacement had the same problem, with an additional issue in preamps. I was extremely surprised to receive TWO junk products from Avid. I have lost complete faith in that company.
