Using Mix8/Faderpanel and RX12 at the same time on a nomad

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I have this thought: How about how simultaneously use the rx12 and mix8 connected to the nomad. I've found an old thread but it didn't go deep. I know that there's the nomad touch and some special kind of usb-hub solution that is made to do achieve what I want but I don't want to invest into nomad touch right now.

 

Here comes my low-budget work around idea: A manual usb switch to be able to use the automatic frequency function auto pick first at the beginning of the day and then switch to to the mix8 afterwards. I haven't tried it yet and don't know if it requires a restart of the nomad.

 

here's some cheap usb switch:

Has anyone tried that yet?

RX12 and Mix8 are old school serial not USB, with the Touch you need use a special USB cables (Converters from USB to serial).

But they do have usb a connectors, don't they? Do they have a special pin assignment?

Edit: this is what you're talking about, right?

I see, it's also mentioned here.

 

 

well, that shouldn't hold me back as long the usb switch is a proper switch and not some kind of usb hub...
