This unit was very easy to setup and start using. The instruction manual is well written and easy to follow. Each step is laid out for you, to include optimizing your host computer system for the best audio performance. This is great for someone who knows little about audio recording devices and is on their own to figure it out.
Working with the hardware was a breeze. The control panel is laid out in a logical, user friendly way. The beginner will find this feature of particular benefit. This is also great for the professional working on the clock who won’t have to waist valuable time searching the manual trying to learn the unit.
With the sturdy construction, compact size, and handle, this unit is ready to travel from the studio, to the practice space, to the live show. If you need to take your tracks from your bedroom studio to the pro studio, no problem, the Pro Tools Software is the industry standard. This is great for the beginner who creates tracks at home and then goes to a professional studio to mix on a Pro Tools HD rig, the LE tracks will transfer easily into that HD system.
With the essential I/O on board, the beginner has all they need to make professional sounding recordings and mixes. The mic pre’s are of the highest quality, and for the guitar or bass player there are two direct inputs. Even the pro who needs a mobile solution for those quick “on the spot recordings” will find the features on the Mbox 2 professional.
Whether it’s the home studio or the professional studio, the Mbox 2 has the quality and features to find its place in each. I would recommend this product to anyone of any level as a mobile recording solution.
