Default Mbox pro

I've had my Mbox pro now since 2016. My question is why hasn't the windows driver been updated? The last update date is 2014. This driver tends to be a bit unstable at times. Sometimes it just disconnects and the sound stops. Other times, it can crash my computer. Out of frustration I sometimes hook my Firetudio Mobile up but it is smaller without the extra inputs but the Presonus drivers are updated frequently and the interface is much more stable.

What's going on with MBox Pro?

Depends on which model you have.

Here is the Avid end of life page for all Avid products with end of sale and end of support for the products. Good to have a look at atleast.

Looks like I'll be buying a new interface. Probably will go with either Focusrite or Presonus as I really don't like the Avid drivers much.

Hi, do you still have your Mbox 3 Pro? Do you still have the breakout cable for it?

If so do you also have a digital multimeter with continuity test on it to be able to determine the pin connections of the Breakout cable for me please?

I'm buying a second hand Mbox 3 Pro and the seller doesn't have the breakout cable unfortunately, so I'm wanting to make my own but for that I need to know what pins connect to what connector.
