Default Can you please explain why there is no updated Mbox 3 Pro driver for Windows 10?

The last driver version is from 2014 and there are many reports of buggy behavior with Windows 10.


Why have the drivers not been updated in almost 10 years?


If there is an actual good explanation for this I will be satisfied, but right now it looks like you are simply abandoning customers who as a result will stay clear of any of your current and future products.

Great.


Guess I can be confident in my view that AVID products are a hard pass.


Just as a comparison, the latest MOTU driver for their similarly aged products was released on Sept. 28, 2022 and includes support for Windows 11.

Yes, it's been discussed a few times here. But the short answer is Avid gave up on it long before it was end of life.
