3 months from the moment of the official release and almost a year from the moment of Catalina beta present- they sit, do nothing, I go nuts from such companies! fatal failure

I really want them to provide a driver, but let's look at this objectively: they provide support until March of 2020. Which means tech support, repairs, and best effort. I think the fine print probably doesn't include up-to-the-minute compatibility. Note that it says on the site:

Quote:
Driver updates for some of our Audio hardware products may be provided beyond the Final Sale Date.
Final sale date was March 2015 (!).

On the other hand, everyone should register a ticket. It's just a matter of programmer hours for them.

Default Re: Mbox family driver support for Mac OS Catalina

Hi everybody,

A week ago I updated my Mac to Catalina, and my audio interface is the Mbox 3 Pro.
To be honest everything work just fine, no issues at all so far.
So, if you have the Mbox 3 Pro and thinking of updating the Mac to Catalina, do a backup and give it a go! It should be working, and if it doesn't you can simply use Time Machine.
Again, I'm working right now on my PT HD 2019, iMac 2017, Catalina 10.15.3 using Avid Mbox 3 Pro... All good!

this is fake information, because drivers for firewire from mboxpro 3 do not support on catalina and where does the backup copy?

This is interesting. I wonder if because you updated (instead of a clean install), the underlying driver continued to function. Can you launch the MBox Pro application? I doubt you can, which would make adjusting parameters impossible. Post again with more info!

You can believe it or not, but I am working using the Mbox 3 pro and Catalina, and it works! I don's see the point of giving you a fake information.

Ok, so,
yes: I'm not able to open the Mbox 3 pro application, and
yes: I updated instead of doing a clean install.
Apart from the Mbox app that doesn't work, all the rest works perfectly, so at least I don't have to buy a new audio interface right now.

Default Re: MBox 3 Pro w/ Catalina

I have Mbox 3 Pro. I just tried Catalina OS and the result was Pro Tools 2019.12 could no longer recognize Mbox Pro. Mbox Pro was not an option in the Playback Engine dropdown.

Do I have to ditch my MBOX?

What are my options?

Any info on this would be really helpful. Thanks

In my home studio, I have ordered a Metric Halo LIO-8/4p to replace the MBox Pro 3. It doesn't seem like a Catalina driver is coming. Your options are stay on Mojave or lower, or replace your audio interface.
