Default Re: :confused: Pro Tools HD playback thru Mbox/Mbox Micro?

Also along those same lines... is it possible to connect an original Mbox for the same reasons? More specifically this time though, I am most interested in playing back through good speakers via the stereo outputs on the rear if I'm forced to work away from my studio.

Anyone out there that can point me in a good direction here?

As mentioned HD and LE interfaces require separate software. However the sessions created between the 2 are interchangeable. So you can easily work on a session created in HD on an mbox. But as stated the original Mbox has reached it's end of life, so an Mbox 2 would be a better starting point. And would include the PTLE software to use with it.
