Hi all, I know this may sound a odd thing to do. I use the MCX standalone or with my preferred app. I recently bought a DS1 as an alternative setup: Leave the house with just the DS1 if DVS is possible on location - e.g. leave the big MCX at home. My DJ set is 4 meters away from my iMac. Serato is on the iMac (i hardly use it)
Can someone fill me in: is it SAFE to plug the DS1 usb in the MCX’s hub?
I have seen details of what is good, and what uses too much power for this port. But i don’t know where i saw that info. I think FB a long time ago. I know it is not a good idea (read: bad) to use long USB cables in a pro audio scenario. But i just tried it, and i have it working : DS1 at the decks and Serato on iMac 4 mtrs USNB cables + hub (ahem, i won’t rely on this professionally, but can do it occasionally ‘for fun’ so it seems)
Why: i have 1 4 mtr usb ‘extension’ cable. If i would use this for the MCX, and use the MCX hub for the DS1, i think i should be able to configure Serato, so it uses the MCX as controller and DS1 as sound card ! right?
I haven’t bought the DVS Unlock for MCX. But with DS1 i don’t have to! See my point? But i’d really like to be sure if DS1 usb > MCX8000 usb hub is safe
Thank you in advance!
