Default ASIO DRIVER UPDATES

I've been using the Mbox as my sound device for a year now. I use it with Cubase SX. ( I know this is a PT LE forum, but theres no forum for mbox users..)This has been working fine (apart from the known issues) with the beta driver 5.3.3. untill Cubase upgraded to SX 2.0. Now I need to update the mbox' ASIO driver. But this is only possible if i pay for a ProTools LE upgrade first.
A program that I do not use. (I know its a great program, but this is my choice).
I chose Mbox because I was sure to have a good customer support from Digidesign and I was certain that driver updates would be there when nescessary.

Now it seems that if You dont use Protool´s You'll have to stick with the betadriver more or less forever unless You pay to upgrade the software that came with the Mbox. That, I think, is a bit unfair. Is there anyway you'd consider releasing the driver in some sort of standard PC version that will work with all ASIO software ?? This would be kinda logic, also from a sales perspective. Its also how ANY other sound device works... and why I thought it natural for this Mbox to work.

Default Re: ASIO DRIVER UPDATES

Your info is outdated.....

http://www.digidesign.com/download/asio/

Free driver for stand-alone ASIO....

from that location:

The Digidesign ASIO Driver is a multichannel, multimedia sound driver that allows third-party audio programs which support the ASIO standard to record and play back through the following Digidesign hardware on Windows XP Professional or Home with Pro Tools LE 6.1.1 installed:

Digi 002
Digi 002 Rack
Digi 001
Mbox
AudioMedia III
The Digidesign ASIO Driver 6.1.1 can also be used as a stand-alone driver (without Pro Tools software installed), with the above Digidesign hardware.


good luck!

Dont know if something is misunderstood.

But when I bought my Mbox the package included Protools 5.3 I think.
Now if i want an update to my driver it will only install if protools has been upgraded
to 6.1. And this costs as far as I can see.
This way third party users will only get the updates if protools is updated as well.


Am I not correct ?

He is correct.. you can only have one version of dalwdm.sys installed. If you have an earlier version of PT than 6.1.1, then you can't install the ASIO 6.1.1 version and still have PT v 5.x installed.

Nothing can be helped.. it's called progress.

If you don't use Pro Tools, then the 6.1.1 ASIO driver won't support the MIDI anyway.. for the MIDI to function in the standalone version, PT 6.1.1 must be installed.

Now this is really a letdown.
The ads says it'll work with third party programs, but not that further updates will cost you
hundreds of dollars over time, if you want the errors fixed.
In my case, this means that it runs with a BETA driver. And if I want the final release the Mbox
is now 90 Dollars up in price. And what about the next update. Will that be another 90 ?
I my country it's not even legal to market products that way... This makes the Mbox far less interesting for non Protools users. And I feel screwed.

There is an asio driver for 5.3.x right here:

http://www.digidesign.com/download/asio/53.cfm

I use it, and have no problems whatsoever.

I dont know if Im speakin a secret language but I'll try once more :

I WANT THE 6.1 DRIVER BECAUSE IT HAS SOME ERROR FIXES THAT I REALLY NEED !!

I CANNOT GET THAT BECAUSE WHEN I GOT MY MBOX IT CAME WITH PT LE 5.3.3.

THE 6.1 DRIVER WILL ONLY WORK WITH PT LE 6.1 AND UPGRADING COSTS ME 90 DOLLARS !!!

THE LINKS THAT YOU SAY HAS REAL DRIVERS ONLY CONTAINS BETADRIVERS.

THERE IS NO "NON-BETA"-DRIVERS FOR 5.3.3 WHY DO YOU THINK IT SAYS BETA 5.3.3 B 2 ?

DIGIDESIGN WANTS ME TO PAY TO FIX THEIR ERRORS !!

NO OTHER SOUND DEVICE THAT I KNOW OF HAS THE NERVE TO CRAVE MONEY FOR DRIVERUPDATES !!

Think I figured it out now..

It seems that if you remove the PT software completely from your computer,
the 6.1.1 driver will install as a stand alone driver.
I'll try this at once.
