Presonus1818VSL Users: Recommend the best USB hub?

Post by trupro » Thu Aug 01, 2013 12:49 pm

Now with an iPad 4, i get much better performance. Latency greatly reduced and rarely disconnects.

However, i am using a bootleg fakey CCK/Hub solution, and so the presonus often has to be reset several times to get it to see the iPad and light up the blue LED. Once it is working, i am still getting the repeated 'this device not supported' error message on the iPad screen.

(this combo dockConnecter/USB hub is the one recommended in a youtube video where the user has this exact usb hub successfully. The dedicated output of this cheap device is an apple-style dock connecter. Now with the iPad 4, i pop a lightning coverter on it and viola, success...sort of)

Reading RIM's comments as well as usuer advice, it seems a proper powered USB hub is in order, and i may
have to spring for the REAL apple CCK.

Can users having awesome success recommend their go-to powered USB hub?

Thanks!

ah yes, i see now so i will get a real cck i guess...

Please let us know if you try this same combo with the Presonus as well (and whether the results are better with
or without powered hub)

thanks man! :)
