max + usb hub / troubleshooting

  • since my mbp has only two ports, i got a powered 4-port hub a few months ago to handle three devices [arc2, 128, apogee interface].

    i usually plug the audio i/o directly into one port and the monomes, thru the hub, into the other port...but i've tried every possible configuration and none work. i'm reasonably sure the individual machines and cables are functional because each device works fine when plugged directly into the laptop

    either the max patches i'm attempting to use or the hub are problematic but i dont understand why...its annoying and slightly embarassing to admit that i cant figure this out

    any ideas are welcome :)

  • i've used all of these with a hub-- it sounds like your hub may be bad. the computer will see no difference between a hub and direct connected grid.
