    Default Do you unplug ?

    So the poll is about;

    Do you unplug your audio interface and controllers when you are using your computer for something else than producing or Djing ?

    Get a 10 port powered USB hub and you'll never have to unplug anything again.

    That's just what I've done though as I went for a cheep one it struggles to supply enough power for more than 6 USB buss powered devices which is fine for me as everything is plugged into my Mac Pro so just have my hdds plugged into the machine on there own port and for when I'm out and about I take my old 7 port hub with me and use my MacBook Pro

    Never ever unplug anything. I have a Macbook Pro for DJ'ing and is only used for that I have a flightcase for my DDJ SX with an intergated power strip and a powered USB hub. I use my iMac for everything else producing music, downloading, internet and gaming . Have a M-Audio firewire solo connected as soundcarl and use that as main sound too. I have my Guitar and mic always connected to the M-Audio and midi keyboard and Mashine always connected to my iMac. The M-Audio is roothed trough a line on my DDJ SX that is connected to my Event 20/20 studio monitors. Only time I ever disconnect anything is when I go out giging. I only need to dissconnect 3 cables and ready to go and at the club I only need to plug in the power and line out of the DDJ SX and power up and play.
    I don't see any reason why to unplug anything if your going to do something not music related on a computer.

    I use my MBP for all sorts of things, and my equipment hangs in the garage. So yes, I unplug when not using.
