    Default Powered USB hubs for connecting an audio interface to an RPi

    Yo. So my aunt just handed me a Raspberry Pi, naturally the first thing that came into my head was "I gotta get xwax running on this".

    This means I need to connect a big power hungry USB audio interface to it- and my interface doesn't have a port to connect a power supply to. I figure the only solution is a powered USB hub, something I know nothing about. Can anyone offer me some tips or recommend me a powered USB hub that would be suitable for use with an audio interface?

    Cheers guys!

    Saw this one get mentioned a lot in the last thread on hubs:

    The MM-1 does have the advantage of being multi-TT though.

    See this is something I need to know- what exactly does multi-TT mean and what impact does this have?

    I think the main advantage is that any USB 1.0/1.1 devices will usually bottleneck a typical single-TT hub, whereas the multi-TT hub does not get bottlenecked.

    Should be fine if every device connected is 2.0 or newer.
