Ok... the small studio is ever a-changing, but at least the brain has been purchased... it is a Mac iBook g4 1.33mhz with 1.25RAM.... I went for portability over power... This is best for the musicians I work with. So as far as portable interfaces go, what do you think of the Digidesign MBox with ProTools Le versus the M-Audio FW410 running either Producer Factory Pro or M-powered Pro Tools? I have no experience with either, but I hear a lot of latency complaints about anything that uses USB as it's method of communication.
