Multiple USB mics via CCK and USB hub?

Post by TorgoGuy » Mon Sep 30, 2013 11:40 am

I suspect this may be a stupid question, but that's never stopped me before:

Let's say I have a USB mic that works just fine individually via the camera connection kit. Can I just connect a powered USB hub and hook up 2 (or 3 or 4) of these same mics into it and have Auria record each of these mics simultaneously as separate tracks? If so, I think Auria is exactly what I need!

Thanks in advance, guys!

(I tried searching to see if this has been asked before, but my Search-Fu seems to be weak today).

This doesn't work currently, and it's really up to Apple to implement this. Auria simply uses whatever audio devices iOS supports, and right now it only supports one audio and one midi device at once.

You can however use a USB mic and a USB controller into a powered USB hub.
I use both a Blue Yeti, and an Akai EWI USB into a Belkin powered USB hub into a CCK. The Blue Yeti has a headphone jack so it acts like an audio interface. Other USB mics may not react in the same way though.
