I had the white noise static issue as well. The problem was the USB cord that connects the mbox to the cpu. I switched it out. Another issue could be the hardrive that you're allocating your files to. If you're using an external Hard drive Make sure that its formatted for Recording Transferring & Playback. When the noise appear, stop your session and toggle the playback engine between 1024 and 2048. It should stop the noise momentarily.

Well it all depends on what program you are using to record your music you will need to activate the noise reduction filter. or lower the volume on your mic but not on the program. Therefore your mic will not pick up any noise in the background and you will still have the same music quality.

Ihave a digidesign m box 1 and im using windows 7 and each time i launch protools le 8 and im recording or mixing a song it freese especially when im using a plugins and ask me to increse the hw buffer...


The easy way round this is to increase the amount of RAM in your machine. I would suggest at least 3 GB and use the fastest ram you can fit (check the spec of your machine for the memory type [DDR2 or DDR3], max speed and how much ram your board will take. If your Windows OS is 64 bit you can fit the max amount your machine can handle)

Running digi 001 on windows 7


i got digi 001 running on windows 7...
i left my xp on hard disk while installing win 7. it kept xp on folder windows.old folder. in control panel i saw digi as multimedia adapter wich system couldn't recognice. hit "change settings" -> driver -> update driver
used my old windows to search for driver. it found "Dalvin.sys" driver for adapter. installed that. after that windows recogniced digi 001.
downloaded "digidesign asio 6.11" driver installer for win-xp and ran it.
and bingo - it works!
in every step windows was complaining and asking do i want to do this. just yeah'd everything. as i just had a clean install of win 7 i just thought whatta heck i can install everything again if it would not work, but it did.

so in a nut shell:
1: install Dalvin.sys in control panel for digi 001
2: run digidesign asio 6.11 driver installer for win-xp

for me it worked but i absolutely take no responsibility if you mess your system with this! at least reaper got a sound out of it. i haven't tried to record anything yet. but asio settings seemed to work as they used to do in xp.

I cant hear windows


Your Windows System Sounds and sounds from other programs are output from the computers preinstalled soundcard. When you use a professional sound card i.e Mbox (ASIO) you can search google for an ASIO player or plugins for Real Player (or WinAmp or Windows Media Player etc) that allow you to use as the output device.

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?
