Does Mac Panther recognise an Mbox natively?
on May 17, 2005 at 7:17:02 pm

I have a buddy who uses an Mbox on his PC. He also has a Mac that we want to use Skype on so we can talk long distance (I don't think he wants to hook the PC up to the net!). But, he has no audio input on his Mac. Will Panther recognise the Mbox through USB in System Preferences/Sound without the ProTools LE software? If he can prove he bought the Mbox legally, will the company send him a free Mac version of the software? And yes, I know a headphone for Skype is cheap, we're just experimenting with what we have on hand.

Thanks for the response, but it doesn't answer the question. As I said in the original message, I know there are cheaper, more obvious alternatives, but we're trying to work with what he has in hand, which is an MBox. But thanks for at least trying to help, it's sincerely appreciated.

What's wrong with the software that came with the Mbox. The MBox and PTLE aren't sold separately.

Thanks for continuing to inquire! The short answer is I don't know. I assumed that it only came with the PC version of the software, not the Mac version. The easy way to solve all this would be to just get him to plug it into the Mac and try it! I'm sorry, I thought this would just be an easy yes/no answer, not the 3 day deal it's become. It's not that important! Thanks again for trying, but I think we'll just let it drop for now, and not keep bothering fine folks like yourself. Thanks again!

MBox ships with both Mac and PC software included.
If you load the core audio software on the Mac, the MBox should be seen as an input/output device under Audio Midi setup.
