Phait Posted November 15, 2003 Share Posted November 15, 2003 Well since I'm most likely going to be selling my Logic 6 Audio Big Box since it is more than I need (MIDI) and less than I need (audio editing wise [plug-ins are one thing]), I'm left with getting the Digidesign Mbox with Pro Tools LE. Which also means: I no longer have to worry about how many USB ports on my Powerbook are free for an authorization dongle... I don't have to clutter my desk as it is with a USB hub... I get software with the interface. I've searched the forum re: Mbox, got many threads to go through yet, but I'm getting mostly negative results. Read the preamps aren't good - I have no idea what a preamp is. I know it has 2 ins, which is perfect for me, honestly. I don't need more. (Guitar/keyboard/mic [have not bought mic yet]) But then I also think to myself - do I really need an interface... I can record my guitar or a mic into the Fantom-S, export to Powerbook. I can resample all my work on the keyboard, export to Powerbook. In this way I could just resample each track, export individually to the laptop and load up in software and edit if need be. I would look at ProTools free for OS9 to get a feel for it and make sure it's what I want to be using, but my Powerbook can't get online yet... PC is on AOL, we haven't switched to DSL yet (we're going to share the connection) and my USB flashkey is 32MB while PT Free OS9 is 40 MB... oh and PT Free for Windows 98 just crashes upon startup.
