Re: Usb cable

You need to be more specific what Digiface XYZ product you mean.
Some use usb2, some usb3. These two USB standards have different max supported cable lengths.

USB1.1 - ARC USB (being delivered with 1,8m cable), max length 18m
USB2 - Digiface USB, max cable length 5m
USB3 - Digiface AVB+Dante, max cable length 3m

What cable length do you need ?
BTW .. this has been discussed already in this forum, maybe a extended forum search helps or via google.

Search for "MC" Matthias Carstens and maybe the terms "USB" and maybe smth like "extension".

Re: Usb cable

If you have both audio interfaces connected you need to disable one of them for the ARC USB, otherwise you get this kind of flickering - collision of two devices. See TM FX Options ARC.
