Yah, whether or not they are better than the 002 is up in the air...it seems like the 002 might be better sound qual...but I've yet to hear a solid answer from gearslutz.com or here, of a direct comparison.Originally posted by MichaelK
Interesting... I like the MBox's pres quite a bit. A/D converter, too. I've never used the 002 pres.
Holding off on Digi 002 vs. MBox based on which way the flatulence blows on an internet forum regarding the microscopic comparative quality of their preamps is ridiculous. They're completely different! One has two channels, no more, and the other has eight analog plus S/PDIF and optical. You're seriously worried about which preamp is better?Originally posted by Pointbreakd

I see the biggest deciding factor between the Mbox and 002r is if you need more than two inputs.Originally posted by Pointbreakd
I hear what you all are saying...but on the other hand it will be pretty bad if I end up getting the mbox and it doesnt come close to the sound qual of the 002r I've been used to in the studio I just tracked in.

I was just getting started so I went with the Mbox to try it. I like some of the stuff I'm doing with the Mbox and PT so I'll probably get a 002r in the next year or so. I'll put the 002r in my studio and use the Mbox as a dongle for remote mixing (PT doesn't work unless either an Mbox or 002 is connected to the computer).
Eh I disagree (partly because I started it ). It's good sometimes to hear people opinions and experiences. Granted I agree it depends greatly on one's engineering skills/the room etc...its good to hear that a session recorded with the Mbox has seen major television networks.Originally posted by MichaelK
Nonetheless, some interfaces have better sounding preamps and A/D converters than others.
But somehow I don't think this thread is going anywhere at all...
