Mbox family driver support for Mac OS Catalina
 
Will there be updated drivers for Mac OS Catalina? This is a very good product and still is one of the best audio interfaces.

Strongly doubt it. This product is years beyond its announced end of support date.

I just checked out the avid end of life dates and the mbox 3rd generation has just ended its support on 8/30/2019. This sucks. I wil have to buy another interface. :( but I can keep this for this system for now. I just wont update mojave to catalina. Not an issue.

Right, sorry I was not thinking . A few too many of different mbox models to remember. Anyhow for folks interested these are the official dates: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/e...-support-dates

So if my Mbox 3 is now past it's end date for support, is it safe to assume there will never be a driver for MacOS Catalina? Can anyone suggest a decent lower cost replacement which is supported?

Quick question as a new member: I have an Mbox Pro 3rd Gen with a listed end of support date of 3/1/2020, will there be drivers issued which are compatible with Catalina?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the Community

As of right now Pro Tools isn’t Catalina ready and doubt it will be soon so if they dont get PT Catalina ready before the EOL and EOS of the MBox you have then my guess is there wont be any Catalina driver for it.

No one here knows as its a user forum so if you want to be 100% certain it is best to buy a support ticket from Avids website and ask. I would ”hope” there would be one more driver update but as I said we don’t know as Avid never post these things upfront (which is not so good customer service) IMHO of course...

Best of luck / Christopher

That's a shame. I'm stuck with a new 2019 MBP that can't downgrade below Catalina. I know I'll eventually get Pro Tools support, but my interface support is completely unknown.

While I would like to continue using my MBox Pro as a monitor controller, I may be forced to upgrade to something actually supported by Catalina. Looking at one of the Dangerous Music boxes.

It really is bad customer support. They say the device is supported until 3/1/2020, but there's no indication that they will actually update the drivers and controller software to run on Catalina. I'm afraid they will just wait out the clock and then say no Catalina support after 3/1 passes...
