Question: Will using a USB to Thunderbolt adapter cause latency issues?
I've got a Tascam US-1800 USB audio interface that I use with Logic Pro X on my Mac Mini, and generally speaking everything works fine. I'm considering an upgrade to a MacBook Pro, but there are only Thunderbolt ports on the newer models. I know I can connect using a USB to Thunderbolt/USB C adapter, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this and if so, have you noticed any issues with recording? Specifically latency, but I'm interested in any feedback about that setup.
I'd also be curious if anyone has done this via a docking station as opposed to just a cable adapter. I'd prefer to not have to purchase additional recording hardware if I can help it. I'm just a hobbyist, not a professional engineer, so my budget is limited. Any insight here would be appreciated.
