Default Is Mbox still shipping with PT 8 LE? or now 9?

As of this week, is anyone aware if the Mbox is being shipped with PT9 yet?

I heard a rumor once current stocks are sold Avid will ship begin to ship the Mbox with 9 instead of 8. (I don't know this to be fact so please don't quote me)

I only bring this up now because I've noticed a couple of resellers are advertising the Mboxes as including "PT LE" and not specifying whether it's 8 or 9.

Cheers

Sy

If they're saying it includes PT "LE", then it's referring to v. 8. PT9 is not called "LE" anymore.

According to my Sweetwater rep, they won't start shipping the new batch until the old ones are pretty much sold out.

but this will happen at some point?

I have an eleven rack, 002r and mbox 1 and am looking for the right time to switch out the mbox and 002r for a new mbox pro.

As I understand it, PT9 will not ship with hardware. More likely the hardware will ship with no software and hopefully at a reduced price, but software will be a separate purchase.

The new MBox models are listed on Avid's site as available with or without PT 9. And, of course, PT 9 software was available as a separate item from square one...

Just rockin'...what more is there?

Also, be aware that when the new hardware ships and includes PT9, it will be more expensive than buying the hardware now and doing the crossgrade to PT9. Avid have made this clear from the beginning, and they announced retail prices at NAMM that bear this out.

Does anyone have a link to or recall the retail prices?

You can see it on this page of the press release of everything from NAMM:

http://www.avid.com/US/press-room/Av...te-Their-Sound

You can scroll down the page to see it. But I have quoted it for you to make it easier:

"Pricing for Pro Tools + Mbox bundles begins at $699.99 for Pro Tools + Mbox Mini, $899.99 for Pro Tools + Mbox and $1,099.99 for Pro Tools + Mbox Pro. Pricing for standalone Mbox interfaces begins at $299.99 for the Mbox Mini, $499.99 for the Mbox and $799.99 for the Mbox Pro. All options will be available worldwide on March 21, 2011."

I'm not sure if these are MSRP or actual street prices. It's possible these are MSRP and the street prices will be slightly lower, but you can still get a general idea.

Once again, it's cheaper to buy now, and buy the PT9 crossgrade.
