Default Digi 003 firewire w/ Thunderbolt 3 - MBP 2016?

Is anyone successfully using a Digidesign 003 with a MacBook Pro 2016, connecting the Firewire 400 to Thunderbolt 3?

Thank you.

No, but I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro connecting via Thunderbolt 2 to an Apple Display which has a FW800 port which my Digi 002 is connected to via a FW400->FW800 converter. Works perfectly.

Sorry for bringing the old topic but i am currently trying to connect Digi 003 to mac mini with thunderbolt to firewire 800 cable. Digi 003 is visible in the system (connected to thunderbolt port) however it is not visible in the audio section: only internal soundcard available. Mac mini late 2014, OS is 10.13 and PT is working just fine. It’s just a problem with Digi. Can you tell me which drivers you are/were using at the time? Thanks

I was/am using the latest 002/003 family drivers. I believe I was on 10.8.5 at the time, but I'm on 10.12.5 now and still rolling strong.

Not sure what you mean by "not visible in the audio section"...Have you tried holding down the "N" key when Pro Tools launches? Can you select the 003 there?

Hey Alex, thanks for taking interest in my case. No the PT does not "see" Digi003 as hardware . However The OS does recognize 003 connected thru Firewire . Guess I have to downgrade the OS to 10.12 release for verification. But if you were planning the OS upgrade soon please let of me know if it works for you. cheers.

Hello faithful Digi 002/003 users! Are any of you operating those units with any of the various Black Lion Audio mods? If so - have any of you had the opportunity to compare the sound quality (post-mod) of the 002/003 to one of the newer (stock/no mods) Thunderbolt interfaces (Apollo, Antelope, Apogee, etc...). I'm interested in going old school...upgrading with a BLA signature/XB clock mod. Basically overall sound quality is more important to me than channel count. Any insights are welcome. And thanks in advance!
