    Angry CDJ 900 x DJM 800 x Serato - - USB Hub Latency Issue

    Hey DJTT Forum -

    New member here. I've been having a bit of trouble with my SL 1 connection to my CDJ 900's, thought someone on here might be able to help me out.

    So I normally mix with USB's but I came across a deal for an SL 1 at $60 and I couldn't pass it up. I use a 2012 MBP with this setup. Unfortunately, this notebook only has 2 USB ports and I need 3 to make this work.

    Bought a USB hub from Amazon. 4 ports and powered. I connect the Serato box directly to my notebook and both of the CDJ connections through the hub.

    What I've been noticing is a pretty shotty connection for the CDJs. They will work for a period of time, usually no more than 15 minutes before losing connection. They will continue to play, but on the screen it prompts me to select between Deck 1 and Deck 2.

    Now this is a huge pain to constantly deal with so I'm trying to troubleshoot the problem.

    Is this most likely being caused by the hub and its poor connection? Has anyone else had a similar problem? Any recommendations or solutions?

    Thanks in advance!

    USB cables (quality? thick? do they have ferrite choke? dont use those crappy for printers)
    USB ports on CDJ's (they are crap on Pioneer CDJ's)
