Default Re: Mbox dongle

I find it a little disturbing that everyone asked for a portable solution (like mbox), digidesign delivers this solution.. (at a great price to boot) and people are still complaining that its too big.. and a "pain to lug around" Are you smoking crack? Think of doing 24/96k audio recording editing and mixing.. and now think of the hardware and the $$$ you used to need to do it before Mbox.. Trust me its not a pain in the but to lug a mbox.. I would harldy call it lugging..
For those situations where you really are in a bind.. its called pro-tools free.. ITS FREE and IT WORKS.. albeit limited but it works..
You guys are truly spoiled

Yes, this "dongle" would have to have and A/D conveter in it.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Again. I hate to be anal but the Mbox is 24/48. The only LE system capable of higher sampling rates is the 002.

The point has been made before but it's worth saying again. The Mbox is extremely portable, light, efficient and useful. The old saying says that you can never please everyone, but I think in this case you guys are being a little too picky.

I dont mind the mbox, but I'd love to see a pcmcia card solution also. Now that would be truely portable.

Yeah now that would be a great idea. But it would cost almost twice of what I paid of my Mbox.
