Record, edit, and mix performances”with high audio resolutions”using the professional-grade Mbox Pro desktop audio interface. Easily connect mics, instruments, outboard effects, monitors, and other analog, digital, and/or MIDI gear with your computer to capture and create studio-quality productions.

Just pair Mbox Pro with your favorite audio recording or music creation software such as the included Pro Tools 9, Logic, Live, Fruity Loops, Cubase, and more. No matter what you choose, you™ll always sound amazing, as Mbox Pro was designed by the same team who created Avid's top-of-the-line Pro Tools HD Series interfaces, giving you the sonic clarity of interfaces costing much more.

Avid's top-of-the line, the Mbox Pro (3rd Gen) is a 24-bit/192kHz, 8x8 FireWire interface offering exceptional sound quality. It has 4 XLR mic inputs with 48V phantom power, 4 - 1/4" TRS line inputs, 6 balanced outputs and 2 unbalanced Alt line outputs, 2 - 1/4" headphone outs, onboard DSP, and an assignable Pro Tools multifunction button. Among numerous professional features, the Mbox Pro's line inputs bypass the preamps, ensuring a clean signal path so you can use your favorite high-end preamps.

All the ins and outs you need”and more
Because you can work with up to eight inputs and eight outputs simultaneously, Mbox Pro is ideal for recording yourself and a small band or ensemble. Connect mics, instruments, line-level equipment, MIDI gear, and digital devices to the wide array of analog and digital I/O. You can also add your favorite outboard signal processors to your mixes using the four insert jacks, attach a footswitch to control punch ins/outs, and maintain perfect sync with other digital devices through Word Clock I/O.

Work the way you want
Get the flexibility to work in more ways than ever. Use Mbox Mini with the included Pro Tools 9 for maximum speed and ease, 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 Pro 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. You can set up more pleasing cue mixes with reverb using the onboard DSP too.
