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.

Hi!
I found my latest findings so important that I quickly set up an account with SOS.
Because I also have an old Midisport 2x2 that didn't work at first. The 6.1.3 driver also started with an error under Windows 10 (Version 21H1 Build 19043.876). I then activated Windows XP compatibility mode for this file. Then he let himself be installed. It is also unfavorable if the path is too long or contains spaces. However, if you avoid these two pitfalls, the installation works and the Midisport 2x2 (not the anniversary version, but the old yellow one) is recognized as it used to be under Windows XP and can (finally again! :-) be addressed!

Hi Boehmer

Thank you, only just seen this but I may give that a go

Been taking a break from home recording for a few years now but hoping to get bcak in to it soon enough
