i have a powered usb hub too as it is usb powered the mpc studio mk2 is
are these mpc controllers able to be standalone midi controllers on there own
without having to be tied to a computer?
if not your prolly SOL unfortunately.
these types of things are usually not designed in this way.
an MPD controller would work in a heartbeat prolly tho
no extra midi usb host would be needed either (rk006)
as the Z is a usb midi host itself
gabe miller music on youtube was able to connect a microfreak to it with midi cables but he still had it connected to computer so…
