Digidesign introduces Mbox 2

Digidesign today introduced the Mbox 2, a next-generation USB-powered audio/MIDI production system that builds on the performance and simplicity of the original Mbox?Digidesigns most popular personal studio product ever. The original Mbox offered superb sound, a compact hardware design, and easy operation that changed the way songwriters, DJs, studio mixers, and post production engineers created and produced music.

Along with its flexible hardware interface, Mbox 2 includes the easy-to-use, award-winning Digidesign Pro Tools LE software, which offers many of the same features that top studios rely on to record, edit, mix, and master commercial albums and produce sound for blockbuster films. In addition, Mbox 2 comes with the Pro Tools Ignition Pack?an impressive collection of powerful plug-ins, creative applications, and additional tools to help professionally produce and promote music.
