    My laptop has 4 USB ports. When I run Quickshow, I use them as follows:

    1. Korg nanoKontrol
    2. FB3 #1
    3. FB3 #2.
    4. Enttec DMX

    I am thinking of adding a 3rd FB3. Might I need to add a powered USB hub, or would a 2-way splitter do?

    Some laptops are known that they are not yery generous with power on the USB ports.
    For stability I suggest powered hub.
