    I believe it was in Tape-Op mag that I read something about the Digi002 product coming out early next year. Supposedly, a firewire-based version of the Digi001. Digi, of course, NEVER talks about unreleased products (although nearly every other manufacturer does).

    Anyone have more details?

    I haven't heard anything about this, but it would be great if it would work in conjunction w/ the 001 so we get 8 extra in and outs (sort of how you can do it w/ the 828). I would get a few to get up to 24 ins and outs so i can mix externally.

    Also, raising the number of possible tracks to 24 would be great! (or even allowing 24 stereo tracks...i use synths and it maxes out at 12 stereo tracks! ahh!)

    Oops..i meant raising the track count to 32! But again, i'd be happy if my stereo tracks didnt' take 2 away from that number.

    would love to hear more about the digi 002 - first one to post a picture of it wins a prize :)

    (prize is my undying admiration hehe)

    My sources say don't expect a "Digi 002" anytime soon - if ever. I too, would like to see a firewire version, and the ability to use two or three of them at once on a single CPU, but it doesn't look like that's likely to happen anytime in the foreseeable future - if at all.

    As far as increased track counts, I have heard absolutely nothing. I'd be happy with 32 tracks and / or the stereo tracks counting as "one" track instead of two (IOW, 24 stereo OR mono tracks). esides, isn't there some sort of a glitch in the program that allows you to get more than 24 tracks if you do a certain something while creating new tracks or something? Seems I've read rumors about that (and before anyone asks, I have no idea how it's done...)

    On a much brighter note: Win XP support IS coming! I saw an MBox on a XP system at NAMM. It's not coming out next week (or even next month) but according to the Digi people I spoke with, it should be out by spring or early summer at the latest.

    I agree with Phil.
    When rumors first started circulating about the M-box, people just assumed it would be the 002. I'd be surprised if a real 002 has even made it past a discussion at the boardroom table :D

    Go to digidesign.com cause the new firewire version of digi001 is here, its called Mbox.
    finaly we can record on laptops usig protools.
  8. MBox is a USB interface. Unfortunately. May be time to upgrade to TDM after they go on sale. Talked to an engineer in CA that said give it 2 months and there will be alot of bargains out there on the TDM systems.
