No problem so far for Mac OS X. I didn't check OS9. >Also, suppose I hang the Mbox off the USB port of my desktop.

If you want to use ProTools LE (the software): it just works on Digidesign-hardware. You could try to get an Audiomedia III-PCI-card for about $200 at ebay (incl. ProTools LE), if you still have free PCI-slots in your desktop. If you're on OS9: there's a FREE stripped down version of ProTools v. 5.x which uses the built in audio-hardware; it's an early 5.x-version, which exactly I don't recall. There's no ProTools FREE X for now, but will come someday. -- Grüße... ...Maik (PGP-key on request) Phone: (+49) 0711-336 18 83 * Mobile: (+49) 0172-714 50 36 Fax'n'Phone: (+49) 01805-060 334 021 12 Please _don't_ send *.doc-files.
