Will MIDI Expansion box work with other "things"

I have a SoftStep on order, and haven't ordered the MIDI box because I will be going USB>MacBook for controlling stuff.

However, I own a Sonuus i2M audio-to-MIDI converter box I use with sax. It only has USB out, like the SoftStep. I would like to use it with a MIDI sound module, but as mentioned it is USB out only. Therefore, it send standard MIDI data out the USB port. So, that got me thinkin'.....

Does the KMI MIDI box just do a straight conversion of MIDI data coming in the USB port to serial MIDI data going out the MIDI port? Or is it a proprietary conversion so it will only work with the SoftStep? E.g., could I use it as a USB in to MIDI out converter for the i2M?

Thanks anybody!

Interesting question! I'd like to know too.

Edit: To restate the question, will the MIDI Expander work with any class compliant USB MIDI device to provide MIDI I/O ports?
