Hello. I need the most little keyboard to cover up two neccesities: to use it to work with DAWs, and to control a KROSS2 in live performances. I was thinking on buyin a microkey25, but then noticed that it lacks midi in/out ports. The 37key version has 2 usb ports, so the question is: can the microkey37 control the KROSS2 via those standard USB ports?

Not directly, since the Kross 2 cannot act as a USB host device. It could be done indirectly via a computer.

Or there is this device:

It might be worth emailing the company to check compatibility to be doubly sure, though one of the reviewers says it works perfectly with their microKeys MkII 49-key.

It doesn't work with devices that contain an integral USB hub; there is a link on the site to software that will allow you to check if the microKey has such an embedded device though, based on the reviews, an integral hub seems unlikely.
