You can grab an Mbox Pro audio interface and a copy of Pro Tools 10 (w/ upgrade to Pro Tools 11) for $759.55 shipped at Amazon. This package regularly sells for $1000 elsewhere, saving you as much as $240.
The Mbox Pro interface features 8 inputs and 8 outputs total (6 analog), 4 mic pre-amps, 4 insert points for external processing, Midi, DI inputs, a built-in guitar tuner, an iLok 2 USB Key and everything else you’ll need to get going.
Next up, if you need a complete recording suite B&H has a deal on a Pro Tools package today as well. You get Pro Tools 11 and an Mbox interface (not the Pro model) plus KRK Rockit 6 studio monitors ($399 value), a Rode NT1-A Vocal Recording Bundle w/ mic ($239 value) and a number of other goodies like cables, a mic stand and speaker isolation pads for $999.99 shipped.
A full copy of Pro Tools brand new on its own is $600 and the best current price on the Mbox is about $252, adding the other goodies you get in this bundle you are saving as much as $400 compared to the individual prices. Keep in mind that if you already own Pro Tools 10, you can upgrade to 11 for $299.
KRK speakers are a recording industry standard along with Pro Tools software and interfaces. All of the hardware in these packages has received a 4+ star rating on Amazon.
