    Switching to Digi interface...
    Hey folks. I've been having problems with my M-Audio FW410, so I'm trying to use Logic with my MBox 2 Pro interface instead. Logic doesn't seem to recognize it so far. Here's what I'm using: MacPro quad-core tower, Logic 8.0.2, Korg Triton Extreme keyboard, ProTools LE 7.4 (which isn't really supported by my OS - 10.5.6, but it kinda works, for editing at least). I've seen some advice mentioning the Digi CoreAudio Manager, which doesn't list the MBox. The MBox does show up in my Audio-MIDI Setup and Mac preference panels. Any thoughts?

    Hi Sammy, Have you got the latest drivers for the MBox2 from the Digidesign website & is the Mbox 2 officially compatible with OSX 10.5.6? Have you tried unplugging the Mbox, restarting your Mac and then pluggin it in again... then open Logic and try and choose it as the device? Cheers Rounik

    Well, I'm slowly figuring out through a process of elimination what the problem isn't.... I managed to get an upgrade for the Digi items, although even this isn't fully compatible with 10.5.6 (PT7.4.2 is apparently in the testing stages; only the new PT8 is fully approved for the newest Leopard, and it's not free). But it gives me signal in both ProTools and Logic, so that's a start. However, once I got that far, I realized that even with the M-Audio box and drivers eliminated, I'm still getting noise from the MBox. The only difference between my set-up before and the current one is the MBox is now directly connected to my Korg keyboard via 2 mono instrument cables. So it seems that there are two possibilities now: A) either the Korg is always noisy (ground problem?) or B) I'm using poor quality cables. Is SPDIF potentially a better connection?
