Hi,

Tried surfing the internet and if you are planning on using this for Macbook air and found a converter worth $49 online. You may visit Apple online stores.

Can anyone confirm that the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter supplies power?

I'm not sure if the Ultra Studio Mini Recorder will work with a Thunderbolt adaptor.

Edit: I can now confirm that the Ultra Studio Mini Recorder will work with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter.

yes, the Apple TB3/TB2 adapter (MMEL2AM/A) does supply power from the TB3 port to the TB2 device.

i am using a Ultra Studio Mini recorder with this adpater on both a touchbar MacBook Pro, and a Dell XPS15 9575
