Re: Logic 9 on Mbox 2 screwed up guitar effects on all programs

I guess one question I'm asking which may not be totally clear from the above (novel) is:

Does there exist a standalone Mbox2 Core Audio driver for Mac which is equivalent to the one contained in...

Logic 9 on Mbox 2 screwed up guitar effects on all programs

Mbox 2 firmware corruption

Hi,

From reading these boards, it seems like I have a very common problem: my Mbox2 has corrupted firmware (I think) resulting from using it on a combination of Mac and Windows machines. I've...

Re: "hanging" applications when mbox 2 plugged in

Just want to add my voice to the Disappointed Customer list regarding this issue. I get it all the time and I'm sick of having to hold down the power button.

Basically, Digidesign, it's up to you...

Re: Two instances of same RTAS plugin

Holding shift? At what point? I certainly didn't do that, so maybe it's my fault (rather than Guitar Rig's), but if you can give me a bit of detail maybe I can try it out. Thanks for your reply.

Re: Installing MBox2 drivers on XP

Even on the digidesign site I can't find out how you can just install the drivers for the hardware, without installing some version of Protools...does anyone even know if this is possible?

Hi,

While I do most of my Protools work in Mac OSX on my iMac, I have a couple of reasons for wanting to install the MBox2 hardware in Windows XP.

Re: How to get good bass sound

Ok, thanks. I haven't used the VST to RTAS adapter - do you have any details of where I can get it? And is it free?

Also, the MaxBass VST plugin - how much does it cost?

Anyone else got any...
