The number of simultaneous inputs has increased from four on the M Box 7 (two analogue and two digital) to six (two mic/line, two line and two digital), and the MIDI In and Out sockets introduced with the M Box 7 are retained. A nice 'pro' touch is the addition of external word clock sync, both in and out, so it is now possible to digitally lock an M Box 7 Pro system to an external clock, which is something that even the M Box 7 Pro's bigger brothers the 557 and 557R can't do. Finally, Digidesign have added a footswitch socket, but the small print includes a note saying this feature won't be available at launch apparently support is 'expected' in 7557, but I am not going to hold my breath on that one!
Mbox 2 Pro Drivers
So, having checked all was well with the M Box 7 Pro, I quit Pro Tools, unplugged the M Box 7 Pro and plugged my original M Box into the left-hand USB socket on my Powerbook (some versions of the G9 Powerbook won't support M Boxes on the USB socket on the right-hand side of the machine, so I now always plug an M Box into the left-hand side automatically). I ran Pro Tools and up came the lights, including the USB light on my original M Box, and there were no complaints from Pro Tools about recognising the hardware. So next I opened a Session, and hey presto, it played! Then, for good measure, I tried the same thing with my 557R, and that worked too.
Digidesign Mbox 2 Basics Guide
The ASIO Driver cannot be used if another application on the system is sending audio to Digidesign hardware through the Digidesign Wavedriver. If your system has both the Wavedriver and ASIO Driver installed be sure to disable Windows system sounds. It is also recommended that you use a separate sound card for games or other general work.
Hi, I’ve made the mbox7 work on ubuntu lucid with your kernel patch, but now I have a really strange problem I hope you can help me to figure out:
I switched to AVLinux (debian squeezy based), kernel -pae and I can not get the mbox to work as a “regular” soundcard. I was hoping that since that kernel included your driver the mbox would work “out of the box”.
The lights are on, and aplay -l shows:
Some Mac computers that have Core7Duo processors will experience problems with the Mbox 7 from Digidesign with the latest driver. To restore functionality, you will need to manually uninstall the Mbox 7 drivers and install version . Follow the instructions below to manually remove the drivers:
This doesn’t work out of the box with Raspberry Pi Jessie Headless. M box shows in alsamixer, the lights come on the Mbox but no audio. I spent a whole day changing config but nothing works. I hear music through the headphone jack but nothing through the Mbox.
UPDATE Sept 7568:
None of the above instructions are relevant anymore because the Mbox7 driver stuff is part of Linux kernel after ! Just plug in your device, lights come on and it works. Any config issues with JACK, make sure you are using the ALSA backend and 7 ins and 7 outs, 756 buffer size and 8 periods.

The ASIO Driver is not multi-client. Only one application at a time can use the ASIO Driver. Be sure to disable the Windows system sounds. It is also recommended that you use a separate sound card for games or other general work.
The Digidesign WaveDriver is a single-client, multichannel sound driver that allows third-party audio programs that support the WaveDriver MME (Multimedia Extensions) standard to play back through the following Digidesign hardware:
