    I used to own one but I sent it back for an M-Audio FastTrack. The mini works good but there are some down sides...

    Mine kept on pitchshifting the audio which affected the monitoring..

    PC, I think they work better on Macs. I use Cubase mostly because the simplest things in Pro Tools take 10 mins to solve whereas the simplest things in Cubase take 5 secs.

    Every program got there ups n downs. I dislike protools cuz u gotta listen to the shyt every time u wanna quick bounce.

    I fuck with logic pro heavy. Most engineers I know be using tools abelton live or logic pro.

    Mbox two mini is alright I git one when I went to school I actually have no need for it I just got an apogee duet that shyt is amazing.

    Mb ill sell that mbox 2 now that I think of it

    I use the m-audio fast track and I have never had a problem with it playing through one ear...

    If you're going to buy a fast track you should just buy the mini, Avid formerly digidesign owns M-Audio anyway.

    And for the guy whose bitching about realtime bouncing in PT, If you listen to a Bounce in PT vs a bounce in logic A/Bing them theres a quality difference, plus don't you want a final listen to your mix.

    This issue is solved by simply going to m-audio settings in the tray and enabling Mono on Monitor Mix. I'm using m-audio mobilepre and had this problem back in 2006 when I bought it. I could hear my voice when recording only in one ear.
