Isn’t that the whole idea with USB? Well, it a little more to it than that but a big “selling point” is that you don’t need to restart your computer like in the 80ies. Most other programs I know of are capable of hot swapping USB devices without you having to restart the program. I have a USB MIDI keyboard that every now and then decide to not wake up like all the other USB devices and I’m getting kinda tired of it all, when I’ve loaded some project and I have to restart Cubase just to reload the freaking USB keyboard in 2011. No panic but I could do without that maneuver.
Perfect for 6.5, isn’t it?
