    Hey folks, I have a question regarding pro tools and my mbox mini. The pre's in the mini are pretty generic i'm guessing by the way it sounds. So my question is, if I get a nice pre to put in front of it, won't it still sound half assed because it will still go through the mbox last anyway? Or will a good pre still make a difference? I mic amps and acoustics. Thanks for any input,


    Marc

    The optical input bypasses the pres.

    Huh? I'm running mbox mini to computer via usb, then plug whatever i'm going to record with into the mini. What is an optical input bypass?
