A little more $$$ than I initially spec'd but damn, that does the job.

Now what I really want is a Thunderbolt hub for when devices there come out.

Wow, the last two posted are exactly what I think everyone's looking for...don't know if I'm in the mood to drop ~$400 on something like that though...

I just bought the 14 port version. I liked the front access, even though the other unit had 16 ports, and a sleeker look.

Yes, they are hideously expensive, but I have been looking so long for something like this, that I couldn't resist.


Now guys, how about a rackmount, multiport cable TV splitter and/or amplifier?

Yep, one more vote for a USB/FW hub!
10/6 would be great.
Just a box will do!

FH600 - 6-Port FireWire HUB & Amazon.com: Satechi 12 Port USB Hub with Power Adapter & 2 Control Switches: Electronics will do the job for me. I's sign up for a combi 19" solution but that should not last long :-)

This thread has been necroed so many times, but what a gaping hole in our kits! Personallly, i keep adding on usb midi devices. The number of ports i need only ever goes up. The Dlink staples store junk ive bean leaning heavily on now needs to be replugged very often to reconnect.

Where is the resonable priced heavy duty usb hub just for musicians? It is either sub $50 crap or 400+ industrial grade overkill. The music shops of the world are so full of audiomidi devices connecting and powering from USB. Ask the same music shop for a usb hub, and they direct you to walmerde or staples. Whats up with that? There should be stageworthy usb hubs right beside the midi interfaces.

USB is the new midiport. You can buy a huge rackmount midi interface, but where is the USB hub to sit beside it?

Rackmount Data-port i/O product is Still Needed

Things are ever changing yet I cannot believe that one music/pro audio or related fields (video guys & gals??) have yet to build modular rack mountable hubs, bays, routers -- whatever for non-audio signals that we use day in/day out.

The number of media content creators and engineers, computer tech/IT guys and even "casual" geeks can easily need to connect 6 or more USB 2/3 devices to their laptops or desk tops. Everything from printers to high-end A/D and D/A converters share USB ports of various flavors.

Why doesn't someone like Middle Atlantic, Switchcraft, or even Avid, Radial or Sweetwater make some 19" rackmount power supply box, sort of like the 500 series "lunchbox" concept with 4 USB 3.0/2.0 ports built in and then slots for various modules for different data I/O ports, routers, hubs, etc. For example, you could have one module for say video editors -- HDMI, Thunderbolt, Fiberwire, Firevire, one for computer techs who need legacy ports, like SCSI, VGA, etc., audio pros, media home entertainment, etc.

Broad-level demand is there. The "basic" rack itself should not be more than $100, tops and then the modules could go for $15 (say 6 more USB ports) to hundreds of dollars for the more esoteric or niche I/O's.

I found this today... and am going to bounce this thread to the top (Sorry). I was searching for quite some time. Has anyone used one? It's reasonably priced at $159.00.

This does look great and uses newer USB ports. It’s a shame all the ports are front facing as I would rather have all the ports were on the back so it leaves a cleaner look. However I think if you pair it with a brush rack then you could have the cables neatly coming through the brush rack and into the usb rack

I use a brush panel with my ethernet switches (I run a Dante network) and it works fine.

I don't want to have to hunt around in the back of the rack just to plug in an iLok.
