Cool Re: How to properly setup the original Mbox with the MOTU 828mkII for monitor control

I like it.

The only time that it's a PITA is if I want to record thru Digi plugins.

That doesn't work to good for guitars and vocals as the MBox has a pretty high latency.

But, for recording thru the plugins from MainStage or GTRSolo it works awesomely. I set the MOTU to a 64 buffer. Leave the MBox/Pro Tools set to a 1024 buffer and use the mix control on the MBox to create a blend of the tracks from Pro Tools and the inputs from the MOTU when recording.

Gnarly !!!
Pro Tools 10.3.9, MBP 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo OS 10.6.8 4GB/Ram, 7200RPM 750GB Internal HD, Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, Digidesign Mbox 2.

It is what it is...
