Digidesign announces the new Digidesign® Mbox® 2 Mini, an ultra-compact, USB-powered Pro Tools LE™ system that packs professional features into a robust, easy-to-use audio workstation. The newest and smallest member of the Mbox 2 family, Mbox 2 Mini delivers superior sound quality and professional hardware design, and is the most affordable Pro Tools LE system ever. And with its diminutive size, the Mbox 2 Mini makes it even easier for novices and professionals alike to create and mix music while on the go.

"When we released our Mbox over four years ago, we were very excited to make Pro Tools® available at a sub-$500 price point," states Dusty DiMercurio, marketing manager of Digidesign's personal studio product line. "With Mbox 2 Mini, we're proud to expand our Mbox 2 family to include a solution at around $300—reaching a new level of affordability for a Pro Tools LE hardware/software system."

Powered by industry-standard Pro Tools LE software, the Mbox 2 Mini ships with a powerful set of creation tools for composing, recording, and mixing music and audio. Mbox 2 Mini includes some of the same tools used by many audio professionals including DigiRack™ plug-ins, Bomb Factory® plug-ins, the Xpand!™ sample-playback/synthesis workstation, and the Pro Tools Ignition Pack, which features an extensive collection of creation tools from Ableton, Propellerhead Software, IK Multimedia, Broadjam.com, and more.
