The Digidesign Mbox 2 is a great little interface that goes via usb to your computer. It comes with a handle on it for portability when taking it from place to place. Mine came with Pro tools 7 at the time which I absolutely hated with a passion at the time. I am ok with pro tools now, it was just a little to complex for me then.


Well I had no installation problems, but the issue was using it in my daw at the time which was cubase I think. I didn’t want to use Pro tools I wanted to use a daw that I was comfortable with. Digidesign told me it would be a breeze to set it up in cubase but it was far from easy. It took me forever to figure it out and it was still buggy and gave me all sorts of problems during recording.


Getting started was very difficult for me, not too sure if it was just me or what. It was so hard to set this thing up and get it configured. Digidesign failed on this one for me. I have used plenty of there products before but nothing gave me troubles like this one did. Plus I experienced a lot of latency and some very strange feedback and echo noises when using it in cubase and a horrible hum noise that was really loud even after everything was grounded.


Overall, it works pretty good in Pro Tools but that’s if you understand pro tools. Don purchase this if you plan on using on a different daw that doesn’t come with it. You will have major issues plus I think you have to pay for updates which is ridiculous. So if you are a pro tools user you will love this, but if not run away from it and get something better!
