    After using the S4 for a while I am finding the extra USB port it has handy. It would be brilliant if Maschine had a built in hub so you could plug in things like the Jam, Hard drive etc. This would be a great feature for laptop users who do not have many ports especially like the basic MacBooks that have one.

    Agreed. IMO, reduce unnecessary components to bring down cost, increase sales and fuel the ongoing dev of the software. I don't know about other people, but I've gone through a lot of USB hubs over the years from various brands, I'd rather treat reduce the number of things that can go wrong.

    Id find it handy if all the Controllers were bluetooth and had rechargeable batteries inside that lasted months lol
