NanoKontrol with Hardware synth ?

Hello
I have a Nanokontrol that i use most of the time with Ableton Live.
It's great, and the knobfiesta + miniprice makes me wish i could use it with a knobless hardware expander as an hardware controller (like a PG200 for the JX-8P !).
But the unit is usb-powered and doesn't come with a midi connection (only a USB connection).
Would it work if i plugged the USB cable into a USB> MIDI cable, so i wouldn't have to power ON my computer to use it with my hardware synth ?
(i don't know if i'm clear enough ?)

Thank you for any tip, hint or experience sharing

your expander will not give power supply to your nano control imo :<

True true, at least it's a useful adapter that will probably outlive your nanocontrol for many years, plus will help out if you decide to upgrade. I'd be super interested to see a review of this thing.

Im also wondering If I could control my Hardware Synth Module ( That I use for Live performance with a Midi Keyboard) which has Midi In & Out with Korg Nanokontrol 2 ??
