My Avid Mbox Pro won’t show up in Pro Tools

If you’re trying to use an Mbox Pro with Pro Tools, but you’re only getting audio in from the built-in mic and audio out from the built-in speakers, then you’ll need to change the playback engine. To do this:

  1. Click the Setup menu within Pro Tools.                       Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 10.56.58 AM
  2. Select Playback Engine.                                                              Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 10.57.41 AM
  3. Within that window, there will be a drop down menu at the top. Open that and select your Mbox.    Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 10.58.28 AM

If you find that the Mbox is not showing up in the drop down menu, try downloading the latest drivers. You can do that here.
