    The red light used to indicate a signal, but now there is no red light signal. Seems like Mbox is prone to problems with a lot of people.

When i plug in my mbox 2 a message pops up saying audio device is drwaing to much power.. what the hell does that mean

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?

Transfer emails from apple mail to thunderbird (mac)


Apple's mbox files are non standard mbox files. Thunderbird cannot import these. Only Apple Mail can read these .mbox files.
The easiest way is to have Thunderbird simply import from Apple Mail. It's unclear what happened when you selected the import directly from Apple Mail.
Or you can go for application use. There are a lot of third party tools which deal in mail migration issues. One such application having expertise in migrating emails from apple mail to thunderbird is Mail Exporter Pro

Digidesign Mbox USB Driver Update v.1.0.1

" What Fixed with Digidesign USB Driver v1.0.1 "

The USB Driver Update fixes a problem that could result in corrupted audio

replace their "Digidesign USB Driver" version 1.0 (located in the System Folder
/Extensions Folder) with this version 1.0.1 driver.

Who Should Use this Update?

All Mbox Users with either Pro Tools LE (Mac) v.5.2 that shipped with Mbox, or
the 5.2.1 web update for Mbox users from DigiProNet

To Download Digidesign USB Driver v1.0.1:

Go to the Support/Downloads/Mbox section of the Digidesign website: digidesign.com

You need to make sure that your Protools 8 is routing the tracks to the headphone. Check that by seeing whether the M-Box is set up as your output system as well as input. Having MIDI thru has helped me with that problem before even though it has little to do with it.

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.

MBox 1 Compatibility with new Macbook Pro Unibody and OSX 10.5.6?


unfortunately any pro tools application below version 7.4.2 is not compatible with leopard and I don't think you can use mbox 1 with the universal mac I may be wrong but I wanna say I tried a while back and even garageband wouldn't find it anymore but you can check for sure by going to the applications folder then open the utilities folder in there is an application called "Audio Midi Setup" and you can select the mbox in there if you see it but if not there is no patch or driver that I know of to get it working unless you upgrade pro tools which if you do upgrade I suggest getting mbox 2 and getting LE with it

Macbook pro does not detect digi 002 rack


yeah i have an intel imac and had the same problem. I upgraded to pt le 7.4 and now pro tools recognizes the 002 rack and it works fine, but still the core audio manager does not recognize the hardware. It says in "use" when I first turn on the 002 rack, then it says not connected after about 20 seconds. I don't think this really matters though because I have beeen able to do everything fine without having the core audio managr recognizing the 002 rack. I hope that helps
