Hello RO, After reading through the forum for a few hours... I've been playing for years and would like to record @ home. I have looked into the M-Box and then discovered the 002.... I would like to know from a beginner's stand point (I'm 34 yrs old) is the Digi 002r worth the extra $500 over the M-Box w/ factory Bundle? Are either good/ great for a first timer? Will I need to buy anything else to make them work? Should/ Could I be looking for something better/ easier/ less expensive? I have no other computer equipment and I'm running Mac OSX. Thank you for your help.
