    Product Description

    Digidesign Mbox2 is a next-generation USB-powered audio/MIDI production system that builds on the performance and simplicity of the original Mbox - Digidesign’s most popular personal studio product ever.
    The Mbox 2 still is a compact USB powered unit with the capability of 4x2 simultaneous channels of I/O on analog, digital and MIDI connections but still retains the easy operation of the original Mbox. The original Mbox changed the way songwriters, DJs, studio mixers, and post production engineers created and produced music. Mbox 2 delivers professional performance which makes it an important evolutionary step from the original Mbox.
