OVERVIEW

Precision sound in a very small package.

It features Class A Focusrite mic preamps similar to the acclaimed Green Range units. The Mbox couples these with other highest-quality components to provide a 24-bit input-to-output signal path, guaranteeing the fidelity of your sound. Includes 2 analog inputs and outputs, 24-bit stereo S/PDIF I/O, 2 analog TRS inserts, headphone output with dedicated volume, zero-latency monitoring, 100% USB-powered.

Included With All Pro Tools LE Systems

When you buy a Pro Tools LE interface you get an incredible Music Production Enhancement Suite that includes Reason Adapted, Ableton Live Digidesign Edition, IK Multimedia SampleTank SE, IK Multimedia AmpliTube LE, and IK Multimedia T-RackS EQ.

Reason Adapted

An easy-to-use studio package providing a
virtual rack of innovative synthesizers, samplers, and effects along with a mixer and MIDI support. All sound from Reason Adapted can be streamed directly into the Pro Tools mixer via ReWire for additional processing.

Ableton Live Digidesign Edition

A flexible, incredibly intuitive sample sequencer application that enables you to both create, modify, and playback loops, phrases, and songs via Ableton's "elastic audio" technology. Multiple
samples can be automatically played back simultaneously at a user-defined tempo, and, as with Reason, all audio readily finds its way into Pro Tools via ReWire.

IK Multimedia AmpliTube LE

A guitar processing plug-in, AmpliTube LE gives
you easy access to several amplifier and cabinet
models as well as classic stompbox and other
effects. Use them on guitars and/or experiment with other track treatments.

IK Multimedia T-RackS EQ

The EQ module from IK Multimedia's acclaimed T-RackS analog mastering suite, T-RackS EQ, offers Pro Tools users a powerful, tube-modeled parametric EQ to use during mixing and mastering.

IK Multimedia SampleTank SE

A powerful sample playback module providing quick access to a host of included samples and the ability to easily move between them. Acting as a plug-in within the Pro Tools mixer, SampleTank SE enables you to start creating in Pro Tools immediately.

NOTE: Registered users of IK products are entitled to an upgrade to the IK Studio Bundle”an awesome suite of music production tools.

I just received this after years of using CEP then Audition and Soundforge. I have to say that after just producing 3 ads for clients, this little box carries a BANG! this is for you only if your serious about your audio quality. The pro Tools LE software is awesome BUT it has a steep learning curve. if you take your time, read everything before installing and configuration, you will NOT be sorry. I use this on my HP laptop along with the M-Audio Studio pro 4 monitors. The quality is just as good as a huge set-up, if not better. I am very happy with this purchase. AGAIN. Be patient with installation and the learning curve. You will be happier in the long run.

I bought the Mbox with Protools LE about three weeks ago and have had no success with recording or correcting my protools software problems. I have not been able to record for more than 2 minutes without an error message. This happens every time I attempt to record. I didn't have these problems with Cooledit or with Adobe Audition. I have posted these problems to discussion forums, Digidesigns forum, and waited on hold to try to get help from digidesign. I am still experiencing the same problems. I have noticed that there are quite a lot of people experiencing the same problems with no solutions. I would recommend that you check the home recording forums as well as Digidesigns forums and see for yourself before makeing a purchase.Personaly, I wish I had saved a few bucks and gone with a different interface and used Cubase as my software.The very short demos that I have been able to record have superb sound quality. Now it appears my choice is to change software and hardware or just go with very very short demo songs.Good luck!

Buyer Beware!!

By eldopapopa

from Paonia, CO

I was led to believe by the item info that the software offered with this product was viable, "real" software - NOT demo versions. None of the software offered with this product aside from Pro Tools is, in fact a full version. Additionally, when working with Pro Tools, I found out that Pro Tools cannot read mp3 files for importation. How pathetic is that? I could not even transfer a previous file for work in Pro Tools. I highly recommend considering other options before buying this one.

Great for beginner ProTools users

By T.C. Flame

The M-Box is a great way to start out with ProTools. I was really surprised when I heard the sound quality that was coming out of the little box. It is amazing.

Its Great ... When it Works : (

By Quid

from Connecticut

I just ordered this system.. and I have to say that I am greatly dissapointed. I guess my search for a reliable USB recording interface continues. You can not record for more than a couple of minutes (nor playback) without getting buffer errors. When you make changes to your buffer in playback settings.. no improvement. And.. asking me to turn off my Windows XP Hyper-Threading technology to make a product work is a backwards approach. The two or so minutes I was able to record actually sounded pretty good.. but; for the $$$ it needs to do a whole lot better.Don't waste your time or money on this product. Look for something else that has better reviews.

This is off the hook!!

By Art1bk

from Brooklyn

I have to say. This is nice. Very easy to install and fast. The quality on this is amazing. I started doing demos already. I just wish it would have had more inputs but It is easy to install and understand and yeah by the way it's Protools.

HT's Productions

By HT Whitehacker

from Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans

This is great for a one to two man show. Simple software and great effects for your money. It's a must for the quick show man. One man setup = 5 min. setup and 5 to 7 shutdown. On the run, the beach, street show, convention show, you name it its there. This is the way to go in style.

Review

By Lance-EgwVS

from Clovis, CA

Overall I really like the system. It may not be the best for full band set ups because of the limited inputs, but I've done little demos by rigging a mixer before entering the box. Pro Tools is great, first using may want to do a little reading up on the whole thing but overall it's a good product.

Great product/w decent software package

By josht_101

from New Mexico, USA

The mbox is great, the BNR feature in protools is awesome, but it's only a 2 week trial, without that particular feature, pro tools doesn't stand out as well. BNR is without a doubt the best noise reduction feature on any program I've ever used. It's a shame that after spending $$$ you still have to spend more to buy that.
