With Pro Tools + Mbox Pro, you get everything you need to create music and audio on your Mac or PC—all in one affordable bundle that offers incredible value. And you’ll always sound amazing, because the same team who created Avid’s top-of-the-line Pro Tools HD Series interfaces designed Mbox Pro, giving 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 Pro, featuring professional-grade converters, advanced recording technology, and a premium analog signal path. Because Mbox Pro tightly integrates with Pro Tools, you have a system that’s fast enough to keep up with your creativity. And with Avid's stringent testing standards, you’re assured of rock-solid performance in even the most demanding environments.

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 Pro Tools with Mbox Pro for maximum speed and creativity—and get total session compatibility with Pro Tools studios worldwide. Or unleash your studio and use Pro Tools standalone for complete on-the-go creation. What’s more, you can even use Mbox Pro with other Core Audio- and ASIO-compatible software such as Logic, Live, Record, Reason, 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. Instantly perform Pro Tools commands right from the interface—like tap session tempo, start/stop record, and create a new track—with the customizable multi-function button. 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 our Pro Tools HD Series interfaces. And set up more pleasing cue mixes with reverb using the onboard DSP.

Double your tracks and more with an option
Boost your power to tackle even larger, more complex music and post-production projects, mix in surround sound*, and work more easily with video with the Complete Production Toolkit 2, a software expansion option for Pro Tools 9. If you work in a Pro Tools|HD-equipped studio, this option gives you the ability to work on your HD projects at home or on the go—without losing session information. (Complete Production Toolkit sold separately)

What a waste.

By Daryl

from Steger Il

I was really excited about this. An awesome interface with an awesome DAW all in one box. Too bad I never got the chance to use it because my pretty awesome laptop doesn't support Firewire. I really think Avid should consider making this interface compatible with USB 3.0. I was thinking of going with the Mbox 3 but it is packaged with a rinky dink version of pro tools. Feel like I can't win on this one.

By justin stegner

from San Jose Ca

it started off all nice and great, then I would get a high pitch static noise in my mons, Sent it back in to Avid and got it back, still same problem, fixed it by just turning my mons down till it was not AS noticeable. Now the Power Shut off completely, and won't work, go with something else, Avids new hardware has been nothing but a nightmare for me personally.
