Default Question about the Mbox Micro

Hey all. I have a question about the Micro that I can't seem to find clarification on. My apologies if I didn't catch the answer when I did a DUC search.

I know the Micro doesn't have an input for recording. But surely that doesn't mean that you can't record arm a track and re-amp tracks, or things like that right? Just because you can't send signal to PTLE, doesn't mean that you can record internally right?

I want one of these things for mixing away from the studio. I'm also considering the Mbox Mini, since it's not that much more, and gives me a "just in case" option for recording. I'd rather find one used to be honest. Actually, any Mbox will do if I only want the ability to launch PTLE and mix. I won't be doing it on a laptop though. It will be another Mac at a different location, so providing power to an Mbox of some kind is no problem for me.

Thanks!
Jason

You are correct. You can do everything in this little box but record external audio. I have one and love it. As far as the mini, I thought about it too but than realized that I don't bring my guitar when I travel and I'm not going to bring my 1000$ mic just to see it break on accident, plus my good preamp is in the studio. The thing is so small I take it everywhere. I save the real tracking for the studio.

Cool. That's about all I needed to hear then! I found one of these new for $209! But haven't purchased it yet. Digi is selling a bundle for $350 that includes a lanyard and a pair of Maudio IE-10 headphones. That's not a bad little bundle really. However, I have a set of Bose Tri-port In Ears that sound really good, so I really don't need the IE-10's. That Micro for $209 sounds like the way to go.

Does the Micro come with 7.4? Or 7.3 with the option to upgrade?

Most likely it will come with 7.3 and you can get a free update to 7.4 once you register.

I bought one a couple of months ago. It came with 7.4. I think it depends on a dealers stock and how new it is.

Even though I found it for $209 plus $15 shipping, I think I'm going to just call my buddy at Sweetwater and order it for $249 and free shipping. They are only like 90 minutes from me, and I'll get it like tomorrow!

So I'll just ask him what it comes with.
