    Hello everyone --

    I'm just wondering what would be the best way to setup my Focusrite ISA 220 with an MBOX?
    I just want to make sure im not coloring my sound too much. Here's what im doing so far:

    I have the Focusrite ISA 220 going into the MBOX input via XLR to TRS cable ( its so that the input bypasses the MBOX's built in mic pre ).
    From there i choose Line on the MBOX.

    I adjust the Focusrite Input Gain until im getting good levels on the ISA 220, and i leave the Output and unity gain.
    From there on i adjust the input gain knob on the MBOX until im getting good levels in Pro Tools.

    Is this proper?

    Or would someone suggest a different approach. Thanks :)
