Default So, no more audio interfaces from Avid for Pro Tools (Standard) then?

Hi, everyone,

I bought a new MacBook Pro 2018 15 inch and realised I need some adaptors to keep working with my Avid MBOX 3 Pro (TB3->TB2 and TB2->FW800 and FW800 to FW400). But then I went on to see the Avid website, and (just now) was surprised that the MBOX 3 Pro was out of production and was shocked to see that there is no new audio interface from AVID, except the old USB Eleven Rack and the interfaces for PT Ultimate (Pro Tools HDX/HD I/O/Omni/MTRX).
The end of support for my Avid Mbox 3 Pro is 1st March 2020, that is only 1.5 years. So, should I expect Pro Tools to stop supporting it after that date?
In that case, what would be a good substitute for the Mbox 3 Pro? And why Avid didn't make a new interface with USB-C, for example?

Any thoughts are welcome.

When support runs out for your MBox, it will still work with PT, but no new software/drivers will be developed for that hardware platform.

Check out the Focusrite Clarett USB range. Nice interfaces and they have USB-C connections.
