An odd Q here; I did a search but couldn't locate anything. Are any of you using a Windows laptop, an interface, and a docking station? IOW, with the interface connected to the docking station instead of directly into the laptop. If so, any issues with the interface being connected to the dock? I'm mostly concerned with clicks and pops in recorded tracks. Latency isn't an issue, as I'm monitoring off the interface, not the DAW.
In this case, it would be a Dell USB-C type, where the entire dock connects thru a single USB-C cable. Bringing in all the USB/network and even AC power over the USB-C.
Experiences? Anecdotes? Stories? Muffin recipes?

I can only speak as someone doing this on a Mac, but it works fine here. As long as the dock still has plenty of headroom, I don't see why it would be a problem. (Well, unless there's a specific chip mismatch between the particular dock and your interface or something.)
Docking station is just a hub with more features it should be no more of a problem than using all the USB jacks on your computer, remember unless they are spec’ed as being on different busses just assume they are all on the same buss. Of course their is something out there that will have a conflict with something so experiment.
