Purpose of new MBox Control Panel?
 
I don't get it. I can open a ProTools session and record without launching the MBox Control Panel. Now, I know that if I use it I can add the neat DSP effects like reverb and widen but those effects do not get transferred to my ProTools session. So I guess what I am asking is, "What good it it?"

Oh - I have learned that I can drag that Icon (MBox) onto my Dock thus saving the need to open System Preferences and then select it. It does save one step.

Low latency monitoring when tracking, and sweetening the monitor mix for the performer. Do they really not explain any of this stuff in the Mbox doc?

No. Thanks for the input...so I am correct about the fact that the reverb applied in the Control Panel cannot be added to the track itself in the session - that I still have to put a reverb plug-in on the track and guesstimate the approximate effect setting? I like the sound of the Reverb control panel - it is quick and easy. I thought it would be transferred to the track itself.
