Whether you work solo or collaborate with others, you'll sound better than ever with the newly rearchitected Mbox audio and MIDI computer recording interface. Get best-in-class sound quality and performance with professional-grade circuitry and premium audio conversion.
Capture and mix studio- quality sessions, with up to 24-bit/96 kHz audio resolution. And create anywhere inspiration takes you, thanks to its robust, ultra-compact, USB- powered housing.
Use Mbox with the included Pro Tools Express software (you can upgrade to the full Pro Tools at any time at great savings) for maximum creativity and performance, or get great performance when you use Mbox with any Core Audio- or ASIO-compatible software, such as Logic, Live, Record, Reason, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar, and more.
Mbox comes packed with advanced features, making it even easier to get great results. 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.
