    i am very, very, very, veeerrrry tight on cash. so here's my situations. i know a bunch of people who have USB large diaphram(sp?) mics. so i can get my hands on about 4 of them.

    now, my question is: Is it possible to plug all 4 into a USB hub and then plug them into the computer/laptop and have all of them like...work?

    i just want to get a half way decient live recording of a 4pc band.

    software i am using: sony acid music studio 6.0 (i got for free at a FRY's electronic sale)

    I think that you are going to have to try this out and tell us if it can be done.

    If they are powered by usb then it is unlikely that you will be able to use them on a hub.

    A usb hub is more for low powered devices like flash drives etc.

    More often the reverse. I frequently recommend that people with USB-powered devices use a powered hub to take the load off the computer's supply, especially if using a laptop.

    Whether more than one USB mic will work or not depends on the audio software being able to deal with multiple USB devices.

    Do you mean an externally powered hub ?
