You need to use usb-a cable and not usb-c when using a hub.
You won’t be able to run data and charge using usb-c through a usb-hub. I tried 7 usb-c hubs and none of them worked.
You will then have to use a separate charger, but your external drives and mixon 8 will work fine, there is no issue or incompatibility in using usb-a, apart from not being able to charge with the same cable, works like a charm.
There is no way to use the same SSD on both iPad and Macbook, thats how usb hard drives work, you have to plug them in on one device at a time
Functions, like when accessing the library will work on both devices if the source on the channel is selected. For example if Deck 3 and 4 are switched to USB-2, and Deck 1 and 2 are switched on USB-1, when scrolling through library it will scroll on both but obviously whichever load button you press it will load the appropriate track to the correct deck, so its not like it will load a track on both devices. Hope that makes sense.
What you can also do, is use Ableton Link. This way both devices, iPad and Macbook are synced, in case you wanna mix songs between the devices.
I connected via usb C (USB A on Mixon 8 pro) and it is reading the ssd and charging the I pad but Mixon 8 pro is not mapping with djay pro. Nothing.
What’s that blue peripheral you mentioned I didn’t see.
I pad connected via USB A maps fine. I was trying through the USB IOS. The USB IOS connects directly to iPad but we cannot connect external ssd.
I still don’t see that blue peripheral sign. Are these green chroma cables I see you have both usb B and USB C IOS connected.
I used supplied usb cable. Just got mixon 8 today. Everything was plug and play without updating firmware. While updating the firm ware everything went well and it indicated firmware update completed, the last step where it is supposed to reboot itself did not happen and the update progress also did not appear on jog wheels, instead very dim hardly noticeable light while updating firmware. I hope it updated firm ware. Is there a way to confirm the latest firmware.
Appreciate all your support and guidance!
If you want to use the USB hub you need to connect the the USB “Type B” socket on the back of the unit in the USB A section and the switch moved to this side. The Hub will not work connected to the USB “Type C” socket.
Use the USB “Type C” socket if you want to connect direct to the Mixon 8 without the hub and need for an external charger.
In the picture I provided, I have both a USB-C to C cable connected to the Mixon 8 and a USB-B to A cable. However, I only have one of them connected to the iPad at a time. USB-B to A if I want to use the USB Hub or USB-C to C if I want to connect direct.
As for the firmware, I had this same issue the first time I did it. Please reread the update instructions CAREFULLY and rerun the firmware update process. Make sure you see the confirmation on the jog wheels.
