MISSING FILES / NOT WORKING
this page is just for archiving links to the pertinent details/files .. as it stands there is another file/application needed to make this work that i do not presently have a copy of and hes been removed from the mackie websiite for the last 4 years..i may never find a copy of it.
originally announced on the mackie site:
http://web.archive.org/web/20100409110439/http://www.mackie.com/enews/2010/04/free_pro_tools_m-powered_8_com.html


ATTENTION!
THIS HARDWARE / OS / SOFTWARE COMBO IS REPORTED NOT TO WORK WITH WINDOWS 7 or 8!!!!

from the pdf:

reading the text from the pdf (above image) it seems that this requires a special fixed version of pro tools m-powered 8 which had to be obtained from mackie... and that it is the driver/fixed app combination that allows it to work..
i will try to test this to make sure that this is the case..

but i will include the driver files here just in case.

MACKIE OFFERS HIGH-QUALITY FRONT END SOLUTIONS FOR PRO TOOLS 9

Great news! Mackie recording interfaces are now more compatible than ever before,

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past week, you are likely aware of Avid’s latest Pro Tools announcement. Namely that their latest software release, Pro Tools 9, is now open to all interfaces that use ASIO or Core Audio drivers.

This is big news. Big, big news.

In addition to the wide breadth of DAW compatibility Mackie already offers, this means that you can also now plug any ASIO / Core Audio Mackie interface right into Pro Tools 9 and get straight to work. No longer are you obligated to use proprietary interfaces. Instead, you can use Mackie’s proven high-quality preamps and converters alongside user-friendly feature sets to bring your recordings to new level – and you can do it on your recording platform of choice.

Mackie is no stranger to working with a huge variety of DAWs, even Pro Tools. After all, we kicked our relationship off over a decade ago with HUI – the world’s first control surface to function with the world’s most popular DAW. Then, our popular Onyx-i Series mixers changed the face of the industry last year, being the first ever third party devices to work with Pro Tools M-Powered 8. We created the driver that let you work how you wanted and we are very proud of that. Of course, support for this combination will continue, but with the announcement of an open-ended Pro Tools platform, there is now a wide range of options that offer the high-quality preamps, converters and innovative features that set Mackie apart from the pack.

Blackjack-3qtr-R-reflected The new Onyx Blackjack 2x2 USB Recording Interface is the perfect desktop interface for your favorite DAW. Ultra-compact and featuring our renowned Onyx mic preamps and high-quality AD/DA converters, the Onyx Blackjack is a great option from simple home studio to rugged mobile recording.


 

Blackbird_front_slantNeed more inputs and expandability? The Onyx Blackbird 16x16 FireWire Recording Interface takes things a step further. Eight boutique Onyx preamps and expandability via ADAT and Word Clock offer deeper integration into an existing digital setup or a powerful start that grows along with your studio needs.

©Earl Harper Our flagship Onyx-i Series FireWire Production Mixers are unrivaled in the market, delivering the power, performance and FireWire flexibility needed for your main production console. In fact, the Onyx 1640i delivers something that no other mixer in this class can do: the ability to not only send 16 discrete inputs into your DAW, but to bring up to 16 signals right back into the channel strips for a true tape-style mixdown. Mackie Onyx-i mixers are unique, offering a tactile tracking and mixing solution with the state-of-the-art front end, premium EQ and AD/DA converters and FireWire routing possibilities you’ve been waiting for.

MCU-Pro-Alt3Qtr But the offerings do not stop there. Mackie’s powerful control surfaces, the MCU Pro and Extender Pro offer customizable, hands-on control over your DAW. The motorized faders and recallable v-pots offer tactile control that is nothing short of amazing. And if you are a Mac user, you can plug in our popular ProFX Series Compact Effects Mixers at your next gig and record the whole thing into PT9.

So, as you can see, Mackie recording interfaces are now more compatible than ever. Avid has certainly opened the door, letting you choose both the hardware the software that is right for you. Don’t waste this opportunity. Choose the audio interface that delivers industry-leading quality, sound and innovative features that make your life easier…all at a price you can afford.

really was hoping that someone would eventually share this file who had it -  i guess out of all the users that did get it - not one person felt it right to share the driver with the other people who could have bought the onyx purely for m-powered which i did.. and got totally screwed on this because i had no idea they revoked the driver until after i purchased it..
swore i would never support mackie again after this fiasco!!
