Digi 002 Rack is a single-box design that includes a sole FireWire (or 1394) connection to handle the exchange of information to and from your computer, so you just plug in and go. Along with the included Pro Tools LE software, Digi 002 Rack provides the means to create everything from top-notch demos to masterful DJ mixes to superb radio spots, all with 24-bit clarity and up to 96 kHz sample rate support. Its analog, digital, and MIDI capabilities enable Digi 002 Rack to handle a wide variety of I/O configurations, while dedicated monitor and headphone outputs allow you to keep a close ear on progress.

Getting your Digi 002 Rack system up and running involves a quick, simple, five-step process. First, you load your Pro Tools LE software onto your computer. Second, you connect your computer to the Digi 002 Rack with the included FireWire cable (If your PC — some Sony computers, for instance — utilizes a 4-pin FireWire port, you’ll need to purchase a special 4-pin to 6-pin FireWire to make the connection). Third, you power up Digi 002 Rack. Fourth, you connect your signal sources — mics, instrument cables, patch cords, etc. — to the I/O on the back of Digi 002 Rack. Lastly, you launch Pro Tools LE software. At that point, you’re ready to go.
