Beginner's Dream

By L.A. Donatoni

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Digidesign Pro Tools Mbox 2 Factory Package:

It is what it is......... I've owned a Protools TDM system since the early/ mid 90's and just came down to Sioux Falls to record and setup an old friend's new home studio. He purchaced this package. I'll tell you.... It is what it is... This is a FANTASTIC package for someone sick and tired of paying for studio time and well, time in it's self. The only negatives that I have are computer based. I spent 2 whole days working the bugs out. Do NOT use a laptop for this and READ the minimum sys requirements. Unless you are a systems engineer (which I AM) Vista (Home Premium) will give you nothing but problems and Digi does not support it. But with that out of the way. I think you'd be hard pressed to build a package as good as this for almost twice the money (adding in the reasearch, analysis, and once again....... Time). This is truely a beginners dream. All the work has been done for you and the plugin bundle rocks. Buy this.... BUY THIS NOW!!!

Good deal if you solely use Pro Tools

By Tony

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Digidesign Pro Tools Mbox 2 Factory Package:

I'd never used Pro Tools before but heard it was the best software for music production software anyone could have. After using it, I don't really think so. If you can, try Pro Tools BEFORE you buy it! Also, the Mbox is only great if your using it with Pro Tools. When I purchased this, I was at the point where I was deciding what music software I'd put all my efforts into learning. In the end I choose Ableton. I thought the Mbox would serve well as a audio interface of what ever software I choose. Nope!! The latency I get in Ableton, Reason, and FL Studio is unbelievably bad. If I had know with previously I would not have bought it. I'm just happy I bought a Macbook Pro and can run any music software with Apple's Core Audio.

Very Nice !

By Albert Bellard

from Lafayette , La

Comments about Digidesign Pro Tools Mbox 2 Factory Package:

This is a great setup for the money. All you need to build your studio. All software and hardware now compatible with window7 x32bit and window 7 x64 bit,just remember to update the pro tools software to version 8.04 which is free on the digidesign website. The update is necessary and has all the new drivers for whatever OS you're using no need to get on the Mac vers. PC ban wagon. The monitors are OK but I just went on and upgraded to 8s for true mixing. The mike is great also.
