I do not have experience with the presonus and your laptop!
Why the USB hub?
Do not make it too hard.....first check if the presonus 22 vsl works with your laptop, i.e. you can play with 64 buffer size.....often this will not work because the usb chip implementaion on the computer side is suboptimal (you cannot change this, i.e. you have to built, get a computer around the soundcard!)I. Is the drive fast enough to deliver the samples?, you often need a second drive or and something faster than 5400 type drives in laptops.
User Rockdude has experience with Megadrum.....I (using the VH11) never tried it....has the megadrum USB to send MIDI???? In German Forums the Megadrum has a mediocre performance, rep. but ask Rockdude here.....
My recommendation, buy/lend a RME Babyface (for laptop mac or pc) or a RME AIO (mac or pc with pci slots) and compare them with the Presonus on your system....or another/second systems of a friend....check if the latency is good enough for you and the performance is flawless, only that matters! Can you play with other sources like Itunes, you tube without probs.....Check the TD10 TD12 if the VH11 is good your playing/performance....if so....you have to wait to implement other solutions, as far as I know the VH11 does not work with other solutions like drum trigger/megadrum, you can only add additional pads.
Save time! Time is money!
If comparing/evaluating/getting the best performance for bfd2, use platinum samples rock legend kit, there you can feel the best playing experience....big improvement/difference.
