Topic: USB cable length limit for MADIface XT?
We're getting dropouts and glitchy noises over time on a 2012 Mac Pro with decent specs despite using a 2048sample buffer with a XT. Weirdly some of the clicks are only audible when monitoring through Reaper, not on playback.
Are some USB 2.0 ports better than others on a cheese grater Mac for 16 channels at 96/24?
The other potential culprit is a USB 3.0 extender which we're currently using to keep the Mac out of the control room. Is this not recommended for USB 2 as well as 3? And if we abandoned the extender is there a limit to usb cable length?
