Topic: FFUC needs a 10 foot USB 2.0 cable HELP!!!
Hi, so i have a FFUC and the standard 6 foot cable is just about 2 feet short of my rack and I was wondering... if I could use a 10 foot usb 2.0 cable?
Thinking I could solve this myself... I went to my local computer store yesterday and purchased a standard 10 foot USB 2.0 cable... brought it home and hooked it all up. I powered on my MacPro and tried to play itunes and logic 9 for a sound check and It was unbelievable how bad it was. Cracks and pops are an understatement! So, I called Sweetwater where I purchased the FFUC from and the sales engineer told me it should work. So, I went back to the electronic store and got a new cable thinking the first on was defective... Well, needless to say the 2nd one works, but now I'm worried if my ears are playing tricks on me and the sound quality in not as wih the 6 foot cable... it sound about the same but I don't know now... I was hoping to get a tech on here who could help me out! I just want this to work to the best of it's potential, and if that means moving my studio around then so be it... but if I can avoid that with the 10 foot cable I would LOVE TO!
I guess I have 3 questions about this
1. Am I going to lose sonic quality with the 10 foot cable vs standard 6 foot?
2. What about latency issues? the reason I got the FFUC is for low latency... I don't want to lose that!
3. Does RME have a solution?
