I also have one at home. I'll file a ticket to add to the chorus.

Did anyone here update to 10.15 and try out their Mbox yet? Any word on if existing drivers carry over and work?

I tried installing the driver on my Catalina laptop. It threw up an error message and wouldn't go.

I haven't tried upgrading a boot drive with that app already installed, but I doubt it would work since it clearly says "32-bit" in Activity Monitor.

The only response to the support ticket was that "Mojave is the last compatible OS". Honestly seems like a crock to me. I'm not that attached to it and it might be old but it is still technically supported. Pro Tools officially supports Catalina in some fashion now and buying a new Mac gets you Catalina. Avid should have been able to get a driver working. Shame on them.

Catalina came out in october of 2019, end of support mbox3 pro in 2020. They must upgrade drivers for catalina macos, otherwise, I will not buy anything from AVID!

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?
