USB out of bandwidth

Post by jeff cox » Sat Jul 09, 2011 1:54 pm

Hi All,

A bit of an off topic, but I was hoping someone my be able to shed some light on this for me.

I recently purchased some new pieces of equipment and most of them have USB interfaces, so when I connected them all and tried to use Ableton I got an 'USB out of bandwidth' error message.

Is there any way of remedying this? would installing a USB pci card give me more bandwidth?

I would say it most likely would. Try changing up ports a bit. USB devices share ports in pairs so maybe two devices need to be on seperate pairs. The unfortunate thing is it is hard to tell which ports are shared.
