USB 1 only has bandwdith of about 12Mb sec whilst usb 2 has about 480Mb ( if i remember correctly) sec so it can handle far more audio channels and midi channels. Latency shouldnt be too much of an issue unless your using all available USB ports on your computer in which case your just jamming the USB bus on the Motherboard and there is no real solution to that short of using a PCI based expansion card. That can still be problematic if you have a few things (such as wireless cards and audio cards) on the PCI bus as is can only go as fast as the slowest card present. Generally tho jamming the USB bus s hard and youd have a lot of stuff running on it all at once to do it.
