1 last time: POWERED USB HUB

I remember this thread that someone had this hub they got on AMAZON.

I can't remember the name of it and searching is not yielding results.

So back to the drawing board.

Ideas recommendations or do you remember the thread?

It had to do with a hub and I think Studiomux maybe?

Appreciate it.

  • Don't know re Studiomux
    but I had searched here and elsewhere about hubs before and I got a couple of the Vantec ones.

    4-Port Hub + 3 Smart Charging Port
    https://www.amazon.com/Vantec-Aluminum-10-Port-Adapter-UGT-AH100U3/dp/B00J8LW04Q?th=1

    They have some other sizes, but make sure it is a 2.0A one if you want to charge an iPad.

    Others have here recommended Anker but I simply saw them in person and preferred the aluminum Vantec over the plastic Anker.

  • It was me that made that last recommendation and the hub was by Apanage.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FVT8PS6/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_EQGWCbPC14APG

    That's the UK store and the white model (but it's available from any Apple store and in multiple colours) but it's been faultless for me.

    I have a more powerful ANKER hub which performs worse as it doesn't trickle charge and provide data connectivity at the same time.

    I have 4/5 iOS devices permanently hooked up to Ableton via Studiomux and I use the fast charge sockets on a regular basis too but tend only to do that with low power devices like my gen 1 pencil or my Wacom tablet.

    If your desktop machine is Windows you need to ensure that your properly optimised as little things can catch you out like auto power down of USB devices.

    This old Focusrite guide covers all the important stuff.

    I will check the brand

    I need more ports one of my considerations was the Elektron hub.

    @RUST( i )K I use an Anker 7-port hub, It was relatively cheap and has worked fine for all the punishment I have put it through. Food for thought.

    EDIT: just fully read the response above. Never mind......

    I bought it in 2016, so there may be a more current or comparable model.

  • Beware of noises, because of the power supply of the USB hub!

    I have my steinberg ur22 powered from my usb hub.
    When my usb hub is powered by the included power adapter i hear a high frequency noise IN MY RECORDINGS!

    First i thought my HW synth or the steinberg or the cable had an issue.
    But after some trial and error i found out unplugging the power from USB hub removes the noise.

    My quick fix: during sampling I just unplug power from my usb hub (and the hub drains power from my ipad).

    What a crazy coincidence - I'm needing to buy a powered USB hub too, and I was remembering today the post about several iOS devices plugged into Studiomux... and I thought to myself - it was probably @jonmoore moore as he's posted in the recent studiomux thread - so when I got on the forum tonight I was gonna search for jonmoore and find his post with a link...

    Thanks for saving me the hard work :wink:

    Great minds eh!

    ....

    My Apanage hub is being delivered tomorrow so I can report how well it works. I’m really hoping it will usefully charge the iOS devices whilst they are being used and connected to my Mac.

  • Do these have a micro C connection to connect to the camera connection kit?

    Is there a USB hub that people are recommending for connecting to a camera connection kit? Mine is OK but it’s like eight years old at this point

  • The one I have just ordered does not have USB C.

    I did see some USB C hubs on Amazon. I actually bought one for my daughters new iPad Pro 11 at Christmas. I can have a look and see if I can find the link if you like. It was about £50

    The one I was recommending does connect via the CCK 3. I thought that was the only way to power and have a hub at the same time.

  • This was the USB-C one I got for my daughter's iPad Pro 11 - I don't think she's had any problems with it

  • Sorry, I didn’t mean to say USB c. I meant micro USB.

    I do not have one of the new iPad pros and I’m still connecting with a CCK.

    OK, that looks like it has a regular USB connector on the top. Cool. So it does not use mini USB. Am I correct?

    Yes the hub part, the usb port that goes to the iPad is actually a usb 3 that goes to the CCK. Then you run a regular usb to lightening cable from the 2A out to the slot on the CCK.

    Pretty cool I think, this is all run off two plugs. The usb hub powers the
    iPad
    Akai
    Focusrite 2i2
    And the Nemesis Delay (via BirdCord)

    The Sirin needs its own plug.

    I have the little usb extension that you see sticking out to connect other things that are not part of the portable rig, midi sequence them via the iAd of course.

    How is that little Moog Tuaurus re do?
    Thanks by the way

    The Sirin and Minitaur, as far as I can tell, just have different paint jobs and oscs.
    Imho, sweet little mono synths if you love that classic subtractive sound. There are a number of important under the hood features, like it does have digital preset management and other things you can access via the glide button which acts as a shift or thru midi ccs. Alt functions I use a lot, other lfo types, velocity, fine tune, change decay release modes.

  • edited April 28

    @Multicellular I recently (finally) got the MyVolts Ripcord DC to USB cables from their long delayed Kickstarter campaign. Minitaur and probably Sirin use a 12v cord. I've tried the 12v cable with my TG33, Minitaur, and Blofeld. Works great. It might make your rig be even more portable and USB powered.

    I have a couple more cables on order because it beats using super short manufacturer cables and limited outlets I have available. Plus you can use a USB extension cable to make them even longer.
