Can we use an USB-HUB with our EME for using different USB Devices?

Hi!

I would like to know if USB-HUB is supported by EME for using two different (or more) devices at the same time.

It would be great to use Novation Launchpad to change patterns and also a usb keyboard to write notes and (why not?) a LaunchControl XL to change other parameters.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Rafa

Hi rotadsr!

We have tested with a couple USB hubs with no success. We don't discard to work on this in the future.

Additional consideration, the power going to the USB devices connected to EME comes from the +5V bus, so if you use USB powered devices, all those devices will be hanging from +5V power rail.

Using powered USB-Hubs (when allowed) would not increase this power comsumption?

If the hub is powered, consumption should hang from the hub. But I'm not sure yet if it is possible to use a hub.

We will do some tests.
