    Hey:

    If I had two Mboxes plugged into my computer, would I be able to use both simultaneously? (i.e. - Four inputs with both at once, as opposed to two with one unit).

    Thanks.

    I honestly don't know.

    I would say that it wouldn't be a very cost effective way to go about it.

    Why not run a mixer into your m-box, wouldn't that be cheaper?

    What are you trying to accomplish? Just 4-inputs?

    I can't imagine that this would be the best way to go about it.

    Nope. LE only recognizes one piece of hardware.

    Not a stupid question but it won't work. I'm assuming you don't have two Mboxes or you would have already tried it so why not just get the 002?

    If by LE, you mean Logic Express, if you have OS 10.4, you can create an aggregate device and actually use more than one input device. I know I have heard folks using GarageBand doing this. I can't recall seeing this in the LE7 forums, though. But I'd think LE could do anything you can do in GB for the most part. Worth looking into.
    If by LE, you meant something else, excuse the post ;)

    Haven't tried it.

    May have second MBox at my disposal. Reason for inquiry.

    002 out of reach $-wise for now.

    Thanks for the replies gents!
