Default Re: Pleasant surprise with Mbox 2 Pro

I've found most interfaces keep working on newer Windows OS's without new drivers.. I don't think MS have changed the driver stack a whole lot since Win 7.

I'm still using an old ProFire 2626 on Win 11 with Win 8 drivers and when I had a Project Mix IO it was working on Win 10 with Win 7 drivers.

Yes! I'm using an ancient Frontier Designs AlphaTrack HUI control surface on Windows 10/11. As I recall, I installed the Win 7 era drivers in compatibility mode. Works.
