Those were discussed earlier in the thread. I had been unsuccessful in getting one to work reliably with my 4x4, with regular BSODs on Win 10. However the one I used was bus powered; there are some where you can actually plug a PSU into the far end of the cable which, I suspect, may work better.

Nowadays I have a powered USB3 hub 5m at the far end (7m I think), with the MOTU Micro Lite (I mentioned I'd got to replace the 4x4), a Presonus Studiolive USB mixer, aa Roland SH-201 attached to it.
