Push and USB hubs?

Post by Jbvdb » Wed Oct 26, 2016 12:40 am

I hear this may not work?
Can any one disprove this for me before I go and make costly mistake s on my own?
Thanks

Powered USB hubs totally works for the Push 1 and other gear that needs power, but then other gear might not get enough power. Don't run the audio interface on the same connector and expect that to work out. It might but don't rely on this.
Unpowered may work even with the Push power supply active. Just make sure you get a good hub in either case. Read reviews.

Used both Push MK1/2 through a powered hub along with half a dozen other devices. Never an issue.

Ditto, always use a USB hub in my studio and never had a single issue with Push 1 or 2. Plugable brand, before anyone asks :)

Using anker ah221, i think with no issues. The hub also takes my focusrite 2i4 with no noticeable issues but i keep them seperate anyway.
