    Default MBP express card slot power LPD8

    Hey guys

    So I've got a MBP, the last ones before the unibodies came out.

    It's only got 2 USB ports. I'm really liking the look of LPD8 to control the fx and for beat juggling but i can't be dealing with a usb hub with an external power cable. too many cables!!!!

    Would an express card usb adapter power my AK1? or Both the controllers? Or is there a hub without the need for an adapter?

    Also, it's cool to run two controllers on traktor pro 1.1.2? Or do I need to uprgade to 1.2?

    I've had a look on the other threads but can't quite work it out?

    Cheers in advance

    yes .. i have a 4 port expresscard slot .. it has an m-audio prokeys 88, a digital tv tuner, a wacom pad and upto 2 iphones hooked up to it (via another hub). all powered .. no problems.

    multiple controllers work fine in 1.1.x

    Ok cool

    What on a Macbook Pro though yeah? Might be different on a PC. Only i noticed this while googling the answer. I know they're talking about firewire but just wanted to check.

    @Lukas, what brand/type you have?
    I tried to find one with more than 2 USB ports, but it didn't have luck yet...

    i think that there are a couple .. actually i think most companies that offer a 2 port also offer a 4 port. i ended up buying a 4port from harma.
