Strong points: compatibility with studios all over, editing, Weak Points: Only 32 tracks, which should be plenty for most, but is a small amount compared to other DAWS. No off-line mixdown (bounce)...gotta do it in real-time. Many effects require stopping playback before plug-ins can be added.

Price paid



USB audio interfaces just don't handle as much as firewire/PCI interfaces. I can use many more plug-ins in other DAWS.


It seems very sturdy, like it would handle the portable situations that it seems intended for. Many engineers use these away from thier TDM set-ups.


Sound Quality: Good for a $400.00 unit, espeically with this many features (2 preamps w/fantom power, software w/effects, editing, etc.). If you are skilled at mixing, the MBox sound will not get in your way.

I like it quite a bit, but quite frankly, this is "settling" until an upgrade to Digi 002 or TDM.
