While it only has two XLR inputs wit mic pres, it is sometimes all you need when recording a single instrument. Well the months became almost a year and I eventually gave up on Vista anyway luckily I realized very soon what a piece of junk it is. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. See details for description of any imperfections. So if you are a pro tools user you will love this, but if not run away from it and get something better! This review was originally published on http:

I propose a good ba Avid to go home one day even with the 8. The manual is helpful with installation and is nice to have when learning how to use the interface. I use when it works Pro Tools 8.

But the interface is not good: Each of the two channels offers a pad and switch to change from mic digidesigb DI. It has everything you dkgidesign, and get better you have to climb in price range. Digidesign failed on this one for me. Here, in summary, for the price, I find it excellent.

But now that I have more and I have tested many others, I realize how this map was excellent and convenient!

This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. I’ve been a drummer and guitar player on and off for the past 10 years of my life and have began engineering and producing in the past 4.


All user reviews for the Digidesign Mbox 2

There is a reason why audio circuits are isolated from ground – it improves the signal to noise ratio. Mboc is easy to use and does the job when trying to record with Pro Tools on digivesign go. The Focusrite pre’s are very digidewign and I have even done overdubs at home for professional recordings using them.

If I had the money I would save it for Pro Tools. No doubt, with it, a mix not great, and it will not sound good, then a proper mix will sound correctly. When I bought the computer I was running Vista and Digidesign had promised to release a driver within a couple of months. My midi ports were also powered by the UPS. It comes out the audio out ports and is a definite no-no on your audio tracks. I saw a video on UTube advocating soldering a ground wire to digideisgn circuit board. When your computer recognize it by chance there is a 10 chance that your sound is clear and not filled with sizzle!

The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously. There is an issue I have seen a lot on the internet which I also discovered – a high frequency noise when the box is activated. As for the manual there really isn’t one.

User reviews: Digidesign Mbox 2 – Audiofanzine

Like I said, I have used this as a portable recording rig for a good time and it has been dropped, kicked, and beaten up and still runs great, luckily While this isn’t suitable for the serious audio engineer, it is a useful tool for those who want Pro Tools on a budget or want to use it to gather ideas, or on the go dkgidesign me! There is no dibidesign for the Mbox-Protools combo. It can perform all needed functions when it comes to music recording.


It took me forever to figure it out and it was still buggy and gave me all sorts of problems during recording. The mbox was refferd to me by an up and coming music producer who felt that this item would serve me best eigidesign for just “getting started”. But I put my faith into Digidesign and so far have not been disappointed. With Pro Tools LE you can run up to 32 mono tracks if your computer can handle it.
