Thanks to eagle eyed community member Brett Parker for spotting that Avid have released Yosemite compatible drivers for the Mbox3 family of Avid Interfaces.
Lets hope that this points to Yosemite support for Pro Tools 11 coming along very soon.
Avid are running a promo of buy Pro Tools 11 and get an Mbox for $100, that’s 80% off the Mbox. In their words;
“The Pro Tools + Mbox bundle gives you the best of both worlds—the most advanced and trusted music creation and audio production software on the planet, and a professional-grade, portable hardware interface that delivers best-in-class sound quality and performance. Get everything you need to create music and audio on your Mac or PC—all in one bundle that offers incredible value.”
The third-generation Avid Pro Tools Mbox Mini offers fully portable Pro Tools production power like never before. This small-format interface features two simultaneous inputs and outputs, including a single pristine microphone preamp accompanied by incredible conversion. Just as they did with its big brother, the full-sized Pro Tools Mbox, Avid built the ultra-portable Pro Tools Mbox Mini with the painstaking precision that allows it to be fully USB bus powered, so you can take advantage of its incredible recording quality anywhere. New drivers also make the Pro Tools Mbox Mini fully compatible with most audio software. And because it comes with Pro Tools Express DAW software, you’ll be ready to create music right out of the box with the Avid Pro Tools Mbox with Pro Tools Express!
It’s a great way to get started with Pro Tools, you can do a lot wth Pro Tools Express and then when you are ready you can buy the Pro Tools 11 software and know its going to work with Avid’s Mbox Mini.
Russ shows how a band with just a couple of mics can make a mono recording sound big. All with the FREE stuff in Pro Tools.
An updated Mac driver (v1.1.5) for the Mbox Pro (3rd gen) is now available.
Please see the Mbox Pro Drivers page for info & download.
An updated driver (v10.3.3) for Mac OS X is now available for Mbox 2 USB Family devices.
