Focusrite Saffire pro 40 might not be compatible with the new 2018 MacBook Pros.

I'm using the OWC thunderbolt 3 dock and it worked fine with my 2011 and 2017 MacBook pros. I only had to use the thunderbolt dock with the 2017 because the 2011 had the ports. It doesn't work on my new i9 machine. I've called focusrite and they say they can only guarantee performance if it's connect directly to the computer. If I want to try this I'll have to spend $80 on two adapters so I'm not sure if I want to try that or just buy a newer interface. Just some FYI incase anyone else uses this. I know it's an older interface but Focusrite still sells them as thunderbolt compatible.
Hi, I’m having issues connecting through a thunderbolt hub on my MacBook Pro 2017... what hub did you use???

Thanks

Tim
