    HERES A QUESTION: any way i can get my mbox to talk to my sonar and AA programs? i know that digi hardware is proprietary but has any one been able to pull this off? i like pt but will not be able to really use it on my laptop until i get a faster one......and i like the mbox i would hate to haveto get another similar unit that does the same thing just so i can get monitoring and better/cleaner signal mics connected.

    ghellquist---said this:

    "Install Digidesigns ASIO or WME drivers. They are on the CD as well as freely downloadable from their website. I use ASIO with other programs and generally it works quite OK. Note however that the MBox is "single application", ie do not assign the MBox as standard windows output as that will tie up the box. If you go with WME instead, download the helper program from Digidesigns homepage."

    so i was curious about this :
    how do i make sure that i do not accidently assign it? it works with others programs huh? that is very exciting. which program (wme or asio) do i want to go with if i use Adobe audition and on occcasion sonar(i guess i have cubase and logic too)?i checked the website and i only see wavdrivers and asio driver for 6.1.1....will this work with 6.4 or later or does it matter since i am getting it to use my mbox with other apps? thanks

    Actually the latest versions of the ASIO drivers allow it to be multiprogram. You should be able to just set it as your global I/O and let it run.

    i guess for me, i am not sure what the latest version is. i looked on the site and there are asio drivers for 6.1.1 is this what i need? i know there are later versions of pt le but i am not getting the drivers for use with le so which version do i need?

    keep it simple. Download the ASIO version. 6.1.1 is OK. Or if you preferr it, you will find a version on you 6.4 CD.

    Run only one audio app at a time. Quit Audition before you start Sonar or Cubase or Logic or whatever. Only one audio app at a time.

    Don´t assign windows sounds (beeps and windows opening and such) to the MBox. Simple. Works.
