Anyone on a mac w/Catalina and a mbox that doesn't work because it lacks a driver: Download and install the demo, run PT, and you'll know in 30 minutes if it works or not. I'm pretty confident you'll be back to work with your mbox within the hour, and never look back.

The demo beeps every 30 minutes, I think.

Ben, you're talking about the original Mbox, as far as I know this was a USB Interface. The Mbox Pro (3rd Gen) is a Firewire Interface, so this probably won't work.

You're right, of course. Thanks for pointing that out.

Its because OS X Catalina has completely made 32 bit obsolete and well a lot of the drivers were still using 32 bit code...So, we are all out of luck...

Good thing, this will force people like me to buy a new USB Audio that I know is pure 64 bit...This will actually help alleviate a lot of bottle necking...

Now, choices, choices, choices...

Still, USB-Audio.Com claims they make a 3rd-party driver for many old interfaces and that it's Catalina compatible, so 64bit, and I believe them. I just got the firewire part wrong.

Mbox has EOL'd 8/30/2019 and last supported on Mojave 10.14.4 (not the latest release) so I would not hold my breath on Catalina compatibility

When did they tell you so? I reached out to Avid last month and the support person told me there were no drivers nor there will be in the future. He gave me the Mbox Pro end of support date, blah, blah, blah...
