Hello. I'd just like to confirm if the USB Host port will work with any powered USB hub, including USB 3.0 ones.

    Although I don't ave experience with that specific model, you should be fine with backward compatibility when using a powered USB hub to add more USB-MIDI class complaint devices to your host port. Some class complaint USB-MIDI devices may only be USB 1.1, since the additional bandwidth is not required when your only dealing with a few ports of MIDI. Being a powered USB hub is key.

    Let us know if you have any other questions about the host port or additional USB-MIDI gear you may be adding.

  • I have a powered 7-port USB 3.0 that looks identical, but has another brand name. Works great.
