I just upgraded from the new MacBook to the new MacBook Pro. I had a friend of mine install Pro Tools 8 HD and I'm trying to use this with my audio interface which is a mbox2, just like I was doing with my MacBook.
Apparently, this is not working because the USB light on the mbox 2 isn't coming on! Now in order to make sound come from the Pro Tools I have to manually enable an application called XVX (which I really don't know what its for besides activating the built-in output.) I'm simply trying to track a beat into pro-tools like I used to do with my MacBook but it is not letting me because my interface isn't being turned on by the MacBook Pro.
The mic lights are dimly on and when I can press the phantom power 48v light on and that will come on but the light where it says USB and spdif is not coming on at all! So how can I simply put this beat into Pro Tools...is there something internally I have to do?
