Best USB hub for live performances?
I've got a live set up with 4 midi controllers (Akai APC40, MPD18, novation Launch Control and Launch Control XL). Since my laptop only have 2 USB ports (and the first one is used by the audio interface), I have to use a powered USB hub.
I had some troubles using midi in my setup (mostly drivers issues), but today I've got a new one: one USB port on my 4 ports hub crashes from time to time. My 10 euros hub seems to struggle with huge amount of ascending and descending midi messages... Obviously it's very irritating when it happens in the middle of a live set.
So my question is, do you a have a model of at least 4 ports that you know works well when receiving a lot of data?
