I bring the Mbox Micro up because I am a Cubase/PC user, but I want to learn and MIX in Pro Tools without buying another interface. I own a Presonus Firestudio and any tracking I will do with that (at least for the near future). I am familiar with Pro Tools but I don't spend nearly as much time on it as I do Cubase. THE QUESTION: The cheapest and most convenient way to get Pro Tools without buying a full on interface seems to be the Mbox Micro. I could upgrade to 7.4 from there. And it might be my best bet at getting Pro Tools, like I said, if I bought an interface that is compatible with Pro Tools I probably wouldn't use it anyway! Why you ask? I don't know, I'm just curious, i'd plop down some money for it to "practice" on. I'm waiting... saving up to get a dedicated DAW Mac Pro with my audio software of my choice. I'm kind of winging it on my multi-purpose PC, and I'm very comfortable with Cubase but I'm trying to sink my nails into Pro Tools. Not sure what direction I'll go with a home studio but I have a feeling it will be Pro Tools when I have to shell out a couple few G's. Any other ideas on how to get a copy of Pro Tools just to mix on?
