    A premium, high-performance, 4x4 audio interface for Mac and Windows with the latest version of Avid's popular production platform.

    This special kit gives you a quality audio interface with the enhanced version of Avid's popular music production platform to not only inspire you, but to get your ideas from concept to completion.

    Mbox 3rd Gen
    The Mbox is designed by the same engineering team behind Avid’s top-of-the-line Pro Tools"HD systems. That means you get the exceptional audio quality and ease of use enjoyed by commercial studios in the comfort of your own home, project studio, or wherever inspiration takes you.

    Sound amazing with Mbox
    Record, edit, and mix performances—with stunning sound quality—using the professional-grade Mbox audio interface. Easily connect mics, instruments, monitors, and other analog, digital, and/or MIDI gear with your computer to capture and create studio-quality productions.

    Just pair Mbox with your favorite audio recording or music creation software such as the included Pro Tools 9 or Logic, Live, Fruity Loops, Cubase, and more. No matter what you choose, you’ll always sound amazing, as Mbox gives you the sonic clarity of interfaces costing much more.

    Pristine quality, powerful performance
    Get best-in-class audio quality, exceptional performance, and the lowest possible latency in everything you do with Mbox, featuring professional-grade converters, advanced recording technology, and a premium analog signal path. And with Avid’s stringent testing standards, you’re assured of rock-solid performance in even the most demanding environments.

    Work the way you want
    Get the flexibility to work in more ways than ever. Use Mbox with Pro Tools (not included) for maximum speed, ease, and additional functionality (such as the Pro Tools 9 multi-function button)—and get total session compatibility with Pro Tools studios worldwide. Or get superior performance when you use Mbox with any Core Audio- or ASIO-compatible software, such as Logic, Live, Record, Reason, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar, and more.

    Create effortlessly with extras
    Mbox comes packed with advanced features, making it even easier to get great results. Tune your guitar, bass, and other instruments using the integrated guitar tuner. Prevent distortion when tracking louder sources using the same professional-grade soft-clip limiter found in Avid’s Pro Tools HD Series interfaces. And set up more pleasing cue mixes with reverb using the onboard DSP.

    Pro Tools 9 redefines one of the world's most popular, most advanced music and audio production platform with a completely re-architected, open version of Pro Tools software, giving you what many users of past versions have asked for—and so much more.

    Work with an audio interface—or without. Create bigger, better-sounding mixes with more tracks, Automatic Delay Compensation, and other pro features—all included as standard. Open your workflow to projects created in other audio and video software—and to the entire Avid Artist Series and Pro Series (formerly Euphonix) console/controller line. With Pro Tools 9, you can compose, record, sequence, edit, and mix the way you want in more ways than ever.

    Capture Your Creativity
    Work the way you want
    With Pro Tools 9, you get more recording flexibility than ever. Connect mics and instruments and get multitrack audio recording capabilities when you pair Pro Tools software with your favorite Avid audio interface or third-party Core Audio- or ASIO-compatible interface. Record virtual instrument performances through a MIDI keyboard or controller, or record and create music and audio with just your computer and the software alone for ultimate portability.

    Capture high-quality sound
    Whether you're tracking vocals, guitars, voiceovers, sound effects, or an orchestra, or recording virtual instrument performances, enjoy great-sounding audio without compromise. Capture high-resolution audio—up to 24-bit/192kHz—when you use an Avid or third-party audio interface with Pro Tools software. And get best-in-class sound with the included groundbreaking virtual instruments.

    Nail the right performance
    Let your spontaneity shine. Use Loop recording to record multiple takes of a performance on the same track, one after the other, to keep things flowing when you're in the zone—great for guitar solos or voiceovers. You can also create complex drum tracks using it with MIDI Merge, enabling you to build up tracks by merging new beats into the same region with each recording pass.

    Punch your way to perfection
    Nobodys perfect, but with Pro Tools 9 you can create seamless performances with nondestructive QuickPunch or TrackPunch. Quickly fix mistakes in audio tracks as Pro Tools punches in and out of record mode, replacing the questionable section as you perform with the playback. For easier file management (and the truly confident) use DestructivePunch to maintain a single audio file—no matter how many punches you do.

    Slow down and record comfortably
    Having trouble keeping up? With Pro Tools, you can pull off technically challenging parts by slowing down the session tempo, recording the performance at a more comfortable pace, and playing it back at normal speed—Elastic Time and Pitch will keep things in tune. You can also create interesting effects recording at normal speed and then playing back at different speeds.

    Stretch your creativity with Elastic Time and Pitch
    Freely experiment without the time or effort investment. With Elastic Time, you can change the tempo or timing of any music or sound file—or an entire composition—on the fly, without cutting up a single sample of audio. With Elastic Pitch, you can fix wrong notes, create harmonies, and transpose regions—in real time—without altering the tempo.

    Make changes on-the-fly
    Forget having to manually stop and restart playback to make changes to your mix or configuration—instead, you can make many common changes on the fly in Pro Tools 9 during playback. Create and edit regions, add or remove tracks, copy inserts and sends, change I/O routing, and more—all changes will dynamically update in real time.

