Question about Digidesign Mbox External Sound System
Hi. I'm running osx with protools LE 7.0 and an mbox 1.
I've never had a problem with the mbox until today. I plug it in, it lights up, protools recognizes it and I can see that the audio is playing. But there is no sound coming out of the mbox, not even through the headphones.
Getting back out of protools and opening itunes, the digi logo hops up and down as it always does to show me it's connected to the mbox. But still no sound. When I go to the input/output page under 'sound' on the control panel, it tells me that the mbox is connected but 'selected device has no input/output controls. I checked the I/O menu in protools and and looks normal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:
1. shut down computer
2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.
i hope this helps everyone else
