I have a 2011 Macbook Pro and I need 4 USB ins for midi controllers and sound card some of which are bus-powered.

Is it worth the bulk and trial and error of trying an Expresscard? Would a powered USB hub be the exact same or would this be additional throughput on USB?

I have an older Apiotek USB express card which worked on my 2007 MBP. I presume I am right in assuming that this card is obsolete because it just freezes my current lappy when I insert it.
QUOTE Thanks
