This little guy is great. Works seemlessly with a mac. Pro tools is awesome with a ton of options. Pro-tools definitely has a learning curve but it comes with great resources. The dvd tutorial is awesome to get you started. The instruction manual is over 1000 pages but is very resourceful. If you don't mind investing time to learn protools this is an excellent way to get in. The good thing is a lot of industry pros use protools so it will be worth learning.
I bought this from my local guitar center the other day. Installation on my Windows 7 Laptop was a breeze. I followed the enclosed instructions on how to set this device up and I had no issues. I then popped in the instructional DVD that comes with it and they give you a quick crash course in creating audio tracks, click tracks, and a lot of other little things that will get you started making music very quick. I immediately started recording a bunch of acoustic guitar tracks, imported a drum track that I created in FLStudio 9 and then recorded Bass tracks and Vocals. This device and program are so easy to use and it looks like there are a billion other things to learn in the software if you want to dig deeper. All in all if you can follow simple directions you can begin recording in your home today with no frustration. I would recommend this product to my friends and in fact already recommended it to 2 other of my musician friends who have been looking for an easy to use all in one interface for simple home recording.
To keep it short and simple the Mbox clips alot!!! and is very high quality when recording synthesizer with silver 1/4 cables
I've been dying to try pro tools for quite sometime, but i've been using sonar as my daw for the last 4 years. I recently replaced my presonus audiobox with the mbox mini and right away there are quite a few differences between the two. The mbox has a louder output to my monitors (bx5a's) and records at a louder level with way less noise than the audiobox. For it to be 24/48k the sound quality is much better than I expected it to be. The speaker/mute button in the front is a great feature because you dont have to turn the monitors down or mess with the mix knob when you record/monitor in the same room. Another plus are 2 DI on the back of the interface and one doubles as a line input for connecting outboard gear like your preamp or effects processor. The mbox mini is a great way to become a pro tools user plus it has more features than most of the 24/48k interfaces have. Oh yeah, and as an end note, I use windows vista sp2 and have had no problems with installation or use of the mbox and pro tools.
First off I would like to say don't use Mbox Mni 3 for PC, go get a Mac if you don't have one already. It gives you issues trying to recording. Other than that go get it. It's good for any home studio, gives good quality.
