usb extender

Post by condordontsurf » Thu Dec 05, 2019 9:35 pm

Does anybody use a usb extender for the camera? I know after a certain point on cable length, USB signal can degrade. I have my computer on wheels and like to keep it to the right of me to play songs, and tweak sounds.

Some years ago I have tried to put an USB-hub between the camera and my computer. This was working somehow up to the day where I found myself with a black setup screen, and it took me a hard time to get rid of this.

Have you thought to hook another screen and a wireless keyboard/mouse to your computer and use them for controlling your DAW?

The extender that I was using did actually work, but like a lot of stuff in aerodrums it can be hard to pinpoint issues and variances.

I do have a wireless mouse and keyboard, but trying to keep my setup as simple as possible to give me flexibility on moving equipment around my room.

We often use USB extension cables when demo'ing Aerodrums at trade shows and haven't encountered any issues.

However, as was the case for Wolfgang and some other users, plugging the camera into a USB hub causes an issue with the colour camera feed that appears during the setup screens.
