What USB extension cable should I use? [SOLVED: USB AUDIO RUN SHOULD BE MAX 15', therefore use a USB CABLE SHORTER THAN 15']
Sound & Tech Team
For our setup we're using USB>RJ45 which plugs into a network socket, then we go back out another Network socket, convert to USB then back into the Soundboard. Till this Sunday it had been working well, but had all sorts of dropouts today. Theoretically it sould work up to 180ft.
I can't see to post links here but you can google " USB2.0 Extender Over RJ45 + 4-Port Hub (up to 60M)" to see what we use.
Hi Adam, we aren't able to test this setup since we don't have the components of it, so I'm not able to guarantee that it works. We really recommend USB cables being 15 feet or less. Otherwise there will be dropouts or bad connection. It's best to have your device running Prime on stage, going to your interface, then running XLR cables or 1/4" cables back to your soundboard. Thanks!
