Midi compatible usb expander?

Here for the gear

Midi compatible usb expander?

There are only two usb ports on my macbook pro, and I'm gonna need more, because I'm getting more gear soon. I have this usb expander thing that turns one port into four. I tried using my axiom through it, it works, except for the pitch wheel and aftertouch, and I imagine other things are messed up with it. I also tried hooking up my H4 zoom that I use as an interface, and it doesn't work at all. Does anyone know of a usb hub that will transmit all the midi data reliably and work with an audio interface?

This thing honestly looks really cheap and came with a laptop bag so, I don't have much confidence in it

Why not get a USB to midi interface instead?
