Yes, I did get it to work a while back. I have not had a chance to
check if these instructions work with the newest DIGI drivers (6.4 I
think) yet, but, I can check tonight. Hope this helps,
Using the Mbox with PD
I think that this is complete. If not let me know and I'll update it
mmturner at mindspring.com
Three things to load/setup first:
setup according to their very good documentation
2) PD compiled with Jack
Direct link is:
Found on the page:
You will need to set this up a bit.
- move the pd-0.37-0-Jack folder to where ever you plan to keep it
- Inside the pd-0.37-0-Jack directory, run the "PD (launcher)"
(it may open wish for a second and then wish may close)
- Go to the Preferences for PD (Launcher) and set the command line
the "./" before pd -jack was needed on my system as this bin
directory is not in my Path
- Save the Command line, then close the PD (launcher)
3) Plug in your Mbox
- run the DigiDesign CoreAudioSetup
- click the supported Applications button
- click Add New Application button
- select JackPilot
- Jack Pilot should be added to the list
- click Done and then Done
Now the running procedure (do this in the order given):
1) plug in your Mbox
2) launch JackPilot
3) in JackPilot, set the Preferences (in the JackPilot Menu)
set the Interface drop-down menu to Digidesign HW (MBox)
4) in JackPilot, click Start Jack
5) launch the PD (launcher) app
wish should open and it should use the Mbox as your I/O
When you shut down, close Wish and PD Launcher before trying to shut
Hope this is helpful, please let me know if it works or if I should
change some things in the instructions.
