Pro Tools LE in the Palm of Your Hand!
The Digidesign Mbox 2 Micro answers the demands of Pro Tools users worldwide by offering a way to edit and mix with Pro Tools LE anywhere you go! That's right, this USB device that's about the same size as a common jump drive allows you to take your Pro Tools Sessions on the road — record on your HD or LE rig and use the Mbox 2 Micro to mix on a laptop while riding in a plane, in the park... anywhere you want. The Mbox 2 Micro is portable Pro Tools power!
Mbox 2 Micro sports a slick yet rugged anodized aluminum casing that's small enough to fit in any pocket, making it the ultimate mobile Pro Tools editing and mixing solution. About the size of a typical USB flash drive, Mbox 2 Micro offers high-quality sound, a 1/8-inch stereo output for headphone or speaker monitoring (no audio inputs), and a convenient volume wheel for quick adjustments. While it doesn't offer any audio inputs, Mbox 2 Micro does come with award-winning Pro Tools LE software, Bomb Factory and DigiRack plug-ins, and Digidesign's Xpand! sample-playback/synthesis workstation, enabling you to work with Pro Tools sessions and compose wherever inspiration takes you.
Forget about being cooped up in a recording studio or post-production suite; Mbox 2 Micro gives you the freedom to leave your Pro Tools interfaces behind and take your sessions anywhere you and your laptop computer can travel — whether it's for business or for pleasure. With its robust, anodized aluminum design and super-compact, you can simply tuck Mbox 2 Micro into any pocket and get ready to welcome the world as your new control room or editing suite.
It's also definitely worth mentioning that the Mbox 2 Micro comes with a full copy of Pro Tools LE 8 software — the same software used in countless professional recording studios and post houses across the world. The tracks that you create in Pro Tools LE 8 can be instantly opened and used in those same pro studios — take your sessions to a Pro Tools|HD-equipped studio and have them mixed by a pro, or enjoy having your entire body of work be fully compatible and usable whenever it's time to make the move into a larger system — with Pro Tools LE 8, you become a part of the largest community of digital audio workstation users in the world.
This version of the industry standard gives you unprecedented Pro Tools LE power, offering an impressive 48 simultaneous mono or stereo audio tracks — expandable up to 128 tracks with full 7.1 surround sound mixing! You'll also enjoy robust MIDI sequencing and editing abilities, built-in music notation tools with the Score Editor, Elastic Time and Elastic Pitch control, easy track-comping tools, convenient automation and controller lanes, and a time-saving update-checking feature for Pro Tools and all of your plug-ins. Plus, Pro Tools LE 8 includes a comprehensive collection of professional sound-processing plug-ins and 20 new effects — on top of a host of incredible virtual instruments. There are a Mini Grand piano, the Boom drum machine, the DB-33 tonewheel organ, and Vacuum and Xpand!2 synths, and more — as well as more than 9GB of high-quality loops and a ton of plug-ins and tools to fix, enhance, and polish your mixes.
