Overview
  • 1Description

The Mbox 2 Pro Factory from Digidesign is a FireWire based, portable audio/MIDI production system capable of recording audio at 24-bit resolution with up to 96kHz sample rates. The system comes packaged with Digidesign's Pro Tools LE software, fifty effects and instrument plug-ins and the Pro Tools Ignition Pack that covers the entire spectrum of audio production.

The interface features four analog and two digital input-channels that include two microphone preamps with switchable 48V phantom power. Six analog and two digital output-channels include dedicated studio monitor outputs with volume control. Although the system is highly portable, Wordclock I/O on BNC connectors allows the interface to function in a professional studio environment.

The Mbox 2 Pro Factory adds five powerful plug-ins that include the Moogerfooger Analog Delay, JOEMEEK SC2T Compressor, JOEMEEK VC5T Meequalizer, Cosmonaut Voice and Digidesign Maxim.

Systems purchased on or after October 3rd 2008, and all current purchasers are eligible to receive a free upgrade to Pro Tools LE 8 when it becomes available.
