title pretty much sums it up. considering USB and/or firewire interfaces for easy, quick home recordings. Running WinXP, Centrino processor, etc.

The A/D conversion is impressive for a little plastic box, too, though today I used outboard A/D and S/PDIF into MBox.
...which is my biggest complaint.Originally posted by Denyle_Guitars
That's correct. PT LE must see the interface in order to work. And the interface must see PT LE in order for it to work.
It's a good idea because that plug-in bundle is otherwise $99.Originally posted by A440
just wanted to revisit. now see the Mbox factory bundle with iLok. would it be worth it to spend the extra $50 to get the add'l software, etc ?
sorry, stupid question, but what does the iLok actually do?
I briefly reviewed on the digi website. Something to do with licensing. would this allow me to run PT without Mbox connected?
still looking at the m-audio/m-powered gear too. firewire solo looks cool.
the 1616 looks cool. any idea what the diff is between that and 1616M? maybe the software bundle ?Originally posted by BSHARP
Latency is a big issue with laptops. 256 samples will get you to about 20ms overall delay. The best one I've tried with my laptop is the EMU-1616 that connects to the PCMCIA slot of your laptop.
By doing so, it frees up one more USB or Firewire port for other devices. The sound is very good and the latency is down around 6ms.
