Built-in reverb helps you deliver more inspiring vocal and instrumental performances”without taxing your computer processor. The integrated guitar tuner enables you to tune your guitar, bass, and other instruments directly from the interface.

Cosmonaut Voice
For vocal processing that's really out there, Cosmonaut Voice is the perfect plug-in. Through the funky-looking interface, you can dial up a telephone voice, interplanetary effects, distortion, squelch, and even an authentic tone culled from recently declassified Russian space footage.

Moogerfooger Analog Delay
An analog delay in the digital domain? It makes sense when you realize that the Moogerfooger Analog Delay plug-in was meticulously modeled after Bob Moog's limited edition, real-world Moogerfooger Analog Delay Pedal. Add rich depth, unbelievable warmth, and inimitable sound quality to your mixes”you really have to hear this one.

JOEMEEK SC2 Photo Optical Compressor

Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter
Bring that classic '60s and '70s sound to your bass and electric guitar tracks. Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter allows you to easily dial-up fat analog sounds for any instrument using the 2-pole or 4-pole variable resonance filter, cutoff filter, and envelope controls.

JOEMEEK VC5 Meequalizer
To get the sounds he heard in his head onto tape, Joe Meek built a range of custom gear, including a treble and bass circuit with a sweepable mid control. The JOEMEEK VC5 Meequalizer re-creates the equalizer circuit Meek used, offering simple controls and delivering incredibly warm, musical results.

Moogerfooger Ring Modulator
Create a wide range of sound-processing effects, overtones, and radical sonic textures with this plug-in version of Moog's popular Ring Modulator pedal. The Moogerfooger Ring Modulator enables you to do anything from subtly sweetening a sound to changing its character completely through the plug-ins oscillator and dual waveform LFO.

Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser
Combining a switchable 6- or 12-stage phaser with a wide-ranging variable LFO, the Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser provides a fast and easy way to explore and create sounds. Start with subtle tremolo or radical modulation effects, then crank the distortion and resonant filters to generate some truly unbelievable sounds”all with that signature classic Moog flavor.

By Larry Shelby

from Fort Wayne, IN

This is a great package deal. It comes with the MBox 3, a condenser mic, and headphones, and Ilok, and with Producer Factory! The Mbox is made of rugged metal and has a nice grey tone with black face and knobs that are well made. The sound quality is better then the MBox 2, wtih new preamps that have a 20db pad. It has onboard DSP, which is only 5 reverbs, a delay, and an echo, for a total of 7...not great but ok... It has new soft peak limiters which are nice, and a "Multi" button on the front for software functions, as well as S/PDIF in and out, MIDI in and out, and USB 2.0. The headphones and mic are not great, but adequate. When you consider that just the MBox is $549 - this is a GREAT deal. You get $250 worth of extras for $50..well worth it. Rating would have been 5 stars if they gave owners a special upgrade price to Protools 9...but you'll pay the same as anyone else...$'s all about the Benjamins...

This is a great package deal. It comes with the MBox and Protools 8.04 which is $549 ...and THEN it gives you a Condenser Mic & Headphones AND the Producer Factory bundle of plug ins and an Ilok.....which is about $250 worth of extras for $50 bucks!! While the mic and headphones are nothing to rave about...they're adequate...First impression is that the Mbox is very sturdy. It has a metal chassis and looks very nice. Sound quality is superior to the Mbox 2. 20 db pad on pre's is nice. The onboard DSP is very has 6 Reverbs...that's all...and they're nothing to rave about not a great thing...but it will help in the CPU usage department. Multi button is nice for repetitive DAW functions. They've also added soft peak limiters, which is nice. My biggest complaint would be that those of us who purchased this new hardware should have been able to upgrade to Protools 9 for less then those who own the Mbox 2. That would have made this a 5 star review.
