This is a great little compact midi host unit that works very well with my Novation Launchkey 49 controller. It works as a midi out going into to a variety of midi devices such as the Roland DS 88 and the Roland JV 1010.
It also powers the Novation keyboard through the USB cable.
Coming from China, it took a while to get here but the company helped with the tracking and has been very helpful with advice throughout the process. In fact, I have not seen a company that is this helpful and seems to back their product to this extent.
I would recommend this product to any musician who needs a midi host adapter. Just check your midi units as advised on the Excel website before hand.
I found that a common cell telephone 5 volt charger works just fine with a mini-usb cable (not a cell phone-type cable) to power the unit. The company will provide the cable if you request it.
