Go to system preferences (on a Mac) and make sure you have selected the MBox as both input and output device.

Why am i getting post distortion on my pro tools mbox 3


Perhaps check your settings. I had to change the number of porocessors to four (from single or one) and select minimize I/O latency to get the problem solved.

I am using pro tools 8 LE. I have a blue bluebird condenser microphone. the cable going into the mic is a male 3 pronged end. and the end going into my avid mbox mini is a normal ending (the ones that look...


The mbox mini is usb powered, wont work without power so your mac or pc must be powered on and connected. The blue led will be on when powered. Assuming you have the the appropriate cables, you want to make sure the condenser is plugged into the Mic/Line input. (Input 1 on the back of the mbox mini). All condenser mics require phantom power, so engage the +48V switch. Also make sure the DI (direct input) switch is not engaged. The input gain control is located on the front of the mbox... There needs to be speakers connected to the 1/4 output jacks on the back of the mbox or headphones on the front for sound output. Use the large knob for monitor volume control.
In protools: Create a Stereo Master fader track
Create a mono audio track
Set the input of the mono audio track to Mic/Line 1 Arm the track for record (click & make sure the R is red)
You should getting levels and sound output from your condenser.

Installed pro tools 8 on macbook pro. when i try to open pro tools it says the hardware cannot be found. mbox2 is connected but the usb light is not on.


I had this problem as well... If this is a 2011 macbook pro you have os 10.6.7 which is not supported by avid at this time. We actually need to down grade to 10.6.6. You installation cd with your macbook pro is 10.6.6, so you'll need to install that, then go to the avid website and download pro tool le 8.0.5. Everything should work fine just don't upgrade to 10.6.7 until it has been approved by avid. If you need detailed steps look at the avid forum for pro tools. Step to uninstalling and installing the os can be found on youtube.com... Do not have your mbox plugged in when you install pro tools. I hope this helps!!!

I hook it up and no sound kome threw


Are you giving it phantom power? This is condenser microphone that needs an external power source. Most audio mixers have a button or a switch that will send 48V of what is called "phantom power" back through the microphone cable to operate the microphone. If this is not the issue I would suggest contacting the manufacturer.

HELP!!Setting up my Mbox1 as general sound output in my mac!!


I've had the same problem. I got it to work using Soundflower and LineIn.
Soundflower:
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/audio/soundflower.html

LineIn:
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18987

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 )

Avid Xpress Pro - AVID crashes when deck is turned on


This sounds like a fatal error out side of avid settings, you're going to need to do an avid reinstall to replace any currupted files. Just back up your media capture and .bin / avb files. Does xpress let you create an omfi file just import that rather than relinking?

PROBLEM KEEPIN MBOX 2 CONNECTION TO MAC LAPTOP


I have the same problem. Usually it will work when I reboot the computer. The trick is once you get the mbox working with the phantom power on, is to not turn off the phantom power during your session; the duration in which you use the mbox at that given time before shutting it down. You can switch the phantom off and it won't shut off, but if you press it back on, it may and for me more than half of the time it does shut off. I have a new problem with my mbox. I can't hear play back, even though I can hear sound from either input. Any suggestions?
