    ok so here is the deal

    ive got these equipment running into my asio drives

    Line pod xt live - has its own asio drive
    Mbox 2 - same thing
    M-audio keyboard - interlinks with the podxt drive

    Ok so this setup works for me...
    Duplex Asio drive:
    I can hear the Midi drumkits, i can record the pod xt and listen to everything

    but when i try to connect the mbox to record vocals i can record them yes, but i cant hear the vocal tracks, i cant hear any audio track for that matter.
    So i have to switch back to the duplex drive to hear what i recorded....
    So i cant really record the vocals with any audio tracks to hear

    cant i run the mbox and the duplex drive at the same time?
    this is ^#$%ed up

    That setup sounds messed up. This is the way I would do it:


    Midi out from Mbox to Pod XT Midi in/Midi Out from Pod XT back to Mbox/ Midi thru from Pod XT to Keys


    Audio out from Pod XT to Mbox line in 1 and 2 into ProTools.
    If need be send the line outs from the keyboard into Mbox line in 3 and 4.
    Monitors from line 1 and 2 out of the Mbox.

    If you insist on using Cubase, you can only use one ASIO Driver at a time. When you switch from the Pod XT to the Mbox, you need to move your monitor lines over to the Mbox. That's how ASIO Works. It's a routing system. When you switch over to the Mbox, all audio functions move over to the Mbox. Input and output.

    That being said, if you set it up properly as I described above you should be able to use all of the functions of all of your gear straight through one interface.

    The Mbox A/D converters should be the better choice.

    Sorry I don't have anything to contribute, but I do have a question and I'm not asking it to be a jerk. I'm curious.

    Why would you use an Mbox with Cubase rather than ProTools?
