Conclusion: The Avid Mbox Mini is a solid audio interface, and Pro Tools Express is a great way to get started recording and producing your own music; the limitations may prove a little frustrating for pro users, though.
Pros: Solid metal casing. Useful complement of ports and features. Good sound quality. Very low latency. Bundled Pro Tools Express software matches the UI and workflow of the full version. Works with PCs and Macs.
Cons: Expensive if you're not going to use Pro Tools. Requires USB iLok dongle for copy protection. Only one headphone jack. Pro Tools Express is limited to eight instrument tracks.
