ProTools 7 LE mbox question

Im going to record a 2 channel live gig, I will trim the beginning and the end, put a couple of fades in there. Im thinking if I should dust off my old mbox2 and see if the micpres are okey.

There will be no post production and I will deliver a CD just after the gig.

However do I have to bounce the entire show (2 hours) in realtime or can I trim the recording and export it to 44100/16 somehow without bouncing ?

Thanks for any help!

Exactly. Trim the recording, fade top and tail, consolidate (shift+alt+3) and expor (shift+apple+k). Pro Tools basics!

I found the mbox! BUT I bumped into another problem instead...

I only got Protools 8.0.3 and a brand new macbook pro 13" bought yesterday (lion). Any idea how to kickstart the installation without getting the "the following installation step failed: run preflight script for Pro Tools Creative Collection. Contact Software manufacturer for assistance" Error ?

Any help are appreciated!

I have a feeling that 8.0.3 is the first version that doesn't support the original Mbox. Original Mbox is also not supported on Lion. Someone might have a workaround, but officially you're out of luck I'm afraid. I personally wouldn't want to trust an unsupported rig with a live recording, if it was important!