    Craft sound with precision
    Shape and fine-tune your audio, instrument, and MIDI tracks with professional, sample-accurate audio editing tools. Create a flawless performance by comping together tracks from multiple takes. Get more flexibility when importing tracks with the full Import Session Data dialog. Speed up editing with the Smart Tool. Place sounds perfectly in sync with picture. Smooth transitions with crossfades. Everything you need to perfect your tracks is available right from within a single Edit window.

    Get where you need to go fast
    Instantly navigate to one or more sections within your session to speed up your editing and mixing workflow. Simply set location markers at specific points in the timeline, edit selections, or even a set of track display settings, and you can quickly recall each specific location at any time with a simple keyboard shortcut, ensuring Pro Tools keeps up with your pace.

    Join groups for easy editing and rearranging
    Easily rearrange songs, edit loops, and make global changes across multiple tracks in one fell swoop by grouping audio and/or MIDI regions together as a Region Group. For more complex sessions with lots of automation, create VCA groups in Pro Tools HD software or Pro Tools 9 with the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option, giving you another level of gain control over groups that already have automation.

    Snoop out grooves with multitrack Beat Detective
    Start things off on the right beat with Beat Detective, a powerful tool that enables you to analyze and adjust timing across multiple tracks. Quickly tighten up uneven drum performances. Change up the feel or groove of a beat, and keep your rhythm section "in the pocket" by extracting the timing and groove from a drumbeat and applying that groove template to the bass part.

    Unrivaled Audio Mixing
    Achieve the best mixes possible automatically
    Get great-sounding, phase-accurate mixes with Automatic Delay Compensation (ADC). Mix in stereo or up to 7.1 surround (with Pro Tools HD 9 or Pro Tools 9 and the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option). And automate every element in the Pro Tools environment (rather than "riding the faders" in real time) to add life and ensure the best mix—from track volumes, mute, and panning, to every plug-in parameter.

    Get the sounds you want with Pro Tools plug-ins
    Create better sounding mixes using the collection of included sound-processing, effects, and instrument plug-ins&mdash:you can insert up to 10 plug-ins per track. And expand your creative palette with plug-ins from Avid and our Pro Tools Development Partners for almost anything you can imagine—from instruments to EQs, compressors, reverbs, amp emulators, noise reducers, surround encoding, and more.

    Grab control of your mix
    You can use a mouse to make changes one at a time, or mix faster and easier using a hardware control surface. Get unrivaled, fully integrated, hands-on Pro Tools control with a choice of Avid control surfaces to fit your needs and budget, including ICON consoles and C"24; full EUCON integration with MC Mix, MC Control, MC Pro, System 5-MC, System 5, and more; and third-party control surfaces.

    Make Music
    No instrument? No problem
    Easily create parts for practically any musical instrument using great-sounding virtual instruments, a MIDI keyboard/controller or your mouse, and the built-in Pro Tools MIDI Editor. Get started with the included virtual instruments and audio loops, and expand your arsenal with virtual instruments from Avid and third-party audio designers.

    Get inspired with full MIDI and compositional tools
    Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production. Assign key signatures, create and move notes, transpose pitches, build dynamics, rearrange sections, and sculpt every note to perfection in the MIDI Editor. You can also view all MIDI parameters simultaneously for easier editing. and make your mixes shine by adding effects and automation.

    Notate music with the Sibelius Score Editor
    Compose and print professional music scores using the Sibelius Score Editor, which offers a wide range of standard notation tools. Generate ideas quickly with realtime note placement and editing, and change the meter, key signature, and more on-the-fly. Add chord symbols and diagrams. Transcribe MIDI parts in real time. Even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.

    Work and collaborate on music from other audio apps
    Collaboration has never been easier. With Pro Tools, you can exchange sessions with any Pro Tools user or studio. But you can also edit, remix, or even revisit projects created in other audio software—such as Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, Sonar, Live, Reason, and other third-party apps—right in Pro Tools using built-in OMF/AAF/MXF interchange support, ReWire compatibility, or MP3 export.

    Create, Edit, and Mix Audio for Post
    Streamline the audio/video workflow
    Work faster and easier with video using professional tools—now included as standard. Easily import and export projects to and from Pro Tools through built-in OMF/AAF/MXF interchange support. Keep track of all project assets and create and share custom catalogs with the robust DigiBase Pro file management. You can seamlessly move and share projects between the editorial and mix stage, with full compatibility, using a single automation system.

    Create and cut sound to picture
    With Pro Tools, you can create, edit, and mix audio to picture, with sample-accurate precision, using the built-in Time Code Ruler and support for one or up to 64 video tracks. Clean up production sound, and create sound effects and elements that define (or defy) reality. Record voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect-frame accuracy. Easily execute and play back edits nondestructively using single-key edit commands.

    Mix stereo and surround
    Easily create larger-than-life mixes that move across the stereo field using advanced automation and variable stereo pan depths

    Integrate directly into the Avid video workflow
    Speed up workflow efficiency and eliminate the need for rendering effects, transcoding video, or copying Avid video files for audio post. With the Video Satellite option, you can instantly open and play Avid HD or SD video sequences in sync with your Pro Tools session (Pro Tools HD only). And because all video playback is offloaded onto a separate but synced computer, you maintain full Pro Tools audio track counts and processing power.

            I've been using the Digi001 since they first came out in 2000. I wanted a portable interface for my new laptop and to upgrade to the current version of Pro Tools (PT10). The MBox3 fits the bill perfectly.
