Has anyone seen an audio interface that utilizes USB 3.0 technology? All those that I have seen utilize USB 2.0, which is significantly slower than USB 3.0. I called M-Audio to find out if they made one, and was told by Tech Support that M-Audio only manufactured USB 2.0 interfaces, and also that he had not seen a USB 3.0 interface among their competitors. He also stated that firewire is on the way out, and that its performance gain over USB 2.0 was not signficant.
Wikipedia states that USB 3.0 is faster than firewire, but that firewire is faster than USB 2.0. That should indicates that a audio interface based on USB 3.0 would have better performance than firewire and USB 2.0. On the other hand, it may be that USB 2.0 is fast enough that the speed increase of USB 3.0 would not provide any further benefit. Can anyone provide further input?
I am asking this because I want to replace my Tascom USB-122 with an interface that works with my laptop, which has both a USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 port.
