i know that in the digi002 you are able to read mbox files. is it the same for the opposite., is i record w/plugins on the 002 rack will I then be able to upload in the Mbox and continue to edit or record?
As long as the plug-ins installed on both systems' computers are the same, things should open right up. Even if the same plug-ins saved with the session aren't present on both systems, the project should still open fine.
the only thing you have to do is make sure all of the outputs are set to analog 1&2 - Sometimes on the 002 I use all 8 outputs for a number of reasons. Other than that it is no problem. I use the MBOX at home and the 002 at my studio. Also the MBOX has longer buffer times but that because of the USB versus Firewire on the 002.
