Default Re: MBox 3 Pro w/ Catalina

I managed to make it work with some workaround:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6Y2-qNsH7g

1- This doesn't work on a fresh install of Catalina.
2- Install Mojave and Mbox Pro 3 drivers
3- Update from Mojave to Catalina
4- It should be working without the control app. If it doesn't work (or stopped working after a while), boot up a Windows (Boot Camp) with Mbox Pro 3 drivers. As soon as the interface starts working again on Windows, reset to MacOS.

It might work copying the Mojave driver files to the same directory on a fresh install of Catalina. But I'm not willing buy a U$ 50 Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapter to test that on my MBP.

Unfortunately, I don't think they have any interest in supporting their prosumer line of products, which is a shame. Avid, if you're reading these things, throw us poor prosumers a bone and give us a 64-bit driver for Mac (and PC, assuming they don't have one), at least for the Mbox 3 Pro. A little kindness today would seed customer loyalty tomorrow, when we might be studio owners with decent cash to spend who remember you guys sticking by your product line.
Did Avid really just brick my Mbox 3 when I updated to Catalina?

That's the definition of crappy customer support. Now I have to go buy a whole new audio interface just because Avid is too forking lazy to write a new driver?

Say it ain't so.

There is a good chance there will never be a Mbox 3 Pro driver for Catalina. Its end of support was March 1st 2020 so nobody knows..

In theory the should release the driver (even late) because PT was supported on Catalina since 2019.12 but in practice they have not released it and now the boxes are already out of support.

More that Apple bricked it, but I agree that devices need to be updated longer then they are.

One advantage to Windows - I'm still using an old M-Audio ProFire 2626 with Windows 8 drivers from 2013 on the latest Win 10.
