    Comments about Avid Mbox Mini - 3rd Gen:

    I was new to computer-based recording and was looking for a simple, yet high-quality audio interface. I didn't need a ton of inputs or MIDI jacks, so my attention fell on the Avid Mbox 3 Mini. It has one XLR combo input with phantom power, a second 1/4 input with guitar/bass level compatibility, two gain knobs on the front and the mix knob and volume control. The sound quality is second to none. This box does everything I need it to do. I've had zero problems with it. Every program I run (Pro Tools 9, Logic Pro, Studio One 2, Garageband) sees the interface and works flawlessly with it. I highly recommend this little guy if you seek a simple, high-quality audio interface that works with everything.
    It has everything I needed. One XLR/combo jack, another 1/4 input, phantom power, two gain controls, mix control and volume knob. Pads are engaged by pulling the gain knobs out.
    Sound quality is excellent! I can't praise this thing enough in the sound quality department.
    You will not find a better sounding, easier to use interface of this quality anywhere near this price.
