    Hows it goin everyone? I have been trying to understand how to use an external reverb unit using the inserts on the Mbox. Has anyone done this before? The getting started guide really doesn't tell you anything on how to set it up. If you know how to do this can you please tell me the steps I need to go through to get it working properly?

    Are you trying to use it while tracking, or on something that's already been recorded?

    Then you need to get an insert cable like this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=home/search/detail/base_pid/333030/

    It's a TRS stereo to dual TS Mono cable (like a Y cable). I can't remember if it's Tip=Send Ring=Return or reverse, but it should be in the manual (.pdf in the protools directory). Basically it sends and recieves out of the same jack. Just hook the two TS ends up to the reverb i/o and plug the TRS end into your mbox insert jack.
