Topic: Is longer USB cable possible for Fireface UFX II USB 2

I’m thinking about buying this interface to use in class compliant mode with my iPad Pro and the Total Mix app, but I would need 3 meters from my iPad to the interface in my rack, if I buy a third party 3m USB cable will it work with the RME Fireface UFX II USB 2? Thanks

With USB2 5m should be within the specs.
I am using a 5m USB3 cable (3x shielded Lindy quality cable) without any issues.

Thanks Ramses. So should I get that cable with the resistors on the ends .. or does it not matter in this application? I checked out Lindy cables .. but I’m in the USA, any other quality brands I should check out? Thanks again.

You need a USB-C to USB-B cable, USB 2, and yes that should work in 3 meters length.
