I feels like saying "good bye" to a good friend.

What a drag.... I have had an PT Free, AMIII card, Digi 001, Digi 002 Rack, Mbox 1, Mbox 2 Micro and Mbox 2 Mini. The original Mbox is my favorite of them all, reliable, very portable paired with a 12" ibook, good sounding preamps if careful. Not as bulletproof stable as the AMIII and Digi 001 were, but as close as I can get to running PT LE on a rig that approaches the simplicity of a Portastudio.

Looks like I will be sticking with 8.0.1 for a long time. That Mbox Mini was nothing but heartache and random static for me, gave it away for free, felt like fleecing someone to charge for something that I could never personally get to work on a consistent basis.

I had one and traded it up my 002 and I was much happier with the 002. I traded MATTP for his old MBox so that I could set up a VERY technically challenged friend with something like 5.3.

Still its sad to see something go EOL

Oh great..... 8.0.1 will be the last version that will work with my Digi 002 Rack as well since I am running it on a Mac PowerPC......

Thanks for obsoleting my favorite LE interface AND my favorite computer to work on at the same time Digi!!!

I am so done blowing $ on gear; I won't be chasing the carrot for PT LE 8.0.2 and beyond or upgrading to the interfaces that will support the newer software. Enough is enough.
