Question about Digidesign Mbox External Sound System
I have an old mbox 1 and i conected to my mac intel with os x 10.5.6 running. i use the mbox with protools and there's no problem, i use it with logic and works fine, with reason too. The problem is when i want to set the mbox as my general sound output, in the "sound menu" in the general system preferences, it appears in the list, but when i select it, it says that the device has no output controls, and i try to play some music on itunes and the track doesn't even start. the same thing happens when i try to watch a video on youtube, or quicktime, or whatever. What can i do? does anyone can help me?
Thanks in advance!
I've had the same problem. I got it to work using Soundflower and LineIn.
After installing soundflower, it should show up like a virtual soundcard in your sound prefs. Send your audio output to the soundflower 'card' in sound prefs. Then use LineIn to route the outpout from soundflower to the Mbox like this:
Input from: Soundflower (2ch)
Output to: Digidesign HW ( Mbox )

Double-check to make sure that you have "Digi CoreAudio Manager" installed.
NOTE: As an external audio device the controls for the MBox will not appear in the System Preferences Sound Panel.
Once you have opened iTunes or You browser make sure the MBox is "connected" using "Digi CoreAudio Manager."
