large usb hub?

does anyone know of any large usb hubs? I mean like with 20 inputs or something like that. I know you can link many together, but surely someone makes one large one?

thanks

lol

the best looking option I have found is this:

http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProdu...duct_Id=198548

it is a seven port hub, but made specifially so you can stack them physically on top of each other to get more ports. It seems to say it is mac only, which strikes mea as abit weird for a hub.

I am still looking for the mother of all hubs.

I need to plug in at least

2 midi interfaces
1 usb keyboard
1 usb graphics tablet
1 usb trackball
2 iloks
1 emagic key
1 steinberg key
1 controller keyboard
1 akai mpc sample pad thingy
1 usb card reader
1 ipod
1 usb pen drive
1 usb bluetooth thingy (I don't really use it though)
1 usb printer/scanner

etc etc, so thats 16 things just off the top of my head..

If you read the description a little closer it supports both pc and mac

• System Requirements: For PC Users: Pentium® processor-based computer with USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 port available, Windows® 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP
• For Mac Users: Supports high-speed (480Mbps) mode on Apple® computers that are factory-equipped with USB 2.0-compliant ports; or on other Mac computers equipped with a USB 2.0 upgrade card.
• Mac OS X v10.2.7 (and above) also supports high-speed mode.

I've mailed Belkin a few times asking them to make a 19" rack device that is a USB 2 and FW 400/800 hub.
The only time they replied they said there wouldn't be enough interest.

I purchased two of these for using on two computers

USB 2.0 Hub, 13 Port, Ziotek, ZT1041413

Only 13 ports but they work great.

cyberguys has awesome sales too... I bought the second one for $20

Keep in mind, though, not everything works through a USB HUB.

I have an Presonus Audiobox USB interface. For some reason, it will not "pass" MIDI data through when connected to the HUB but works great when plugged directly into the computer

Cheers
