September 12, 2006
DIGIDESIGN INTROS PORTABLE, HIGH DEFINITION PRO TOOLS LE SYSTEM "Mbox 2 Pro is a versatile and portable Pro Tools interface," explains Digidesign product manager Matt May. "It'll accept just about any type of audio gear you throw at it - a couple of microphones, keyboards or other line-level devices, S/PDIF digital source, turntable, MIDI, even Word Clock - and let you capture all of it into a high-quality Pro Tools LE session that's compatible with professional Pro Tools|HD systems."  And because of its portability, May says Mbox 2 Pro can be used to capture high-resolution audio anywhere, be at a studio, at home or on location.

Mbox 2 Pro ($799) supports up to six simultaneous inputs and eight outputs. It also includes Pro Tools LE software and over 50 effects and instrument plug-ins, including DigiRack plug-ins, Bomb Factory plug-ins, the Xpand! sample-playback/synthesis workstation, and the Pro Tools Ignition Pack.

For an extra $100, customers can purchase Mbox 2 Pro Factory, which includes an additional five Digidesign and Bomb Factory plug-ins (worth over $1,000), the Mbox 2 Pro system, and an iLok USB Smart Key.

Important to note: Mbox 2 Pro does not support external sync at 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz sample rates.
