Topic: Recommendation for a UK USB Card for Fireface UFXII
I just got hold of a FF UFXII. The performance is pretty poor (I've upgraded from a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24, which was Firewire) and I'm pretty sure it's down to USB issues (I've applied the 'mouse pointer trails' fix which has made the unit at least usable, albeit with 2048 buffer size, which isn't really what I wanted when I shelled out, to be honest.
So, I'm going through the forums, digging around for info, and I'm going to get a USB card to hopefully prevent any congestion (I've made sure I've stopped Windows 10 from turning off USB power, and have prioritised background tasks etc etc.) It's a relatively new machine, only a couple of years old, with an intel x299 MOBO with an intel i7 processor (I'll happily supply any further info if it's helpful.)
I'm therefore wondering about running the UFX from a dedicated USB 2 card (I know there are problems with USB 3 from my reading). I'm in the UK, could anyone recommend something that will work and I can get hold of relatively easily?
Thanks for any help/tips.
