Problem with Novation Impulse 49 and Mac Pro

My fIrst post... I have a Mac Pro 6 core trash can, using PT 12.1, but the issue occurs with any DAW.

The Novation Impulse 49 stops sending midi data to whatever DAW I am using randomly, sometimes I can play 8 notes and it stops, other times I can make it through an entire song, but guaranteed that it will happen multiple times over an hour or 2. If I pull out the USB cable from the MP, and plug it back in, problem solved, at least for a few notes, or minutes.

The 4 USB ports on the MP do not seem to be the issue, as my Ilok2 works fine on any of the ports as do other peripherals. I've tried all 4 ports with the same result.

The issue does not occur when using my MBP which tells me it's not the cable.

Firmware is up to date

Do I need a powered USB2 hub to work with the MP? Is anyone else having the same or similar issue?
