Question about Mackie MR5 MR5 Reference Monitor

1 Answer

One of my MR5's is not working. Running through Mbox2 mini to Pro Tools 8. I have tried everything I can think of. The cables are good, the mbox is fine, and everything in Pro Tools looks fine. Is this monitor blown? This is the 1st time I have hooked them up.

Swap speakers to find if the problem is the speaker. If the problem follows the speaker it will require repairing.

I need an activation code for pro tools 8?


When ProTools is installed on a computer it needs to be authorized to work. This has to be done via a dongle, a socalled iLok . The authorization is done by www.ilok.com. You need a dongle with the authorized registration of ProTools on your computer to make ProTools work.

Right channel cuts out when I increase the volume


Blown or defective Headphone Amp IC or alternatively a defective Pot. Either way only AVID can fix it for you.

Outside parts and service is impossible.

Assuming you are on a Windows system, go to Control panel/Sounds and devices/ and check that the Mbox2 appears as the default in the Audio and also Voice tabs/panes while unit is connected. If it is not, select it in each... if it is not in the list offered, then the drivers have not been installed for the Mbox.

Sound pops an crackels how do you change fse on mini mbox


Fuse would have NOTHING to do with the problem. Make sure to use balanced audio lines... XLR or TRS to mics or other devices.

Check if the Mbox2 has an echo setting that echos the audio from its input. If you want the audio to loop through the PC then it will have to echo there instead. Check that in "Sound and devices" of the PC are all set to transfer via the MBox for voice and playback instead of the internal PC audio system.

The recording level to my Mbox is very low for some reason. I am running Pro Tools LE and I have a shure 87a microphone. Every time I attempt to record a track, the input volume is incredibly low...


Make sure you turn the Phantom power on the Mbox2 on as the Shure 87A requires it being a condenser mic.Make sure you use XLR mic cables. These are just things to check on.

My mbox2 will not install no more on my hp windows7 64bit get message Proot8 not vaild exec of win22. tried to install with hp support but could not


There has been a virus (nesky) that pertained to Win22.... if there is a chance you have that scaan for it first.
If that isn't the problem POSSIBLY an anti-virus program or anti_spyware is blocking it. Disconnect from teh internet and disable ALL these anti programs and try installing the Mbox2 again.
Last method would be to try installing it in SAFE mode if nothing else works.

try hooking headphones to the output and see if the crackling is still there.

then, try it with the speakers, at a lower computer voume level and higher speaker volume level. perhaps the headphone output is too loud and distorting in the speaker inputs.

It is possible, you can simply put a Y-cable for Mic or a splitter for the mbox and the Mic. You can plug the mic directly to the mixer then the other jack on the splitter connected to the mbox.
