    Question MacBook + RME Fireface UCX setup

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi all,
    I am a jazz singer and I have decided it's time for me to start recording on my own.
    I am going to buy a Fireface UCX soon and I have a 2017 MacBook (not pro).
    The issue is the MacBook has only 1 USB-C port which is used for charging and USB 3.1 connections. So if I plug the Fireface into the mac directly I will have no way to charge the mac. So I figured I should connect both mac and Fireface into some docking station or hub of some sorts. But there are so many models... assuming I am willing to invest up to 400 $ in the docking station because I do want to get a good setup, what should I look for? What are good brands to check out?

    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance and happy recording to all :-)

    Hi,
    I don't see any model of Fireface UCX that isn't USB 2.0/Firewire so connecting directly isn't an option either way.

    It looks like this will break out to USB 2.0, USB-C (which you can use for charging the macbook), HDMI + card reader,
