Good idea, I got one of these for the UMIK-1, it seems to work OK altho haven't done a calibration yet

www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-Cable-Type-C-ma...lack-3m/232645382127

That is 3m, a 5m cable doesn't seem to work so well.

OK but the thread is about Type C/3.1. to USB 2 which is a different spec.

Well, it uses just one pair of D+ and D- pins and requires a resistor on the CC pins before USB C will provide Vbus. In other words it reverts to USB 2 spec to be able to talk to the USB 2 SHD Device. So different connector, same spec. Looked at another way, USB C connectors have little benefit when connected to a USB 2 device, but at least they are backwards compatible.
