    Wassup everyone? I use mbox1 to record death metal and black metal so it gets real loud and insane. I need more processing power, I cant record anything loud or it gives me that damn error "Drive cannot get audio fast enough blah blah blah". I have almost smashed my computer because of this message a few times and I'm so sick of it. Its like if I play blast beats, error message, or if my vocalist screams, error message. Its enough to make me wanna cut my arm off!! The only thing I could do to get my drums recorded was pretty much lower everything to the point that I was playing to the song in my HEAD!! I could only faintly hear the guitar and if I put the click on, ERROR!! I know I've seen a box for processing power for pro tools with like a blue bottom, I just dont remember what it is called. Its like an external processor for audio. If anyone knows what its called let me know or if you have a trick to get the recording to stop interupting my sessions with the error message I so deeply loath PLEASE let me know. Thanks.

    Yeap, that will do it.
    And recording something loud doesn't really need any more processing power. :-?
