    Hi folks.

    I am considering looking to pick up a couple of F1s and was just wondering, are these only for stem decks or can they be used for triggering samples.

    Currently i have an S4 Mk3, and yes i know i can use stem decks, i'm just looking to make my setup a bit more creative.

    Any info greatly appreciated.

    Seeing as these units are USB powered does anyone have a specific USB hub that they would recommend in conjunction with the S4 Mkiii.

    My Dell XPS only has 2 USB3 ports and one C port, one of them tied up with the S4 and my external SSD using the C port.

    Would just like to ensure that i get something reliable.

    Thanks for looking.

    Use the port on the back of the S4 MK3

    I would but I'm considering getting 2 F1s, unless I get a USB splitter cable which might work..

    The fact that the MK3 has to plug into one of those ports
